What Areas Can Be Treated With Liposuction?
ABDOMENThe abdomen is one of the most common areas with unwanted fat storage. If you have problems with abdominal fat, you may appear bloated and your clothing may no longer fit comfortably. Fat around the stomach can obscure toned abdominal definition. Liposuction can be used to restore a flatter tummy.
HIPSFat along the hips can cause “love handles” or an unsightly muffin top. Women often use liposuction to create more attractive curves around the hips. Fat removal along this area can restore a slimmer appearance, but it can also enhance a more shapely appearance in some women.
THIGHSExcess fat along the thighs can cause ill-fitting pants and painful chafing in some patients. By slimming the legs with liposuction, you can decrease the amount of painful irritation you may be experiencing. Additionally, liposuction can restore a leaner, more toned thigh that looks better in shorts and dresses.
ARMSA flabby arm appearance, sometimes called “bat wings,” can make many women and men feel self-conscious in specific types of clothing tops. Using liposuction to eliminate fat along the arms provides a stronger, leaner arm appearance. For many patients, this look cannot be achieved without surgical assistance.
NECKFat accumulation along the neck, especially when it is localized under the chin, can contribute to the appearance of a double chin. Submental fat can cause your jawline to lack definition, and you may appear heavier than you are. Liposuction can eliminate your double chin, creating a slimmer appearance.
ALTERNATE AREASLiposuction can be performed on many other areas if you desire to further enhance the contour of your body. Other areas that may benefit from liposuction include:
How Is Liposuction Performed?
Liposuction is performed under local or general anesthesia. Small incisions are made in the target areas. A thin hollow tube (cannula) is inserted through the incisions. The doctor will make a back and forth motion with the tube to loosen some of the excess fat. Once the fat is loosened, it’s suctioned out with a syringe or a surgical vacuum.
