Patients who have maintained a healthy weight and want to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise can turn to liposuction for assistance. Liposuction sculpts targeted areas to delete unwanted fat cells permanently. This cosmetic procedure uses the latest medical technology to remove fatty tissue with less scarring and more precision.
