Liposuction is touted as a complete body sculpting solution. By strategically removing stubborn fat from the body, liposuction can substantially enhance the figure to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals. The most common treatment area is the stomach, but as we all know, that’s not the only area of the body where stubborn fat can be found. Below, we’ll explore the many different areas that can be treated with liposuction.
Liposuction Treatment Areas
Thanks to modern liposuction techniques, the treatment has become more versatile than ever. Today, liposuction is a suitable treatment for many areas of the body, both large and small. Possible treatment areas include:
- Hips and buttocks
- Chest and back
- Upper arms
- Chin and neck
- Thighs, calves and ankles
As you can see, liposuction can be used nearly anywhere. If you are struggling with stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise, you can likely benefit from the liposuction procedure.
How is Liposuction Performed for Each Treatment Area?
The liposuction treatment will vary depending on the area being treated. At Coastal Cosmetic Center, we specialize in numerous liposuction techniques. Standard liposuction is performed with either local or general anesthesia, and begins with making an incision in the treatment area. The exact size and location of the incision will vary depending on the treatment area and the extent of treatment performed. Through this incision, a small metal tube connected to a vacuum system removes fat cells from the body. This is the usual protocol for large treatment areas.
VASERlipo® is a less-invasive liposuction technique, which is assisted by ultrasound technology. The ultrasound technology helps damage and remove fat cells while also tightening the skin. This results in less downtime, fewer side effects and skin tightening benefits. However, this technique is typically reserved for smaller treatment areas when less fat needs to be removed.
Finally, liposculpture is a targeted liposuction technique that carefully removes and manipulates pockets of fat to accentuate the figure. Instead of simply removing fat, liposculpture considers the surrounding muscles and anatomy for best results. This technique is typically used in the abdomen, but it does have applications in other areas of the body.
