Liposuction is extremely effective in reducing or removing localized areas of surplus fat from around the body. Liposuction is typically associated with larger surface areas — like the abdomen, thighs and buttocks — that don’t respond to diet or exercise.
But did you know that liposuction with Vancouver plastic surgeon Eric Pugash can be used to effectively shape and sculpt smaller areas of the body, too? Here are some examples of less-common liposuction treatment areas:
Male Breast Area
Certain men suffer from gynecomastia, a medical condition characterized by excessively large and feminine-like breasts.
Liposuction helps produce a flatter and more masculine chest by removing extra fat from the breast area. If necessary, liposuction techniques can be combined with surgical excision to remove excess glandular tissue.
Underneath the Chin
Many people (even those of a healthy weight) develop a “double chin” or loose fat deposits around the jawline over time, thanks to the normal effects of gravity and age.
Liposuction can slim the jawline, reduce or eliminate a double chin and contour the neck for a thin, attractive and more youthful look.
When too much fat accumulates around the knee, it can make the entire leg look disproportionate or distorted.
Liposuction reduces or eliminates the surplus fat and contours the curves of the knee.
It’s not uncommon for a woman to feel self-conscious of excess fat on the upper back, specifically fat that bulges around bras and bikini tops.
If diet and exercise fails to target “bra bulge,” liposuction can hone in on this area to provide the desired fat removal results for a smoother and more toned-looking upper body.
