You may have distinct areas or a general area where you are unhappy with the contour. These concerns may affect the type of clothing you wear, intimacy, or self esteem. For women common areas are the flanks under the bra straps, lower abdomen, hips, inner and outer thighs, lower back and occasionally the inner knee and ankle. Men often desire correction of the chest, lower abdomen, and flanks. Both men and women may benefit from a large volume liposuction of the abdomen.
