Liposuction, more casually known as “lipo”, is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess fat from the body to reshape or slim specific areas. This can improve the contour and proportions of the body. Treatment can be performed on numerous areas of the body, including the calves, ankles, inner knee, chest, back, upper arms, thighs, hips, buttock, waist, and abdomen. This procedure can be completed on its own or in conjunction with other surgeries such as breast reductions, tummy tucks, and face lifts. Liposuction does not treat obesity and should not be considered a substitute for exercise and diet. It also cannot cure cellulite. Cellulite are dimples in the skin that can appear in loose or saggy areas such as the thighs, buttocks, and hips.
