Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty ("fat modeling") is a remarkable yet relatively simple & safe cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from many different sites on the human body & helps to improve the contours of the body. The process involves the insertion of a slender, hollow metal tube or cannula, through a small incision, and by repeated movements, fat globules are separated and removed by vacuum suction through this tube. Incisions are small and are concealed in a skin fold near the site to be reduced, thus scars are virtually undetectable. Usually only one small incision is needed for each specific area. The area treated is injected with various solutions prior to insertion of the cannula, in order to reduce bleeding and to assist breakdown and loosening of the fat globules. Any part of the body can be treated by liposuction including abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arm, chin and others.
