Liposuction [fourthly_city] is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that is designed to improve the body contour of a specific area of the body that has been resistant to your diet and exercise efforts. Most all of us struggle with that one area of our body that doesn’t seem to change the way we want it to even as the rest of our body responds to our efforts to eat healthy and work out. The Liposuction procedure is performed through a tiny incision in the specified area through which a long, skinny tube is inserted that the fat is sucked out. The Liposuction procedure may be performed on virtually any area of the body from the thighs to the hips, the buttocks, knees, flanks, love-handles, abdomen, arms, legs and even the neck or cheeks. It is important to understand that while this procedure does remove fat, it is not a weight loss treatment. Ideal candidates are in good health, at a stable weight, and have realistic expectations for the procedure, and potential results.
