Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to remove areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Thin tubes called cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat cells and suctioning them out. Lipo can be performed on various body parts, including the abdomen and waist, hips and thighs, and cheeks, chin, and neck. It's important to note that liposuction is intended to improve body contour and not to significantly reduce weight, cellulite, or sagging skin. LEARN MORE ›

I have a pot belly that has stuck with me through all my sizes. At one time I was 260lbs...at my smallest 132lbs...even at my smallest I still had not only a under pooch but a very stubborn over the belly button pooch. I know I could probably benefit from a tummy tuck. I have stretch marks,... READ MORE

I want a small waist. My butt has always been big. No problems there. But as I lost and gained weight repeatedly of course the curves start vanishing and the rolls start appearing. I'm hoping to get this body fat gone from the places it shouldn't be and put to its right place. Saggy butt is not... READ MORE

I have been following multiple doctors as well as my final doctor of choice for some time now.
