If I had a dime for every time I heard someone mention needing liposuction for their love handles, I’d be a wealthy woman. In the past few decades, liposuction has become such a household name that most of us know exactly what part of our body we’d like to refine with this body contouring procedure. Whether it’s banishing fat from the belly or telling those saddlebags to hit the road, lipo has a reputation for fine-tuning our most common problem spots. Therefore, you may be surprised to learn that liposuction can also work wonders in some rather odd target areas.
The Mons Pubis
The mons pubis describes the fatty area in the pubic region, just above the genitals. Many people are frustrated to find that fat likes to gather here, and liposuction can greatly improve the appearance of this target area for a smoother, leaner contour.
Some men even find that a more refined mons pubis helps to enhance the appearance of their, ahem, little guy.
When the calves don’t taper demurely into well-defined ankles, you have “cankles.” A curse of genetics, liposuction can target the area between the calf and the ankle to create more slender curves. Yet another reason to love lipo!
The Bra Bulge
Some women find that unwanted fat spills over from the bra line, causing unsightly lumps. Liposuction can target this problem area for smoother, more flattering contours.
Why the long face? Chances are, you’re not sad, you’re just another unwitting victim of gravity or genetics. As we age, the body’s collagen and elastin break down, causing a double chin or jowls to form. Liposuction can zap excess fat for better jaw line definition, although in some cases, a face lift may be more appropriate.
