Liposuction is an outpatient procedure which removes excess fat deposits that cause localized bulges in various areas of the body. Through the use of various techniques, the body can be contoured by removing bulges to blend body outlines more aesthetically. Insurance does not cover this procedure.
Suction lipoplasty or liposuction removes excess localized fat deposits which cause localized bulges in various areas of the body. Through a tiny incision, small tubes or cannulas are used to suction away the fat deposits.
Suction lipoplasty is not designed as a weight reduction procedure. It is a contouring procedure which removes bulges to blend body outlines more aesthetically.
Fat deposits can cause localized bulges in the face and neck, upper arms, upper and lower abdomen, flank areas (love handles), inner thighs, outer thighs (saddlebags), buttocks, and knee areas and calves.
