Liposuction is not meant for weight reduction. Large amounts of fat cannot be removed by this process. A maximum of a quart (liter) can be removed by the procedure. It is not meant for cellulite removal. For that lipo-shaving is more effective. However many surgeons are of the opinion that the areas containing cellulite are expected to improve in appearance after a liposuction performed.
Liposuction is a very common cosmetic surgery performed to remove stubborn fat from the skin. It is also known as lipoplasty and suction-assisted lipectomy. Performed by many to give a sculpted look to the body and beautify the overall look of the individual with proper contouring.
