Liposuction helps to sculpt the shape of the body through the removal of unwanted fat. It can be used on the neck, arms, chest, abdomen, back or thighs. Liposuction can be done at the same time as most other procedures, but is most commonly done with a face lift, tummy tuck or breast lift. In addition, the fat which is removed can be used to augment other parts of the body, such as the cheeks or lips.
After surgery, you will need to wear a compression garment like a girdle for approximately 6 weeks. Final results can take up to 6 months, but are long lasting.
