Liposculpture for Males
Get Slim But Stay Masculine
Men accumulate fat on their bodies differently than women. The most common place for liposuction for male patient is the waist and back, also known as love handles. Male patients tend to carry their weight in their mid section, while women tend to be more bottom heavy. The abdomen and male breasts are also places that have been treated. Especially those who suffer from gynecomastia, a benign condition where a hormonal imbalance that normally occurs during pubescence causes the development of male breasts.
Tumescent liposculpture works similarly to a normal standard liposuction procedure, which is the removal of excess bodily fat by means of suctioning the fat through small cannulas inserted into small incisions.
Liposculpture is a more advanced form of liposuction. It is the removal and reshaping of the fat in areas such as the stomach, chin and neck. It works by using a tumescent fluid to both numb and help liquefy the fat. The anesthetic solution is injected to help constrict the arteries and blood vessels in the treated area in order to keep bleeding and swelling to a minimum. Liposculpture is also performed under local anesthesia which eliminates risks associated with general anesthesia and sedation. After the fluid is injected, small incisions are made and a micro-cannula is inserted into the treatment location. Unwanted fat is then removed by a high-pressure vacuum.
Liposculpture is a minimally invasive procedure, which decreases the patient’s downtime post procedure significantly. The recovery will allow the patient to return to work two to three days afterwards and physical exercise can resume shortly after. Because the procedure both removes fat and contours the body, Liposculpture will leave the patient with more even results.
