Getting rid of the “muffin top” is a feat of its own. With liposuction, patients have the opportunity to tighten the area and tone the abdomen.

But, before the procedure begins, the doctor will first inspect the stomach.They will analyze the level of elasticity and add the proper markings to avoid saggy skin. If a patient has excessive proportions of fat or severe skin laxity, they could be advised to get a tummy tuck instead.

2.   Butt

Most plastic surgeons will advise against a buttocks liposuction since the treatment can cause that part of the body to look flat or completely deflated. A more practical solution would be a Brazilian butt lift. It reshapes the skin and gives the muscles a curvy look.

3.   Mons Area

The extra fatty tissues that build up in the mons pubis can make the area look bigger. Liposuction can correct this effect. The procedure starts with general anesthesia. Then the tissues are suctioned outside. The body will recover quickly.

4.   Side Breast Area

For a fuller effect, liposuction can get rid of the excess fat on the side of the breasts. This is an effective treatment for those looking to reduce their breast size and side boobs. Often this can make your actual breast look more full and perky.

5.   Breasts

With age, the breasts get a saggy look. Depending on the patient, liposuction can harvest fat from a different part of your body for the fat to be then injected in your breasts to add volume.

6.   Arms

Liposuction on this particular area can give the arms a more natural look. In certain cases, excising excess skin may be necessary along with the liposuction.

7.   Neck

9.   Back

Patients whose skin on the back overlaps often choose this type of area for liposuction. Since the spot is pretty thick, it easily handles the treatment. To speed up the rejuvenation process, various compression garments can be worn. For quicker recovery and safer treatment, assisted liposuction might be a better alternative for this type of treatment.

10.   Curvy Waist

This is one of the most noticeable areas to body contour. It is one of the most responsive areas to cosmetic treatment. The elasticity of the skin after we gain weight makes it a favorable spot for liposuction. The treated areas quickly take shape, and the skin tightens around the waist.

FAQ

The more pounds you gain after the procedure, the less evident the results will be. The procedure will remove 4 pounds of fat. If you regain that fat back, you will still notice the results as it changes your body contours.
