Liposuction Can Treat a Variety of Areas

When you think of liposuction, like many people you probably think of removing fat from the abdomen and maybe the hips and thighs. But did you know that liposuction can be used to remove stubborn body fat from more than just these areas? It’s true! Check out these lesser-known areas that liposuction can help improve.


People who accumulate excess fat around the neck and under the chin know how difficult these fat deposits can be to lose. After all, there are no exercises you can do to “tone up” that area, and even maintaining a healthy diet and exercising sometimes may not be enough. That’s because in some cases those fat deposits are due more to loss of collagen than to actual body fat. Thankfully, liposuction can help remove some of that excess fat and get you the smooth, streamlined neck and chin you’re looking for.


Yes, you can get liposuction in your underarms! Have you ever noticed a bulge at your armpits when your arms are by your side? Well, that bulge can be really hard to get rid of. In fact, even celebrities like supermodel Chrissy Teigen have discussed problems with fat deposits in that area, and Teigen has even undergone liposuction to remove it!


You can call that fat that hangs from your underarms any number of cutesy names (batwings, bingo-wings), but if you don’t find underarm fat adorable, you don’t have to live with it. You can do as many curls and push-ups as you can stand and still never lose underarm fat, or you can get liposuction and take care of it all at once.


Believe it or not, you can get liposuction on your breasts. Though it is not the same thing as a typical breast reduction, breast liposuction can remove about 50 percent of the fat from the breasts and reduce the breast by up to three cup sizes. This procedure is also called “scarless breast reduction” because unlike traditional breast reduction only a small incision is needed to remove the fat with a liposuction cannula. The procedure is best for women who have more fatty tissue on their breasts than muscle. Breast liposuction is also less expensive than traditional breast reduction surgery, and has about one-fifth the healing time of the traditional surgery.
