A common procedure we perform at Park Plaza Plastic Surgery is liposuction. Dr. George Lefkovits helps both men and women reduce fat and create a look they feel proud of. If you are struggling to be rid of stubborn fat deposits, liposuction can help you get the figure you want.
Many men find that dieting and exercise are good ways to lose weight and tone muscle, but unfortunately, men often find that they do not get the buff-looking body they desire. Stubborn fat deposits may conceal the toned muscles and make it look as though you haven’t lost any weight at all. Liposuction is a way to improve upon the results you can achieve on your own to finally get the figure you want. This is a great option for men who have been exercising regularly but still find themselves struggling with fat on their bodies.
The Male Liposuction Procedure
Before you have your procedure, our plastic surgeon will give you an examination to make sure you are a good candidate for liposuction. During the procedure, fat will be removed through a suction-powered tube called a cannula. When removing the fat, our plastic surgeon will make a number of small incisions to give you an even result. The incisions should heal very smoothly, leaving only the slightest of traces.
Dr. Lefkovits can remove fat from the following areas with liposuction:
- Chest (Gynecomastia correction)
We can remove fat from several areas during one procedure, but there are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed at a time.
Liposuction Recovery and Results
After your procedure, you will wear a compression garment that will encourage healing and skin retraction to maximize the chances that you will get the results you desire. After treatment, you will also be given several massages and ultrasound treatments, which also encourage healing. You are encouraged to be mobile and take short walks, but all heavy exercise should be restricted for at least two weeks. Most liposuction patients return to work in less than a week.
The results of liposuction are often very good, helping you achieve a slimmer figure. In order to maintain your results, it is important to keep a healthy diet and maintain regular exercise after healing from your treatment. However, although weight gain can affect your future figure, liposuction permanently alters the distribution of fat in your body, making it less likely you will get more fat in treated areas.
