Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to improve body contour by removing areas of fat that've been resistant to diet and exercise. It's important to note that lipo is not intended to significantly reduce weight, cellulite, or sagging skin. Here's how it works: Thin tubes called cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat deposits that are then suctioned out. Lipo can be done on various body parts including the abdomen and waist, hips and thighs, and the cheeks, chin, and neck.

So, I'm finally doing it. A few years ago, I lost about 100#. Even then, I had back rolls. Not biscuits, big buttery ROLLS. I've since gained about 30#, but I'm holding steady. Still, I decided I want the rolls gone, and since I had so much to work with, I thought I'd go ahead and buy the... READ MORE

I was considering CoolSculpting for my flanks top but was skeptical about its effectiveness on this particular area. The fat here is pretty firm and I don't think the machine would suck it in nicely. I got a sweet deal for tickle lipo (50% off) and decided to go for it. I would discourage... READ MORE

No matter how low my body fat percentage I've always had a tummy and I've always been very self conscious of it. It's finally the right time for me to do surgically what can't be done through working out. But what is the best path for me? Smartlipo, abdominalplasty, or liposuction? After... READ MORE
