We’ve all got areas with stubborn fat. Whether your extra fat hides under your chin or around the waist, liposuction can help. This powerful body-shaping treatment offers targeted fat removal and long-lasting results.
If you have stubborn fat, ask Dr. Landis if liposuction is right for you. This versatile treatment can be used on many areas of the body.
Top Areas for Liposuction Treatment
Where do you have stubborn fat? If there’s fat, Dr. Landis can probably perform liposuction. This treatment works from head to toe to permanently remove hard-to-lose fat. Some of the most common treatment areas for liposuction include:
Under the chin – Liposuction is ideal for removing a double chin. Since liposuction doesn’t tighten skin, patients with a lot of loose skin or facial sagging may also benefit from a facelift.
Arms – Excess fat in the upper arms can be treated with liposuction. Removing fat from the arms often improves the fit of short or long-sleeve tops.
Waist – Liposuction can remove extra fat around the waist, creating the appearance of an hourglass shape.
Buttocks – Enhance the shape of your buttocks with liposuction. Removing fat around and on the buttocks can improve their shape, symmetry, and firmness.
Stomach – The stomach area is a popular area for liposuction. This procedure can address muffin tops and love handles. Liposuction is ideal for patients with tight skin—for skin laxity, consider a tummy tuck.
Back – Rolls on the back, especially around the bra line, are often treated with liposuction.
Chest – Men with excess fat in the chest area may benefit from liposuction. Fat removal can address gynecomastia on its own or be paired with surgical reduction techniques to enhance the masculinity of the chest.
While liposuction is versatile and used on most areas of the body, it is not a substitute for weight loss or a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction is a targeted tool that is best employed to shape specific areas of the body. Dr. Landis recommends that patients achieve their ideal weight before considering liposuction.
Put Your Excess Fat to Use – Liposuction Fat Can Improve Other Areas of the Body, Too
Liposuction’s results aren’t limited to the area where fat is removed. Fat from liposuction can be used to enhance other areas of the body. Fat transfer uses this extra fat to volumize and shape areas of the face. Fat transfer creates results that are similar to dermal fillers but last much longer and do not require synthetic fillers.
Once the fat is extracted, it is purified, concentrated, and placed into syringes. Then it is injected into areas of the face that need more volume. Dr. Landis often uses this fat to restore youthful volume to the cheeks or to augment the lips.
If you’re thinking about liposuction, ask about fat transfer too. By putting your extra fat to use, you can improve two areas with your liposuction treatment.
