Reduce the number of fat cells to define any area of your body.
Liposuction for removing stubborn areas of fat
Our bodies are made up of a number of fat cells, which change in size but not in number as we gain and lose weight. Your diet and exercise can increase or decrease the amount of fat in each cell but will not affect the total number of cells or their distribution. If you have genetically inherited a large number of fat cells on your thighs and small numbers of fat cells on your arms, you will always have more fat on the thighs than on the arms.
The liposuction procedure
Liposuction can offer a new shape for people who cannot achieve their desired look naturally, and it is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. It involves removing fat below the skin through small keyhole incisions placed in strategic locations. While being a very useful and versatile surgical procedure to reduce fatty deposits in many areas of the body, liposuction is not used as a weight loss technique; instead it is used to treat and shape specific areas of fat deposition that have resisted the efforts of diet and exercise.
Dr Yang always does this procedure with a specialist anaesthetist in a properly accredited hospital.
