Liposuction, also known as fat suction, suction lipectomy, tumescent liposuction, ultrasound assisted Lipoplasty or power assisted liposuction, is a technique to remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the face, upper arms, abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs; and the knees, calves and ankles.

Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing localized fat that doesn't respond to dieting and exercise. Liposuction can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but it won't necessarily change your looks to match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. 

Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them us. The best candidates for liposuction are of relatively normal weight but have pockets of excess fat in particular areas. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable, and realistic in your expectations. 

Most important, having firm, elastic skin will result in a better final contour. (Hanging skin won't reshape to your body's new contours, and may require an additional procedure to surgically remove the excess skin.) 

Suction lipectomy is not recommended if you've had recent surgery on the spot to be sculpted, if you have poor blood circulation in that area, or if you have heart or lung disease. You should also understand that liposuction by itself will not improve the dimpling skin know as cellulite. 

Consider the use of Endermologie for this concern. You may contact our About Face Botuique for an Endermologie consultation. 

Scars from liposuction are small and strategically placed to be hidden from view, even in a bikini. However, other cosmetic problems may occur. They may include rippling or bagginess of the skin over the treated area, and pigmentation changes that may become permanent if exposed to the sun. Asymmetry (uneven contour or shape) sometimes requires a second procedure. 

Suction-assisted Lipectomy is a highly effective technique for giving you a new body contour with very little scarring. The results can be permanent, providing you eat sensibly and exercise regularly. If you do gain weight, you'll probably gain it more uniformly throughout your body, not just in the former bulges.
