Liposuction is a procedure that surgically removes stubborn fat deposits in localized areas, resulting in a contoured and slimmer body. In liposuction, a small puncture is made in the skin, after which fat is loosened by various methods, and then surgically removed from targeted areas using a cannula. After the procedure, the treated area becomes more sculpted in appearance. If you are going for liposuction and would like to put the harvested fats to good use, you may also consider free fat grafting.
Areas Suitable For Liposuction
1. Abdominal Liposuction
Abdominal obesity tends to occur when an excessive amount of fat tissue in the body is accumulated in the upper or lower abdomen. Abdominal fat is a very common problem for both women and men, and this can be corrected through liposuction.
Although satisfactory results can be obtained through liposuction which removes excessive amounts of subcutaneous fat, it is recommended that one undergoes abdominoplasty as well if abdominal muscles have become weakened and especially if accompanied with excessive skin drooping.
2. Thigh Liposuction
The thigh is another area where fat easily accumulates, especially for women. If fat is accumulated around the thighs, the area looks unappealing.
Fat accumulation around the thighs is a problem affecting women starting from their late teens all the way to adulthood. This area is typically resistant to effects of exercise and diet. Liposuction is thus effective for such problematic areas that are otherwise resistant to weight-loss measures.
3. Buttock Liposuction
Fat accumulation in the buttocks of a woman becomes worse as one gets older. Fat especially accumulates in the outer creases between the buttocks and thighs, and it becomes noticeable that the buttocks droop and fat is accumulated in the thighs.
Buttock liposuction corrects mainly the outer two sections of each buttock (if a buttock was divided into 3 sections). During surgery, it is important that care is taken not to make the center of the buttocks too flat. Buttock liposuction is able to augment drooping buttocks caused by ageing into a curvy contour like those of a young woman's. In some cases, fat can be accumulated in a small part of the upper buttocks (between the lower waist and buttocks). Even in this situation, the buttocks' shape can be corrected and the curve along the waist and buttocks (side view) can be changed into a beautiful one through liposuction.
4. Waist Liposuction
For men, fat accumulation at the waist often occurs at the sides (love handle). For women, it often occurs at the upper buttocks, the area right above the pelvic bones.
All of these problems can be corrected through liposuction, which is often combined with abdominal liposuction. Waist liposuction dramatically reduces waist circumference. Those who have undergone the surgery tend to be very satisfied with the fact that he/she can wear smaller sized clothes (1-2 sizes smaller).
5. Back Liposuction
Excessive fat accumulation on the back creates an unappealing crease on the mid-back or below the armpit. This crease is often visible even if the person is wearing clothes. Back liposuction can help correct this.
6. Arm Liposuction
Fat accumulation in the arm often occurs in the area between the elbow and armpit. This typically cannot be corrected even by exercise or diet.
Those affected by this condition, especially women, who may have an issue wearing sleeveless clothes can consider undergoing arm liposuction.
The back section of the arm where fat accumulation mainly occurs will be the main area undergoing liposuction. Through this procedure, the arm contours can be improved to an attractive one.
7. Facial Liposuction
As a person becomes older, fat is often accumulated in the lower face and neck in connection with the chin line. This symptom, often resulting in a pouch-shaped area among the lower face, chin, and neckline (aptly termed a 'turkey neck') can occur due to genetic reasons. These areas can be corrected through liposuction.
During facial liposuction, the face line can be improved through the process of removing surplus fat in the lower face, chin line, and neck and reattaching skin in the spaces where fat had been removed.
8. Calf Liposuction
For those susceptible to lower-body obesity, excessive amounts of fat can accumulate at the calves. This fat in the calves (and ankles) can be removed through liposuction similarly to other areas of the body, resulting in an attractive ankle line.
9. Breast Or Chest Liposuction
Breast Or Chest Liposuction is more frequently applied to men than women. There are cases of men having breasts / chests with excessive amounts of fat, almost like those of a woman.
If a man has gynecomastia, a good correction effect can be obtained through vaser internal liposuction. If a woman has overly large breasts, those can be reduced to a more feminine shape through breast liposuction as well as reduction mammoplasty.
