Liposuction or lipoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure to extract body fat through small incisions. This procedure does not leave scars in the body. It is the perfect method if you need to remove fat that deforms your body structure.
Liposuction surgery is for those patients who have good health and realistic expectations of the results of this procedure: liposuction offers amazing results but not perfection.
Even though age is an important factor in determining who is a good candidate for this surgery, general health conditions are even more important. Ideal candidates are those who have gone on diets and/or exercise plans and still have unattractive body fat.
Overweight patients can benefit from this surgery; even though it is not a weight loss treatment, it offers good results. Nevertheless, the ideal condition is a person whose weight is close to normal. There are no age limits for liposuction.
Procedure – Liposuction has become the most popular aesthetic surgery procedure. This type of surgery improves the physical appearance of the person and shapes irregular shapes through the elimination of unwanted and excessive fat. It is sometimes called body shaping.

Hospitalization – Hospitalization depends on the area treated and degree of surgery.
Time – The duration of the procedure will vary according to the parts of the body involved; it ranges from one and a half hours to three hours.
