Where on Your Body Can You Get Liposuction?

Liposuction has been one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for many years. People often turn to liposuction after adopting a healthy lifestyle, then realizing diet and exercise are not sufficient to eliminate localized fat in certain areas.

The Most Popular Liposuction Treatment Sites for Women

Many of our female patients have trouble with stubborn fat pads in these areas:

  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Upper arms
  • Flanks

While fat deposits are critical to maintaining a shapely figure, there’s no way to control where and how fat gets distributed on your body. Liposuction helps reshape and refine your hips’ and buttocks’ contours while removing cosmetic concerns like muffin tops, saddlebags, and love handles. Also, many patients see a reduction in cellulite after liposuction. 

Fatty upper arms are another aesthetic flaw liposuction addresses. These flabby areas often remain even after spending hours doing triceps exercises such as dips and kickbacks.

Most Popular Treatment Sites for Men

Men typically complain of fat buildup in these trouble spots.

  • Chest
  • Waist area
  • Neck

The abdomen often gives men trouble as well. Liposuction offers a pathway to masculine body outlines for a more manly look.

The neck area is a concern for many men. There, the body produces submental fat, creating a double chin that weight loss doesn’t address. Liposuction can restore a trim, lean neckline for a youthful facial appearance. If you suffer from excess breast tissue, Dr. Cambeiro can help reduce your chest size with liposuction.

Where Else Is Liposuction Appropriate?

Liposuction is suitable anywhere on the body except delicate areas like the feet, eyes, hands, and genitalia.


While most patients don’t think about their back’s appearance, stubborn fat can create cosmetic concerns like bra rolls and sagging folds in men and women. Liposuction can resolve all types of stubborn back fat.


The most common facial treatment site for liposuction is the chin or jowl region. Liposuction can produce a tighter contour and a more defined jawline in this area. Overly plump, childlike cheeks in adults are also an appropriate target site.


For excess fat in the calves, liposuction can provide your lower legs with a sleek, youthful appearance and create the appearance of longer, more toned legs.

Remember, you can get liposuction practically anywhere on the body where fat deposits form. The procedure removes excess fat cells, which will never return. However, it is not a weight loss program or a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
