Liposuction is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure in the world. The goal is to eliminate stubborn fat deposits that tend to settle in areas such as the neck, arms, abdomen, things, and buttocks. Unfortunately, exercise and diet don’t always address these problem areas. Traditional liposuction and high definition liposuction allows the cosmetic surgeon to sculpt your body to get rid of that fat excess and improve your overall tone.
Liposuction’s primary target is the fatty layer between skin and muscle. Its secondary target is the skin. The fat layer is treated by removing fat cells. This is most commonly performed with a suction cannula. The fat that is removed wont “come back” and the sculpted fat that remains helps provide your new shape and contour. While the cannula is busy removing fat, the skin is being stimulated to shrink. This helps the skin adapt to the new smaller body shape and size.
It is very important to have a stable body weight with a realistic diet and exercise program. A person who gains weight after liposuction will typically develop an odd and lumpy appearance where ever liposuction was performed. One who loses weight will typically improve in appearance up to a point. That point is when the skin can no longer contract to keep up with the fat loss. In this case, other surgical interventions may be needed to trim away and tighten the skin.
