What is liposuction? Liposuction is a cosmetic operation during which excess fat is removed from a specific area of the human body. It is used to destroy fat that cannot be driven away by diets or exercises (for example, abdomen liposuction). Usually, it is necessary to make the body more proportional, improve its appearance, and adjust its shape. Liposuction is the most rational solution if you are dreaming of losing weight quickly, and getting rid of local deposits (not losing weight). In rare cases, liposuction is used for severe obesity, when it is necessary to reduce the amount of fat as soon as possible and by any means, because being overweight poses a threat to the patient’s life. Liposuction also helps to remove lipomas.
