Liposuction treats localized excess fat deposits that are usually genetic in origin. When the unwanted fat is removed the remaining fat and skin tighten up over the next 3-6 months giving the new smoother appearance.
As we age our skin loses the ability to firm up so usually people 50 or older are not good candidates for liposuction unless it is combined with excess skin removal. Liposuction is not a weight loss technique.
Fat removed does not redistribute to other parts of the body.Recovery from liposuction usually takes 1 week.
