Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves removing fat cells that arent responding to diet and exercise. Some areas of the body are resistant to changes in your diet, and wont budge no matter how much exercise you do. If you want your entire body to reflect the work youve done to get fit and healthy, liposuction can help you achieve that by permanently removing the fat cells. Liposuction can be performed on almost any area of the body. Here are a few of the most popular:
The thigh area is especially resistant to diet and exercise on women who have had children. Liposuction can be used to remove excess fat on the outer thighs, making it easier to fit into pants and skirts comfortably and improving the silhouette of the lower body. Liposuction on the inner thigh can also improve the fit of your clothing, preventing chafing and further improving the overall look of the lower body.
Fat in the back can make fitting into bras uncomfortable, and can cause unattractive rolls in swimsuits and low-backed shirts and dresses. The skin of the back is very elastic, making it an ideal area of the body for liposuction.
Love handles are resistant to diet and exercise in both men and women, though only women get criticized for having a muffin top of fat that spills over the waistband of their clothes. Removal of fat in the love handle area can reduce your waist size by several inches, get rid of the muffin top issue, make your clothes fit better, and give you an overall slimmer look.
The abdominal area (or the front of the belly) requires extra care from the surgeon because improper removal of the fat can cause the skin to sag. Abdominal skin is not as elastic as many other areas of the body. using a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is up to date on the latest safety techniques will help ensure your results are satisfactory.
As women and men age, the upper arms becomes flabbier and looser. Removing fat as it accumulates will help keep the skin of the upper arms tight. As you exercise and keep the muscles tones, the arms will maintain their thin, smooth appearance.
As we age we can develop fat deposits on the neck that will eventually cause drooping, sagging, and turkey neck. As long as the patient still has good skin elasticity, these fat deposits can be removed, giving men a stronger jawline and women a more elegant, slim neckline. Removal of this fat can also reduce the appearance of jowls.
