Parts of the Body That Often Get a Liposuction

Liposuction such as Smart Lipo can dramatically reduce stubborn fat, improve the shape of your body, remove several inches from your waistline, tone the abdomen, contour the buttocks and a lot more.

Liposuction can be done on various parts of the body in one session. It can also be performed in conjunction with other surgical procedures.

1. Waist

Love handles are not always easy to get rid of even if you have been watching what you eat and exercising. Fortunately, liposuction works well for the belly area because the skin is generally more elastic.

2. Flanks

The flank area, which is in the lower back also has good skin elasticity. Liposuction is often performed in the flank together with the waist so as to contour the body and give you an hourglass figure.

3. Hips

As women get older, the hips tend to become bigger/wider and this is why many would opt to get liposuction in this area to maintain a feminine shape.

4. Upper Arms

Excess fat and skin tissue tend to build up in the upper arm when we get older. Liposuction can fix this issue and give you a more toned arm without permanent scarring.

5. Lower Abdomen

Muffin top is a common issue among women (and men) which is why many would opt for liposuction of the abdomen to get a toned stomach. However, if there’s too much fat in this area, your doctor may recommend a tummy tuck instead.

6. Upper Abdomen

The upper abdomen is the area between the ribs and belly button. If you get a lower abdomen liposuction, then you will most likely be getting an upper abdomen lipo as well to create a smooth transition.

7. Buttocks

Many patients would ask about getting a lipo in the buttocks but this is not recommended as it will make the butt look flat after the procedure.

8. Inner Thighs

For patients who want a gap in between their two thighs, then a lipo procedure can help with this. Lipo can remove excess fat in the inner thighs and contour it.

9. Outer Thighs

The outer thigh plays a significant role in a person’s silhouette so if there’s excess fat here it can negatively affect the shape of the body.

A liposuction procedure can be done in conjunction with other cosmetic surgeries like tummy tuck, facelift, butt lift and so on. If what you’re interested in shaping your entire body, then expect that your surgeon will recommend multiple procedures to make this happen.

Who Should Get a Liposuction?

A good candidate for this procedure is someone who meets the following requirements:

  • Have firm, elastic skin.
  • Not overweight (within 30% of their ideal body weight)
  • Be in good health overall.
  • Have fat pockets that they can’t get rid of even with diet and exercise.

If you are considering getting a liposuction, get a consultation with at least a few cosmetic surgeons so you can get a better idea of what specific procedures you need, who should perform the procedure, and what to expect before and after getting a lipo.
