Liposuction is a procedure which resculpts the body, removing collections of fatty tissue and smoothing out lumpy pockets of fat. Historically, liposuction is used to de-bulk a stubborn area of fat that is not eliminated solely by healthy diet and exercise. Many areas of the body can be re-sculpted with liposuction including the hips, buttocks, abdomen, love handles, back, knees, legs, neck and under the chin (submental liposuction).

Fat Transfer is a common procedure used in body contouring to restore volume loss, and can be done alongside liposuction. It transfers fat from areas such as thighs, buttocks and abdomen into areas to restore volume in face, breast or buttocks. Liposuction is an increasingly popular plastic surgery procedure, but there are a lot of options to choose from when it comes to effective fat reduction.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a good candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction cannot eliminate cellulite or correct loose, hanging skin. It is best suited for patients who have isolated fatty deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction works best when you have healthy, elastic skin with the capacity to shrink evenly after surgery. Only a certain amount of fat cells can safely be removed from the body, which varies among patients. Age is not a major consideration; however, older patients may have less skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin. Contact ICLS to find out if liposuction is right for you.
