Common Liposuction Treatment Areas

Liposuction is truly a versatile treatment. Using thin tubes called cannulas, fat is disrupted and removed through tiny circular incisions. Once they completely heal and fade, the scars are virtually impossible to see and recognize. Dr. Kleto also works to place the incisions in well-hidden areas whenever possible.

Liposuction can be applied to many areas of the physique, including:

  • Areas of the face
  • The neck
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • “Bra roll” back fat
  • Breasts
  • Chest
  • Male breasts
  • Calves
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • “Banana roll” fat beneath the butt cheeks
  • “Love handles” and “muffin tops”
  • Hips
  • Flanks

These locations tend to hold onto stubborn fat accumulations, even if the rest of your body has slimmed as you pursue weight loss and fitness goals. Liposuction may be the right way to eliminate the persistent fat cells.

Liposuction is very common in the U.S. It usually ranks within the top 5 procedures annually. Although not risk-free, the surgery has a long-standing record of safety and effectiveness when performed by an experienced and qualified surgeon. Dr. Kleto is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and he is personally committed to achieving great results for each one of his patients.

“Who is not a good candidate for liposuction?”

Although liposuction is a highly versatile treatment that can be used to reduce fat on many areas of the body, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s right for your goals. Liposuction wouldn’t be the right treatment for:

  • A lot of skin sagging from a certain area of the body
  • Cellulite
  • Wrinkles

Liposuction is an ideal procedure for removing fat. If there is a lot of excess skin, such as an apron-like section of skin hanging from the abdomen, then a tummy tuck or body lift may need to be performed to remove that skin. These body contouring procedures can often be combined with liposuction for optimal results.
