Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty ("fat modeling"), liposculpture suction lipectomy or simply lipo ("suction-assisted fat removal") is a cosmetic surgery operation that removes fat from many different sites on your body. Liposuction removes undesirable, subcutaneous fat in isolated areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. These areas include the hips, thighs, abdomen, knees, ankles, face, neck, and arms. Liposuction is most successful in people with good skin tone who are near normal weight but have localized fatty deposits. It is not a treatment for obesity.
Most effective body locations for man are the waist circumference and belly. Namely the areas named love handle, bagel, lower neck. For women again belly and waist hips, the extent of hipline pelvic cavity, the inner knees and the inner and upper parts of the legs, ankles, again low neck (jowl), the lower arms and back.
For us not everyone is a good candidate for liposuction in Cyprus Aesthetic Center. It is not an alternative to dieting or exercising. To be a good candidate, one must usually be over 18 and in good general health, have tried a diet and exercise regime. Diabetes, any infection, heart or circulation problems, generally nullify one's eligibility for the procedure. In older people, the skin is usually less elastic, limiting the ability of the skin to readily tighten. Certain medications that increase the risk of bleeding such as Aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, and some vitamins/homeopathic regimens should be discontinued before undergoing liposuction surgery. The results of liposuction surgery are usually long-lasting, but they may be affected by weight gain, aging, pregnancy and lifestyle factors. This is one of the most performed procedure in Cyprus and all over the world. Liposuction is very effective operation in contouring body part that is resistant to exercise and diet.
