If you have been considering cosmetic surgery to remove excess body fat, you have probably heard of liposuction. Liposuction is one of the top three most popular cosmetic procedures currently available. In fact, about 235,000 procedures are done each year according to research data reported by ASPS.
Most individuals who inquire about liposuction are often looking to remove excess body fat from their abdomen. The abdomen is the most frequently treated area with liposuction procedures. However, liposuction can not only be done on the abdomen, but other areas as well, including the arms, breasts, legs, face, and neck. The last few years have seen an increase in liposuction procedures being performed on these other areas. Here is some information to consider if you are looking to remove fat tissue from other areas beside the abdomen.
Excess body fat can be stored in the breasts for both men and women. Liposuction can help women reduce the fat tissue in the breasts and prevent future back problems from developing. This helpful procedure can help with the bulges in the bra line, side boob, and the overall shape and size of the breast.
More recently developed liposuction procedures have been treating the fatty tissue in the face and neck that lead to jowls and wrinkles. Radio or laser frequency liposuction uses new technology to “melt” the excess fat tissue before it is safely removed; this updated procedure does not leave significant scarring. These procedures also help stimulate collagen production in the face which leads to skin tightening that is helpful in combating wrinkles. These face and neck lifts lead to dramatic results with a short recovery time.
Liposuction procedures can also be used on the legs, including the thighs, knees, and calves. Fat tissue can easily be stored in the legs and be difficult to treat with normal exercise routines. Women who are diagnosed with lipedema can even have fat tissue stored in their feet.
