Liposuction is a procedure to remove exercise-resistant fat deposits with a tube and vacuum device to recontour one or more areas of the body.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) is a new technique in which an ultrasound probe is used to liquify or "melt" the fat.
Common locations for liposuction include abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, neck, and upper arms.
It can dramatically reduce the appearance of a protruding abdomen. Loss of skin elasticity in older patients
will not be improved by liposuction alone.
The results of liposuction can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence.
The best candidates for liposuction are men and women who are in relatively
good shape but are bothered by fat deposits that won't respond to diet or exercise.
