Liposuction for Men

There’s a stereotype that revolves around the discussion of cosmetic surgery: that it’s just for women. It’s easy to fall into that trap when we’re flooded with news and pictures of female celebrities and models who’ve gone under the knife. But that’s not exactly the case. Men, too, are going under the knife, and liposuction just so happens to be their number one choice of cosmetic procedure, according to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

How Liposuction Works For Men

The procedure is completed via small micro-cannula tubes and can be performed anywhere. With VASER® liposuction, only a local anesthetic is used for the procedure. This technique can be used to combat a variety of problems like excess fat cells in stubborn areas of the body or gynecomastia, meaning large breasts in men.

These micro-cannulas are combined with ultrasound frequencies to remove fat from hard-to-target areas without causing severe swelling, bruising or bleeding.

Popular Liposuction Targets for Men:

  • Chin
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Love handles

Why is Liposuction so Popular with Men?

Friday night with the boys can spell out problematic beer bellies in the future. Or, a happy relationship can pack on a double chin. Just like women, men have their problem areas from their bellies to their love handles. And if guys want to make an impression, especially in a job market that’s suddenly emphasizing appearance as a symbol of professionalism, this life-altering surgery is the answer.

Things to Keep in Mind

Those who plan on undergoing this surgery should generally be healthy. Also, this procedure isn’t exactly the one-size-fits-all answer. After receiving their treatment, patients should treat their bodies to a healthy diet and routine exercise to maintain the body’s upkeep.
