Popular Areas of the Body for Liposuction
Every year, we all resolve to exercise more diligently and eat healthier in hopes of achieving ‘our perfect body’. Some can achieve great success with weight loss when we stick to our resolutions. Others find that no matter how hard they exercise, or how healthy they eat, they just can’t get rid of certain pockets of fat. In this circumstance, liposuction can help to remove problematic fat and create the defined silhouette you are desiring.
Removing Fat With Liposuction
Liposuction is a popular procedure commonly performed to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals. The procedure involves a plastic surgeon using small suction tubes to loosen and remove fat cells from the body. Here are some of the ideal areas for liposuction:
Waist and Abdomen
It can be difficult to shape and define the waist and abdomen through diet and exercise alone. Many patients choose liposuction to help turn love handles and muffin tops into tight, toned midsections. For best results, candidates for liposuction in this area should maintain a reasonably healthy weight and have good skin elasticity. Patients with loose skin may be better candidates for tummy tucks or mommy makeovers.
Men and women alike can benefit from liposuction to the upper arms, but this procedure is particularly popular among aging women, who often develop excess fat in the area. That arm jiggle stems from a lack of muscle tone, which may be improved through liposuction. For many patients, the treatment can result in a smoother, firmer appearance.
Hips and Thighs
Stubborn fat pockets in the lower body present problems for many women seeking to highlight their feminine, hourglass shape. Fortunately, liposuction may be able to help enhance the natural shape of the hips, thighs, and buttocks by removing undesirable fat cells in these areas. By contouring the inner and outer thighs, liposuction may reduce the appearance of saddlebags, create a thigh gap, and highlight definition in the buttocks.
