While women are the predominant recipients of liposuction, the procedure has also become a popular and efficient way for men looking to get rid of stubborn fat they just can’t seem to shake. In recent years especially, men have become more confident shedding social stigma and following through with cosmetic procedures that make them look and feel so much better.
As men get older and hit their mid-30s and beyond, they start noticing specific changes in their bodies, notably that it becomes harder to stay fit and remove excess fat. Men’s testosterone levels begin to dip along with their growth hormones, which leads to increased body fat in hard-to-eliminate areas. These areas are typically the belly, the chest, the lower back, and the famous love handles.
Plus, let’s be honest, at this stage in your life you likely have a growing family or at least increasing responsibilities at work that leave you with less available time to exercise, play sports, and go to the gym. The reality is that nowadays, time is of the essence, and we don’t want to be wasting time.
Exercising regularly, eating healthier, and cutting back on the alcohol should be the first steps you take to get into better shape. However, a faster and easier way to get back to that flawless body we used to have in our 20s, liposculpture for men, can prove to be a viable alternative.
Benefits of Men’s Liposuction
Some notable differences exist between liposuction for men and women, since, after all, their bodies differ in some significant ways. The idea behind a men’s liposuction is to remove fat from desired areas while simultaneously accentuating pre-existing muscles by creating a subtle contrast between muscle and fat. For example, during procedures conducted on the torso, your doctor will remove excess fat from the stomach and make the pecs pop out to give your body a well-built image.
Here are a few noteworthy benefits men can derive from liposuction:
• Your body will appear more proportionate.
• Your confidence levels and comfort in your own skin will drastically increase.
• You’ll be able to squeeze into those years-old pairs of pants buried deep in your closet.
• You’ll become increasingly encouraged to maintain an exercise and diet plan.
What is the Procedure?
• The procedure will last about 1-2 hours, done under general anesthetic.
• The fat is removed by way of a small-to-moderate incision, which is later stitched up.
With women, the idea is a bit different, as the objective is not to accentuate the muscles but instead to remove unwanted fat and give them a curvier look.
Men’s skin is thicker than women’s, therefore they usually respond very well to this procedure. Drastic changes can occur in their bodies, and the subsequent amazing male sculptures often leave patients wondering why they did not decide to pursue liposculpture sooner.
The first step in the process will require you to have a checkup, where a doctor or nurse will measure your BMI (Body Mass Index) to ensure the procedure is safe for you. Since there are physical limits to the amount of fat that can be removed from the body, if you are considerably overweight, the procedure might not be recommended or safe for you. Liposculpture is a procedure that works best for body sculpting, not weight loss.
