Who Can Undergo Liposuction For Men In Bloomfield Hills, MI?

It is important to understand that liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss and should be performed when you are near your ideal body weight. It will only be used to remove those last few pounds that do not respond to diet and exercise. It is also important to be a nonsmoker and to have good skin elasticity, which will ensure a better result. Men who wish to eliminate stubborn areas of fat to fit better into clothing and achieve a slimmer body contour can benefit from this procedure.

How Is Liposuction For Men Performed?

When you undergo liposuction in Bloomfield Hills, MI, the procedure can take 45 minutes to two hours depending on the treatment site. After the location for liposuction has been chosen and cleansed, Dr. Ellen will make some small incisions. Through these minimal incisions, she will then insert a thin tube called a cannula. This device will suction out the excess fat, leaving smoother contours.

When your surgery is complete, Dr. Ellen will close the incisions with sutures and apply a surgical dressing. She may also ask you to wear a compression garment for several days that will hold the new contours of your body in place. Any discomfort you experience may be managed with medication. It is important that you are up and walking as soon as possible after surgery to prevent swelling and blood clots in the legs. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided for 4-6 weeks.
