Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that can be done basically on any part of the body, but naturally some areas are more common than others. Dr. Alvarez has had many years of practice when it comes to liposuction and the different areas the procedure can be done. More commonly patients may get liposuction done in their tummy area as a form of weight loss or simply because they cannot shed those few pounds of fat within their tummy. Other times people may have a hard time losing those few extra pounds of fat in their tummy area that will give them a flat tummy they desire. As a result, patients turn to liposuction.
Liposuction can really be utilized on any part of the body to remove excess fat in unwanted areas. Some of the areas include the tummy, love handles area, hips, thighs, bottom area, arms, and legs. Liposuction is more commonly done on different areas of the body during a “mommy makeover” or in an instance where a individual gained a significant amount of weight and they just cannot seem to get rid of it. Most people have the tendency to think that it will get rid of all of the excess weight and once healed, patients will not have anything to worry about and they can continue on with their everyday life. That is not always the case because during a liposuction procedure a very little amount of fat is actually disposed of. The procedure is not made to lose a ton of weight at one time, only a very little amount of fat is removed during any liposuction procedure.
Liposuction is commonly used on various parts of the body, but there is not one specific area over another where the procedure is utilized. More commonly, the tummy area/love handles areas are the most common areas where the procedure is utilized due to the popularity. The procedure in the tummy area is commonly requested by females who have had children and want their pre-baby body back or there is a little pouch of fat that they just can’t seem to lose no matter what different exercises they try. Some female patients may also get other areas treated to completed their look.
Thighs and Hips Area
Another common area female patients get treated are the thighs. No woman likes large thighs where they always seem to rub together or expand like crazy when you sit down. Even though hefty thighs are not a bad feature to have some woman just do not feel comfortable in their own skin when they are like that. Liposuction can help reduce some of the excess fat that has gathered around your thighs.
To even everything out, most women may also get a little shaved off the hips area to compliment the procedure that was done on the thighs. Most times females gain their weight during a pregnancy or a difficult milestone in their life. It happens to the best of us and now there are procedures to help combat the excess fat! A complimentary procedure to liposuction in these areas would be getting a thigh lift, which is just like a tummy tuck because it helps reduce the appearance of sagging skin from areas where fat was lost.
When you talk to some patients who worry about the excess fat they have gained some put their arms up and giggle the fat under their arms. For some people, weight lifting is not their forte or they don’t have a ton of time to devote the gym as they would like. Liposuction can help remove some that excess fat that concerns patients.
Even though liposuction can help resolve some of the excess fat worries that most patients may have, it is not always the answer to everything. Liposuction is a great complimentary procedure to a variety of other procedures Dr. Alvarez can perform.
How Can I Make A Liposuction Procedure Better?
The procedures that are commonly paired with liposuction procedures is all dependent on the area that you are treating. If you get liposuction done on your tummy area and there is some excess skin, a tummy tuck is something to consider. By getting the tummy tuck not only will the excess fat be removed but the excess skin that adds to the pouch on your tummy can be eliminated as well. The same idea can work well if you get liposuction done on your arms because an arm lift can be done to eliminate that excess “jiggly” skin that most people frown down on.
