In this procedure, called liposuction, extra fat is removed from certain body parts, such as the stomach, thighs, chest and hips. Liposuction is the best procedure for those people who have stubborn fat deposits, which do not go away with diet and exercise. In this procedure, small thin tubes are inserted under the fat layer and are connected to a large vacuum pump or suction syringe at the other end. These tubes remove fat from the areas where these are inserted. Fluid is injected into the areas from which fat is to be removed; this helps to prevent blood loss. Liposuction can be performed on several areas of the body at once.
9. Tummy Tuck:
In tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, excess skin and fat from the abdomen is removed. The skin is stretched tight over the stomach after removal of excess fat and skin, resulting in an impressively flat abdomen. Abdominoplasty, liposuction and other fat removal procedures can be performed in combination. The full abdominoplasty takes about three hours to be completed. Two long incisions are made, one along the pubic bone and the other to free the belly button from the surrounding tissue. The stomach muscles are tightened and excess fat and skin are removed, resulting in a tight and flat tummy.
