Where On Your Body Can You Have Liposuction?

Cosmetic Surgery Enquiry

Liposuction can be performed on several parts of your body where you have excess fat. The most common treatment areas are the abdomen, and breasts but liposuction can also be performed on the arms, hops, thighs, back, buttocks, face, chin, and neck. Different areas cost different amounts, as they can be more or less complicated than others are.

Liposuction of the Abdomen

The abdomen is the area that is most commonly treated by liposuction, as it is often difficult for people to lose fat from this area. Liposuction is used to remove the fat cells giving you a life- long toned abdomen. Liposuction of the abdomen is normally carried out under a local anaesthetic meaning that recovery time is relatively short.

Liposuction of the Breasts

Liposuction of the breasts is also a common procedure in both men and women. Liposuction offers breast reduction without invasive surgery, which can leave scarring and pain. Liposuction of the breasts is not always suitable and can only reduce them by a limited amount. Liposuction of the breasts is used by both men and women to reduce the size of their breasts.

Liposuction of the Chin and Face

Liposuction of the chin is becoming more common as people are trying to tackle their double chin. Liposuction is a successful way of removing the fat giving more definition to your chin and making you look slimmer and more youthful. This is normally a quick procedure, which is performed under a local anaesthetic.

Some people also opt for liposuction of the face, which is a modern phenomenon. Due to the developments in liposuction, it has become possible to perform it on areas that are more sensitive. It is normally performed under a local anaesthetic and can be used to remove fat from the cheeks and jowls. It is not possible to remove fat from around the eyes using liposuction due to the extreme sensitivity of this area.

Liposuction of the Buttocks

Liposuction can be used on the buttocks to make them appear more pert and symmetrical. However, fat remodelling of the buttocks is normally a more successful way of producing a nice shaped buttocks as liposuction can cause irregularities.

Liposuction of the Arms

People often use liposuction to remove the fat at the top of your arms. This is a complicated procedure, which requires precise work from your surgeon. The recovery from arm liposuction can take several months and you may be left with small scars.

Liposuction of the Hips

Liposuction of the hips is a common procedure due to the difficulty of shedding excess fat from this area. The severity of the treatment depends greatly on the amount of fat that you want to be removed. The procedure can be quick and simple only requiring a local anaesthetic, if you only want to remove a small amount of fat, or more complicated if you want large amounts of fat removing. More complicated liposuction may require repeat treatments under a general anaesthetic.

Liposuction of the Thighs and Legs

Liposuction of the thighs is a complicated procedure that often requires several treatments to get the desired results. Liposuction is often used, as it is much less invasive than other surgery on the thighs and can produce effective results. The amount of fat that can be removed from your thighs through liposuction is limited so you may require other forms of surgery in combination with liposuction. Liposuction can also be used to remove fat from the lower legs although this is less common.

Liposuction of the Back

Liposuction of the back ranges from a small procedure, which is performed under a local anaesthetic removing only a small amount of fat, to a large procedure, which requires a general anaesthetic, the removal of large amounts of fat and repeat treatments. Liposuction on the back is a complicated procedure and can lead to scarring, irregularities, and skin discolouration.
