Liposuction for Men
Although most liposuction patients are females, more men are becoming aware of the benefits of this procedure. Over the years, cosmetic surgery for men, particularly liposuction, has increased significantly in popularity. Liposuction for men is not a replacement for diet and exercise, but it can be an effective way to improve men’s physiques with minimal scarring and fairly low rates of complications.
The most common liposuction areas for men are the flanks (love handles), the lower abdomen, chest (breast area) and the neck. The skin of the flanks is generally thick and elastic, and it will shrink down nicely for most men after the removal of fat. The abdomen can get great results as well, but is dependent on the patient’s skin quality. Liposuction will give most men a leaner, more athletic appearance.
Liposuction recovery is usually minimal, providing the amount of fat to be removed is not excessive and the patient is in good shape. Skin elasticity is generally better in men than in women since they have not had their skin stretched by pregnancy. Recovery time is generally 2 to 3 days before normal activities can be resumed with the exception of vigorous exercising.
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 irregularities after surgery.
