Liposuction is a safe cosmetic procedure for body contouring that removes excess fat and reshapes the body parts. It is a well-known and helpful body contouring procedure that uses quick, safe, and minimally invasive techniques to remove unwanted fat deposits. The removal of excess fat reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and other fat-associated health problems associated with fat while enhancing the patient’s self-esteem. This review aims to investigate and summarize the historical, contemporary, and future vision of liposuction techniques, their application, benefits, and risks in weight loss and various health conditions. Also, this paper provides a concise overview of liposuction vs. bariatric surgery in weight loss.
