We are getting fatter. At least that is what the news reports seem to say every time we turn around. In the United States there is a sizable majority that is…well… sizable! People turn to diet and exercise to slim down but often will reduce their fat down to a stubborn pocket that simply refuses to leave. For these people, Liposuction surgery can help them get rid of the unwanted fat.
What is Liposuction anyway? Liposuction is a surgical procedure which removes fatty tissue (i.e. – adipose tissue) from beneath the epidermis (i.e. – skin). Liposuction surgery is performed by creating small incisions in the skin and then inserting a steel tube, called a cannula, into the tissue to be removed. The fat is then removed via a strong vacuum. The procedure involves the liposuction surgeon’s skill in determining where to move the cannula and how long to suck out fat in a particular location. A good surgeon can give your body a slimmer looking shape by making sure the fat is removed evenly.
Liposuction is performed anywhere where fat is deposited in large quantities. Areas such as the abdomen, breasts, back, arms and legs are the most common areas that are reshaped by liposuction surgery.
Liposuction is not a weight loss alternative however. Liposuction is best applied on patients who have gotten back in shape and now need to remove some of the last remaining pockets of fat. Liposuction surgeons will counsel every potential client to make sure that they are eating a proper diet and getting plenty of exercise before they opt for liposuction surgery.
If you are one of the people who are a perfect candidate for Liposuction and you want to remove that final “pudge” once and for all, you might consider Liposuction surgery as a way to banish it from your body.
