While breast augmentation sat at the top of the cosmetic surgery charts for many years, liposuction once again takes that top spot for 2022, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. While the small decline in breast augmentation procedures may be due to a growing concern over implants and changing trends regarding breast size, the many benefits liposuction offers are a driving force in its rise to the top. Whether you are looking to address post-pandemic weight gain or an enhancement to another cosmetic procedure, liposuction is quickly becoming the popular go-to treatment option.
Combating the Pandemic Weight Gain
The COVID-19 pandemic left many people working from home or learning how to bake bread and other delicious treats. Unfortunately, many of these new hobbies, along with the closing of fitness centers, left many putting on a few extra pounds here and there. While liposuction is not meant to be used as a form of weight loss, it can help target and remove stubborn pockets of fat that regular exercise and healthy living are unable to address.
Provides Added Benefits for Additional Procedures
While liposuction is an effective treatment to address stubborn fat and is often used alone, part of its popularity growth is due to the fact that it is easy to add with an additional cosmetic procedure, such as a tummy tuck, in order to achieve superior results. For example, adding liposuction to a breast reduction can help address the fat bulge that often develops around the arm.
