Liposuction continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world, with more than 258,000 people in the United States undergoing Liposuction in 2018. Patients have been choosing Liposuction to help get rid of stubborn body fat that won’t go away through diet and exercising, but keep in mind that Lipo is not a substitute for weight loss. Because Liposuction can be a minimally invasive procedure, it can be combined with other cosmetic procedures. Here are the areas where Liposuction is most requested.
1. Waist (Love Handles)
The waist area is probably the most popular area to get Liposuction because love handles can be tough to get rid of even with diet and exercise. This area is very responsive to Liposuction due to the skin’s elasticity. Patients will be able to achieve a more contoured and defined waistline by removing love handles.
2. Upper Arms
“Batwings” develop when fat and loose skin settle under the upper arms, making patients insecure in their arms. It is possible to have an arm jiggle even if you are not overweight. Arm Lipo will help eliminate arm jiggle resulting in smoother, tighter arms with little to no scarring.
When it comes to abdomen Liposuction, plastic surgeons divide the area into “upper” and “lower” abdomen. The lower abdomen is responsible for the unwanted “muffin top,” making it a popular site for Liposuction. The upper abdomen region consists of the area between your belly button and ribs. This area is also known to hold stubborn layers of fat. If you qualify for Liposuction in the abdomen area, you could be left with a tight and toned stomach.
The inner and outer thigh areas are another significant insecurity for patients making it popular spot for Liposuction. Like with other body parts, fat deposits can gather in the inner and outer thighs. Liposuction performed on the outer thighs can help address “saddle bags,” while Lipo can help contour the inner thighs resulting in the infamous “thigh gap.”
Liposuction around the hips and buttocks can help shape and smooth out the curves and help remove excess fat deposits that can cause dimples and bulges. This form of Lipo is primarily for women because it helps to achieve a feminine silhouette. Not only does hip Lipo help create a more well-defined shape, but it can also improve the looks of the buttocks.
