Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess fat from certain regions in the body. This procedure is done by inserting a tube into the fatty tissue and sucking out the fat through a vacuum. The use of liposuction has increased dramatically in recent years, with over 1 million procedures performed annually. One of the most effective types of liposuction is micro liposuction which requires a small incision to be made in the skin and the fats are liquified by inserting a laser through the incision. Micro liposuction is mainly used for removing fat from the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks. So, the answer to this question is yes! Liposuction can work on the abdomen. The most common areas of liposuction are the abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.
