What Is Male Liposuction?
As we age, the body’s ability to burn and discard fatty tissue diminishes. Liposuction for men is a simple procedure that removes extra fat from the body, allowing a man’s body to take on a more sculpted, masculine appearance. Specific areas can benefit from liposuction including the chin, neck, upper arms, abdomen, hips, thighs, and knees. Liposuction may also be used to reduce male breasts to treat gynecomastia.
Benefits of Male Liposuction
There are several benefits after liposuction treatment. The treatment removes excess and stubborn fat deposits that remain in patients who follow a healthy eating and exercise regimen. Your overall body fat percentage is decreased. Areas without muscle definition are improved. Patients report higher self-confidence and subtle improvements in their appearance following male liposuction. Male liposuction treatments often motivate patients to maintain a healthy, more active lifestyle.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Male Liposuction?
The ideal candidates are men who are in general good health and suffer from excess fat. Normal-weight people with high skin elasticity and areas of excess fat should find out if liposuction is the right treatment. Older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may be eligible for liposuction treatment. However, the results may not be the same as a younger patient with tighter skin elasticity. Make sure you discuss your expectations with the doctor prior to any treatment so you can speak openly with the doctor about the right course of treatment for you.
What Do I Need To Do Before Liposuction?
Dr. Zamora will give you any pre-treatment instructions prior to your appointment, as well as devise a unique plan to remove areas of unwanted fat. You may need to refrain from taking certain medications or supplements as well as spending excess time in the sun. If you develop an infection, particularly of the skin, your procedure may need to be rescheduled.
What Should I Expect On The Day Of My Male Liposuction Treatment?
Dr. Zamora will devise a custom plan for you depending on the areas requiring treatment. Most patients undergo general anesthesia for liposuction treatment. A small incision is made in the impacted area, and a tiny tube is inserted. The fat deposits are broken up and suctioned out. Any incisions required will be small and specifically placed for a minimal appearance.
How Long Does It Take To Perform Liposuction?
The treatment time will vary depending on the type of liposuction used and the areas of the body that are involved. It may take several hours if multiple sites are treated at the same time.
What To Expect After A Male Liposuction Treatment?
Plan to bring someone with you who can drive you home after your treatment. You may also want to take a day or two off from work so your body can rest in a stress-free environment. You will be able to walk and go home immediately after your treatment. It may be several days or weeks before you can begin strenuous activities. Dr. Zamora will provide comprehensive instructions after your procedure.
When Will I See The Results?
The results will be evident right away, with additional improvement over the following weeks. Your body will need time to adjust to its new shape. Some patients may wear compression clothes to help retain the different contours in the first few weeks. These can easily be hidden under clothes.
How Long Will The Results Of A Male Liposuction Treatment Last?
The results could last for several years after treatment. A healthy diet and exercise regimen will help the body maintain its new appearance.
