This body contouring procedure is the country’s most popular surgical procedure. Its popularity can be mainly attributed to continuous improvements in liposuction techniques resulting in lower cost, fewer risks, and minimal downtime. While liposuction is popularly known as a way to remove excess fat in the abdomen, the procedure is also effective for eliminating pockets of fat in almost any part of the body including the chin, neck, arms, back, thighs, and calves.

Breast augmentation these days can be achieved either with implants (saline, silicone, or cohesive silicone gel) or fat transfer.

Each type of incision has its own pros and cons and choosing which one is best for you will depend on the type of implant you use, your preference for scarring, and any future plans to get pregnant.
