Liposuction is a general term for the removal of fat using a minimally invasive technique with small incisions and small suction cannulas. It can be performed in multiple areas on the body and neck. The procedure is designed to decrease the thickness of the subcutaneous tissue and shape the areas of treatment. It can be performed with multiple types of suction devices and sizes of liposuction cannulas. In some situations this technique can be combined with other excisional procedures, which remove excess skin, such as tummy tucks and arm lifts. Dr. Farkas will discuss the technique that will give you the optimal result in each region.
