For many men, fat is just a part of their body and their life. With busy lifestyles and fast food options available by apps for delivery and endless television shows available at a click, there seems to be less time for proper dieting and exercise. Yet the struggle goes and the desire to lose belly fat, or the dreaded “love handles” – a nice name for something men all dread, that struggle goes on.
Men who may be struggling to lose excess body fat or who may not know their options have been turning to liposuction to achieve their body goals and feel better about themselves overall.
According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed procedures in the United States. Male liposuction removes excess stubborn fat deposits from specific areas such as the: abdomen, hips, thighs, butt, chin, waist, hips, neck, back, arms and additional areas. ‘
Dr. Edward Kole of The Kole Plastic Surgery Center finds the majority of male patients are of a relatively normal, healthy weight with good skin tone. Dr. Kole finds it very important to help patients enhance their self-image, along with their help, attain their desire for a more contoured and proportioned appearance, performed by a board certified plastic surgeon.
There are men who have lost a large amount of weight, as well, that undergo liposuction. Love handles aren’t loved by all in today’s body-conscious society. There are areas worked on together during one surgery. That is to be determined during your time spent in the complimentary consultation.
Male liposuction should not be considered the solution for weight loss, as some might think. You have the same potential to gain weight after your liposuction procedure as you did before; it is all up to you. When weight gain occurs after liposuction, fat cells usually build up and increase in a different area of the body.
It is very important to remain physically active and eat a well-balanced diet. Should you have excess skin in areas that you intend on having liposuction, you may have a “lift” performed in conjunction. A lift will guarantee that your excess skin will be removed after the fat is taken from the area. Areas with healthy, normal amounts of skin will shrink back while healing from liposuction.
There are several techniques used to perform liposuction and surgeons prefer different types. Dr. Kole prefers the tumescent liposuction method using a solution of local anesthetic with saline and a smaller micro-cannulas. This enables Dr. Kole to make tinier incisions. Upon inserting the cannula below the skin and into the layer of fat, located above the muscle, fat cells are suctioned out safely and quickly. This technique allows Dr. Kole to maximize all safety measures and eliminate as much risk and complications as possible, as well as achieving a newer more contoured look.
All methods, regardless of which technique is used by the surgeon remove fat, it’s a matter of liquefying it prior to removal or removing the fat, as is, once gaining access. After your male liposuction procedure you will be required to wear a compression garment. This helps with healing, swelling and bruising. All of your post-op instructions should be followed to optimize your safest and smoothest recovery possible.
Specific details about your overall health history and procedural information will be discussed when you meet with Dr. Kole. You will be given a physical examination and evaluated for your candidacy. Pictures of prior patients will be shared and all of Dr. Kole’s credentials, also, any additional procedures the doctor believes would best benefit you, if necessary.
