Suction lipectomy is an excellent procedure for patients who are close to their ideal body weight, but have small areas of stubborn fat which does not resolve with exercise. Liposuction is not a substitute for healthy living and is not a weight loss procedure. Common areas where good results can be obtained by liposuction include:
– Hips and buttocks
– Abdomen and waist
– Upper arms
– Brassiere back roll
– Cheeks, chin and neck in certain well selected patients.
Selecting appropriate patients for this procedure is the most important part of ensuring a good result.
