Liposuction is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess fat deposits on the body, slimming and reshaping the body's contours. Areas of the body commonly targeted in liposuction include:
- Hips and buttocks
Though liposuction is used to remove excess fat deposits on the body, it should not be used as a substitute for a healthful diet and active lifestyle. It is also ineffective for the treatment of cellulite, or skin that has lost its elasticity.
