Liposuction in Women

Women are more prone to obesity and persistent localized fat deposits than men. When these fat lumps refuse to disappear despite the best efforts at exercise and diet, liposuction procedure can help remove them and get the body shape you desire. Due to its high effectiveness, women are the main consumers of liposuction surgery.

Causes of Stubborn Fat Deposit in Women

  • Pregnancy
  • Aging
  • Genetics

Body Areas and Fat Gain

The following body areas acquire fat readily and are, therefore, the most preferred sites (in this order) for surgical liposuction in women:

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs, especially lateral (saddle bags)
  • Back (especially axillary)
  • Female flanks or love handles
  • Buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Chin
  • Breasts

Of these, liposculpture of flanks, arms, and abdomen provide the best results.

Fat Structure in Women

The fat composition and the lipid layers in a female body are less fibrous, less dense, softer, and therefore simpler to remove than that in a male body.

Since human female skin is soft and its beauty is important, subtle procedures are preferred for women. These procedures are minimally invasive, have precision target features for the best possible contouring, are gentle, have least side effects (pain, bruising, & scarring) and leave the skin as firm and smooth as possible. Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) and laser liposuction are a couple of such procedures common for female liposuction.

Cost of Liposuction in Women

The cost of liposuction for females is generally lower than that for men; because fat in women is easier to remove. The smaller frame of women is also a factor of lower cost.
