Like most plastic surgery procedures, people tend to think of how they can benefit the body of women but not how they could benefit a masculine physique. Men can receive similar benefits to women with liposuction, but with the male form in mind. Keep reading to learn more about common male cosmetic concerns that can be helped by liposuction.
SmartLipo for Men
Along with traditional liposuction, men can choose to have SmartLipo, the latest in liposuction technology to remove their stubborn fat. Instead of a cannula being used to break up fat, a noninvasive laser targets fat cells. The procedure can be used in the same ways that liposuction can, but offers many benefits such as less invasion, less downtime, less discomfort and even the additional benefit of skin tightening.
For men who have large breasts classified as gynecomastia or just have stubborn excess fat collecting on the chest, liposuction can be used to remove the excess fat for a more masculine look. For best results, Dr. Erella may choose to use SmartLipo™ in order to sculpt around the pectoral muscles for a toned look. By using SmartLipo men can have a quicker recovery with smaller incisions that result in little to no scarring.
A trouble area for many men is the flanks and love handles. This area tends to get in the way of pants fitting properly and can be a source of frustration when trying to slim down. Liposuction can take away some of the bulk in this area for a more contoured look if a balanced diet and regular exercise haven’t worked. The flanks or love handles is a good area for regular liposuction or SmartLipo.
The abdomen, midsection or belly is probably the most common ‘problem’ areas whether you’re a man or woman. For men who have come a long way in the gym and have maintained a healthy diet but still have stubborn belly fat, liposuction may be the answer. Liposuction allows for the most permanent solution as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
