AKA Bodyjet Bodysculpting Liposculpture
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove unwanted fat from specific areas of the body that have proved difficult to reduce through exercise regimes or dieting.
Liposuction allows the surgeon to sculpt the body to a more desirable shape or contour and can help men and women of different ages to overcome the embarrassment caused by localised areas of excess fat. In women, commonly treated areas include the hips, waist, abdomen, thighs, neck, chin, jowls and arms. Men tend to have liposuction on the waist, abdomen, breasts and under the chin.
Liposuction can be used in other areas where improvement in the contour is required. It is important to remember that liposuction is not used for treating obesity or for losing weight, nor is it a substitute for a healthy lifestyle and exercise.
Traditional liposuction involves permanent removal of fat by suction through fine hollow tubes. The tubes are inserted under the skin through tiny incisions that leave behind very small and inconspicuous scars. There are several different techniques of liposculpture and the method employed depends upon the specific needs of the patient. Your surgeon will discuss the appropraite method for you during your consultation.
