Liposuction is an incredibly versatile procedure that can be used to target your specific trouble zones. The most common liposuction areas of treatment are the waist and flanks, but many people don’t realize that liposuction can be used to treat a broad range of problem spots.
Your Back and Upper Torso
Many people deal with deposits of fat around their upper torso. This is the cause of those annoying “bra bulges.” Liposuction in the upper back can be used to effectively treat bra bulge* and is often combined with liposuction around the waist.
While breast liposuction won’t cause a significant size reduction, it can help to provide some reshaping of the breasts.* Breast liposuction may be an option for women who are more interested in reshaping their breasts rather than a traditional surgical breast reduction.

If you have extra fat around your jawline, it can create the appearance of a double chin. Fat around the jawline rarely responds to exercise, and it can be frustrating if you’ve lost weight elsewhere but still struggle with facial fat. Submental liposuction can treat the area under your chin, typically using a very small cannula that’s best suited for this small target spot.
Cankles: the not-so-flattering term describing the way a person’s calves seem to lead right to their feet, without the elegant taper between calf and ankle. Delicately performed leg liposuction can remove fat cells that contribute to the cankle look.*
