Despite diet and exercise, do you have an area of your body that never takes shape or size like the other areas of your body? Do “saddle bags”, “love-handles” or a lower belly pooch interfere with the proper fit and look of your clothes? Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, liposculpture or simply lipo ("suction-assisted fat removal") is a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from many different sites on the human body. Areas affected can range from the abdomen, thighs and buttocks, to the neck, backs of the arms and elsewhere. Liposuction is the second most commonly performed cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States. Modern techniques have made liposculpture a typically safe and reliable method for removing stubborn fat deposits and providing better contours to the human figure.
