This procedure can take place in legs, thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, arms, back, chests, breasts, cheeks, and neck . The results are life changing. Liposuction is not a weight reduction surgery. Liposuction is done to improve and perfect contours. It can be done by itself or combined with other procedures. There are a variety of liposuction techniques . The most commonly used technique is tumescent liposuction, which uses a solution instilled into the fatty tissue to reduce blood loss and bruising.
Ultrasonic , laser and Vasser techniques are also used but less commonly. Technique using cold or heat to reduce fat are very unreliable and not widely accepted.
