Liposuction Treatment Areas

Posted February 25, 2016 in Liposuction Category

No matter how hard you try to eat healthy and exercise on a regular basis, that may not be enough to lose stubborn areas of fat deposits. Certain areas of your body accumulate fat which just don’t respond to your efforts to trim and tone. Dr. Spies can contour the following areas of the body to improve your shape and permanently get rid of excess fat. Excess fat deposits in the neck causes many to develop what is commonly called a “double chin.”  Liposuction can effectively target unwanted fat below the jawline to significantly improve the appearance of the neck.

Upper Abdomen and Waistline

The upper abdomen and waistline are difficult to tone. For those who desire a slim waist that will highlight the stomach muscles, liposuction can remove excess abdominal fat to reveal a more trim and toned waistline.

Lower Abdomen

The lower abdomen is perhaps the most commonly requested treatment area for liposuction. Most exercises and diet regimes cannot effectively target the lower abdomen. Liposuction can remove unwanted body fat from the lower abdomen to improve its contour which also helps reduce the waistline.


Bra rolls or back rolls are nearly impossible to eliminate without plastic surgery. The lower back, or flank area, is also difficult to tone. Liposuction can remove unwanted fat from back rolls and the flanks to create a smoother back shape that gracefully transitions into the hips.


If the hips develop too much fatty tissue, liposuction can strategically remove the surplus fat to create smoother, rounder, and softer curves that lead into the buttocks.

Upper Arms

The upper arms are a natural fat deposit. Liposuction can tone the arms to reveal a more youthful and nicely toned arm shape.


The inner and outer thighs are other common problem areas, particularly for women. Women may be dissatisfied with the appearance of saddlebags on the outer thighs or the fact that their inner thighs touch or stick together when they stand. Liposuction can eliminate saddlebags and the excess inner thigh fat that causes the thighs to rub when walking.

Knees and Calves

The lower legs can also be treated with liposuction. Excess knee fat as well as fat in the lower legs can all be toned with gentle, careful liposuction.


Women with overly large breasts or men with enlarged male breasts or excess fat in the chest area can benefit from liposuction. Ultrasonic liposuction can improve chest contour for men and, in many cases, eliminate a female-like breast appearance. It can also be used with a breast reduction procedure in women who have overly large breasts in order to create breasts that are more proportionate to the rest of the woman’s body.

Overall Body Enhancement

By improving the shape of one area of the body, a common benefit is that the rest of the body appears more trim and toned. In addition, liposuction can treat multiple areas of the body at once. This procedure can provide overall body enhancement by strategically improving your figure in multiple areas.
