Liposuction for Men

For men who are in reasonably good shape, but who have one or several stubborn areas of fat that have not responded to traditional weight loss methods, liposuction is a great option. The procedure has become increasingly popular among both women and men, since it can safely and effectively improve the appearance of excess fat.

Although liposuction is most often considered to be a procedure used by females, and is the sixth most popular procedure among women. However, men are catching up in taking advantage of the slimming, sleek results that the procedure has to offer, with the number of men undergoing liposuction rising by 28 percent in the last year alone.

During the liposuction procedure, fat is carefully removed from targeted, specific areas so that the final results look natural, and as even and in proportion to the patient’s figure as possible. There are several technique options for the liposuction procedure, and the techniques used vary depending on which area is being addressed.

Whether you are aiming to remove fat from and improve the appearance of your arms, legs or torso, liposuction can sculpt and slim many parts of the body. Liposuction can remove fatty tissue from the face, cheeks, chin and neck, as well as the abdomen, chest, back, hips and buttocks.

Gynecomastia, a condition that causes the enlargement of male breast tissue, can be caused by several factors, including inherited physical characteristics, a hormonal imbalance or certain medication. Gynecomastia is a common condition that can be treated and corrected through a form of breast reduction surgery that incorporates liposuction.

Liposuction can also drastically improve the look of the arms and upper arms. The procedure can completely “make over” the leg area, defining and sculpting the thighs, knees, calves and/or ankles.

The best candidates for liposuction are men and women who are overall healthy and in relatively good health, but who have been unsuccessful in removing stubborn, unresponsive localized areas of fat through natural weight loss methods. A consultation with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon is the first step to determining which liposuction procedure and technique will best help to achieve your desired results.
