Liposuctioning your waistline can help reduce fatness but not increase fitness, reveals a new study.
The ultrasonic method introduces high-frequency sound waves and mechanical vibrations with a hand-held cannula placed into or on top of skin or fatty tissue to gently break down and liquefy the fat cells prior to liposuctioning. The fat is then removed via tumescent liposuction under local anesthesia.
