Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed under anesthesia (intravenous sedation or general anesthesia). Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body from the face and neck area down to the arms, chest, mid-section, back, buttocks, thighs, knees, calves and ankles. The incisions in liposuction are very small. Next, a long, skinny tube called a cannula is inserted which sucks the fat out.

It is important to remember that liposuction is not a weight loss treatment or a replacement for healthy eating and regular exercise. Liposuction is designed to target localized areas of stubborn fat cells, not overall weight.
