Some people retain fat in areas that do not respond to weight loss techniques and procedures. For such people, the best option to get a sleeker, contoured appearance is Liposuction; a technique that uses a simple suction device to remove the accumulated fat from particular areas of the body.

There are various Liposuction techniques that plastic surgeons can employ but all of them work on the principle of suction. The procedures can be completed either by using a general sedative [anesthesia] or an oral sedative. The use of the sedative will depend on the comfort level of the patient, amount of fat to be removed, and which area of the body is under consideration.
