Liposuction is not just for the stomach and abdominal area. You are able to get liposuction on many areas of your body including your hips, neck, butt, arms, calves, face or back. You also have the option of getting liposuction done on more than one area at the same time. For example, you could get liposuction on your stomach, back, and arms in the same day.

More men have started to opt into getting liposuction done also. The most common area for men is the chest area to reduce breast size or to remove lipomas (fatty areas), however, please note than liposuction is not an alternative to a healthy diet and exercise plan. Liposuction only helps to remove the areas of fat that have not responded to a traditional weight-loss method.

Anywhere from four to six liters of pure fat is able to be removed in each session. The most common areas for women to get liposuction are in the abdomen, chin, hips and thighs.
