5 Areas Where You Didn’t Know You Can Get Liposuction

Liposuction is great for your stomach, love handles and thighs, but not much else, right? Not quite. While those liposuction treatment areas are among the most well-known, there are plenty of other spots that this popular body contouring procedure can treat as well, including these five lesser-known areas that can benefit from liposuction.

1. Face

Removing fat from the face is a delicate procedure, but one that an experienced plastic surgeon can handle.

A skilled plastic surgeon is able to effectively remove stubborn fat from areas of your face that don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise. Facial liposuction is ideal for those who have fat pockets in the cheeks that make them unhappy with their appearance, or whose rounded face shape makes them look too young or feminine. If you are looking to get rid of a “baby face” look, this procedure might be right for you.

2. Chin and Neck

They say that your chin and neck are the first places you gain weight and the last places you lose it. Face and neck liposuction helps you eliminate stubborn fat deposits that cause sagging, puffiness and a poorly defined jawline. As with facial liposuction, this is a delicate procedure and requires significant training and experience on the part of your plastic surgeon.

3. Upper Arms

This liposuction treatment area is not so well-known but is certainly gaining in popularity. Once an overlooked area, the upper arms — particularly the “bat wing” area  — is now a common treatment spot for liposuction in both men and women.

For those who experience this effect strictly due to excess fat deposits, upper arm liposuction can be a great solution. If your “bat wings” are a combination of unwanted fat and sagging skin, liposuction can be combined with an arm lift.

4. Back

Another spot that most don’t think of for liposuction treatment is the back. Both men and women can carry excess fat on their back, though this is more common in women than men and is often highlighted by bra straps. Back liposuction can remove excess fat deposits to help give you that clean, smooth backline, rather than lumps and rolls.

5. Lower Legs

While trimming up the thighs with liposuction is common, many are unaware that the lower legs can also be treated. In some cases, large calves are caused by excess fat, rather than muscle. Liposuction can help by removing stubborn fatty deposits to reshape the lower leg. This can help to bring the upper and lower legs into balance, and make it easier to wear certain styles of clothing, such as skinny jeans and boots.

Getting Feedback on Your Liposuction Plans

Ultimately, if there is an area of stubborn fat on your body, chances are that liposuction can address it. If not, talk with your plastic surgeon about liposuction alternatives, such as non-surgical body contouring, that might be a better fit for your needs.

The best way to find out if you could be a good candidate for liposuction is to sit down with an experienced plastic surgeon to discuss the look you would like to achieve. With proper guidance, you should be able to design a treatment plan that meets your needs.
