If you consistently eat right and work out but can’t get rid of stubborn fat pockets, you’re not alone. Sometimes, even healthy, fit men and women need a little extra help, and that’s where liposuction comes in. It is one of the most popular body contouring procedures I perform for good reason: It helps you achieve the sleek, toned silhouette you’ve been yearning for despite how much hard work you’ve put in at the gym.

If you’re curious about liposuction on the stomach, hips, buttocks, chin, and beyond, keep reading. We’re delving into the head-to-toe benefits of liposuction surgery to reveal why it is our most requested procedure. By the end of this blog post, you’ll have a better understanding of whether you’re a good candidate for liposuction and what it can do for your physique.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

If you have stubborn fat that’s resistant to diet and exercise, it may comfort you to learn that it’s probably not your fault. Your body’s fat distribution typically stems from inherited traits, and the layer of fat stored beneath the skin is largely predetermined by your genetics. In other words, your “genes” heavily factor into how well you fit into your “jeans.” This may make you more predisposed to gaining weight in specific problem areas, such as the belly or buttocks. Fortunately, liposuction can effectively target and remove areas of underlying fat while enhancing your body contours.

Ideal candidates for liposuction possess these traits:

  • In good overall health (no underlying health issues)
  • Non-smoker
  • Within 10 to 15 pounds of your ideal weight before surgery
  • Adequate skin elasticity (loose skin may sag more after liposuction)

What Areas Does Liposuction Treat?

I use an advanced approach to body contouring called power-assisted liposuction, which involves smaller, more flexible cannulas (thin tubes). My patients and I prefer this technique because it minimizes incision size and scarring, reduces swelling and bruising, and makes recovery easier.

The beauty of liposuction is that it targets pockets of unwanted fat virtually anywhere on the body, giving you a fit and firm look from head to toe. This includes:

Chin Liposuction

A double chin can make you look chubby even if you’re naturally thin. During chin liposuction, I remove excess fat under the chin and jawline, giving you a sculpted, chiseled jaw and neck. I also offer a non-surgical alternative for treating double-chin fat called KYBELLA®

Neck Liposuction

I help patients take years off their appearance by smoothing and firming skin around the neck. Neck liposuction also benefits patients who want a sharper, more defined jawline.

Arm Liposuction

If you want to eliminate loose, hanging skin on the underside of the upper arms, liposuction is highly effective and less invasive than an arm lift (brachioplasty). This technique sculpts and contours the arms for sleeker, more balanced body proportions.

Abdominal Liposuction

Liposuction on the abs and flanks is one of our most requested procedures. While liposuction sculpts and refines the abdomen, patients with loose tummy skin and excess belly fat often benefit from combining liposuction with tummy tuck surgery for transformative results.

Thigh Liposuction

Excess weight on the inner or outer thighs (saddlebags) can be frustrating and uncomfortable. Liposuction on the thighs sculpts and tones the lower body and may be particularly beneficial for patients who tend to carry weight in their thighs.

I also perform liposuction on areas of the body such as the hips, backs, calves, ankles, and buttocks. During your personalized consultation, we’ll assess your skin, discuss your concerns, and develop a customized treatment plan to address and reshape your primary “trouble spots.”

Is Male Liposuction Beneficial?

Male plastic surgery is on the rise, and that includes liposuction. Women are more prone to excess fat in the hips and thighs, while men usually struggle with stubborn belly fat and love handles. I’m finding that liposuction has become the go-to procedure for active men who want to achieve a more toned and masculine-looking physique. It’s essential to remember that combining liposuction with a healthy diet and consistent workouts help maximize and preserve your virile look.

Combining Liposuction for Customized Body Contouring Results

While I never take a one-size-fits-all approach to your cosmetic procedure, liposuction is an exceptionally customizable and versatile treatment. To tailor your results to align with your aesthetic vision, we may combine liposuction with the following popular body contouring procedures to help you achieve your “dream look:”

Tummy tuck surgery: As noted earlier, combining liposuction with a tummy tuck produces transformative results, especially after your body has undergone a significant change like pregnancy or massive weight loss.

Mommy makeover surgery: Liposuction performed during a Mommy Makeover helps transform your figure and regain your pre-baby body. This combination surgery also typically includes treatments like tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift surgery.

Fat transfer surgery: Fat transfer, or fat grafting, uses liposuction to remove unwanted fat from one area of the body—often the abdomen, thighs, or hips—and relocate it to another location where you desire more volume. One of the most popular areas to use fat transfer is in the buttocks, a procedure known as a Brazilian butt lift (BBL). You can see how beautifully the procedure contours the body while adding a full roundness to the buttocks in our showcase of before-and-after photos.
