Liposuction is to remove stubborn fat from selective areas of the body, like abdomen, flanks, thighs, buttocks and arms. And this is to only remove the fat which causes a bulging appearance. The surgery is the only minimal invasive procedure for body contouring, which can be done under local anaesthesia only. The procedure involves inserting a specially designed cannula into the treatable area via small adits. The surgeon uses to the cannula to separate the fat from the skin and superficial layers of muscle. Once the fat is separated from the skin and muscles, it turns into a liquefied substance which is drained out of that particular area via an aspirator connected to the cannula with a tube.
This is the basic course of the procedure which can either be done manually, or with specially designed equipments such as with ultrasound assistance or laser assistance. Typical brand names like Vaser lipo (http://www.liposuctionlondon.org.uk/

This surgery is done under general anaesthesia and takes prolonged downtime of 3-4weeks. The end result can be a flatter abdomen, but it won’t meet the requirement of removing stretch marks or skin variations.
Body lifting, or lifting of selective areas of the body is achieved with similar principles as that of tummy tuck, by removing sagging skin and fat.
