Several years ago a new procedure, liposuction surgery, was perfected by a French physician. The procedure allows both men and women to improve the contours of their bodies through this relatively simple and safe technique.
Liposuction surgery involves the removal of fat cells from the body and is designed for those who have specific areas of localised fat deposits and who have tried unsuccessfully to eliminate them through diet, exercise and weight loss.
While the procedure is not designed to correct general obesity, any areas where excess fat deposits have accumulated can be treated, these include the chin, neck, jowls, cheeks, arms, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, knees, hips and abdomen. Men with gynaecomastia (enlarged breasts) can also benefit from this procedure.
Men and women in good physical condition with good skin elasticity are the best candidates for this surgery. When the procedure was first introduced, only younger people were considered to be good candidates, however recent improvements in the technique have made it possible to treat patients of all ages. Each person seeking this treatment, regardless of age, must be personally assessed by the surgeon to determine if he or she is suitable for liposuction surgery.
