Liposuction remains one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures across America. There are more than a dozen body areas you can have liposuction performed to permanently remove fat cells, and you’ve likely never thought of some of the smaller places liposuction can be done.
The abdomen, thigh and “love handles” are some of the most common places to have liposuction, but these three fatty-areas are nearly impossible to tone through diet and exercise:
Many men and women are embarrassed by bulging fat that hangs over their kneecap. Liposuction is highly effective at removing small fat deposits from your knees. This plastic surgery is done under local anesthesia with little to no downtime required afterward. If you have excess fat in your thighs, liposuction can be done on both areas at once.
“Cankles,” or thick ankles, can be caused by genetics, diet or pregnancy. Water retention during pregnancy can cause your ankles to swell, but this usually goes away after childbirth. Weight gain and your genetics can both cause fat to accumulate around your ankles. Careful, conservative liposuction can contour your ankles and calves.
3. Neck Rings
Neck liposuction can remove excess fat, which may cause rings around your neck. However, if surplus skin is more of an issue, a neck lift can be done in conjunction with liposuction to remove skin tissue and contour your neck. Liposuction of your cervical area can be done along with your submandibular area to remove both neck fat and a double chin.
