Liposuction has been one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures since we can’t remember when! The procedure has helped countless men and women resolve the self-esteem issues that stem from excess amounts of fat in a localized area. Liposuction is often considered by individuals who want to slim down their midsection. However, there are several more parts of the body on which liposuction makes perfect sense. We will discuss them briefly here.
- Neck lift surgery has quickly become one of the most sought-after procedures among both men and women. This is relatively common knowledge. However, what many people don’t realize is that the neck lift is often complemented by liposuction. The strategic removal of fatty tissue in the submental area can eliminate a double chin. Liposuction can also be performed lower on the neck, facilitating the removal of neck rings.
- There are several reasons why the ankles may look enlarged. Fortunately, many of them are only temporary conditions, such as pregnancy or minor water retention. That being said, genetics may also make a person predisposed to the accumulation of fat around the ankles. In such instances where fat is unlikely to go away with diet and exercise, liposuction can sculpt the ankles into a slimmer, more attractive shape.
- We often discuss liposuction for the thighs, but the area that often presents the most frustration is the lowest point, just above the knees. It doesn’t take much fat accumulation to change the appearance of the knees to the degree that causes self-consciousness. The removal of these small, localized cells is conservative and requires very little downtime.
In addition to sculpting numerous areas of the body, liposuction is also the primary treatment for gynecomastia or excessive breast tissue in men. Depending on glandular involvement, excision may also be needed to achieve the desired effect.
