Why do Males Make Liposuction?

If you’re a man looking for liposuction on your love handles or elsewhere in Long Island, New York, or any location, just know that you’re not alone. According to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2017 there were 246,354 liposuction procedures performed, up 5% from the 235,237 procedures in 2016.

If you assume that it was strictly a quarter of a million women having those liposuction procedures on their thighs and tummies from NYC to L.A., think again. Exactly 28,180 of those liposuction procedures were performed on men.

Men like their love handles liposuctioned too

The growing popularity of male liposuction is well known by Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, a board-certified dermatologist and laser surgeon at New York Cosmetic Skin and Laser Surgery Center, with locations in NYC and Long Island. As an expert in liposuction procedures, having performed thousands over the last 20 years, Dr. Rokhsar has plenty of firsthand experience with the surge in body image issues with men, many of whom are more than willing to reach out for help to address their aesthetic needs and desires.

In 2017, more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures were performed on men. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons notes that more men are asking their surgeons, like New York’s Dr. Rokhsar, about building confidence by improving their bodies via liposuction.

Men want summer bodies all year round

Whereas some male celebrities and VIPs are still sneaking up freight elevators and fire escapes, hidden behind baseball hats to get their plastic surgery work done, others are walking boldly into the front doors of NYC plastic surgery offices and declaring what they want. After all, these athletes, corporate executives, and every day “Average Joes” are not shy about displaying the hard work they’ve put in at the gym, and the weight loss they’ve achieved by eating right. In addition, they don’t mind admitting that they need extra help to get those last few percentages of stubborn back fat or “spare tire waists” off their bodies, or even a little filler in their faces to help continue their “executive edge” consisting of a younger, fresher appearance.

Dr. Rokhsar is able to provide both older, younger, and middle-aged healthy men with the body contouring procedures they seek. Stubborn fat in the breast or tummy region for men can be a result of medication, metabolism, or several other reasons. Expert dermatologist and laser surgeon Dr. Rokhsar understands that men want to feel good and confident about their bodies.

Men want liposuction to help feel comfortable in their own skin

While the focus is often on women getting liposuction, younger and older men’s aesthetic goals should not be ignored. Dr. Rokhsar helps men and women of varying ages create the sleek physiques they desire via liposuction procedures that remove fat from the waist, back, love handles, abdomen area, and other regions of the body under local anesthesia. For example, in NYC a man might experience a big confidence boost by having fat removed by Dr. Rokhsar, leaving him with minimal scarring. Another example is a man who receives a tumescent liposuction procedure at Dr. Rokhsar’s Long Island office and is ready and more self-assured to hit the beach within a week or two.
