Lipocontouring (Liposuction + Liposculpting)
For the 99.9% of us who aren’t blessed with a steady 3% body fat, chasing and keeping the lean, toned look requires long steady hours at the gym and meticulous control of your diet. Even for the most dedicated, it somehow seems genetics and eventually, age makes us unable to maintain a trim, well-defined appearance. Inevitably, fat accumulates, particularly in the midsection and chest, which can be increasingly resistant to diet and exercise. At some point, the only way to eliminate the fatty build up in these areas is to physically remove the fat cells.
Treatment planning begins with an in-depth consultation with Dr. Beck to evaluate individual fitness level, body type, and goals. In line with the patient’s goals, Dr. Beck maps out areas of the body for a two-step process: 1) excess fat removal and 2) etching to highlight the surrounding contours and muscle edges. This process gets rid of unwanted fat and creates sharp definition to provide a distinctly trim, masculine look.
Most procedures take between 1-3 hours and are done on an outpatient basis. While focused procedures can be done under local anesthetic, most true contouring procedures cover multiple areas and require mild general anesthesia to allow efficiency and patient comfort. The advanced techniques and equipment used by Dr. Beck are designed to reduce bruising and swelling, plus promote skin tightening for a final result far superior to traditional methods of fat removal.
Although you should refrain from strenuous workouts for 2 to 4 weeks, recovery is quick with most men returning to normal activities within 2 days. Once the initial swelling subsides, you can expect immediately visible results, with full benefits in 3 to 6 months.
If you’ve been frustrated in achieving the definition you’re after, male lipocontouring can have you looking toned and more athletic. It’s the perfect way to address those problem areas full of stubborn fat or as the final touch for that most difficult to lose last bit of excess, creating a confident, lean and muscular look.
