Liposuction is a common cosmetic surgery procedure where excess fat is removed from under the skin through the use of suction.
Liposuction is great for body contouring because it can be used to target specific fat deposits, which are hard to remove with exercise alone.
If you’ve been working hard to get in shape but still need a little extra help, liposuction could be a great option for you. Read on to find out more about the most common liposuction areas for women and men.
Common Liposuction Areas For Women
Women make up the majority of individuals who receive liposuction treatment. The three most common areas where women receive liposuction include the abdomen, breasts, and outer hips.
Abdominal liposuction is the most common type for both men and women, and the reason it’s so popular is because stomach fat can be very difficult to lose even when people try diet and exercise.
Genetics and environmental factors, such as having a child, affect the amount of stomach fat a person may have, and since these are uncontrollable factors, abdominal liposuction is a great choice for making your stomach go from fat to flat.
Using liposuction alone on the breasts can result in a breast reduction, and the reduction in the weight of the breasts can alleviate back pain and produce a slight, natural breast lift.
Outer Hips Liposuction
Liposuction on the outer hips is also very popular as this area comprises the lower waist, and the treatment results in a more natural, contoured body shape, which is visible from the front and the back.
Common Liposuction Areas For Men
Men make up roughly 20 to 25 percent of liposuction patients, so there’s no shame in considering having liposuction treatment done if you’re male.
The three most common areas men treat with liposuction are the chin and neck, the abdomen, and flanks.
Chin and Neck Liposuction
Chin liposuction and neck liposuction are typically performed together to target double-chins, jowls, and unsightly necklines.
Male Abdominal Liposuction
Abdominal liposuction for men works the same way as it does for women, but it can offer a wider range of results. Many men choose abdominal liposuction to achieve a more defined, chiseled look for their stomach.
Flanks are more commonly referred to as “love handles”. Many men target this area in combination with abdominal liposuction. The result produces a more slender, natural body shape around the waist area.
