According to a report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction topped the charts in the last year as the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure, nudging out both breast augmentation and face/neck lifts. Here, we take a deeper dive into some of the reasons behind the skyrocketing popularity of liposuction, as well as explain liposuction options for anyone who may be considering this body contouring procedure themselves.
What Makes Liposuction So Popular?
Liposuction has always been one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures in the country, but it wasn’t until recently that it topped the charts as the single most popular procedure. Reasons for this shift are the numerous lifestyle and societal changes that occurred as a result of the pandemic.
On one hand, working from home, limited gym access and social distancing lead to weight gain for many people, which has now spurred an influx in the number of requests for body contouring treatments like liposuction.
On the other side of the spectrum, newfound free time and home workout regimens helped others achieve major fitness milestones. Now, many in this group are turning to liposuction and nonsurgical body contouring devices to fine-tune those amazing results.
Understanding Your Liposuction Options
Liposuction can be performed on nearly any area of your body, and a customized approach based on your unique needs and goals will deliver the best results. While very effective on its own, liposuction can also be combined with other body contouring procedures such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, arm or thigh lift and others to achieve even more comprehensive results.
