One of the reasons people choose to have plastic surgery done on their body is to make their clothes look and fit better. There are several locations on your body that can have a dramatic impact on how your clothes fit or that can make you feel confident in certain clothes.
Even if you do not have much excess weight, sometimes wearing bras with a thinner band can give you the appearance of rolls on your back. Many women feel like the bras with a thinner band are often cuter and try to avoid thicker bands. Liposuction in this area can reduce the appearance of back rolls. For people who have lost a significant amount of weight, they may need a bra line back lift before a surgeon will consider whether liposuction will be helpful. With the back lift, excess skin is removed from the upper back and the incision is concealed within the bra line. A better bra line can also allow you to wear backless tops and dresses and feel confident in them.
Having excess abdominal fat and/or loose skin on the abdominal area will drastically affect how your clothes fit and which clothes are flattering on your figure. People with more fat or loose skin in the lower abdomen can benefit from liposuction, a panniculectomy, or an abdominoplasty, depending on the extent of problems. One frustration with lower-abdomen fat is that it increases your hip measurement, which can lead to awkwardly fitting pants if you have a smaller waist. More fat in the upper abdomen can be frustrating because you may have more of an apple-shape and only feel comfortable wearing clothes that are loose in this area. Finding high-waisted pants that fit over this part of the abdomen may be the only flattering and comfortable option. Liposuction or a fleur-de-lis abdominoplasty will be more appropriate for targeting this area.
Having excess fat on the outer thighs can be improved with the use of liposuction. Not only will liposuction reduce the size of your thighs, especially if you feel they are out of proportion with the rest of your body, but the procedure can also make your thighs appear smoother. Fat pockets or lumpy thighs can make you feel uncomfortable in pants made with thin fabric or form-fitting skirts and dresses. If the problem is the inside of your thighs, excess fat can be removed with liposuction, or if you also have loose skin, a thigh lift might be a better option. One frustration for some people is their inner thighs rub together, which prevents them from wearing skirts and dresses or exercising.
