Liposuction is meant for individuals that have a responsible diet and persistent areas of fat accumulation. Heredity plays a great role in body type, including areas of fat deposits. Some people are genetically predisposed to carry fat cells around the hips and buttocks, while many others naturally carry fat cells around the abdomen, thighs, arms, face and/or back. These stubborn problem areas are very difficult to shed through diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is an excellent option to reshape these problem areas.
