Getting in shape is a big feat, and it can be gratifying to see the bodily changes that occur. However, many people continue to feel displeased with the appearance of their bodies. Small pockets of fat may be resistant to exercise and diet, which can lead to frustration. In these cases, liposuction can be an effective, targeted solution to help you achieve the attractive figure you desire.
Continue reading to learn more about how liposuction can help rid you of stubborn areas of fat.
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that gets rid of unwanted deposits of fat. It is important that those considering liposuction understand that the procedure is not intended to be a weight loss surgery. However, you may notice a slimmer waistline, smaller arms, and more shapely thighs and hips, which in turn can make you look trimmer.
Liposuction is ideal for those that are in good overall health and at a stable weight but have pockets of fat in specific areas of the body that don’t seem to respond well to diet and exercise. Candidates should also have cosmetic goals that are realistic and in line with the expected liposuction outcomes.
Liposuction targets areas of the body that are commonly regarded as “problem areas,” including:
- Stomach, abdomen, and waistline
- Hips and love handles
- Back (particularly below the bra band)
Liposuction can also be used to shape these areas in a technique known as body contouring.
