This is a surgical procedure where excess body fat is aspirated from determined regions of the body by using a “canule” (tube).
It is important to clarify that this is not a procedure for losing weight. The objective of liposuction is to remodel the body.
If a patient is overweight and shows uneven regions because of excess of fatty tissue, something that is quite common, liposuction will only remove the excess fat from the selected regions. After the procedure, the patient will continue to be overweight, since liposuction cannot remove fat from all regions.
