Liposuction can help men remove excess fat from Trouble Areas
What is Liposuction?
There are many factors that contribute to a person’s weight gain, including lack of proper diet and exercise, genetics, and lifestyle. In many cases, some weight gain can be controlled with proper diet and exercise. However, for a significant part of the population, no amount of dieting or exercise will be able to remove excess fatty deposits in the typical ‘trouble’ areas.
Liposuction targets specific areas of the body by removing excess body fat, leaving the treated areas smoother, suppler and in proportion to the rest of your body.
Liposuction can help men remove excess fat from Trouble Areas including:
- Stomach / waist
- Upper arms
- Back / flanks
- Hips and buttocks
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Chest area
What to Expect with a Liposuction Procedure?
Liposuction is a very popular cosmetic procedure because it can produce very dramatic results with very little scarring. In fact, most incisions from liposuction are so small that once they fade with time, most scars are so inconspicuous that they are virtually unnoticeable.
Depending on your individual circumstances, your doctor will suggest either intravenous or general anesthesia.
Once the incision is made, a sterile saline solution is injected into the fatty deposit to loosen the fat and prepare it for abstraction. Then the fat is sucked out of the body with a surgical vacuum in a methodical back and forth motion, through a thin tube called a cannula.
Although you will notice immediate results, your tissues will continue to recover even further as swelling subsides and bruises fade, and you will find that your results will continue to unfold over time.
When should Men consider Liposuction?
Liposuction is not intended for those who are looking to loose massive amounts of weight, but when liposuction is performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as the abdominoplasty, or ‘Tummy Tuck’, the combination can be very effective.
It is important to understand what liposuction can do and what it cannot do. Unrealistic expectations of the liposuction procedure can be disappointing and frustrating. Liposuction is not a treatment to remove sagging skin or cellulite and it is not an alternative to healthy diet and exercise.
Liposuction may be a good option for you if:
- You are frustrated by your attempts at losing fat through diet and exercise
- You Maintain good physical health and reasonable weight
- You have realistic expectations
- You do not smoke
In order to create the best possible results from your liposuction surgery, it is important that your surgeon consult with you to discuss your desires and expectations, as well as how liposuction surgery will impact your health, lifestyle, and general well-being.
