Liposuction has become a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure over the years, and while many think of plastic surgery as something for women, more and more men are getting procedures like liposuction every year to ensure they look and feel their best.
At Dr. Andrews Plastic Surgery, we customize the liposuction procedure to ensure it gives men the exact results they’re looking for.
Men often have different goals for liposuction than women. Instead of seeking a slimmer figure, men are often looking for a leaner body with more muscle definition and a more masculine look.
Men also often want unwanted stubborn fat removed from their chest, abdomen, flanks or love handles, neck, and jawline. No matter how fit you are, there can still be pockets of fat that just won’t seem to go away. Liposuction for men can be a quick and effective way to finally get rid of that fat.
While many men are looking to get rid of unwanted fat with liposuction, not all of them are good candidates for the procedure. Some of the qualifications that make someone an ideal candidate for liposuction for men include:
- Men with unwanted fat that hasn’t responded to diet and exercise
- Men with realistic expectations
- Men in generally good health who have no medical conditions that may interfere
- Adults who are near their ideal weight and have elastic skin
The liposuction procedure will begin with the administration of anesthesia to ensure you’re completely comfortable throughout the surgery.
Dr. Andrews will then make an incision in an inconspicuous place near or in the treatment area. Then, he will insert a thin hollow tube (cannula) into the incision and loosen the fat. The loosened fat is then suctioned out with a vacuum.
The incision(s) will be closed with sutures, and you’ll be taken to the recovery room.
After the liposuction procedure, dressings and bandages will be applied to the treatment area, and you’ll be given a compression garment to wear to support the body and minimize the swelling and bruising. Dr. Andrews will also provide you with specific instructions on how to take care of your incisions, activities to avoid, and when to schedule a follow-up appointment. You’ll want to avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol, and blood thinner medication.
You may see some results immediately, but because there will be at least some swelling, the results will be hidden for a while. You likely won’t see the final results for a few months.
If you maintain a healthy lifestyle and fitness routine, the fatty tissue should not come back.
