Dr. Pittluck - Local Anesthesia Liposuction

Liposuction is currently the second most popular cosmetic treatment nationwide, and it’s not hard to understand why. The procedure is highly effective and versatile, often used to treat multiple different areas of the body.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is often regarded as a new, modern-day advancement in cosmetic medicine. However, the practice of fat removal can be traced back to as early as the 1920s. Over time, the procedure evolved and new innovations allowed for a safer, more effective treatment.
