Liposuction for Men
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving body contours and proportion. Over the years, plastic surgery for men, particularly liposuction, has increased significantly in popularity.
For patients who are good candidates for the procedure, liposuction can be an effective way to improve men’s physiques with minimal scarring and fairly low rates of complications. For men, some of the most common areas of concern are the flanks (love handles) and abdomen. Often, male patients report that despite significant diet and exercise, these are the last areas on their bodies that shrink down. The skin of the flanks is generally thick and elastic, and it will shrink down nicely for most men after the fat is removed. Liposuction will give most men a leaner, more defined and athletic appearance.
Liposuction for men may be used to reduce localized fat deposits of the:
- Hips and buttocks
- Abdomen and waist
- Upper arms
- Inner knee
- Chest area
- Cheeks, chin and neck
- Calves and ankles
The risks of liposuction for men are essentially the same as for women and are fairly low. The most common issues tend to be bruising, swelling and mild pain after surgery. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to enjoy long-lasting results. Liposuction is also not an effective treatment for cellulite – the dimpled skin that typically appears on the thighs, hips and buttocks – or loose saggy skin.
