3 Surprising Areas That Liposuction Can Treat


Liposuction is a renowned solution for stubborn thigh fat and unwanted belly bulges. However, there are many lesser-known trouble spots that this popular procedure can slim and shape. Here are three surprising areas that can be treated with minimally-invasive liposuction surgery.

1. Chin and Neck

Unwanted fullness under the chin is a common and frustrating cosmetic concern. Not only can it resist diet and exercise, but it can also affect people who are at or near their goal weight.

Fortunately, liposuction offers a way to make your lower face look slimmer and more defined. In fact, it’s the quickest method to eliminate a double chin, surpassing even injectable fat reduction treatments. Not to mention that the fat cells removed with liposuction are gone for good.

2. Bra Fat

You may love tight tops and form-fitting dresses. But if you have unwanted bra fat, these types of garments can also undermine your confidence. Bra fat, also known as a bra bulge, is that persistent area of fat on your back that spills out above or below the band of your bra. Sometimes, it can also be visible from the front, peeking out between your bra and armpit.

Liposuction is one of the most common options for dealing with bra fat. It’s versatile and precise enough to work on this small treatment area. Thanks to liposuction, it’s possible to enjoy a smoother, more sculpted upper body — and wear the clothes that you love.

3. Knees 

Even with targeted exercises, it’s impossible to control where you lose fat. This simple truth can make it challenging to deal with excess fat in isolated areas of your body, such as your knees. 

If you’re not seeing results from your efforts to slim the front or sides of your knees, liposuction can effectively pinpoint those spots. It can also give your legs a longer and more streamlined shape. However, keep in mind that liposuction isn’t a treatment for sagging or wrinkled skin.
