If certain parts of body like the abdomen, thighs, hips, waist, back, and arm have excessive fat, liposuction is a useful way to create a balanced body shape. The number of fat cells adults have in our bodies stays the same. We do not produce new cells, nor do we get rid of them naturally. Diet and exercise may shrink the size of our cells, but they don’t make them disappear. Liposuction removes isolated fat cells that do not generally respond to diet and exercise.
