Most people equate liposuction with getting rid of the lumps that linger around the stomach, hips and thighs. However, the body contouring procedure can work wonders for many of the body’s nooks and crannies, vastly improving contours by removing stubborn pockets of fat that may be resistant to diet and exercise.
We don’t have much control over the shape of our face. While many genetic traits can be flattering, a double chin is generally not considered one of them. Even men and women who are fit and healthy cannot always lose the fat that gathers below their chin. Liposuction can get rid of a double chin for a sleeker, more defined jaw and neck.
If you feel that your calf doesn’t taper into a slender finish as it connects with your foot, you may be the bearer of “cankles.” This slang term is used to describe ankles that appear thick or fat. Many people are genetically predisposed to carry extra fat around their ankles, but that doesn’t mean they have to hide their lower legs behind long skirts and pants. Liposuction treatment can be custom-tailored to fix this common trouble spot for a more slender ankle.
Not even the knees are immune from localized fat deposits. Excess knee fat can compromise the contours of the leg, but fortunately liposuction can trim the fat for a thinner and more defined shape around the kneecap.
For many women, bulges of fat around the bra line can be frustrating and uncomfortable. Individuals who have rolls of fat in this region and good skin laxity may be ideal candidates for liposuction, which can smooth and improve the contours to leave you with a smoother back and fewer skin irritations.
