      Hard to say without an exam or pictures.  Liposuction results are highly surgeon dependent.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Upper body liposuction can be effective.

Hi.

You really need a detailed physical exam to see whether liposuction has a role for you.  Your disproportion can be caused by other tissues, such as bone or muscle, which of course cannot be surgically reduced.
