Miami, Florida ranks among the top cities for the amount of plastic surgery procedures performed, behind only Beverly Hills and San Francisco. Although they’re on different sides of the country, it’s not odd that both Florida and California are home to the cities with the highest number of plastic surgeries… both locations boast celebrity homes, great nightlife and entertainment, beautiful beaches and more. Keeping up with appearances is simply a lifestyle choice, but which plastic surgery procedures are Floridians flocking to maintain their flawless features?
You might think that Brazilian butt lifts and lip injections that mirror the Kardashian and Jenner sisters’ appearances are high-ranking but here plastic surgery patients are looking to subtract, not add, and liposuction is the most searched plastic surgery procedure in Florida.
Warmer weather year-round and access to beaches are definitely one reason why liposuction tops the charts in Floridian’s plastic surgery research but when it comes to liposuction, there is a lot more than meets the eye and plenty of reasons to consider opting for this procedure that has been around for more than 30 years.
First, liposuction is the perfect solution if you’re looking for ways to remove stubborn belly fat but it’s not only for troublesome tummies! Liposuction can also remove deposits of excess fat from specific areas of your upper or lower body, face or neck.
In addition to your belly, consider streamlining your flanks or love handles, back, and – on some men who struggle with gynecomastia – chest. Liposuction can also be used to assist in an arm lift, or, if your trouble areas are on the lower body, it can be used to define your inner and outer thighs, buttocks, and even calves and ankles!
Removing and sculpting fat around your chin and neck area is also a fantastic way to restore your youth if you’re feeling self-conscious but aren’t ready for a face or neck lift at this time.
Additionally, Floridians may be researching liposuction because it’s efficient and cost-effective! While liposuction is never recommended as an alternative to healthy diet and exercise, when done together, it only helps to amplify your results with less time commitment. On average, liposuction can cost between $4,500 and $7,500. Liposuction not only guarantees results but success motivates success so you are more likely to continue working harder to maintain your progress after healing from your plastic surgery procedure.
Remember, when it comes to liposuction, just removing excess fatty deposits does not guarantee the ideal appearance you may be looking for. The judgement and experience of your plastic surgeon is crucial so be sure to schedule a free liposuction consultation with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Paul Wigoda today, or, if you’re interested in learning more about liposuction, be sure to watch this video where Dr. Wigoda discusses various types of liposuction and the different techniques and technology that are available today.
