Top Five Areas for Female Liposuction

There is no denying that liposuction is consistently one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures. This procedure is designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat that remain on the body, despite a balanced low-fat diet and regular exercise.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the leading professional organization for this medical specialty, its member surgeons performed more than 245,000 liposuction procedures in 2017. It ranked just behind breast augmentation in popularity, making it the second most popular cosmetic surgical procedure for that year.

Women are more likely to undergo liposuction than men. According to the ASPS survey, its member surgeons performed more than 218,000 liposuction procedures on women in 2017, also making it the second most popular surgical procedure among women.

There are a number of areas from which fat cells can be removed, but certain ones are more popular than others. Read further, as Dr. Mark Deuber explains which areas his female patients want to target for excess fat removal with liposuction.


The abdomen is, by far, the most common area targeted for fat removal with liposuction. There are several reasons for this.

Dr. Deuber’s patients often want to regain a flatter contour to their abdomen following pregnancy. In other cases, they may have lost a dramatic amount of weight, but still have a few areas with fat cells that they wish to address.

Breast Reduction

In many cases, patients come to see Dr. Deuber for breast reduction procedure. However, some patients may wish to only reduce the size and shape of their breasts by a small to moderate amount, and do not require any lift to the breasts.

In cases such as this, Dr. Deuber may recommend a liposuction procedure to remove some of the fat cells in the breasts. The advantage of a liposuction breast reduction is that there is a shorter recovery time and less scarring than with standard breast reduction surgery because it is less invasive.

Hips and Waist

The hip and waist area can be one of the most difficult from which to lose excess fat. Unfortunately, problems such as love handles tend to leave the torso looking undefined, adding to an overall rounder look.

Liposuction of the hips and waist can provide a dramatic improvement in the overall shape of the body. Providing more definition to the waist and hips creates a classic hourglass shape.

Inner and Outer Thighs

The inner and outer thighs can be particularly troublesome areas for women because excess fat in these areas can be due to genetics, making it more difficult to tone these areas.

Dr. Deuber can liposuction the inner and outer thighs to improve the overall aesthetics of the thighs, and the contours of the entire body.

Liposuction can be an excellent option to more invasive surgical options or to put the finishing touch on the results from dramatic weight loss efforts. Dr. Deuber is happy to help you determine if liposuction is the right choice for you.
