Before starting on the details of liposuction, let me tell what liposuction really is. Liposuction which is also known as lipoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure or should I say a slimming technique which removes deposits of unwanted fats from the body, slims and reshapes specific areas of the body which results in enhancing and improving your self-image and body.
There are several types of liposuction methods available like lasers or ultrasounds which are used to melt the unwanted fat to make the procedure much easier which causes less skin damage but a cannula and a suctioning device are employed in all of the liposuction methods.
Do keep in mind that liposuction surgery is not a replacement for exercise or a treatment for obesity, it is used to remove those stubborn fat deposits which we are unable to get rid of with our daily exercise routine.
