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.

I am fortunate enough that i never got stretch marks with my (now 32 yrold) son back in the day. I have however started to get a hanging belly on one side of my abdomen. It wasn't too bad, but it made clothes, pants especially fit awkward. I looked into a tummy tuck, but did not want the scar. I... READ MORE
