Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, is a surgical technique commonly employed to remove unwanted fat deposits from different areas of the face or body by suctioning them away. This procedure makes it possible to suction out fat cells without breaking the attachments that tie the skin to deeper structures. Liposuction can be performed on several areas of the body, such as the stomach, the thighs, the arms, the chest or the back. It is a body contouring solution that produces amazing results.
For patients concerned with a double chin, chubby cheeks, or sagging jowls, liposuction allows for a slimmer facial silhouette.
Some patients may wish to transfer fat from one area of the body to another in order to bring more volume and shapeliness to their natural features. Such a procedure is known as fat grafting and can be combined with a body liposuction.
