Liposuction is a form of cosmetic surgery in which deposits of fat are removed to reshape or reduce one or more areas of the body. Common areas targeted include thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, neck and under the chin.

Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction or a cure for obesity. Having liposuction will not help prevent cardiovascular disease or improve your general health and wellbeing.

Liposuction can be used to remove ‘pockets of fat’. Body image concerns are the main reason people consider liposuction. Some people of normal weight have localised pockets of fat that does not respond to diet or exercise. Common sites include the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, upper arm, neck and beneath the chin.

Liposuction Los Angeles is best suited to normal weight people with firm, elastic skin who have pockets of fat in certain areas. To be suitable for liposuction you must be physically healthy, psychologically stable and have realistic expectations. Although age is not a significant concern, older people may have less skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger person with tighter skin.
