Liposuction for Men
Have you spent months in failed and frustrating attempts to re-sculpt your body through diet and exercise? Sometimes these efforts are not enough. As hard to admit as it might be, you can’t expect the metabolism that you had as a teenager to follow you into adulthood and beyond.
There is an additional option for men who are seeking a more sleek and defined physique. Liposuction can be an effective way to achieve the physique you have been working to achieve.
Not a Substitute for a Healthy Lifestyle
If you have the idea that choosing to receive liposuction is a form of weakness or a “cop out” in regard to your need to take care of yourself, you are mistaken.
You can’t expect to enjoy the full benefits of this procedure unless you are not willing to make a long-term commitment to exercise and a healthy diet. You’re going to have to keep working on your health, but the difference is that you won’t be grinding away just trying to get somewhere near your goals.
Instead, you’ll be able to focus on maintaining or even improving, the physique you desire.
How Does Male Liposuction Work?
The first step in your treatment is a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon. In this, you’ll discuss your aesthetic goals and identify the specific areas of your body that you will need to address to achieve your goals.
Small incisions will be made in the target area(s) and a solution is injected to help break up fat cells. A small suction tube is used to pull the unwanted fat out of your body.
After Your Procedure
It won’t take you weeks to recover from your male liposuction procedure. You may experience some soreness or discomfort, but it won’t last long.
Mild pain medication will be available to you in case you need it during your brief recovery period. You can expect to be able to resume all your usual activities within a couple of days.
Am I a Candidate for Male Liposuction?
Good candidates for the procedure share characteristics including:
- They are within 30 percent of their target weight.
- They have generally good muscle tone and skin elasticity.
- They are nonsmokers.
- They do not have a serious illness or a medical condition that could interfere with healing.
The best way to determine if liposuction is right for you is through a consultation with a qualified surgeon.
Choosing the Right Physician
While liposuction is a straightforward and well-established procedure, it is important that you select a qualified and experienced professional. Imagine for a moment the incredible range of results that can come from an activity as simple as making a cup of coffee, from a bitter and undrinkable cup to a moment of true delight.
Your body and your health deserve the highest standard possible. Dr. Berkowitz, a board-certified plastic surgeon, has the training, skill and artistic eye that are required to achieve the best possible outcome from a male liposuction procedure.
