Exercise and diet will make you healthy, muscular and lean. It does not always remove those stubborn LFD's (localized fat deposits). Every individual's fat distribution and body shape is genetically determined. What this means is that often no amount of diet and exercise will remove these stubborn fat deposits. Liposuction removes fat and fat cells thus sculpting the body and doing what diet and exercise alone cannot. Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States today. Liposuction does not replace or serve as a substitute for good diet and exercise.
Lipoplasty, commonly known as liposuction, is a common surgical procedure that removes deposits of excess fat from specific areas of the body, face or neck. Liposuction can be used to slim the hips, thighs, flatten the tummy, shape the calves and ankles or eliminate a double chin.
The best candidates for Liposuction are:
- Men and women of normal weight who mainly want to improve their body shape and contours.
- People with fat deposits that are "trouble areas", where exercise and diet seem not to have any effect,
- People with good elasticity in their skin, so when the fat is removed, they will achieve a smooth appearance
