Where Can You Get Liposuction?
In the war against stubborn pockets of fat that won’t succumb to the traditional methods of diet and exercise, liposuction can be your knight in shining armor, ready to save the day.
This makes it no surprise that liposuction continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the country — with more than 211,067 procedures performed in the U.S. in 2020, Business Wire reports.
Liposuction is as versatile as it is popular, as many body areas respond well to this fat-reduction treatment.
Common Areas You Can Get Liposuction
Facial liposuction, or facial contouring, is a cosmetic surgery performed on areas like the chin, neck, and cheeks to improve the shape and contour of the face. It’s often performed with facial rejuvenation procedures, such as a face lift or neck lift, to achieve optimal results.
Home of the dreaded “muffin top,” the abdomen is one of the most common areas patients choose to use liposuction. Even for those who are within a normal weight range, it is not uncommon to hold excess fat in the upper and lower abdomen — liposuction can help to smooth and tighten these hard-to-reach areas.
Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight may choose to undergo a tummy tuck combined with liposuction. In this case, Dr. Franckle would first perform liposuction to reduce excess fat deposits and then remove excess skin with a tummy tuck procedure.
Liposuction is commonly used to treat excess fat on the inner and outer thighs, often referred to as saddlebags. Patients who choose to have liposuction done on their thighs can expect to lose around one inch from these areas, but some end up losing more.
