A common misconception about liposuction is that it is a method for weight loss. In fact, liposuction is a means to contour the shape of the body rather than the removal of a dramatic amount of fat.
A Little Goes a Long Way
While each procedure is different and each person has unique goals for their body, generally speaking, very limited weight loss is achieved during a typical liposuction procedure.
Liposuction is about sculpting the body, not resizing. It may take as little a pound of fat removed to significantly change your shape.
