What Body Areas Can Be Treated with Liposuction?

At the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Desman, can use liposuction to treat nearly any area of the body. Liposuction is a procedure in which stubborn deposits of fat can be removed from areas including:

  • Outer and inner thighs
  • Hips
  • Waist
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Arms
  • Breasts (male and female)
  • Neck

In fact, any part of your body with deposits of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise can be targeted with liposuction.
Ideal candidates for liposuction should be within 10 to 20 pounds of their goal weight. Liposuction can remove excess fat and help skin firm and tighten to muscles, but cannot be safely used to remove significant amounts of fat.
Ideal candidates should also:

  • Have good skin elasticity
  • Be in generally good health
  • Be prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Be willing to follow all of Dr. Desman’s postoperative advice
  • Have realistic expectations

If you are close to your goal weight but have been unable to achieve the look you desire, liposuction can remove stubborn fat deposits to provide you with a more toned, appealing physique.
