When most people think about liposuction as a plastic surgery application, they tend to think about removing large amounts of fat from the hips and thighs (a/k/a the saddlebags) and the abdomen where stubborn fat collects. However, liposuction is a far-reaching and adaptable tool for plastic surgeons and patients. Since the procedures development in France during the late 1970’s, liposuction can help patients achieve their aesthetic goals in innovative ways. Plastic surgeons now routinely use this technique to address a double chin, fatty neck, and even facial jowls. The cannula used in liposuction vary in size, and for facial areas the cannula is very small, which reduces the amount of bruising.
