Liposuction is not an obesity treatment or a substitute for weight loss through diet and exercise. Neither is it an effective treatment for cellulite, the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks, or loose saggy skin.

Lipoplasty (“fat modeling”), Liposculpture Suction Lipectomy
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty (“fat modeling”), liposculpture suction lipectomy (“suction-assisted fat removal”) or simply lipo, is a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from various different parts on the human body. Areas affected can include the abdomen, thighs and buttocks, even the neck, backs of the arms and other places.
A number factors limit the amount of fat that can be safely removed in one session. Ultimately, the operating specialist and the patient make the decision. There are negative aspects to removing too much fat. For example you can get a “lumpiness” and/or “dents” in the skin which can be seen in those patients who have been “over-suctioned”. The surgical risk is greater the the more fat removed,
Tummy Tuck Procedure Before and After Preview
While reports of people removing 20 kg of fat have been claimed, the contouring procedure with liposuction can cause the appearance of weight loss to be greater than the actual amount of fat removed. The liposuction procedure may be performed under general, regional, or local anesthesia. The safety of the technique relates not only to the amount of tissue removed, but to the choice of anesthetic and the patient’s overall health.
It is ideal for the patient to be as fit as possible before the procedure and not to have smoked for several months.
Removal of very large volumes of fat is a potentially life-threatening procedure. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons defines “large” in this context as being more than 5 liters.
Commonly, liposuction is performed on the arms, abdomen, butt, and thighs in women, and the chest, abdomen, and flanks in men.
Liposuction is not a good alternative to dieting or exercising, in addition ne must usually be over 18 and in good general health, have an ongoing diet and exercise regimen, and have fatty pockets of tissue available in certain body areas.
In older people, the skin is usually less elastic, limiting the ability of the skin to readily tighten around the new shape. Liposuction of the abdominal fat should never be combined with simultaneous tummy tuck procedures due to higher risk of complications.
As techniques have been refined, many ideas have emerged that have made liposuction safer, easier, more comfortable, and effective. No Matter what we say here or anywhere for that matter, the best thing to do is find an expert, in your area or close with whom who you can commence and develop a relationship with. Get to understand the options that are relevant in your particular case, take time to properly consider your decision before proceeding.

Tummy Tuck and Mini Tummy Tuck
Although the results of a tummy tuck are technically permanent, the good outcomes can be significantly reduced by big fluctuations in weight.
A tummy tuck will not remove stretch marks, although these may be removed or reduced if they are located on the areas of excess skin below the belly button.
