With flank liposuction should the doctor also remove the back fat around the spare tire or is that a different "area?"

Flank liposuction - what should it include?
Thank you for asking about your flank liposuction.
- I am sorry your surgeon didn't discuss this with you before surgery.
- If liposuction has to be done in two positions (on your back and on your stomach), it usually is more expensive because it takes longer.
- I think the problem was poor communication before your liposuction -
- So return to your surgeon, show her/him the problem and ask what is needed to get the result you want.

Each surgeon may do things a bit differently and delineate the areas treated differently. Best to review with your surgeon.
