Liposuction is normally advised only if lifestyle changes have not achieved the desired results. It can treat areas of fat that are resistant to exercise and diet.
When an individual gains weight, each fat cell increases in size and volume. Liposuction reduces the number of fat cells in isolated areas.
People should discuss the pros and cons of liposuction with their doctor before deciding on whether to proceed. Liposuction should only be carried out after careful consideration.
Results are subtle rather than dramatic.Liposuction is cosmetic rather than health-focused.
The following body areas are commonly targeted for liposuction treatment:
flanks (love handles)
neckline and the area under the chin
thighs, both "saddlebags," or outer thighs, and inner thighs
