Liposuction is often the first thought in helping to achieve a flat abdomen. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that removes stubborn areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. It is ideal for people with good skin elasticity and muscle tone.
Through tiny incisions, a small tube with holes uses suction to remove isolated fat pockets. Specific areas for liposuction include the abdomen, love handles or sides, outer thighs, and certain areas of the back. Liposuction does not address excess skin, loose skin or abdominal muscles. For optimal results, it is best to be at or close to your ideal weight.
