Body and Breast
Liposuction is a procedure to improve body contour by removing fat from specified areas through tiny incisions. It is recommended to reduce excessively stubborn localised fatty areas where dieting and exercise have failed. Liposuction may be combined with other weight loss treatments such as a tummy tuck or a facelift.
A pleasing abdomen has toned muscles, firm skin and shapely contours due to the right distribution of fat. The abdominal muscles provide structural support to the abdominal cavity, protect the abdominal organs and give counter-support to the spine. There are four major muscles namely: external abdominal oblique, internal abdominal oblique, transversus abdominis, and rectus abdominis.
Breasts consist of milk ducts and glands that produce milk during pregnancy; enclosed in a thick layer of fatty tissue. The breasts overlie the muscles of the chest. Advancing age may cause the breasts to droop or sag. Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as pregnancy and nursing can also cause the breasts to lose their natural shape and firmness.
