Liposuction, or Suction-Assisted Lipectomy, is used to reduce fat and accentuate contouring in targeted areas of the body. Liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss, rather, it is used to reduce large stores of fat in areas that have been resistant to diet and exercise; most commonly the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.

By contacting our representatives, we can set up your first consultation for liposuction with a trusted plastic surgeon. Getting a professional assessment prior to treatment will help to ensure that you're receiving the treatment best suited to your cosmetic goals.

Customers considering Liposuction might appreciate reading SignatureForum's list of featured Liposuction reviews from real patients. All customers are welcome to post their own review as well, and rate their personal experience with Liposuction.
