The Top 7 Body Parts That Can Be Treated With Liposuction

Are you unhappy with a part of your body because you feel it carries excess bulge or fat? Sometimes, no matter how hard you train or how clean you eat, you may still have pesky areas that you wish you could slim faster. Change your life for the better and start living your best life and get your body ready for the beaches of Miami, FL with liposuction. This is a plastic surgery that removes fat from a certain part of the body. It’s used to help slim, shape, or tone your body and create a more appealing silhouette. Some of the most popular places to get liposuction are the stomach, breasts, buttocks, arms, neck, thighs, and back. Many plastic surgeons may suggest working on more than one area at a time, depending on your aesthetic goals. But first, it helps to understand what areas can be treated and getting the information you need.

Types of Liposuction

There are many different types of liposuction, but the most common ones performed in our Miami office are ultrasound-assisted (UAL) liposuction, tumescent or “super-wet” liposuction, and laser-assisted (LAL) liposuction. Choosing which form of liposuction to use will depend on your overall goals, budget, and how much fat you would like removed. During an initial consultation, the discussion about which form of liposuction will work best for you will be thoroughly discussed. If you are getting multiple parts of your body done, your surgeon may recommend multiple types of liposuction.

Liposuction is trending all over the country, so whether you’re in Miami, FL, or on the beaches of the west coast, you can be a part of the movement to have the body you want and live a more confident life.

Liposuction of the Stomach

Excess fat in the lower or upper abdomen can be a source of frustration. For that reason, many men and women simply do not like the appearance of their stomach. Liposuction on your upper stomach, lower stomach, or both can be performed to help reduce the appearance of fat and create a slimmer tummy. The lower stomach is commonly known as the “Belly Pooch”. Even people that are slim or at a normal weight can have a pooch in their lower stomach. This is typically a layer of fat called the intra-abdominal fat and liposuction can remove it. You can also use liposuction to smooth out your stomach, so it looks more proportionate.

In addition to the front section of the tummy, are the hips (flanks). One of the most common complaints for both men and women are the frustrating "pudges" of fat that can hang over their jeans. Also known as "love handles," this area is hard to slim even with the most strict diet program. For women, in particular, it can create enough frustration to where they no longer feel comfortable wearing jeans or pants. Liposuction can help solve this problem by removing the extra bulge and allowing you to wear what you want when you want!


Women with full, but perky breasts are sometimes good candidates for liposuction. When liposuction of the breasts is used, the procedure is usually known as a breast reduction. This procedure can help remove discomfort in your breasts, especially if they are oversized, heavy, and if you are active or an athlete. They can be a hindrance and not to mention, many women with large, heavy breasts experience a number of symptoms from skin infections and neck pain, to lower back pain. Yes, it’s nice to have larger breasts, but not if they’re uncomfortable. Men can also get liposuction on their breasts and chest area to diminish the appearance of “man boobs” which is often a bigger problem known as gynecomastia. There are different causes for this, such as hormone imbalances and certain medications.


Liposuction of the buttocks is very common and even though there are a lot of patients who desire larger, more rounder butts, there are far more who look to liposuction to reduce the size. Liposuction of the butt can help create a slimmer backside and also help reduce the appearance of cellulite. If you have excess fat in your buttock, a treatment plan can be created so that you can keep your shape, but reduce the size.


The arms represent another area of great concern, especially for women who desire a shapelier upper body. While liposuction cannot treat the look of loose, hanging skin under the arms, known as "bat wings," it can help reduce unsightly areas of fat that can exist in the armpit and in the upper arm. Slimming your arms through liposuction allows you to wear tighter-fitting shirts with more confidence.


Liposuction can help improve the contour of your neck and can help you get rid of that irritating double chin. It can also tone your jawline to have that sharp look that everyone wants. It is recommended that you get the surgery when you’re younger since you’ll have more elastic skin. Liposuction of the neck and/or chin area can have one of the most dramatic impacts on your facial appearance and profile. Candidates seeking this procedure are often candidates for a laser treatment or another alternative to traditional liposuction surgery since the area is so delicate.


Thighs are a problem area for many people. You can get liposuction on your inner thigh, outer thigh, or both. A lot of people want that thigh gap, but sometimes you can’t get it on your own. Inner thigh liposuction can help achieve that goal. Sometimes, too much outer thigh fat can hinder you from wearing tight-fitting jeans. A total thigh liposuction will help you fit into whatever you want and it’ll help you get more defined thighs. In addition, removing the fat from the thigh area will help compliment the curve of your buttocks.


Back fat can be extremely difficult to get rid of. Most patients, especially women, have heard of the term “bra fat”. This is the fat that sticks out when you put on a bra. This can be on your sides and around your back and it is generally not flattering, especially if you’re wearing a bikini. Liposuction can remove this fat and help you feel more confident during the warmer months as well as for bikini season. Liposuction can also remove fat rolls and can smooth out the back if it looks disproportionate.

Liposuction is one of the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures in Miami. Don’t wait to start having a more toned body. Research your options and call our plastic surgery center to set up an appointment. It’s time to start getting the body you have always wanted so you can hit the beaches of Miami and simply live your best life.
