Liposuction is ideal for people who are physically fit, as close as possible to their ideal weight, and have stubborn fat deposits that persist despite their best efforts. Liposuction is NOT for weight loss. It is to contour the body and help those who are close to their ideal body contour but need a little help.

This procedure helps to improve body shape by removing exercise-resistant fat deposits. Common locations for liposuction include chin, cheeks, neck, upper arms, above the breasts, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves and ankles.
