We all know that when it comes to dealing with stubborn, exercise-resistant fat, liposuction is the go-to solution – but did you know it's also the number-one cosmetic surgery overall? That fact coming directly from a report by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), liposuction beats out tummy tucks, eyelid lifts and even breast augmentation surgery! So, just how many patients choose lipo each year? According to the ASAPS, there were over 325,000 liposuction procedures performed in 2011 – a number that shows significant growth. Compared to the 2010 numbers, liposuction grew in popularity by over 12% in one year alone!
