3 Areas for Liposuction

Have you tried for months or even years to rid yourself of excess fat through exercise and dieting, only to be disappointed time and time again? It may be that liposuction is the best answer. Given the many technological advances in plastic surgery, liposuction has become more efficient and safer than ever. So what are some of the more common target areas in which this form of cosmetic surgery has proven effective? Let’s work our way up…

Target Area #1: The Thighs

If you are having trouble toning and sculpting your thighs with a weight training and cardio regime, then you’re not alone. Over three quarters of the liposuction procedures performed by plastic surgeons focus on the thigh area. However, it’s important to keep in mind that thigh liposuction will not remedy cellulite in these or other areas.

Target Area #2: The Waist or Abdomen

The waist is another popular target area focused on by plastic surgery patients—prime candidates include those who wish to remove an isolated bulge and thus change the contour of their body. Liposuction in the waist is often performed in conjunction with other types of plastic surgery, including tummy tucks (a procedure which removes excess skin and fat).

Target Area #3: The Neck and Chin

Excess fat in the neck/chin region can be a result of age, genetics, or weight gain. Liposuction in this area can help to correct this problem. Hanging jowls, double chins, rolls of fat in the neck line—all of these can be removed via liposculpture, a procedure which yields a contoured, younger-looking neck and face. Neck and chin liposuction procedures are often paired with other types of facial plastic surgery, such as face lifts.
