Liposuction is an excellent technique for removing fatty tissue from areas where it may have been close to impossible for patients to get rid of it despite observing a balanced diet and exercise regime. Areas, where liposuction is most effective for fat removal, are the abdomen, hips, thighs, and knees for women, and around the waist (love handles), abdomen, and chest and breast area for men.
Fat under the chin and upper arms can be removed effectively for both women and men. When Liposuction is done on men, common sites include under the chin and around the waist. Liposuction may also be used in the reduction of enlarged male breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia.
