What Is Liposuction For Men?
Liposuction, one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for men, is a surgical method of removing areas of excess fat. This technique is used to target stubborn areas of fat that don’t seem to respond well to diet or exercise. During this treatment, a small metal tube is used to gently suction the targeted fatty tissue out of the body, leaving behind sculpted and toned-looking contours.
What are the Benefits of Liposuction For Men?
Very often, men find they have difficulty removing excess fat from particular areas of the body, such as the flanks, chest or around the abdomen. Because these areas are usually just deposits of fat sitting directly underneath the skin, removing them via the liposuction procedure can lead to highly effective results. By eliminating the unwanted fat from the targeted areas, the liposuction procedure can provide you with a more defined, athletic-looking body shape.
Is Liposuction Right For Me?
This treatment is intended for men who are at or near a healthy weight, but still have isolated pockets of excess fat. It is important to remember that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. At most, five pounds of fat will be removed. Instead, this is a way to achieve smoother and more masculine-looking contours. Liposuction is a popular way for men to sculpt their abs, thighs or buttocks. Ideal candidates are in good overall health, are less than 30 pounds overweight and have a small number of body areas they’d like to focus on sculpting, rather than fat that is evenly distributed throughout their whole body.
How Involved Is The Liposuction Procedure?
Liposuction treatments performed on men can take anywhere from one to two hours, depending on their complexity. This procedure is usually done under general anesthesia, but smaller collections can be done under local anesthesia. A saline (salt water) solution is injected into the area to be suctioned. This solution contains epinephrine to decrease bleeding and lidocaine if being done under local anesthesia. Gentle suction is used to remove the fat through the cannula. During this process, the cannula is moved back and forth underneath the skin, sculpting the remaining natural tissues into a smooth, toned-looking contour.
How Long Is The Recovery After Liposuction?
Some men are back to work in just two or three days, while others take one to two weeks off for recovery. In general, larger volumes of fat or larger body areas require a longer recovery period. Commonly reported side effects include tenderness, swelling, bruising, and redness. You may be asked to wear a compression garment over the treated body part to reduce swelling and help the area heal faster.
How Much Does Liposuction Cost?
The exact cost of liposuction is dependent on the body area being treated, the volume of fat being removed and the specific surgical technique used by Dr. Schwartz. Financing is available.
