Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty ("fat modeling"), liposculpture

 suction lipectomy ("suction-assisted fat removal"), or simply lipo, is

a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from many different

sites on the human body. Areas affected can range from the abdomen,

 thighs, and buttocks, to the neck, backs of the arms, and elsewhere.

Several factors limit the amount of fat that can be safely removed in

one session. Ultimately, the operating physician and the patient make

the decision. There are negative aspects to removing too much fat.

Unusual "lumpiness" and/or "dents" in the skin can be seen in those

patients "over-suctioned". The more fat removed, the higher the

surgical risk. While reports of people removing 50 pounds (20 kg

or around 4 stone) of fat have been claimed, the contouring possible

with liposuction may cause the appearance of weight loss to be

greater than the actual

amount of fat removed. The procedure may be performed under

general, regional, or local anesthesia. The safety of the technique

relates not only to the amount of tissue removed but to the choice

of anesthetic and the patient's overall health. It is ideal for the

patient to be as fit as possible before the procedure and not to have

smoked for several months.
