In women the most frequently areas treated by tumescent liposuction are the outer thighs followed by the abdomen. In men other than the chest, the most common area is the flank or "love handle" region. Other areas commonly treated include, the upper arms, upper and lower abdomen, lower back, hips, thighs inner and outer, sides of the knees, and lower legs. It is UNCOMMON to treat all of these areas at one time (if all areas were involved weight loss may be a better option). Usually there are only a few regions that require tumescent liposuction.
