Where on Your Body Can You Get Liposuction?

For many of us, when we think of plastic surgery, we think of liposuction, which is hardly surprising, as it is the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the U.S. (after breast augmentation). With over 260,000 liposuction procedures performed per year in the U.S., the aesthetic and health benefits of removing fatty cells from one’s physique are well known.

One frequent question Dr. Scott Fabrer hears at Farber Plastic Surgery is where on the body can liposuction be performed? So, in this article, Dr. Farber gives a quick rundown of the liposuction procedure and what body regions are best treated with liposuction.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat deposits from the body. It is considered the most effective minimally invasive treatment for localized fat deposits. It also helps individuals with weight loss by removing stubborn areas of fat from areas of the body where the fat is the most persistent.

The procedure works by creating a micro-incision in the desired treatment area, then introducing a fine-tipped cannula, which extracts fatty cells and tissue using a controlled vacuum.

Strictly speaking, liposuction can be performed anywhere on the body with unwanted deposits of excess fat. Typically, the areas targeted for treatment include the abdomen, buttocks, back, breasts, hips, and thighs, especially as these areas tend to be fleshy and not close to the bone, which is critical for selecting a liposuction site.

Depending on your desired outcome for the procedure, some patients might experience the best results by performing liposuction in conjunction with other region-specific treatments, such as a Brazilian butt lift, thigh lift, tummy tuck, or arm lift.

Surgical liposuction is often recommended in the treatment of hidden fat storage that can cause certain skin conditions such as diabetic cystic acne and mild to moderate cellulite.
