Sometimes, even if you stick to a healthful diet and a regular exercise regimen, you can't seem to eliminate fat pockets and cells from your body's problem areas, especially in the legs buttocks, hips, stomach, arms, chin, neck, or. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that targets these problem areas and leaves your body more sculpted, toned, and lithe.

First, a small incision is made in the area to be liposuctioned. Next, a thin, hollow tube is inserted into the incision, and fat cells, and pockets are vacuumed out and discarded. The procedure, performed on an outpatient basis, is conducted under anesthesia and can last up to two or more hours. Common side effects include temporary bruising, numbness, soreness, and burning sensations, but most will subside within a few days' or weeks' time. Once the area has healed, the patient will notice a firmer, tighter physique.
