Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure that can help reduce excess fat from certain body areas. But did you know liposuction can treat more than belly fat? In fact, it can enhance other areas of your body to give you a more defined look. Some unexpected areas where liposuction can be effective include the following:
Double Chin: Chin liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that helps to trim the fat around the neck and jawline. It works by using a thin, small tube called a cannula. Results from this procedure are visible straight away and last permanently. Chin liposuction can also reduce jowls for those who’ve had problems with them in the past.
Chest: For men, carrying too much fat on their chest area can cause self-image issues. This is particularly disheartening for them if no results come even after all the diets and workouts. While it shouldn’t replace good healthy eating habits and exercise, liposuction can be a great complement to help them achieve their desired body shape.
Muffin Top: Are you having trouble getting rid of the stubborn layer of fat that overhangs the edge of your waistline when wearing tight or form-fitting clothes? A muffin top liposuction could be the answer you’ve been looking for. It’s a method used to eliminate excess fat in different body parts, including the abdomen. Through this technique, you can shape and define your figure.
Saddlebags: During puberty, women can have fatty deposits in the saddlebags area around the hip bones. Increased estrogen levels typically cause these formations and, in most cases, are a normal characteristic in many women. Many cultures celebrate the beauty of larger hips as a sign of fertility. But if your saddlebags bother you, liposuction may be an option to get rid of the excess fat in your outer thighs.
Cankles. The term ‘cankles’ is a popular term for ankles that appear swollen, thick, or fatty. This slang word is derived from ‘calf’ and ‘ankles’ to refer to areas where the aesthetic condition occurs. More recently, cosmetic procedures have extended to include ankles as well. When it comes to cankle treatments, some are more reliable than others. Liposuction appears to be the most effective method of reducing any extra fatty tissues in the ankle area. Through a quick and efficient cankle liposuction procedure, your plastic surgeon can target any excess skin to achieve a sleek shape for your ankles.
What Liposuction Can and Cannot Treat
Apart from the five body parts mentioned above, liposuction can also be performed on the cheeks, arms, buttocks, and knees to eliminate unwanted fat. You may opt for a single liposuction procedure or combine it with other cosmetic surgeries like facelifts, tummy tucks, and breast reductions. Remember that liposuction does not treat obesity or should replace a balanced, healthy diet and regular physical activity. Additionally, this procedure is ineffective for cellulite or loose, saggy skin.
