Liposuction in fat loss resistant areas
- Well done for your fitness. Good job.
- Your photos suggest that your are an excellent candidate for liposuction of the areas that will not lose weight enough to give you the shape you want
- This is exactly where liposuction works best - changing contour.
- On the pec area, be sure your surgeon is extremely cautious as aggressively liposuction in the pec area can cause permanent rippling and irregularity in an area typically exposed in swim wear.
- The same is true to a lesser extent in the lower abdomen. Best wishes.

Candidate for liposuction?
Liposuction is generally a sculpting procedure. In patients with fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise liposuction can be an excellent solution. It appears that you have a few small areas of such resistant fat deposits.
Ideal Liposuction Candidate
Just looking at the picture, I would say that you are a good candidate for liposuction. However, I would recommend that you seek a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can examine you in-person and give you the best answer. Typically, you are a
candidate if you have excessive subcutaneous fat which is resistant to diet and exercise, like you are experiencing in your pecs, flank, and stomach. If you wish to change the contours of your body. Commonly involved areas are the anterior part of the neck (under the chin), upper arms and armpits, male chest/breasts, trunk abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, inner knees, calves, and ankles. Keep up the good work with the healthy lifestyle; that will improve the results of the procedure.
