What is Liposuction?
Excess fat deposits tend to accumulate on various areas of the body as we age. While some people are fortunate enough to eliminate their fat tissue through diet and exercise, others are not as lucky. If you’ve been unable to reduce your body fat or have a few “trouble” areas where stubborn fat exists, then liposuction may be beneficial for you.
As one of the most popular cosmetic procedures around, liposuction safely removes fat deposits from the body using a cannula (thin hollow tube) and a specialized vacuum device.
