When it comes to plastic surgery, men are often unfairly overlooked. While women represent the majority of plastic surgery patients, the rates of men getting plastic surgery continue to increase every year.
This shouldn’t be a surprise. Men and women alike take pride in their appearances and want to look their best for professional and personal reasons. Confidence is a great look on everyone, and men can feel just as frustrated as women when they work hard to lose weight and get in shape, and find that pockets of fat hang on and detract attention away from their best features.
Liposuction is an effective answer to these concerns. The versatility of this procedure allows it to work equally well on male and female patients, creating a look that isn’t always possible with lifestyle changes alone.
How liposuction can improve the male physique
Although men tend to gain and lose weight differently than women, they still have areas of concern that may not respond to diet and exercise. This makes it difficult to achieve a fit, sculpted, lean look — even when you have a solid exercise plan in place.
Top areas of concern for men tend to be the chest (male breasts), flanks (love handles), abdomen, and neck. These areas are hard to disguise under clothing, and can be a source of embarrassment for men who desire a more youthful, athletic look. Fortunately, creating more attractive body contours in these areas is possible with the right plastic surgeon and a well-done liposuction procedure.
What to expect
One advantage to today’s liposuction techniques is that the procedure can be done with minimal disruption to your life. Men are busy with careers, families, and personal affairs too, and often can’t afford to take a few weeks off to recover from surgery.
With minimally invasive SmartLipo™, you can skip general anesthesia and go home the same day. Incisions are smaller than those from traditional lipo, and the procedure involves less bruising and swelling. The only person who needs to know you ever had surgery is the person who drives you to and from the procedure and helps with your initial (but quick) recovery!
Loss of fat can be seen immediately, but your final results will appear naturally and gradually over several weeks as your skin tightens over the newly sculpted area. Your surgeon may advise you to wear a compression garment for up to two weeks, which can be easily hidden under your regular clothing.
The amazing results of liposuction are not limited to women. If you’re a man looking for an effective way to achieve the physique you really want, talk with an experienced plastic surgeon about your liposuction options.
