Most Popular Body Locations for Liposuction
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic body sculpting procedures in the country, with over 200,000 procedures performed each year. Liposuction has become popular with many people because of its ability to remove stubborn fat and resculpt and reshape the body, especially after significant weight loss.
Liposuction is also popular because it can be used to remove fat from a variety of body areas. Dr. Johnson performs SmartLipo, a form of liposuction that allows patients to stay awake, recover quickly and see better results because of its extra skin-tightening benefits.
Liposuction is very versatile, which makes it easy to use on many different areas of the body, but the most common areas of treatment include:
Abdomen. The abdomen is an area of the body that many patients want liposuction treatment on to recapture curves — not just the front of the abdomen, but around the sides of the midsection, too. This area is commonly known as the love handles or muffin top region, and the fat located in this area is tough to remove through diet and exercise.
Thighs. Liposuction is most commonly performed on the inner or outer thigh area to give the thighs a more proportioned shape and help keep the thighs from touching. Like fat in the midsection, thigh fat is also very stubborn and difficult to remove, no matter how many leg lifts you do.
Upper Arms and Armpits. The armpit area, known as the "baby fat" or "armpit bulge," is becoming a very popular area for liposuction. Excess fat often settles in the upper arms and stays there despite eating healthy and lifting weights. This excess fat can make many women feel self-conscious when wearing certain kinds of clothing and look to liposuction to get more shapely upper arms.
The Chest (Men). Genetic tendencies, weight gain, hormonal imbalances and aging can cause the development of enlarged breast tissue in men. This enlarged breast tissue is extremely fibrous and does not respond to diet or exercise. Many men opt for liposuction to remove their enlarged breast tissue quickly and discreetly.
