This is without a doubt, one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery. This procedure has been modified in many different ways, but its essence and basic principles remain the same. Ideal candidates for liposuction will have “stubborn” areas of fat that simply cannot be reduced. Most patients will complain of exercising and dieting properly, to no avail of certain areas. In these cases, liposuction is the ideal solution. The most common areas that are addressed are the abdomen, “love handles”, lower back, and upper back.
To perform this surgery, the team will make very small incisions that are very well concealed. It is through these incisions, that the fat will be extracted.
