Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and a fit body is a huge achievement that any man and woman can be proud of, but sometimes we need a little extra help to get us to our peak form, and that’s where liposuction comes in.

With so many treatments and procedures available to help you look and feel younger, it can be difficult to decide which is the best option. Liposuction has the benefit of being and true method of effecting long-term fat loss and body contouring.
What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction, or liposculpture, is a procedure in which a tube called a cannula is used to remove fat from the body. The tube is inserted in the area where the fat is to be removed via several small incisions. You will be placed under anesthesia before the procedure so that you won’t feel any pain. Although liposuction is a procedure to remove fat from the body, it is best suited for people who are close to their goal body weight and have already attempted dieting and exercise. It is not a first-line treatment for obesity.
One of the advantages of liposuction is that it can be used to mobilize fat in a wide variety of areas on the body, not just the usual suspects of the hips and abdomen. Once this fat is gone, it’s gone for good. That being said, liposuction should be combined with an ongoing program of fitness and healthy eating. Areas commonly treated by liposuction include the following.
- Cheeks and neck
