When exercise and dieting can't get rid of that one area of your body that's been nagging you, liposuction could be your answer. Also known as lipoplasty, the liposuction surgery procedure is a popular cosmetic technique that can remove fat deposits in specific areas of the body. This is usually achieved by inserting a probe into the body, liquefying the fat, and then extracting it. Of course, there are a variety of techniques with varying results, and each target area brings its own specific concerns.

The key fact about lipoplasty is that it is not an alternative to exercising and eating well. It is still a surgical procedure and it brings with it a lengthy healing process, and the possibility of health complications. There's also the question of cost. As with all cosmetic operations, liposuction doesn't come cheaply. It's an investment of time and money, but one that can have great results for your body.

How will you know if liposuction is for you? Well, first of all, you should be a healthy person in both mind and body. Second, you should have healthy skin that has good elasticity. That's because once the fat is removed, your skin will need to respond to the new contour of your body. Lastly, you should have some pockets of fat that you've been trying to work off, but just can't get rid of. It's nothing to be ashamed of, really, because some fat is an inherited trait that can't be treated with exercise and dieting. If you're tired of a problem area in your body that makes you look disproportionate, then liposuction surgery could be your answer.

On average, less than 10 pounds of fat are removed from the body in a single operation. That's because the procedure also involves some blood loss that must be counter-acted by intravenous injections. Though losing 10 pounds in one shot can sound like a great way to lose weight, lipoplasty is only a method to contour the body. You might have heard of people losing 50 pounds of weight in one liposuction surgery, but that's completely exaggerated. There's no way that skin could accommodate that kind of change without additional surgery to remove excess skin. Such secondary operations often leave scarring, and that's why the average liposuction procedure is still below 10 pounds of fat.

Liposuction has been helping men and women overcome their problem areas for many years. It's a safe procedure in an established field. Every imaginable place in the body where fat can accumulate has been subjected to lipoplasty procedures before, so there isn't a problem that your doctor can't help with. Undergoing a cosmetic operation is not an easy decision, and finding the best information is important.
