5 Surprising Areas that Liposuction Can Enhance

by

Sometimes, in spite of diet and exercise, stubborn pockets of fat remain. Many patients who decide to end their battle with these problem areas find liposuction to be a very effective solution. In fact, this surgery might fix a number of problem areas that you did not even realize could be transformed.

Neck and Jawline (Double Chin)

Excess fat nestled into the chin and along the jawline can give the suggestion of advancing age or make a person look heavier than they are. By eliminating the fat under the chin and throughout the neck with liposuction, a patient can appear slimmer and younger.

Chest

Men with excess fat in their chests might feel that they do not appear as masculine as they could. This fatty buildup may be the result of advancing age, a hormonal imbalance, or even a side effect of certain medications. To resolve their concerns, our male patients are turning to Dr. Franckle for help. Liposuction (and for some tissue excision) can return the male chest to a state of smooth and firm definition.

“Muffin Top”

The dreaded muffin top. Men and women alike complain about excess fat spilling over jeans, or for women, bulging around a bikini top or bra. Fat deposits around the upper torso and lower back are very common, and our patients have seen great results with a liposuction procedure. Liposuction could restore the lean, svelte curves you so desire.

Outer Thighs or “Saddle Bags”

Along with the abdomen, the upper thighs are the most requested area for women to have liposuctioned in our office. It is a very common area of the body for women to carry excess weight. While working to create an overall slim, toned upper thigh, so many of us forget about the outer thigh or the “saddle bag.” That area of the leg does not always respond to diet and exercise as well as the inner thigh or back of the leg. That is where liposuction can help!

Ankles or “Cankles”

The ankles are another common trouble spot for many women. In fact, this area is so problematic that people have even given thick and unattractive ankles the nickname “cankles.” If the issue is deposits of fat around the ankles, liposuction could help slim down the ankles and make you confident enough to wear sandals and anklets once again.
