Liposuction is one of the most well-known fat removal procedures in cosmetic surgery. With little to no scarring and usually permanent results, liposuction is a procedure that can help you achieve a slimmer, more contoured body.
Due to this, it is a common misconception that liposuction can simply suck away excess fat and help you lose weight. This is untrue. The procedure is designed to remove diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits around the body. While it is possible to lose a couple pounds after the procedure, this is only true of especially extensive cases. Usually, removing fat from multiple points. Rarely does liposuction remove more than ten pounds of fat.
The best candidates are those who have lost weight in other areas and need help removing stubborn pockets of fat from the areas resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction is also utilized during various fat transfer procedures like Brazilian butt lifts.
