Can Liposuction Target Specific Problem Areas of the Body?

By: Dr. Dimara Vega


Many people turn to body contouring treatments like liposuction when traditional diet and exercise fail to produce results. But can liposuction target specific problem areas? It can. Dr. Dimara Vega can remove excess fat from the abdomen, "love handles," hips, thighs, arms, and buttocks.

Below, we'll explore the details of VASER® liposuction and how each area can benefit from this state-of-the-art procedure. Call BeyondBela Aesthetics & Wellness in Brandon, FL to begin your consultation.


Crunches and planks may not always work to slim down your midsection. Instead of feeling self-conscious about your tummy, consider VASER liposuction. This technique involves inserting a thin cannula through a small incision. The cannula emits ultrasonic energy that liquefies the fat cells so they're easier to remove. Your stomach can then appear flatter and more toned as a result.

Love handles

The area above the hips, known as "love handles," can be a stubborn spot for unwanted fat. It can make wearing form-fitted clothing like jeans uncomfortable. The good news is that VASER liposuction can selectively remove fat from the love handles to give you a smoother, slimmer silhouette. There's no need to be self-conscious about your waist any longer.


Women tend to store unwanted fat in their hips, and it can be frustrating when standard methods of weight loss don't seem to touch this area. VASER liposuction is a perfect solution for targeting excess fat in the hips. Now, you can achieve an hourglass figure and a more defined waistline. Our Brandon, FL patients enjoy showing off their curves after undergoing this body contouring procedure.


Too much fat in the thighs can cause discomfort when walking or exercising. It can also make wearing shorts or swimsuits intimidating. With VASER liposuction, you can reduce the size of your thighs and enjoy contoured and shapely legs. During a consultation, Dr. Vega will discuss your goals and determine the best possible technique for your unique body type. VASER technology allows for precise and gentle removal of fat.


Flabby arms or "bat wings" make it difficult to feel confident in sleeveless tops. VASER liposuction removes excess fat from the upper arms to create a toned appearance. Whether you want to show off your arms at the beach or feel more comfortable in short-sleeved shirts, this procedure can help you achieve your desired look.


The buttocks can appear disproportionate if there's too much fat or not enough volume. VASER liposuction can sculpt the area and create a balanced appearance. For those who desire rounder or fuller buttocks, a fat transfer can be performed in conjunction with VASER liposuction to enhance the shape and size of the buttocks. Dr. Vega will work with you to help you achieve your desired aesthetic.
