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.

My transformation journey started in June 2013 when I finally decided to lose the 100+ pounds I had been carrying for too many years. Although I had a few ups and downs on the scale, how I lost the weight was through a change in my eating and exercise habits. After a steady progression and... READ MORE

So no matter what weight I've been I've never been happy with my upper arms so I've usually kept them covered even in warm weather. I did seem to have extra fat in that area which was really not in proportion with the rest of my arm and I was also really not happy with the shape, my arm went... READ MORE
