Liposuction surgery is a popular body-sculpting procedure performed on hundreds of thousands of patients each year. This cosmetic procedure has made incredible advancements with its ability to efficiently and safely take away excess fat and flab, giving you a slimmer, more toned look. For those who are looking for a solution to stubborn fat deposits on their bodies, Dr. JoAnne Lopes may have just what you’ve been looking for.

Liposuction surgery is common procedure that can be completed using a variety of techniques, but the basics remain pretty much the same. A thin, hollow tube called a cannula is inserted through tiny incisions made near the targeted area of the body. The cannula is attached to a suction device, which is used to suction out fat.

This body-sculpting procedure can be used to reduce fat in areas including the abdomen, knees, upper arms, neck, thighs, ankles, chin, waist, hips, cheeks, chest, buttocks, and back. The amount of fat to be removed will be determined based on the patient’s goals and the appropriate recommendations.
