Unsurprisingly, body image issues caused by excess weight or fat tissue are not gender-specific– though plastic surgery is more popular amongst women, many men benefit from the confidence-building solutions plastic surgery can bring. Among the numerous cosmetic operations available, liposuction remains one of the most sought-after treatment options for body contouring by both men and women alike.
Full Body Liposuction
It is common for patients considering liposuction to have numerous areas of concern—luckily, many candidates can safely undergo a combination of male liposuction procedures in one session. If you are interested in removing stubborn fatty deposits from multiple areas, you should make Dr. Ellen aware of this during your consultation. The number of areas that can be treated depends on the patient’s health, the severity of apparent fatty tissue, and the amount of anesthesia required. Some patients may need to schedule multiple spaced-out procedures to avoid complications to their health.
Neck or Chin Liposuction for Men
For men interested in chin liposuction, the procedure often starts with an incision behind the earlobe and under the chin. By removing fat from these locations, Dr. Ellen can enhance your natural jawline, creating a more contoured look. Results are stubble but create a much more youthful appearance for your entire face.
Along with chin liposuction, many men may want to address excess fatty buildup in their necks. With an additional incision underneath the chin, neck liposuction can decrease fat in the neck, resulting in a muscular, defined neck.
Flanks and Abdominal Male Liposuction
The most common areas for stubborn fat to build are all around the abdominal region, so it is no surprise most patients considering liposuction are interested in procedures on their stomach or “love handles”. Incisions are created within the pant line for these procedures so that any resulting scars are easily hidden. Though abdominal and flank liposuction will reduce apparent fat, these are not weight-loss procedures and will only help to slim and contour your already existing figure. Patients with a high amount of fat removed may have loose skin leftover in which case skin tightening measures may be required.
Preparation and Recovery
Before undergoing any surgical operation, patients will need to have a consultation with Dr. Ellen to evaluate their candidacy. During this time, you should be prepared to discuss your medical history, aesthetic goals, areas of concern, and any other questions you may have. Dr. Ellen will walk you through the process of your procedure and ensure you are a viable candidate to avoid possible complications. Approved candidates should maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet prior to their surgery and should avoid smoking and alcohol.
Patients will need ample time to rest after their liposuction procedure. Make sure you have someone available to drive you home and help care for you for at least the first day. The recovery from liposuction requires some downtime, and patients will need to take at least five to seven days off from work after which they can return to their jobs or routine. However, the surgical site will continue to heal for a few months or two, so rigorous activities will need to be limited to avoid complications. If you have liposuction in multiple areas at once, your recovery may last a little longer, and Dr. Ellen will give you specialized instructions to ensure a safe recovery.
Though results are technically immediate, the body will swell as a part of the natural healing process, hindering visibility of results—improvement will gradually become visible as swelling decreases. Full results can take up to 3 months to become apparent.
