From the most active fitness buffs to the naturally thin, people tend have minor problem areas that retain very stubborn fat cells. This is particularly common in women, because their bodies biologically require more fat storage to function healthily.
If this is a problem that causes you to lose sleep at night, liposuction can be a great solution by targeting the specific areas of concern. Undergoing a liposuction treatment in any of these areas can help your body match up to your standards.
Jowls are a key signature of the elderly and the overweight. Early onset of the fatty deposits that cause a double chin can prematurely age you. A simple liposuction procedure to remove excess skin and fat from under the chin and around the upper neck will slim the jawline. This will make your entire image appear slimmer, and can also take a few years off the appearance of your face.
Small bulges around bras and swimsuit tops can make most women feel uncomfortable. Liposuction in the back and upper torso can significantly reduce the sight of fatty bulges and create smoother curves.
The average ankle makes the transition from foot to calf in a trim and elegant way. Every so often, an ankle will be surrounded by extra fat deposits that create the appearance of permanent swelling. The interruption of a smooth line here can make even the most self-confident individual embarrassed, especially if the term cankles is regularly thrown at you. Liposuction can make this area look more slender and can create a longer silhouette for your legs.
Busty women tend to enjoy the idea of being a little less top heavy. The fear of potential scarring may make some women apprehensive when considering surgical breast reduction. Choosing liposuction instead can create that slender look many women seek, without the unsightly scaring that can sometimes occur after surgery.
Just remember, liposuction in this area will not create a significant reduction. It is better suited for subtle reshaping.
The Male Chest
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes the development of male breasts, which is more common with age-related hormone changes. Unfortunately, this can be a difficult embarrassment to eradicate, even with vigorous exercise and proper diet. Liposuction in the male chest can help reveal muscular definition for a more streamlined torso, with curves in the right places.
Always remember that liposuction procedures are treatments, not cures. Once you have properly healed, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle balanced with diet and exercise. Otherwise, you risk wasting your time, your doctor’s time and your money.
