Liposuction – vacuum assisted lipectomy – implies vacuuming the unwanted regional fat depositions in order to correct the body contour.

Those body parts are as follows;

  • Jaw
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Breast
  • Abdomen
  • Low back
  • Gluteal region
  • Buttocks
  • Knee

Liposuction is a modality used for persistent fat depositions that cannot be eliminated with traditional methods, but it cannot replace diet and exercise. Best candidates of liposuction are the people who have normal or almost normal body weight along with fat depositions in certain parts of the body. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. It is necessary to wear corset for several weeks afterwards. Potential swelling and bruising disappear within several weeks. It takes two to three months to see the final body contour.
