Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is a body sculpting procedure which removes targeted pockets of fat. You should be at or very near your ideal weight before undergoing the procedure. The only weight you lose during liposuction is the weight of the fat we remove, which is nominal, so there is no significant weight loss associated with the procedure.

What Liposuction Does for Your Look

Liposuction is ideal for patients who have come close to achieving their weight loss goals, but cannot attain the beautiful shape they desire, due to residual pockets of fat which are resistant to diet and exercise.

Fat creates volume in your body. Liposuction reduces body size and creates beautiful contours by reducing volume, not by extracting its weight. It works by reducing the thickness of fat layer that exists between skin and muscle layer of the body.

Liposuction can be used virtually anywhere on the body where you have stubborn pockets of fat, including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms, bra strap area, and chin. Pockets of fat in these areas can undermine the look you are trying to achieve with weight loss. Removing even a small area of fat, such as a double chin, can make all of your hard work more visible and complete.
