By removing stubborn fat, Liposuction can help you achieve smooth and toned body contours, and remove undesirable areas of stubborn fat. In addition to improving your appearance, fat removal through Liposuction can also help provide benefits to your overall health. For many patients, this procedure can reflect a commitment to a healthier, more active lifestyle. After achieving improved body contours, many patients become motivated to help maintain results through strict diet and exercise regimes.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure used to remove focal accumulations of fat underneath the skin. The length of the procedure will vary with the amount of fat being removed. The best results are achieved when applied to areas of focal contour deformity. The most frequently treated areas are the hip, outside thigh, inner thigh and flanks.

This process results in a smoother, remodelled body shape.
