Liposuction

Liposuction is that removes excess body fat or cellulite using a combination of a thin metal tube or cannula with a suction device.

It is not an alternative to weight reduction however surgeons can use it to modify areas which are resistant to dieting and exercise. Liposuction gives a small improvement rather than total removal of the cellulite. Some contour needs to remain for one to look balanced and normal. Removal of too much cellulite may create a secondary deformity.

Surgeons most often use liposuction on the abdomen and buttocks, breasts, chest and back, arms, legs, neck and chin. It may be used in conjunction with other abdominal procedures such as abdominoplasty or a reduction mammoplasty in order to get a more natural result.

This procedure is also often used solely for the treatment of male gynaecomastia or man boobs.
