Liposuction is a surgical procedure that permanently removes fat cells from the body. Through several small incisions in and around the treatment area(s), the surgeon dispenses a tumescent fluid before manually removing fat cells with suction. While the most common treatment areas include the thighs, abdomen, back and upper arms, liposuction can be applied almost anywhere on the body. Liposuction results typically develop over the weeks and months following surgery.
