Being the most sought-after cosmetic surgery globally, liposuction has proven to be extremely flexible in addressing various parts of the body. It is a safe and effective solution to stubborn fat pads that are unresponsive to a healthy lifestyle. The procedure can shape body areas like the abdomen, waist, hips, upper arms, and thighs.
Before considering liposuction as a body sculpting remedy, individuals should be in relatively good health to aid in its recovery and benefits. For example, patients with diabetes are not always the best candidates for the procedure.
Popular Target Areas
Common areas Dr. Yegiyants targets with liposuction include:
The waist is an area where stubborn fat deposits accumulate. Men and women develop love handles that can be challenging to eliminate. Fortunately, the waist is an easy area to perform liposuction because the skin in this area is extremely pliable. People who have liposuction at their waist often lose inches.
2. The Hips
This area has some of the most elastic skin on the body, making it a great target for liposuction. Treatment here is typically used to improve the contour of the hip area and help women attain an hourglass figure.
Attaining sculpted inner and outer thighs is paramount for women who wish to wear the latest fashions that reveal long, slender legs. Plus, the small gap between the inner thighs is often an indication a woman is in excellent physical condition. Liposuction is often combined with a thigh lift.
4. The Upper Arms
Fat deposits on your upper arms will increase with age. This area typically doesn’t respond well to diet and exercise. Therefore, liposuction can eliminate fat bulges in this area and create sleeker arms that are perfect for tank tops and spaghetti straps.
Abdominal liposuction is a common aesthetic surgery procedure. It consists of the permanent removal of fat stored in the abdomen, waist, and love handles. Liposuction is often combined with a tummy tuck to remove excess fat for a leaner, tighter stomach.
The neck is another area where fat accumulates and can be treated with liposuction. The procedure can remove excess fat from the neck area, creating a more defined jawline and neckline. It is an excellent option for individuals who have a double chin or a “turkey neck” and want to improve their appearance. Neck liposuction can also be combined with other facial procedures such as a facelift or neck lift for optimal results.
