Liposculpture is appropriate for a broad range of areas on the body that can be host to excess fat cells. Indeed, liposculpture can be used to treat fatty deposits just about anywhere on the body. The procedure is particularly useful when applied to areas of the body that are genetically predisposed to having fatty deposits and resistant to diet and exercise. When a patient has tried dieting and moderate exercise and had difficulty achieving results in the target area, liposculpture may be the right choice.
Some of the most popular areas:
- Neck and jowls
- Male and female breasts
- Love handles
An important thing to remember when trying to decide whether liposculpture is the right procedure for you is that it is not intended for weight loss. The procedure is specifically valuable as a treatment protocol for targeting diet and exercise-resistant fatty deposits on the body. There are certain areas on a person's body that are genetically prone to having excess fatty deposits and these areas respond particularly well to liposculpture.
Saddlebags are characterized by excess fat deposits on the outer hips. Unfortunately, saddlebags are often resistant to dieting and exercise efforts.
Chin, Neck, and Jowls
Some patients have excess fat and skin in the chin, neck, and jowls due to a genetic predisposition or as a side effect of having lost an excessive amount of weight. Liposculpture in combination with a facelift can produce dramatic and positive results.
Some men and women naturally store fat in the waistline resulting in "love handles" or excess fatty deposits in the midriff. Liposculpture is a tool that can be used to rid patients of love handles that are not responding to good nutrition and a solid exercise program.
Liposculpture can help contour the abdominal area, offering both men and women a more toned and fit appearance.
