Liposuction means removing excess fat from a wide variety of areas, such as the jowl, stomach, hips, thighs, knees, tibia, etc. The method is not a replacement for dieting but it can remove maximum 3,000–4,000ml of fat from body parts which are not affected by dieting and physical activity. It is a body contouring method, not a method for reducing body weight. Also, liposuction cannot significantly repair surface irregularities.
The skin after the surgery may be loose for a while, depending on the amount of fat removed in a given area, the elasticity of the skin, and the patient’s age. After the liposuction some excess skin may remain in the affected place, which, after consultation, can also be removed (simultaneously or subsequently).
