Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes excess fat accumulated in undesirable locations on the body. Although the intervention is generally carried out on the stomach area, the patient can also undergo liposuction to remove fat deposits on their thighs, side, calves, knees, arms, or neck. Furthermore, liposuction can be used to transfer fat from one area to another part of the body to increase its volume.
This procedure has been carried out for more than 30 years and an experienced surgeon knows how to minimize the risks. Before undergoing liposuction, it is essential to meet the surgeon and make sure that your skin will react well to the procedure. Patients with a skin that is firm and elastic will have more chances of obtaining better results.
Liposuction results vary from patient to patient, that’s why it’s essential to have realistic expectations as to the cosmetic improvement of the affected areas. It’s also important to have good lifestyle habits in order to maintain long-lasting results.
The patient can expect a significant improvement in their silhouette, body shape, and proportions.
