Men care about how they look. They’re just as bothered by pockets of fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise as are women. Liposuction can help men achieve a physique about which they can be confident and proud.
At Lansdowne Aesthetic Center, cosmetic surgeon Yaqub Baraki, MD, invites men to learn more about liposuction and how it can help them achieve a more proportional and contoured shape.
Here are four primary reasons a man might be inspired to get liposuction.
Tone the chest
A large number of men have a condition called gynecomastia, or excess fat deposits on the chest. Otherwise known as “man boobs,” gynecomastia can make you uncomfortable in shirtless situations at the pool, locker room, or bedroom.
We use laser liposuction to successfully reduce and tighten a sagging, fatty male chest. The benefit to laser liposuction is that it also tightens the surrounding skin, so your chest looks toned, taut, and – well – manly.
Slim a poochy tummy
Men tend to accumulate extra fat around the belly. Liposuction can target the subcutaneous fat around your middle to get you closer to the six-pack you work hard to achieve through workouts and diet.
Say good-bye to love handles
You aren’t so in love with flabby flanks. A man accumulates fat in the love handles because it’s a location where a lot of fat cells reside. You can diet and exercise diligently and not see much fat loss in this waist-area.
Liposuction can help you get rid of your love handles for good for a sexy, slim shape.
Achieve an overall toned physique
Liposuction is not a comprehensive weight-loss solution, but it can enhance your results once you’ve achieved a healthy size. We can sit down with you and discuss all your “problem” areas to determine where liposuction can help you find better proportions.
Liposuction effectively vacuums fat away from the chest, abdomen, and love handles as well as the buttocks, thighs, upper arms, back, inner knee, cheeks, chin, neck, calves, and ankles.
Liposuction is safe
Liposuction is safe for men of all ages, as long as they are nonsmokers and in generally good health. If a man is looking for a way to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat, liposuction is the answer.
State-of-the-art liposuction techniques also mean minimal post-procedure pain. Usually, you can control discomfort with over-the-counter pain medications and don’t even need them after a few days.
You return to work in about five to seven days post–procedure. You will need to take a little bit longer before engaging in vigorous activity. We’ll give you a comprehensive post-treatment plan that includes activity modifications.
The procedure is not sex-specific
Even though men and women tend to have different areas they want treated with liposuction, the procedure is identical. Women usually opt for liposuction that makes the area around their stomach, hips, and thighs shapely. Men, however, focus on getting a flatter chest and abdomen.
