Lymphedema patients may consider liposuction as a treatment for reducing fat tissue. Liposuction is a technique which removes fat through a small metal cannula. Liposuction has been used for cosmetic purposes for almost 30 years and is known as the safest cosmetic plastic surgery procedure.

In 2014 363,912 liposuction procedures were performed in America according to  American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) – making liposuction the highest elected cosmetic plastic surgery.
