What Is Liposuction for Men?

Patients with known allergies, circulatory problems, or a weak immune system are not recommended to undergo liposuction for men. If you want to reduce the appearance of cellulite, this cosmetic procedure may not be for you. It is also important that you are within 30% of your ideal body weight range.
During your consultation, a physical examination of the target areas will be conducted. Your medical history will be reviewed, and you will be asked about any underlying conditions and current medications. Your risk factors will be assessed, and additional tests may be requested.
You may also be asked about your expectations and desired results. Photographs may be taken for liposuction before-and-after comparison. The type of anesthesia and technique to be used for your procedure will also be discussed during this consultation.
Liposuction for Men: What to Expect
The first step in liposuction is the administration of anesthesia. Then small incisions will be create in strategic locations on the target areas. A thin hollow tube called a cannula will be inserted in the incisions. This will suction the fat out of the target areas until the desired results are achieved.
The patient’s vitals will be closely monitored throughout the process. Male liposuction can take a few hours, depending on the size and number of treatment areas.
Healing and Recovery
The healing after your male liposuction procedure may take several days, while full recovery may take a few weeks. You will be asked to wear compression garments to help lessen the swelling. Bruising and pain may be experienced, but medications may be prescribed to ease the discomfort.
You may be able to get back to work after a few days, but strenuous activities should still be avoided for about two weeks. You may be asked to come back for follow-up visits. You will be encouraged to maintain a proper diet and regular exercise to prolong the effects of the liposuction.
Cost of Liposuction for Men
