Liposuction is a minimally-invasive body contouring procedure that eliminates excess fat deposits that cannot be corrected with diet and exercise. Subcutaneous fat is a layer of your skin, and it is often the last type of fat that your body uses for energy. This is also the type of fat that causes bumps and bulges on your body. It is difficult to reduce this fat because your body holds it in reserve. Because we no longer depend on fat reserves for survival, it is safe to remove the excess fat cells with lipoplasty procedures. Fat reduction surgery can be performed on any area of your body or face to eliminate embarrassing bulges and uncover your natural contours.
