Liposuction is a surgical procedure that is performed to eliminate undesired fat deposits. Also known as lipoplasty, liposuction can be performed to achieve a more attractive physique. Liposuction is performed in body areas such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, legs, hips, knees, calves, ankles and buttocks. With liposuction, several areas may be addressed at the same time. For individuals who fail to completely remove fat deposits with exercise and caloric restriction, liposuction is a great method to achieve faster results. If liposuction is appealing to you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Schneider of Artisan Plastic Surgery located conveniently in Joliet, Illinois.

How Is Liposuction performed?
A medical device called a cannula is utilized in liposuction. It is a thin, hollow tube that is coupled with a machine that produces suction. The cannula, is placed into the desired area through one or more small incisions (located discreetly to prevent visible scars). The cannula is moved through the fatty tissue and any excess fat is removed through suction.
