So you’re interested in getting a Lipo procedure? You, like many other people, may be trying to get rid of pesky, stubborn fat that seems to stick around no matter how hard you diet and exercise. Fortunately, Lipo is the solution to that problem area you’ve had for so long.
Although you feel like Lipo is a good choice for you and your body, you probably still have a lot of unanswered questions about the procedure, the recovery, and more.
We love when our patients seek knowledge on procedures they’re looking to undergo. Especially when it’s a procedure that alters the exterior of your body, we believe that the more diligently you research, the better!
There are hundreds of questions you could ask about the Lipo procedure, but some of the most common questions revolve around the most popular areas for Lipo, and how much the procedure costs for different body areas.
DreamBody has successfully executed countless Lipo procedures on any number of areas of the body. However, we have narrowed down our top 5 areas that people seek Lipo for:
2. Waist line (love handles)
4. Upper arms
Even though these are the most popular for Lipo, don’t feel that this list limits your ability to get this procedure on whatever area you need! We are still able to slim down areas such as your chin, your calves, and your bum!
The dreaded belly fat….it’s an area that almost every person has struggled with at one point or another. Fat likes to creep its way into that area and takes a lot of convincing before it decides to get out for good!
The belly area is one of the most difficult places to lose fat from. You can diet and exercise, but unfortunately building muscle and burning fat in that region can be much harder than you initially anticipated.
Even some of the most fit people struggle with belly fat. Especially in the lower abdomen, people really struggle with eliminating that small pocket of flab and often have to resort to Lipo to get rid of it for good!
Many people feel ashamed of having to get Lipo, and a lot of people avoid the process entirely because they feel like they should be embarrassed. Despite this, over 200,000 people received Lipo procedures last year, making it one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the U.S.
So fear not when seeking Lipo—you are in good company with some of the most in shape people out there!
2. Waist line
Love handles are a girl’s worst enemy. Even though some men can suffer from having fat collect in this area as well, females are all too familiar with having a muffin top in this region.
Just like belly fat, losing fat from your waist can be extremely tricky as well. Aside from working out your oblique area, it is difficult to target that specific region to burn fat and lose muscle.
It isn’t difficult to see why so many people get Lipo on this area of their body. Even slim people have extra fat collect around their waist line and are eager to get rid of it.
The thigh region can be one of the trickiest to lose weight from for both men and women. With lots of diet and exercise, you can generally slim down this area, but it is one of the fattiest regions on your body and can remain flabby—even if you are a workout warrior.
Throughout most of our lives, people complain about not liking the way that their thighs feel or look, and often come in for Lipo in order to feel more confident!
4. Upper Arms
This area of the body is another one that women really struggle with. As women age, our underarm area loses its elasticity and becomes more and more flabby. Diet and exercise can definitely help eliminate a large portion of fat from this area. But sometimes people need that final push that Lipo can give to this part of your body.
Your neckline is one of the most difficult areas to cover up. Unless you are wearing turtlenecks on a regular basis, this part of your body will almost always be exposed.
Since it is front and center and almost always visible, many people seek Lipo for this area. Again, with aging, your skin tends to lose its elasticity and any weight gain is dramatically more visible than it was when you were younger.
Exercise can’t help much with this region, which leaves Lipo as your best bet to get rid of the excess fat for good!
Different Costs for Different Areas
Before people commit to a Liposuction procedure, they often want to know what it will cost them. Even though it is difficult to give a hard and fast answer without an in-person consultation, there are some easy ways to get a general idea of how much it will cost.
Just like a home renovation, for a lip procedure the larger the area is that you want to take care of, the more expensive it will be. The abdomen area will cost more than your chin and your thighs will cost more than your neckline.
Another variable that will determine the cost of your Lipo will be your BMI, or body mass index. The higher your BMI is, the more fat will need to be removed. Last but not least, some areas of your body are just generally more difficult to perform surgery on, and therefore will cost more money.
In order to get an exact feel for how much your Lipo will cost, come in for a consultation! We’ll give you all the specifics for this weight loss method and have you feeling more comfortable and confident about this decision than ever before!
