With the passage of time and constantly changing lifestyles of the modern world, obesity has emerged as a growing cause of concern. Though a healthy diet is always recommended as a natural way to lose weight, localized fat deposits can be dealt with by other methods. One amongst them is liposuction; where through the process of suction fat is removed from the body. In this process, fat is suctioned out through blunt tubes (Cannulas) that are inserted in the body through tiny cuts. The process of Liposuction targets only specific areas from where it excludes fat.

There are various methods of Liposuction that are used by doctors, like 

  1. VASER Liposuction
  2. Water Jet Liposuction
  3. Tumescent Liposuction
  4. Laser Assisted Liposuction

Like any other surgery, Liposuction also entails certain risks but with growing advancements of technology, it has become safer, more reliable and more frequently undertaken by people.

Here are some factors which explain why Liposuction is safe 

  1. Extremely effective with a lesser chance of regaining fat later: The process of Liposuction is extremely effective in removing fats from particular parts of the body. After the surgery, if the concerned person does put on weight, the area operated on remains unaffected. The additional fat appears on other parts of the body.
  2. Improvement in Body: The process of Liposuction safely and successfully changes the structure of the body by improving its contour. After the surgery, with the loss of fat the concerned person enjoys a better and a healthy body structure.
