Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed procedures. It is a very effective procedure to improve body contour. The most common areas to benefit from liposuction are lower abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), hips, thighs and neck. The procedures can be performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the individual and the area of surgery.
