Like many plastic surgery procedures, liposuction is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Some people choose the surgery to fine-tune an already athletic figure. Others want to get rid of a stubborn “pooch” they’ve battled all their lives, and still others turn to liposuction to sculpt away excess fat they’ve accumulated throughout the aging process. As you’ll see in our patients’ liposuction before and after photos, the results look different for everyone because the procedure is different for everyone. It’s all about refining your unique shape and putting your best body in the spotlight—whatever that looks like for you.
In this blog post, I’m showcasing a few of my favorite patient transformations that demonstrate how liposuction results look on people of various body types. If you’re curious about what the surgery can do for you, read on to envision the possibilities.
A Tummy Transformation
This 32-year-old individual faced a dilemma many of us are familiar with: They did their best to stay in shape but struggled to slim down a stubborn abdominal area.
When you’re genetically predisposed to carry fat in a certain area, it can seem difficult or impossible to tone it up, even with the best diet and exercise efforts. That’s where liposuction shines. (Learn more about what makes an ideal liposuction candidate in this blog post.)
At 8 months post-op, you can see the dramatic difference the surgery made in this person’s silhouette, sculpting a flatter, shapelier midsection.
Sculpting the Jawline
This 32-year-old woman came in looking to sharpen her jawline definition by slimming her neck and reducing her submental fullness, also known as a “double chin.” Pictured a year after her neck liposuction procedure, her neck now looks longer and slimmer, and she has better definition between her neck and jawline.
Enhancing Muscle Definition
This 43-year-old man wanted to take his muscle definition to a new level by removing fat from his abdomen and flanks. Sculpting away this overlying fat let his hard-earned work take the spotlight, revealing an even more toned and V-shaped torso.
Tightening Up a “Turkey Neck”
This 58-year-old woman was bothered by a form of submental fullness common with age, sometimes called a “turkey neck.” Her 3-month post-op photos showcase a slimmer neck, better jawline definition, and a younger look overall.
While this woman achieved great results with liposuction alone, many people with similar concerns benefit from skin tightening via a facelift or neck lift to address skin laxity common with a “turkey neck.”
Fine-Tuning the Outer Thighs
This case is a great example of how liposuction can benefit people who struggle to tone one specific problem area. This 32-year-old woman was happy with her figure but wanted to reduce the pockets of fat on her outer thighs, sometimes called “saddle bags.” As you can see in her photos taken a year and 3 months post-op, this subtle sculpting gives her silhouette a smoother and more streamlined appearance overall.
