How Liposuction Can Bring Out the Best in 3 Different Body Shapes

shutterstock_30024931Liposuction can be a wonderful option for improving the contours of the body and targeting stubborn fat deposits that remain despite your best diet and exercise efforts. By removing fat and sculpting new curves and angles, liposuction can dramatically improve the body’s proportions and overall appearance no matter what natural body shape you have.

1. Hourglass Figure

Liposuction can be an ideal way to accentuate an hourglass figure. If you’re storing excess fat around your stomach that detracts from your shape, liposuction can remove fat from around the middle part of the waist, to enhance the curves above and below the waist for more beautiful proportions.

2. Pear-Shaped Body

Pear-shaped people are generally bottom-heavy but slim in the upper part of the body. They often feel their proportions are imbalanced and want to reduce the amount of fat below the waist in order to complement their slimmer upper body. Liposuction can be an ideal solution for slimming the hips and thighs and creating more balance in the overall silhouette.

3. Apple-Like Proportions

Just as the name implies, an apple body shape is characterized by a top-heavy appearance with relatively thin legs. Individuals who have experienced dramatic weight loss can sometimes have an apple-shaped body due to fat stores that remain around the midsection and in the arms. By slimming the abdomen, flanks, upper back and arms, liposuction can improve the appearance of the upper body, creating more symmetry in the body’s proportions.

Apple-shaped individuals who’ve lost a significant amount of weight can often benefit from the combination of a tummy tuck and liposuction. The combined procedures can help improve the stomach’s appearance as well as enhancing the overall contours of the body.
