Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes localized fat deposits beneath the skin through small incisions using a hollow stainless steel tube (cannula), with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. Currently the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States, liposuction can be performed on a number of body areas such as thighs, hips and buttocks, abdomen and waist, upper arms, back, inner knee, chest, checks, chin and neck and calves. Liposuction can be performed alone or in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures like facelift, breast lift, breast reduction, or tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). Liposuction is not a substitution for proper diet and exercise, nor is it an effective treatment for obesity or cellulite.
