Liposuction: What it can and can not do

A few extra pounds have snuck up on you and liposuction may be your answer. Remember that liposuction is not for general weight loss. Liposuction is used t get rid of specific areas of fat such as love handles, lower abdomen, or outer thighs. Liposuction is performed through small poke holes, laser energies used to break down the fat into oil that can be easily sucked out. There is always some bruising, but recovery is quick. You can be back to work in a few days and back to full activity in one week. Liposuction is safe when done in skilled plastic surgeons hands.
