Liposuction by Body Area

Liposuction is consistently among the most commonly sought cosmetic surgery procedures and is one of the most effective procedures to create the body contour you want. By removing stubborn pockets of unwanted fat, the skilled fellowship trained and board-certified cosmetic surgeons of Moy, Fincher, Chipps Facial Plastics & Dermatology are able to sculpt different areas of your body to create a more pleasing overall appearance. Some of the most common body areas treated include:


This is one of the most common areas for liposuction. The abdomen requires rigorous care and attention to detail. In order to provide natural contours and smooth lines, MFC uses a gentle and highly conservative approach to eliminate fat in the abdomen. Stubborn fat that is localized in the lower abdomen can create a belly pooch, even in people of normal weight. The area between your belly button and ribs holds on to stubborn fat and is almost impossible to resolve with diet and exercise alone. Liposuction is perfectly suited for treating the lower abdomen and upper abdomen.


Excess fat creates dimpling and sagging and rolls under the buttocks. This creates an unbalanced figure and silhouette. The goal is symmetry. Liposuction can resize and reshape the buttocks to smooth the tissue and improve your proportions. As with any liposuction procedure, MFC uses a comprehensive approach towards giving your buttocks the desired shape and proportion.


For patients looking to reduce fat that has accumulated in their upper or lower back, they will be pleased to know that the back is one of the best areas for liposuction. MFC can use a highly aggressive approach without being concerned about excess skin or damage to surrounding back tissues. In fact, some of the most dramatic results from liposuction can be seen when it is applied to the back.


The waist and flanks (the sides of the abdomen) are common areas for liposuction because no amount of dieting and exercise alone can provide the contours and definition you desire. Even people of normal weight can have love handles or a muffin top. The flanks are one of the most common liposuction areas for both male and female patients.


The hips area is where excess fat can create lumps and bumps. Smooth shapely hips help to provide a better silhouette. Liposuction can help you achieve a more well-defined shape and enhance the appearance of your buttocks too. The hips are unfortunately prone to accumulating somewhat unrelenting pockets of fat. In certain cases, hip liposuction is the surest way to achieve the slimmer and fitter physique.


Male breast enlargement, also known as gynecomastia, is a condition that can cause considerable distress and insecurity if left untreated. The good news is male breast enlargement is completely benign and will not cause problems with your health. Liposuction is perfectly suited to reduce and remove unwanted fat from the chest.


In the quest to find facial symmetry and balance, many patients find that they need to reduce volume in the chin and neck. When these areas accumulate excess fat, they can detract from a person’s appearance and confidence. Facial and neck liposuction require a deft touch. The cosmetic surgeons at MFC are experts in dermatology and facial cosmetic surgery. Whether you have a double chin or simply lack of definition in the jawline, neck and facial liposuction may be the best solution for an improved profile.


When fat gathers at the outer thighs it is called “saddle bags”. Liposuction can eliminate saddle bags that convey the appearance of inactive lifestyle and aging. This will improve your look in clothes. When fat accumulates on the inner thighs, they can be contoured to provide the coveted “thigh gap”, and to reduce inner thigh rubbing.

Calves and Ankles

When it comes to stubborn pockets of fat, there is perhaps no tougher area than the calves and ankles. These are two areas where fat accumulation is almost solely due to genetics. Thick calves and so-called “cankles” can now be a thing of the past when patients see MFC for liposuction. No amount of exercise can contour this problem area. Liposuction can slim the ankle for an overall healthier appearance.
