Liposuction is the medical term for the cosmetic removal of fat. It is a safe and very common plastic surgery procedure. Typically, it is used to remove fat, which does not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction is not a “quick fix.” If improper eating habits and improper exercise routines continue, your improved body contour results may not last.
Rather, liposuction should act as a catalyst to improve one’s lifestyle. Once patients undergo liposuction to remove specific, problematic areas of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise, they often find themselves more willing and able to engage in an on-going, healthy exercise routine and diet.
Liposuction is surgery; you will be placed under anesthesia, a incision will be made, and a device called a cannula will be inserted that liquefies and removes fat. Recovery time will take anywhere from one week to one month.
Although there are risks, the post-surgical results are, quite simply, life changing! There are fat deposits on many people’s bodies, which cannot be removed by diet and exercise. Removing those deposits via surgery is, in many cases, the only option one has to remove those deposits at all.
Liposuction is not a diet program and it is not a lifestyle. Rather, liposuction surgery is best, and most effectively, used when used as a catalyst towards an overall, generally healthier style of life.
All in all, liposuction is a straightforward, safe cosmetic procedure.

In most cases, patients find their self-confidence skyrocketing after a liposuction procedure. This improved confidence leads many patients down the road to an overall healthier life-style, one that includes regular diet and exercise.
It’s important to note that liposuction does not prevent new fat from forming. Only proper diet and exercise can do that. However, most patients find that proper diet and exercise become a regular part of life post-liposuction.
