For even the most active men and women, thighs and hips can be among the most stubborn areas to work off fat deposits. Sculpting the ideal thigh gap or perfectly shaped buttocks often requires more than a diet or exercise regimen. Saddlebags, or large deposits of fat on the outside of the thighs, are a common problem among women that can be easily solved with liposuction treatment.
For some women, achieving the perfect hourglass figure marks the completion of their weight loss or fitness journey. Unfortunately, even for naturally slim women, this figure may be unattainable without the help of plastic surgery. Liposuction has helped women of all body shapes and sizes achieve an hourglass figure by sculpting waistlines inward and shaping the hips with the right amount of curvature.
Achieving the ideal hourglass figure for women also means having a chest area that fits well with their body type. By removing excess fat in undesirable areas like the sides of the breasts near the armpits and directly beneath the breasts, a more defined bust can be achieved. For men, having any excess fat in the chest area can be considered problematic or unattractive. Liposuction is a great option for men who are looking to flatten and define this region of their body.
One of the most common places for excess fat to store itself is in the stomach area. Many women attempt to conceal these stores of fat by wearing loose clothing. Men who struggle with the same type of belly fat often find that their abdomen hangs below their beltline. Liposuction can remove this fat to provide a more flat and sculpted abdominal contour.
Flabby arms, often referred to as “bat wings,” are a common problem. Exercising the arms can result in additional muscle mass, which may go against the aesthetic of someone looking for taut, slim arms. Liposuction allows for the removal of fat without the growth of any additional muscle mass.
The area directly beneath the bra line is also notorious for storing fat deposits. Many men and women face difficulty when they attempt to wear accentuating clothing. They are often met with lumps, folds, or bulges in the tighter parts of their outfits. By removing fat throughout an individual’s back, the patient will be able to more comfortably wear tailored or slim clothing.
For many people, disproportionate calves can feel like a problem without a solution. Similar to fat deposits in the arms, many of the traditional methods of fat loss, like running and weight training, can add mass to the calf area. Sometimes, this issue can travel even further down an individual’s leg, resulting in what is colloquially referred to as “cankles,” or ankles that are surrounded by noticeable fat deposits. Liposuction can solve both of these issues by reducing the overall mass of someone’s calves and removing excess fat from the ankles to restore their natural appearance.
The face is the first area that people tend to notice weight gain. Even the smallest amount of excess fat can produce a double chin, chubby cheeks, and unwanted neck fat. For many people, these features are genetic and have little to do with weight fluctuation. Since there is no way to exercise the face the same way you could exercise the abdomen or chest muscles, these facial features can often only be solved through liposuction techniques.
