Are you interested in liposuction, but unsure of which areas liposuction can treat?

Wonder no more – we’ve broken down the most common areas where liposuction can help contour and remove fat that just won’t respond to diet and exercise. Some of the body areas on this list might even surprise you!

  • Tummy/Waist – This might be an obvious one; after all, when many people think of where liposuction is performed, they automatically picture the stomach and waistline. Liposuction for the tummy can help remove fat that won’t respond to a healthy lifestyle.
  • Upper Thighs/Buttocks – Two popular liposuction locations include the upper thighs and buttocks. These two body areas are often difficult to whittle through diet and exercise alone, which is why liposuction may be an excellent alternative.
  • Knees/Upper Arms – Surprised by these areas? As it turns out, the knees and upper arms are excellent locations for liposuction. New liposuction technologies have made it possible to target increasingly smaller areas. Liposuction can even be performed on the fat located around the armpits!
  • Neck/Back – Liposuction can help address stubborn fat located around the neck and jawline, as well as fat around the bra line and lower back.

No matter which body area you’re looking to treat, remember this – liposuction isn’t a permanent weight-loss tool. Make sure you’re already following a healthy diet and exercise regimen before you undergo the surgery. Otherwise, the fat may end up coming back!
