Liposuction reduces excess fat cells in a particular treatment area. At Desert Hills Plastic Surgery Center, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hayley Brown can determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction.

Areas of Your Face
The contour of your face and neck can be sculpted with liposuction. These are the main treatment areas:
- Jaw line
- Lower face
These delicate areas can be treated quite effectively with liposuction. Double chins, fatty necks and poorly defined jaw lines can be treated with this procedure in many cases. Dr. Brown creates incisions carefully, in a way that they are well-hidden and as minimal as possible. The fat is broken up and suctioned away. The removed fat cells are gone for good.
Areas of Your Body
The body areas treatable with liposuction include:
- Inner knees
Liposuction is great for reducing fat in all those areas that society has lovingly nicknamed: bra rolls, banana rolls, muffin tops and love handles! Although it is still possible to gain weight after the procedure, the removed cells are gone permanently. Most people feel even more motivated to pursue a healthy lifestyle, fitness and a stable weight once they see their results.
Who Gets Liposuction?
Men, women, moms, dads, brides-to-be, single people, married people – liposuction demographics run the gamut. One of the most interesting points is that both men and women get liposuction. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2017 there were 218,174 women who underwent liposuction. Women did make up 89 percent of lipo patients that year. But men sought the procedure as well, with 28,180 males opting for this body-shaping technique last year. Men made up 11 percent of total liposuction procedures.
Moms interested in sculpting their contours post-baby are also often the guests interested in liposuction. After pregnancy, you may have lost weight but find that some of the fat still lingers no matter how many crunches you do. With liposuction, you can get rid of these fat cells and smooth out those bulges.
Schedule Your Consultation with Dr. Brown
The next step in the process is to find out if you are a good candidate for liposuction. To do this, Dr. Brown will discuss your goals with you and perform an examination of the intended treatment area. Once she examines the fat in that area, she will know whether liposuction is appropriate. It is most suitable for people who are already at or near their ideal weight, but have isolated, persistent fat that remains.
