The Most Common Areas in the Body for Liposuction
If you are dealing with stubborn deposits of fat in certain areas of your body that do not seem to respond to exercise or diet, you may be ready to consider liposuction. Pittsburghpatients who consider this procedure are in good company with Premier Plastic Surgery.
Keep in mind that not all areas of the body respond well to this procedure. If you are considering liposuction, consider these areas, which are the most common areas treated:
The abdomen is, by far, the most common area of the body treated through liposuction. The procedure works quite well on the abdominal area, provided the fat is superficial and not located deep within the abdominal cavity. Your surgeon will help you determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction of your abdomen.
The thighs, particularly the anterior region of the thighs, are also a common area to have liposuction. The goal for liposuction here is not necessarily to reduce volume, but rather to smooth out the look. Patients need to be careful, because too much liposuction in this area can cause skin irregularities.
The back and flank area are also commonly treated areas. For men, the goal is usually to remove the “love handles” from the flanks. For women, the goal is usually to smooth out the fat rolls created when wearing a bra. Both male and female patients see good results through liposuction of these areas.
The calves do not respond particularly well to liposuction, but the ankles do. Patients claiming to have “cankles,” can achieve a slimmer look through liposuction.
If you have stubborn fat in one of these areas, schedule a consultation with your surgeon to talk about liposuction. Pittsburghplastic surgeon, Dr. Brian Heil is ready to consult your options to help you reach great results through this common and effective cosmetic procedure.
