Liposuction is the technique of removing unwanted fat from different areas of the body. The common areas suitable include: the abdomen (tummy); flanks (love handles); outer thighs (saddle bags); buttocks; hips; arms; and, neck. Liposculpture is the technique of sculpting the body be selectively removing fat from one area and adding fat to another.
Liposuction is usually performed under a general anaesthetic although for small areas it can be done under local anaesthetic. There are numerous ways of performing liposuction with a variety of different devices such as: power assisted; ultrasound assisted; laser assisted; water assisted; and, traditional liposuction. Mr Nassab has written a book chapter on liposuction in a plastic surgery textbook exploring the evidence behind these techniques. In general, the overall cosmetic outcome for all techniques is very similar.
