What Body Areas Can Be Treated with Liposuction?

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons Serving Denver, Aurora, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, and Nearby Colorado

You may think of liposuction for treatment of larger problem areas on your body, like your abdomen and thighs, but the procedure can treat almost any area of your body that holds onto stubborn pockets of fatty tissue. Our plastic surgeons use a variety of liposuction techniques to customize your procedure.

Facial Liposuction

Many patients are surprised to learn that liposuction is a safe and effective way to sculpt away the unwanted fat in and around your face. If you are tired of excess fat around the following areas, then facial liposuction may be the answer to slim your face and define your jaw:

  • Neck
  • Chin
  • Cheeks
  • Jaw line

Upper Body Liposuction

For some patients, unwanted fat lingers in their upper torso or arms despite a rigorous diet and exercise routine. This can lead to a lack of self confidence and dissatisfaction with your physique. Liposuction can help to slim and define:

  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Chest

For men who suffer with excess breast tissue, we use liposuction for male breast reduction (gynecomastia). And for men or women who have stubborn fat pockets on their back, liposuction is an effective means to smooth out and redefine those areas.

Lower Body Liposuction

The lower body is the region most people think of when they think liposuction. Your entire figure can benefit from liposuction in areas such as:

  • Abomen
  • Lower back
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs

When you have liposuction in one of these larger regions, the results can be subtle, yet dramatic. Slimming your thighs and abs can give you that finished look that diet and exercise just never achieve for you.

Liposuction is not an effective weight loss tool. It is meant only for body sculpting. To be a good candidate for any liposuction procedure, you should be close to your ideal weight and in good general health.
