Liposuction is a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess adipose tissue. Is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries.
All fat mass is divided into three layers, which differ from each other in location and features of metabolism.
1st layer – superficial, located between the skin and fascia, which cover the muscles in all parts of the body, varies in thickness and density. This layer determines the proportions and contours of the figure, can be adjusted with different types of liposuction.
2nd layer – deep, located under the muscular fascia. Practically not amenable to surgical correction, little inclined to decrease during sports and diets.
3rd layer – visceral (inner), located in the abdominal cavity. Its pronounced hypertrophy can manifest itself in the form of “beer” (convex and elastic) abdomen for men. For this layer of adipose tissue, liposuction may not give a noticeable effect.
