Liposuction has remained one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for decades because it is a tried and true option for precisely targeting and eliminating stubborn pockets of fat in order to enhance the shape and overall appearance of the body. While liposuction can provide beautiful and natural-looking results, it is important to understand what is possible through liposuction so that you know if you are a good candidate for the procedure.

The Benefits of Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical body contouring procedure that is a great option for eliminating excess bulk around different areas of the body. Liposuction can be used to eliminate fat from areas of the body where fat can be stubborn and difficult to get rid of like around the stomach, thighs, and even underneath the chin. Liposuction can help to get rid of excess fat around the upper arms and areas like the hips and flanks to help enhance the contours of your figure.

It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss option. Liposuction does remove fat from the body, but not in large quantities. The goal of liposuction is to enhance the shape of the body through the precise removal of excess fat. Good candidates for liposuction should be close to their ideal weight. Liposuction cannot tighten loose skin. If there is loose excess skin along with excess fat, other surgical body contouring procedures may be better suited for the job. Procedure like an arm lift, tummy tuck, or thigh lift are designed to address loose excess skin.
