Plastic surgery is no longer just for women. Men deserve to look their best, and the body sculpting effects of liposuction are a perfect way to fine-tune the body by removing fat from problem areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. Men tend to accumulate subcutaneous fat in the abdomen, chest, flanks (love handles), and under the chin, making these some of most common areas for male liposuction.
Liposuction helps to fix the uneven distribution of fat, removes stubborn fat pockets, and gives a more athletic appearance to the body, which can provide a rapid improvement in self-image and confidence. Since men tend to have both internal fat and external, or subcutaneous, fat pockets, it is important for them to see a board-certified plastic surgeon. Only the external fat can be removed by liposuction, and only trained surgeons can tell the difference.
If the patient also suffers from male breast enlargement (gynecomastia), this can usually be addressed during the same procedure. Gynecomastia is a common condition that I have extensive experience in treating.
Liposuction is a great procedure for men looking to achieve a healthier, more energetic look. It is now the most highly requested plastic surgery procedure by men, and provides results in a very short period of time.
