Common areas for fat removal surgery and how it helps

Liposuction uses a small thin tube, called a cannula. It is inserted into the targeted areas through a tiny skin incision. With a gentle massaging motion and suctioning mechanism, Dr. Huertas uses the cannula to remove unwanted fat cells and tissue, while simultaneously delivering local anesthesia. Dr. Huertas' technique offers better body sculpting results, less discomfort during fat removal surgery, and less bruising during the recovery period.

While it is not considered a weight-loss treatment, several areas can be transformed with liposuction. It can also be tailored for either men or women, as each gender typically has different aesthetic goals for this body contouring technique. Female patients, generally, choose the abdomen, hips, and thighs for treatment. Male patients, typically, look to liposuction for help with their chest area, lower back or "love handles," and stomach. However, one size does not fit all, and liposuction is highly effective for both genders. Here is a look at the most common areas our Dallas, TX office often treats with liposuction and how it can impact a patient's appearance.

  • The abdomen area is one of the most popular areas for liposuction. Fat removal on the upper, lower, or entire midsection can create a slimmer, more contoured profile.
  • Upper arms can harbor excess fatty tissue, particularly for women, due to hormonal changes, age, and lack of muscle laxity. Liposuction done in conjunction with an arm lift is highly effective at providing patients with a more tone, fit-looking upper arm area.
  • The back can be a problematic area to eliminate pockets of stubborn fat for both genders. This region includes the "love handles" or lower back, while for women, it is the upper back, or "bra fat" area. This fat removal surgery can smooth out those areas of concern, leaving patients feeling more confident with their backside.
  • Liposuction is highly effective at removing excess fat on the outer, inner, or both sides of the thigh area, giving patients more toned, fit-looking legs.
  • A popular area for women is the hip area, which can provide patients with a more feminine, curvy silhouette.
