Whenever cosmetic surgery is discussed, it is always assumed that it is only for women but this is not the case. Nowadays a large number of men are knocking on plastic surgeon’s doors for cosmetic surgeries and they are even more than women in some cases. There are a number of such cosmetic procedures that are becoming more and more popular among men but no other procedure is rising in popularity faster than liposuction. Liposuction is the best option for those men who have been struggling to eradicate fat deposits on localized areas of their body through dieting and exercise but fat is not responding or shifting.
Liposuction is a long-lasting procedure for men to shape their bodies. Also known as lipoplasty – liposuction cannot be used for weight loss. Instead, it is helpful for the removal of fats that are difficult to shift. Once these fat deposits are removed, they do not come back. Although any area of the body can be treated through liposuction three popular treatment areas for men are neck, abdomen and love handles.
The neck fat is suctioned through a small incision under the chin or behind the ear. Excess fat under the chin is removed to give a slim shape to the neck. In the case of love handles and abdomen, small incisions are made on several sites of the treatment area to avoid long linear scars.
The procedure of traditional liposuction involves breaking down the fat with the help of cannula and then the broken fat is sucked through a vacuum. The procedure is invasive as fat is broken manually but now a number of techniques are available that make the removal of fat less invasive. The most beneficial technologies used for this purpose are ultrasound and laser.
In ultrasound-assisted liposuction, ultrasound waves are used to liquefy fat and in laser liposuction, the laser is used to do the same. Ultrasonic liposuction is quite helpful for men in treating the areas that have fibrous fats like back and love handles. Furthermore, it is also an effective treatment for gynecomastia – breast enlargement in men.
There are lots of cosmetic procedures that are performed on both men and women but as the composition of male body differs from that of female, technical differences exist and results vary. Men have thicker skin and their blood supply is also greater. There are more chances of bleeding in men but healing is also amazing. Liposuction can provide perfect results to men if it is performed by a qualified and board-certified plastic surgeon.
In simple words, liposuction is equally beneficial for men as it is for women. Stubborn fats in different areas of the body that do not respond to exercise and dieting can be removed through liposuction. However, you should keep this fact in mind that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure. It is only a body contouring procedure and its results can be maintained with a strict diet and exercise. However, you should consult with an expert liposuction surgeon before getting the procedure.
