The Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes deposits of fat in specific areas of the body that are resistant to weight loss and exercise. The fat cells that are removed will not be replaced in the body, however weight gain will increase the size of the remaining fat cells. It is extremely important to keep up good eating and exercise habits before, during, and after liposuction in order to maintain the results of surgery. The results of liposuction are not immediate, however, and do not appear overnight. Click to learn more about liposuction.
