What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure designed to reduce fat, essentially by removing it with suction action.

Liposuction can be used on these areas of the body:

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is, instead, a fat reduction procedure. Liposuction is not designed to help people who are overweight or obese find a healthy weight, but it can help those dissatisfied with their figure or areas of problem fat finally have the look they crave.

During the liposuction procedure:

The tumescent liposuction itself is most often performed as an outpatient procedure in a doctor's office, but when very large quantities of fat are removed, an overnight hospital stay may be required. While they are not the same, liposuction is often performed alongside skin tightening procedures.
