The good news is that you were born with all the fat cells you are ever going to have. Unfortunately, the number, where they are located and how they react to your lifestyle can vary widely from person to person. Thanks to genetics and eventually age, most men have stubborn pockets of fat that are increasingly resistant to diet and exercise. Fortunately, male liposuction will reliably and permanently get rid of the unwanted fat.
Male Liposuction done right is more complex than just removing fat.
Traditional liposuction methods target removal of the deep layers of fat while maintaining the soft curves and hourglass figure preferred by female patients. In contrast, male liposuction is more complex and relies on several steps to target all layers of fat in order to create and maintain the leaner and more defined contours of the male physique.
To ensure a masculine contour, male liposuction should be performed by a plastic surgeon specializing in male procedures.
Common areas of concern for men include the neck, chest, abdomen and love handles. However, male liposuction can be performed anywhere excess fat has accumulated.
As a male specialist we understand:
- How to highlight the V-shaped trunk and more chiseled features of the male physique.
- How important it is to treat all layers of fat and follow natural muscle contouring.
- The best outcome is obtained when results are dramatic, but look natural.
- How to improve skin quality and muscle tone after the procedure to accentuate the result.
Most procedures take between 2-3 hours and are done on an outpatient basis. While focused procedures can be done under local anesthetic, most male liposuction procedures cover multiple areas and require mild general anesthesia to allow efficiency and patient comfort. The specific techniques and equipment used 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 3 to 4 weeks, recovery is quick with most men returning to normal daily activities within 3-7 days. Once the initial swelling subsides, you can expect immediately visible results, with full benefits in 4 to 6 months.
