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.

Dr Galante in one word is "genuine". His work is fantastic and he is as happy as you are with your results. My trouble area was my stomach and love handles after my hysterectomy. My waist went from 42 " to 34 " after liposuction. Amazing results! Very caring professional physician! I don't... READ MORE
