If you are bothered by sections of unwanted fat that have proven resistant to diet and exercise, you may want to consider liposuction. Ideal candidates for liposuction are within reach of their ideal weight and are looking to contour and improve parts of the body. Patients should have firm, elastic skin with adequate muscle tone. Candidates should be in relatively good health, be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for surgery.
During a liposuction procedure, tiny incisions are made in the skin and a small tube is inserted which loosens and removes excess fat, similar to a vacuum. Results are apparent as soon as swelling subsides. Though liposuction offers permanent results, it does not prevent future weight gain.
