What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that takes away fat from specific body areas. It is a popular procedure for people who want to improve their body contours or eliminate stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise.
There are two important types of liposuction: traditional liposuction and laser liposuction. Traditional liposuction uses a cannula, a thin tube with a sharp tip, to suction out the fat. Laser liposuction uses a laser to heat and liquefy fat, which is suctioned out.
It is a safe procedure when implemented by a qualified surgeon. However, there are some risks associated with liposuction, including:
- Contour irregularities
- Seroma (fluid buildup)
- Allergic reaction to anesthesia
Liposuction results can be dramatic, but it is main to remember that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery. It is a body contouring procedure that can help to improve your body’s shape. [Liposuction] results can last for many years, but it is important to maintain a healthy weight after the procedure to prevent the fat from returning.
If you are considering liposuction, it is important to talk to your doctor about the risks and welfare of the procedure. You should also make sure to choose a qualified surgeon who has experience performing liposuction.

There are some exceptions to this rule.
