Many areas can be treated with liposuction, such as; the chin, neck, chest, abdomen, hips, back, inner and outer thighs, or knees.underneath the skin.
Abdominoplasty may be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as Fat Grafting (Fat Transfer) or Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) to create slimming body contours.
