Liposuction can achieve a sleeker body contour by removing pockets of stubborn fat. These are some of the most common areas for leading liposuction surgeon, Dr. Guirguis, to treat in the mid to lower body:
Many men and women carry fat in the stomach and waist, and it can be incredibly difficult to eliminate unwanted bulges with exercise or diet alone. Liposuction is the best way to get rid of stubborn belly fat located below the surface of the skin. Essential factors that influence the success of abdominal liposuction include the following: history of weight gain and weight loss, the amount and location of abdomen fat, the age and the sex of the patient and history of pregnancy.
For people who are concerned about the extra fat of their buttocks, liposuction may be considered as an effective solution to tone the area. This procedure can reduce the size of the buttocks and decrease the amount of sag. However, it is important that your surgeon is experienced in targeting this area, as unnatural and disappointing results are sometimes achieved by excessive buttocks fat removal.
The inner thigh area is a common area of concern for women. Not only does inner thigh liposuction improve the overall leg contour for improved proportions, it can also minimize the rubbing together of the inner thighs, reducing the discomfort resulting from chafing.
Patients who undergo inner thigh liposuction, often experience a faster rate of recovery.
The outer thighs, also known as “saddle bags”, are one of the most common problem areas in women.
Calf liposuction is only suitable for people with a large amount of subcutaneous fat that has accumulated on their calves. This procedure can enhance the appearance of your lower legs and boost your self-confidence considerably by giving you a more defined contour.
If your ankles are not distinguishable from your lower legs, then you may have “cankles”. The most common cankle causes include water retention, obesity and hereditary predisposition. Liposuction can treat this issue and improve the shapeliness of the lower leg only if the cause is excess fat accumulation.
