Liposuction (Suction-Assisted Lipectomy)

Liposuction (Suction-Assisted Lipectomy): Is a technique to improve body shape using a tube and vacuum device to remove unwanted fat deposits that don't respond to diet and exercise. Locations include: chin, neck and cheeks, upper arms and above the breasts, the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and hip area. Liposuction is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing localized fat that doesn't respond to dieting and exercise.
