5 Popular Target Spots for Lipo

Liposuction is among the most common cosmetic procedures performed, and can be an ideal way to contour problem areas that won’t respond to diet or exercise. With liposuction, excess fat is removed from a targeted area, which is then reshaped, resulting in a sleeker contour.

Though effective on many parts of the body, there are five target spots that are the most popular for this body contouring surgery.

Love Handles

Most people don’t have a lot of love for their love handles. This layer of fat around the midsection falls above the waistline, and can contribute to the dreaded ‘muffin top.’


Some people carry unwanted weight in their thighs. Inner thighs that rub together or excess baggage on the outer thighs (also known as ‘saddle bags’) are two areas of concern that can lead people to consider lipo.

Upper Arms

During the aging process, the body can start storing fat in different areas than your younger years. The upper arm is one of these places, particularly in women. Lipo can help refine the upper arms to better reveal muscle tone.

Back (Bra Bulge)

Many women carry fat deposits in their back that, when wearing a bra, causes the fat to bulge or creates undesirable back rolls. With lipo, these stubborn spots can be streamlined for a smooth silhouette again.

Under the Chin

People who struggle with double chins may find that no exercise regimen will rid them of the unwanted fat under the chin. Liposuction using a small cannula can perfectly target this area for a stronger jawline.

Whichever you may consider to be your problem spot, liposuction may provide a solution. The popular cosmetic procedure can target localized areas of the body, reshaping your figure for smooth, natural results and even a more youthful appearance.
