What is Liposuction and who are its real beneficiaries?
Liposuction is a procedure by which extra and unwanted fat can be removed from body without any scarring and hospitalization. It is not meant to reduce weight; rather it is done to improve the body contours and remove the resistant fat which can’t be lost by diet or exercise.
It is a safe procedure provided it is performed by a qualified and experienced Plastic Surgeon because the selection of patient and the quantity of fat to be removed demand a lot of expertise on part of the Surgeon.
Is Liposuction of other parts of body, other than tummy possible?
All parts of body except a few like eyelids can undergo Liposuction. For example arms, thighs, neck and back of chest are routinely lipo sucked. In such cases again the tone of skin is considered before making a decision. In case of loose and saggy skin excisional surgery is advised.
