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.
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.
