Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed today. When most people think of liposuction, sculpting of the waistline or thighs comes to mind. Liposuction is much more versatile than just addressing love handles or a “muffin top.” For satisfactory results, all that’s required is good skin elasticity.
Excess fat doesn’t just accumulate below the waistline. Some people find the buildup of fat around the neck and jaw line to be even more bothersome. Liposuction is an effective way to remove those excess pockets of fat below the chin and around the neck for a smoother facial profile. This can have a result that looks similar to weight loss. For even more dramatic results, consider a combination of liposuction and a skin rejuvenation procedure.
The upper arm area is another popular place for a liposuction procedure. This area is a common place for fat to accumulate, leading to arms that are embarrassing to flaunt during the warm weather months. Liposuction removes those excess fat pockets for smoother, younger looking arms. The procedure is usually recommended for patients with good skin elasticity. Patients that have excess sagging skin, as well as fat pockets, may need to combine liposuction with an arm lift for the best possible results.
The inner knee is another common area of the body where excess fat gets stored. That accumulated fat can result in knees that appear disproportionate to the rest of the leg. If those knees are not responding to diet and exercise as you hoped, liposuction for the inner knee can immediately remove stubborn fat pockets for a leaner, sexier leg that you will love to show off under shorts and skirts. Keep in mind that recovery from liposuction of the knees may take a bit longer, since the knees are further from the heart than other areas where liposuction is commonly used.
