Liposuction is one of the more popular procedures at our Lanham, MD office. While not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle, liposuction can be helpful for anyone contending with stubborn pockets of fat that are not reacting to a good diet and exercise regimen. Below, you’ll find 10 areas of the body that are particularly suited to liposuction.
The type of fat found in your abdomen, also known as subcutaneous fat, can be particularly resistant to diet and exercise. Whether you have a stubborn pooch or an evenly distributed excess of fat, liposuction can work to slim and smooth the area.
Back fat can present itself in a few different ways. Sometimes, it is that annoying bulge beneath a bra strap, other times it can deposit itself on your lower back, or it can even occur on the upper back in the unfortunately named “buffalo hump.” No matter where it lies, liposuction can help to bring relief to these stubborn areas.
- Double Chin
For many of us, a double chin can be a natural sign of aging. For others, it can be attributed to fatty deposits aiding the work of gravity, causing a saggy appearance. In this area, liposuction can work to increase definition for a more youthful and natural look.
In males, a condition called gynecomastia can result in the formation of excess tissue in the breasts. For many, this can be unwanted and ultimately embarrassing. In these instances, liposuction is available to decrease the size and increase definition of the male pectorals. For women, liposuction can remove excess breast fat that could be causing pain, impending athletic ability, or preventing them from feeling their best.
These days, a plump butt is all the rage, but most patients strive for a well-proportioned posterior. When performing liposuction on someone’s behind, Dr. Banks makes sure to keep symmetry in mind and artfully crafts aesthetically pleasing results.
- Love Handles
Otherwise known as flanks, love handles are the pesky fatty deposits that often protrude over the waist of your pants. One of the more stubborn areas, they often persist even when someone has gotten into excellent shape. Luckily, in cases like these, liposuction comes to the rescue.
- Inner Thighs
Inner thigh liposuction can prevent the thighs from uncomfortably rubbing together and can also greatly improve the silhouette of the leg. This is particularly valuable for athletes or those with a high-mobility career or hobby.
- Outer Thighs
Another of the more stubborn areas of the body, the outer thigh is a common target for liposuction. Fat has a habit of gathering here and staying put, regardless of what steps are taken toward a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction can help to smooth this area out and streamline the leg.
- Upper Arms
When we exercise the arms, we are bound to get stronger. However, fatty deposits in the arms can be stubborn, causing people to feel self-conscious, no matter how hard they work out. Liposuction can smooth out a droopy arm so that come summer time, there will be nothing to be embarrassed about.
