Liposuction: Not Just for Love Handles

Man looking at cameraLiposuction is most commonly associated with treating pudgy pockets of fat around the abdominal area, but love handles aren’t the only treatment area for the fat reducing procedure. Because we can’t control where our bodies store fat, different people have different problem areas that might have a little extra bulge than they’d like. The good news is that liposuction can be used virtually anywhere on the body, including these few lesser known liposuction hot spots.

Upper Arms

Some men and women store a disproportionate amount of weight in the upper arms. This can be a particularly difficult area to target with exercise, and can give the appearance of being top-heavy. Liposuction can help slim down the upper arms for a more sculpted look.

Double Chin

The double chin is the classic symptom of being overweight, but many don’t realize that people with perfectly healthy BMIs can still have a double chin. By applying liposuction just under the neck, you can zap away some of that extra chin fat.

Inner and Outer Thighs

Men and women alike might wish for firm, muscular upper legs, but can’t always seem to achieve their ideal look with jogging or cycling. With liposuction, your surgeon can slim down the inner or outer thighs to give your figure a more streamlined appearance.

Ab Sculpting

Ab sculpting can benefit both men and women, and is one of the most common reasons men get liposuction. Oftentimes, you might have a six-pack underneath that layer of fat, but can’t quite show it off without a little surgical assistance. With ab sculpting via lipo, you can bring out those abdominal muscles for a sexy beach look around the clock.
