The concept of liposuction is surprisingly simple. Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the body's contour by removing excess fat from deposits located between the skin and muscle. Liposuction involves the use of a small stainless steel tube, called a cannula (from the Latin word for reed, tube, cane).


Tummy Tuck surgery?

Tummy tuck surgery should be a last resort for people who have tried everything else, including diet and exercise. This procedure should not be used as an alternative to weight loss. Also, if you're a woman planning on having a family, it's best to wait until you're through bearing children before having a tummy tuck.
