Excess fat can cause you to feel flabby, unhealthy, and unattractive. Men and women often struggle to eliminate areas of fat through diet and exercise but are unsuccessful in creating the body contour they want. You may feel that your body lacks definition or a lean appearance because of your unwanted fat. Liposuction is a permanent fat removal process that sculpts and shapes the body for a firmer, more toned you!

Areas Treated With Liposuction


The 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.


Fat 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.


Excess 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.


A 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.


Fat 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.


Liposuction 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:
  • Back
  • Chest
  • Knees
  • Ankles
