No matter how much you work out and eat healthy, you may be left with a few stubborn pockets of fat around the midsection, hips, thighs, and arms. If those extra bulges and inches are preventing you from feeling confident and wearing the clothes you like, talk to Dr. Khattab about liposuction in Torrance, CA. Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty, continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for men and women in the United States. It is designed for body contouring and sculpting — not weight loss — and can be very effective for getting rid of those stubborn pockets of fat permanently.

Signs That It’s Time for Liposuction

We always recommend patients take care of their body by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. However, we understand that sometimes eating right and exercising diligently aren’t enough to reshape and contour the body. Even when you are at a healthy weight, you may be genetically predisposed to accumulating pockets of fat around the hips, thighs, stomach, knees, and other areas of the body. Undergoing liposuction can restore your body’s proportions and create a slim and sexy silhouette.

Some of the signs it’s time for liposuction include:

  • Having stubborn fat around the flanks (love handles) that creates a muffin top
  • Extra bulges around the upper back that show through form-fitting clothes
  • Pockets of fat on the outer thighs that are resistant to exercise (saddlebags)
  • Extra fat under the upper arms (bat wings)
  • Excess fat around the abdomen, preventing you from seeing six-pack abs
  • Extra fat around the jaw that is adding years to your appearance

Liposuction Can Enhance Your Appearance

Many men and women who undergo a body contouring procedure like liposuction in Torrance, CA simply enjoy a better quality of life. They feel more confident about their appearance and can wear more styles of clothing without feeling self-conscious. Undergoing a cosmetic procedure can even prompt you to take better care of your body by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you do gain weight after your procedure, you won’t gain it back in the treated areas because the fat cells have been removed permanently. However, you will enjoy lasting results as long as you maintain or even lose weight.
