Liposuction can be likened to “body sculpting”. It’s used to eliminate excess body, hence, changing the contours of the targeted part. However, the procedure should not be used as a weight-loss replacement/substitute method for exercise or a healthy diet. In 2018, over 258,000 people in the US alone turned to this procedure for aesthetic reasons, meaning it’s a popular go-to fat loss solution in the US and, by extension, the world.

liposuctionWhere on Your Body can You Get Liposuction?

Since the primary goal of liposuction is eliminating problematic flab in the body, areas with a high concentration of fatty cells are the ones most targeted. The most ideal body areas for liposuction include, but are not limited to:

  • Abdomen

The abdomen can be divided into two sections, the lower and upper abdomen, for purposes of liposuction, but either section can be used to achieve a slimmer and sleeker shape.

  • Thighs

Liposuction on thighs is mainly done on the outer thigh (saddlebags) to enhance the overall shape of the client, and on the inner thighs to add a thigh gap when the client stands up.

  • Face

Liposuction can also be performed on the face if a client wants reduced cheeks and less neck fat. Neck liposuction can be combined with other procedures to give your face a slimmer and more defined contour.

  • Back

For most people, the back may be the unlikeliest of places for liposuction procedures. However, it’s quite effective for reduced back rolls, also known as bra rolls. At the end of the procedure, you will have a back that looks firmer and smoother.

  • Hips

Smooth and curvy hips are considered more feminine; the reason why most women go for liposuction in pursuit of more feminine silhouettes. Additionally, shapely hips are known to enhance the appeal of female buttocks.
