Where can Liposuction be Used?

Fat can accumulate virtually anywhere on the body. While a lot of fat can be removed with the right diet and regular exercise, some pockets of stubborn fat might remain, hiding your toned contour. Luckily, liposuction can be used almost anywhere on the body to help both men and women achieve the figure they desire, but here are some of the most common uses:

The abdominal area

Your abdominal area can be one of the most difficult placed to tone, and is one of the most desired areas to be sculpted! Women often aim for an hourglass figure, while men want to accentuate their abs for a more muscular appearance. Dr. Perry offers liposuction not only to remove stubborn fat from the abdominal area, but for precise sculpting to enhance your look.

The bra area

Your breasts can go through many unwanted changes with age, after pregnancy, or with weight loss, resulting in sagging and volume loss. Along with this, you might experience an accumulation of stubborn fat that creates unwanted budges when wearing a bra. Liposuction techniques can be used to treat these concerns and can even be added to another procedure like the breast lift.

Upper arms and thighs

The upper arms and thighs are another common area for stubborn fat to be located. However, in these areas, it can be difficult to determine if stubborn fat is truly the culprit, or if it’s actually loose skin and tissue. Dr. Perry will be able to examine your arms or thighs to ensure that liposuction is the best technique, or he might recommend the arm or thigh lift as well.

Under the chin

Submental fullness, or stubborn fat under the chin, is another common complaint. This area can be especially difficult to tone with exercise alone. With liposuction, you can eliminate the appearance of a double chin and redefine the neck and jawline.
