Fat removal surgery (Liposuction)

Weight loss with healthy dieting and exercise may not affect some areas of fat deposits. Fat removal surgery (liposuction) can be a great way to improve body shape in areas that are hard to lose fat. A doctor can help evaluate and offer treatments of areas to help reach a patient’s goals.

Common areas of fat removal surgery (liposuction) are:

  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Belly
  • Buttock
  • Hips and flanks
  • Knees
  • Neck
  • Thighs

Fat removal surgery is usually done as an outpatient surgery, so the patient can go home and does not have to stay the night in a hospital.
