Certain areas of the body may be disproportionate or have more fatty deposits than normal. Even with exercise, these fatty deposits can remain untouched. In these cases, the best way to achieve a toned body is through the process of liposuction. With the help of board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Mohit Sood, liposuction can help provide you with a slimmer appearance.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is the process of removing excess fatty deposits by suctioning them away. Although it can be done on any area of the body, it is most commonly performed on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and upper arms. Liposuction can also be performed in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries, such as a tummy tuck.

Benefits of Liposuction

The biggest benefit to liposuction is that it changes the contours of your body to make problem areas shapelier. It makes these areas appear tighter and firmer, allowing you to achieve a more toned look.

How Is Liposuction Performed?

First, the area that you want to be suctioned is numbed with local anesthesia. A series of incisions are then made in the treated area. A thin tube, known as a cannula, is inserted underneath the skin to suction the fat cells into a vacuum. Finally, the wound is closed up.
