When you think about liposuction, the first thing that comes to mind is women. However, this cosmetic procedure is effective for men as well. If you have trouble spots that won’t respond to exercise or diet, liposuction could be the best solution for you. It will give you the opportunity to have the body you used to have or the body that you have always wanted by targeting stubborn stores of fat that you’ve been unable to shed. Sculpt your body with liposuction.
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a procedure in which stores of fat are suctioned out of your body. During the procedure, you will be provided with anesthesia. You have several options, including general anesthesia and sedation, as well as the use of a local anesthetic. Your preferences and the doctor’s recommendations will determine which form of anesthetic will be best for your situation.
Your plastic surgeon will then make a small incision in the area that is being treated. An anesthetic will be administered again before the cannula is inserted into the incision. This hollow tube loosens the fat and then it is vacuumed out of the tube. After the procedure is over, you can expect to experience fluid retention and swelling. It can take several months before all of the swelling finally goes down. At that point, you will be able to enjoy the results of your surgery.
What Areas of the Body are Treated by Liposuction?
When it comes to men, liposuction is most commonly used to address issues with love handles at the waistline, excess fat in the abdomen, and the chest. Liposuction is effective when it comes to eliminating excess fat in the hips, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms. It is considered a tool for shaping the body and is a procedure that benefits both men and women.
Who is the Best Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction should never be considered a replacement for diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss remedy. If you are considering liposuction, you should be within range of your ideal body weight. You also need to have skin that has retained its elasticity. Muscle tone is important as well. If you smoke, this cosmetic procedure is not advised. Liposuction is recommended for those who do not have underlying health conditions that could cause complications.
Get the Body that You Want
If you do move forward with liposuction, it’s important that you have realistic expectations. You will need to be patient during the recovery period and follow your surgeon’s instructions. A proper diet and regular exercise are essential if you want to maintain your results. Otherwise, you can accumulate stores of fat once again. Once you have sculpted your body through liposuction, be diligent about taking care of your body to enjoy lasting effects from your procedure.
