Which Bodily Areas can be Treated with Liposuction?


December 19, 2012

The plastic surgery procedure known as liposuction is a technique that can effectively remove excess fat from numerous parts of the body. The treatment targets specific bodily areas that gather fat easily and often remain regardless of diet and exercise regime. Stubborn areas of fat deposits also typically increase with age. Such accumulative fatty areas include the:

  • Hips
  • Neck
  • Back
  • Flanks
  • Arms
  • Breasts
  • Buttocks
  • Abdominal region

Liposuction Enhances Bodily Appearance

Liposuction surgery suctions unwanted fat through tiny hollow metal tubes known as cannulas. The two types of liposuction performed at the Centre for Plastic Surgery are tumescent liposuction and ultrasonic, or ultrasound assisted, liposuction. Each procedure has its own unique benefits.

Following liposuction, you can expect visually pleasing results that appear contoured and well-proportioned. The outcome is long term, provided you abide by a healthy diet and maintain your weight. Liposuction completely removes fat cells, which will not return to your body if you take care of yourself.

If you would like more information on liposuction treatments and live in Grand Rapids, Michigan, please contact the Centre for Plastic Surgery to speak with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons and schedule your consultation today.
