There is no doubt that cosmetic surgery is in high demand among women of all ages, but you may be surprised to learn that a growing number of men undergo plastic surgery each year. One of the most popular procedures among men is liposuction. With its ability to remove stubborn fat and restore a more youthful, sculpted physique, it’s easy to see why more and more men seek liposuction in Beverly Hills each year. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jaime Schwartz has an exceptional amount of experience in helping men achieve their ideal look through the most advanced and innovative cosmetic treatments and procedures in Beverly Hills, CA. Get the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about male liposuction here.
WHAT DOES LIPOSUCTION DO?
Liposuction is a highly effective fat removal surgery that can help to smooth, slim, and contour many areas of the body. The procedure itself involves several tiny incisions near the treatment area, through which a handheld tube – or cannula – is inserted. In some cases, Dr. Schwartz will utilize “super-wet” liposuction, during which a tumescent fluid is injected into the liposuction site to maximize the procedure’s efficiency. This is particularly beneficial for procedures involving a larger treatment site. Dr. Schwartz will then manually suction out the unwanted fat cells and sculpt a gorgeous new contour.
CAN MEN GET LIPOSUCTION?
Absolutely. In fact, more and more men each year are turning to liposuction to help rid themselves of stubborn fat deposits that have become unresponsive to diet and exercise alone. This is a common side effect of aging, though it can happen to men of virtually any age. Many men develop these pockets of stubborn fat due to:
- Weight fluctuation
In any of these scenarios, liposuction can help to finally remove lingering fat and give men the results they deserve when diet and exercise fail. If you are considering male liposuction, it may be helpful to consider the answers to these common FAQs about liposuction for men in Beverly Hills:
WHERE CAN MEN GET LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction is one of the most versatile cosmetic procedures and can be used to enhance a man’s appearance virtually from head to toe. Some of the most common treatment areas for male liposuction include:
- Under the chin
- Male chest
HOW MUCH WEIGHT CAN A MAN LOSE WITH LIPOSUCTION?
First and foremost, men considering liposuction should have realistic expectations for their results and understand that liposuction is not designed to be a weight loss tool. Furthermore, patients should already be at or near their ideal goal weight and have maintained that weight for at least 6 – 12 months prior to undergoing liposuction. In most cases, Dr. Schwartz can safely remove up to about 10 – 11 pounds of fat in a single liposuction procedure. However, patients should be committed to maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly in order to preserve their results for the long term.
IS LIPOSUCTION PERMANENT?
Yes and no. The fat cells removed during liposuction are destroyed and will not return. However, the remaining fat cells can become enlarged with future weight gain, and new fat cells can be generated. For this reason, men considering liposuction in Beverly Hills should continue to practice healthy habits and avoid subsequent weight fluctuation in order to avoid compromising their results.
DOES LIPOSUCTION FIX GYNECOMASTIA?
One of the most common, frustrating, and embarrassing concerns that lead men to pursue cosmetic surgery is gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement. While liposuction can certainly make dramatic improvements to the male chest in some situations, such as pseudogynecomastia, men struggling with true gynecomastia may not benefit from liposuction. If enlarged male breasts are the result of excess fatty tissue, male liposuction can be a fantastic solution. However, when a man has glandular gynecomastia, Dr. Schwartz may recommend surgical removal of the excess glandular breast tissue as a more effective treatment.
WHAT DO MALE LIPOSUCTION SCARS LOOK LIKE?
It is completely understandable for patients to want to keep their cosmetic treatments discreet. Dr. Schwartz takes great care to place liposuction incisions in areas where they can be easily concealed with clothing or camouflaged within the natural lines and contours of the body. With the incredible advances in medical technology, the incisions required for modern liposuction are exceptionally tiny. With proper aftercare, including the use of topical ointments and avoiding sun exposure, most men can barely see their own liposuction scars after they have fully healed and faded.
