Liposuction is a way to remove excess fat from some parts of your body, like your belly, hips, or thighs. It helps shape these areas. Once the fat is removed, it usually doesn't return because your body can't produce new fat cells there. However, to stay healthy, it's still important to eat well and exercise after the procedure.
