Where on Your Body Can You Get Liposuction?

Liposuction has been one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for many years. People often turn to liposuction after embarking on a healthy lifestyle and realize a few months later that no matter how hard they try, they cannot get rid of a stubborn, localized accumulation of flab.

The most popular areas to get liposuction

Among women, the most popular areas to get liposuction include:

  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Waist area
  • Upper arms

Although fat deposits are essential for a shapely, womanly figure, it needs to be properly distributed. Liposuction can help refine and reshape the contours of the hips and buttocks, removing outer thigh “saddlebags”, creating a gap between the thighs when standing, and producing a more proportionately sized derriere. In addition, liposuction is the only treatment that can actually remove those annoying cellulite dimples.

Women often have trouble eliminating love handles and that little pouch of fat on the lower abdomen through diet and exercise, and liposuction can permanently take care of these problems.

Liposuction is also the only way to get rid of the dreaded “batwings” that form on the backs of most women’s upper arms. These flabby areas will not go away no matter how many hours you spend pumping iron.

For men, the most popular areas to get liposuction include:

  • Waist area
  • Breasts
  • Neck

Men are also troubled by stubborn deposits of fat on their abdomen, and liposuction can restore a more manly, younger silhouette. Some men also deposit fat into their necks, producing a triple-chinned, heavy look that does not respond to any type of exercise or diet. However, liposuction can restore a trim, clean look to the neck and chin area.

Liposuction is also the go-to procedure for many men who start to develop the dreaded man-boobs during middle age. Some men afflicted with man-boobs may require a surgical mastectomy, but most can achieve a more manly look with simple liposuction.

Where else can you get liposuction?

You can get liposuction anywhere on your body other than near delicate areas such as the hands, feet, eyes and genital region.


Although most people don’t think much about what their back looks like, fat can form stubborn deposits there and create “bra rolls” and strange sagging structures in the armpit area in both men and women. Some men develop unsightly rolls on their backs. All of these types of stubborn back fat can be treated with liposuction.


The most common part of the face to be subjected to liposuction is the jowls/chin region. A quick liposuction procedure can produce a tighter, smoother look in this area. In addition, some people develop overly plump, childish cheeks, which can be treated with liposuction.


If you are afflicted with “fat calves” you can also use liposuction to restore a slimmer, more youthful look to your lower legs.

You can get liposuction on practically any part of your body where unsightly fat deposits can form. Remember, however, that liposuction can only smooth and reshape your body; it is not a substitute for a healthy diet and a good exercise program.
