What Is a Comprehensive Liposuction Makeover?

3 Minute Read: 

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that nearly everyone has heard of; however, most people don’t fully know the transformative power of this fat reduction procedure. While many women and men think of liposuction as a way to remove stubborn fat from the belly, thighs, hips, and flanks, liposuction offers many more benefits that can help you achieve a total body makeover!

Below, we’ll look at liposuction to help you better understand how this procedure can help you achieve a thinner, more toned appearance, which can help you look your best and boost your confidence.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction surgery is a procedure in which fat is literally vacuumed out of your body. 

For this procedure, small incisions are made in the target area. A thin tube called a cannula loosens subcutaneous fat before it is suctioned out. 

What makes liposuction even better is that the removed fat is gone permanently, which means that you can enjoy your new contours for years to come — as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Where Can You Have Liposuction Performed?

Along with the thighs and midsection (belly, hips, flanks, and love handles), liposuction can be used to sculpt multiple areas of the body. This allows liposuction to be one of the most helpful and effective plastic surgery procedures available to men and women. 

Liposuction surgery and its results can be customized to your specific cosmetic desires. Here are some of the most common areas that liposuction can help you:

The Body

Fat on the back can be removed with liposuction, allowing you to achieve a more toned appearance. In addition to these areas, liposuction can help remove unwanted fat in the chest or knees.

Ultimately, liposuction can help you feel more comfortable with your figure, whether your clothes are on or off.

The Face

Liposuction surgery can help add definition and contour to the chin and neck. This procedure can help eliminate a “turkey neck,” double chin, and other fullness in the area, making you look heavier and more aged than you want.

How Else Can You Benefit From Liposuction? 

Liposuction is one of the most versatile cosmetic procedures available to women and men. This is because liposuction can be performed as a standalone surgery or included in other procedures. 

Some examples of procedures that utilize liposuction include tummy tuck surgery, arm lift surgery, and various breast procedures (such as breast reduction surgery). 

One of the reasons that patients choose these more complex procedures is that liposuction removes fat from the body but does not address loose skin or sagging tissue. These other procedures trim and tighten skin for a more toned and natural appearance. This is particularly beneficial if you have lost significant weight over a short period (such as with bariatric surgery). 

Post-weight-loss surgery utilizes liposuction to remove stubborn fat that may still be present in various areas of your body.

Additionally, many women and men combine other procedures to complement their stunning liposuction results. Some of these procedures include breast augmentation surgery, breast lift surgery (mastopexy), and Mommy Makeover surgery.

By combining one or more of these other surgical procedures, you can achieve a more dramatic and comprehensive result to improve your overall appearance and turn heads for all the right reasons!
