liposuctionMany people struggle with excess fat. Whether it be because of age, pregnancy, or weight gain, having excess fat is not ideal. Sometimes, even with a proper diet and exercise, it can be impossible to lose it all on your own. While each patient is different in body type and goals, there are some common areas where patients, both male and female, want to lose stubborn fat deposits. Numerous people are turning to liposuction to help them achieve their physical goals. In this blog, we cover some of the common areas people get liposuction so you can see if this procedure can be beneficial to you.

Common Places For Liposuction


Facial (Submental) Liposuction removes fat from the chin and neck areas, creating a sharper jawline and eliminating a double chin and any fullness in the neck. Excess fat and sagging skin around the chin/neck area can be due to age, weight, or genetics. This can help slim up these areas to promote a more youthful appearance.

Upper Arms

It’s common for excess fat to accumulate in the upper arm region. Also known as “bat wings,” liposuction in the upper arms helps remove excess fat and tighten the skin, resulting in a more toned and slim appearance.


Everybody wants a flat stomach. For many people, the portion of fat sitting above their abdominal muscles can seem impossible to lose. Liposuction of the abdomen, often referred to as “tummy liposuction,” can help remove excess fat and contour the abdominal area, creating a more defined waistline.

Hips & Flanks

The hips are a spot where lots of excess fat can reside, especially for women. Pregnancy can cause more fat to go to this area, and it can be difficult to get rid of once pregnancy is over. Liposuction in these areas, commonly known as “love handles” or “muffin tops,” can address the accumulation of fat around the sides and back of the waistline.


The back might not be the first place you think of when you think of liposuction. However, it can be beneficial to get liposuction in this area, as it can address “bra rolls” or other pockets of fat that can be present. This can improve overall body contouring.
