Liposuction overview: 
Liposuction improves the appearance of body areas that have concentrated amounts of visible fat. Through a vacuum-like process, the fat is removed, creating a smoother, more attractive body contour and better self image. Various liposuction methods include the tumescent, fluid injection, ultrasound-assisted, and super-wet techniques. Common aras of treatment include the hips, waist, abdomen, thigs, buttocks, upper arms, neck, chest, and calves.
