Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving your body contours and proportion. Despite good health and a reasonable level of fitness, some people may still have areas with disproportionate contours due to localized fat deposits. These areas may be due to family traits rather than a lack of weight control or fitness.
Liposuction physically removes the excess fat deposits in the problem areas resulting in a more balanced look. Liposuction does not treat cellulite or obesity.
