You eat right and you exercise. So why is it so hard to get rid of some deposits of body fat? Liposuction is a procedure that can help get rid of body fat deposits not affected by diet or exercise. It is not a cure for obesity and is best for patients who have healthy diet and exercise habits. Also called lipoplasty, liposuction is often used to remove fat deposits from legs, stomach (can be done in conjunction with a tummy tuck), chest (can be done in conjunction with a breast reduction), back, neck and arms. 

The liposuction procedure involves a hollow tube passed through a small incision. The tube loosens excess fat and then removes it through suction. 

Once any post-surgical swelling goes down, you will see a smoother, more contoured figure without the problem fat deposits.

With a continued healthy lifestyle, liposuction results are long lasting.
