At Jeffords Plastic Surgery, we offer liposuction for men in Atlanta to address a spare tire or love handles that just won’t go away. These stubborn fat deposits are resistant to diet and exercise. Common areas for male liposuction include the abdomen, love handles, chin, arms, neck, and chest (resolving gynecomastia, the condition of having male breasts).
Liposuction is a procedure that can help define the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas. Liposuction has become quite popular with men. Whether it be a head start towards weight loss or removal of stubborn fat deposits, liposuction is a proven way to improve the contours on the male body.
During the past decade, liposuction, which is also known as “lipoplasty” or “suction lipectomy,” remains the Gold Standard for body contouring.
What Are the Different Techniques for Liposuction?
There are several types of lipo that are being marketed. The traditional tumescent liposuction remains the gold standard method for fat removal. In this procedure, the fat layer is infiltrated with a solution containing local anesthesia, epinephrine (adrenaline), and IV fluid. This solution numbs the fat and contracts the blood vessels. It allows the surgeon to remove more fat with less risks of bleeding.
All of the other techniques involve tumescent techniques with additional steps. There is Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) that has a mechanical handpiece that supplements the motions of the surgeon.
There is Laser Assisted Lipolysis (proprietary names include SmartLipo). This technique is done in an office setting under a tumescent setting. Laser Assisted Liposuction is for SMALL-volume liposuction only and often requires multiple session to remove fat. Freezing subcutaneous fat (CoolSculpting) is another marketed way to reduce fat.
Our surgeons use traditional tumescent liposuction to perform his liposuction. It is the safest technique with very predictable results. There is no risk for skin injury with tumescent liposuction as with the other techniques. High definition liposuction (sometimes called ab etching) is performed with this technique. Amazing results can be achieved with this very safe technique.
After Your Male Lipo Treatment
Liposuction for men requires a period of downtime and recovery. The exact details of this will depend on the size, number, and location of treated areas. Make sure to follow the post-surgical care directions of Dr. Jeffords for best results.
It will be necessary to wear an elastic garment for a time. This garment helps the skin better conform to the new contours of the treated regions. It also aids in reduction of bruising and swelling, as do ice packs.
