If you want to improve the look of areas of your body where you just can’t get rid of fat, despite dieting and exercise, you may want to consider liposuction surgery. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving body contours and proportion. Areas that are commonly treated include the thighs, inner knees, abdomen, hips and buttocks, back, and the chin and neck. Liposuction can be performed alone, or with other plastic surgery procedures. Liposuction is not an effective treatment for cellulite, or for loose, saggy skin.
