It is one of the Cosmetic Surgery practices in Oklahoma employed as a test market for numerous makers of liposuction equipment. OKC Lipo is an exclusive Midwest training center (OK, NM, CO, AR, NE, KS) for such manufacturers.

Liposuction is one of the most well-liked and safest procedures for body contouring in the world. Its popularity can be attributed to the fact that any surplus body fat (trouble areas) that does not get reduced despite doing exercise and watching food intake, can be easily, quickly, and permanently removed with this procedure. It also tightens loose skin, and helps to improve male and female body contours. Areas that can be worked on include the face, breasts/chest, hips, knees, abdomen, neck, ankles, upper arms, and thighs. Fat can be removed from one or multiple areas simultaneously.
Little incisions are made in natural skin creases or hair bearing regions. Following this, a special tumescent solution is introduced within the trouble areas to be a local anesthetic and control blood loss. A cannula that is connected to a suction machine by way of tubing is then used to get rid of the excess fat (now in melted form) from the particular fatty area(s). How long the procedure would take would depend on how much fat is involved and how difficult the process is for a particular patient. Results from the procedure are also variable. A compression garment limits surgical trauma, and helps with retraction of any flabby skin.
