Liposuction is a procedure where fat is removed from the body by loosening & sucking it out with the help of a suction apparatus. Fat collections around the hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, upper chest, etc. can be reduced by this procedure.
Liposuction is neither a substitute nor a cure for obesity. It is a procedure more useful for body contouring by removal of fat from particular areas. But, of course there is an overall reduction in body weight.
