Liposuction describes a simple, technique of sucking out unwanted fatty tissue, from areas
where it has accumulated leaving you without unattractive bulges. It is one of the most
common and popular cosmetic surgery procedure. While primarily a cosmetic problem, liposuction
patients often describe the unattractive body image as having an impact has on their
social and personal life, restricting the clothes they wear, avoiding the beach or swimming
pools and being withdrawn and hesitant to expose themselves even to close friends.
If despite a stable body weight, healthy lifestyle consisting of diet and exercise, you have been unable to shift the bulges from your double chin, chest, arms, tummy, flanks, love handles, hips, back, buttocks, or thighs then you are an ideal patient for liposuction.
The enormous numbers of technology and devices targeted at this market clearly show that there is no technology as yet which is on par with Liposuction. All the devices like Cool Sculpt, Zeltiq, Focused and Non Focussed Ultrasound Cavitation, ULipo, UltraShape, TruSculpt Zerona, SculpSure suffer from the same Achilles heel problem, while most of them can damage the fat cells to an extent, there is no reliable mechanism in our bodies to take the fat away after it has been dissolved. In liposuction all the unwanted fatty excess sits in a bottle outside you at the end of the procedure, giving you reliable, reproducible and long-standing results (if you maintain your healthy lifestyle).
