Most people struggle with unwanted fat at some point in their lives. Naturally, common problem areas include the stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks, but these are not the only places fat can accumulate.

Factors including genetics, exercise regimen (or lack thereof), and diet influence fat accumulation,. Luckily, SmartLipo and tumescent liposuction procedures can help resolve a wide range of problem areas and tighten skin.

Let’s take a look at some of the less common problem areas that can also be improved with liposuction:


Insecurity about the knees is often a problem for women in the summer, when sundresses, shorts, and swimsuits are the style. Tackling Unusual Problem Areas With SmartLipoSometimes, knee liposuction is not possible because of the amount of muscle tissue, but for most liposuction patients, it is a great way to slim and sculpt the knees into better balance with the legs.


Ankles are another problem area that fall into the category of add-on procedures. Ankle liposuction can make a huge difference in confidence when wearing sandals with dresses, skirts, or shorts.


Chin and neck liposuction is a great combination for getting rid of the dreaded double chin, which can make the face appear rounder and fuller than it is. SmartLipo is especially effective in this area due to the laser’s skin-tightening effect. You get slimming and lift!

Male Breasts

Male breast enlargement due to gyneomcastia can be a huge source of embarrassment, whether they are a side effect of obesity or caused by a hormonal issue. Liposuction, often combined with surgical gland removal, can greatly improve the appearance of the male chest permanently.

Patients who require gland removal need to be especially careful when selecting a surgeon, as very few surgeons specialize in male breast reduction. You’ll be pleased to know that our surgeons at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery of New York are some of the few who do.

Improving Problem Areas with SmartLipo

If you’re worried about smaller problem areas, SmartLipo could be a great option for you. The number of areas treated does not matter so much as the amount of fat removed, and if you’re thinking about tummy or thigh treatments, having a smaller area treated at the same time is very cost-effective.
