A Quick Intro: Male Liposuction

Liposuction often is thought of as a “woman’s procedure,” but the truth is that people from both genders can see amazing results through this cosmetic surgery. As one of the most rapidly growing forms of male plastic surgery, male liposuction is definitely worth consideration since it fixes a problem that both men and women are frustrated with.

As people age, it becomes harder and harder to lose weight or maintain a sleek, attractive physique. With the onset of aging, men tend to get love handles, jowls, or even gynecomastia. In many cases, diet and exercise alone will not be able to remedy these things. When this happens, the best shot a man can get at retaining his youthful handsomeness is to call on the help of a talented plastic surgeon.

The best thing about liposuction these days is that it can be done through a variety of different methods and that it is easier than ever before to find a surgery procedure that will get you the results that you have been hoping for. Many of them are more affordable, safer, and quicker than the options that existed back in the 90’s. Since plastic surgery has become a more common practice, there are also more doctors than ever before who specialize in male liposuction.

A Quick Intro: Male Liposuction

Today advances in liposuction have made it easier for plastic surgeons to cut risks of complications, improve the long-term results that patients see, and also improve the overall recovery time. It’s not impossible to turn what was once a flabby body into a body that looks wiry and natural. In fact, many men who have had liposuction often remark that they look more toned than they did in the past 10 years.

There was one time when the flabbiness that comes with aging was something that men had to put up with, or perhaps, try to hide with a tailored suit jacket. There was a time when jowls and male breasts would have just been grudgingly accepted as the norm. Thankfully for both men and the women who love them, that time is in the past. With the right surgeon, it is possible for men to keep the masculine physiques of their youthful days without having to resort to extreme dieting and exercise routines.

Liposuction procedure for men in New York

The liposuction procedure for men in New York begins with the injection of a solution composed of saline (salt water), a local anesthetic, and a small amount of adrenaline to decrease bruising and bleeding. This is known as either the tumescent or super-wet technique, depending on the ratio of the fluid to the fatty tissue being removed.

Once this solution has been introduced into the area planned for liposuction treatment, the doctor proceeds with one of two different methods of liposuction currently approved by plastic surgeons: suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL) or ultrasonic-assisted lipectomy (UAL).

In both methods, a tiny incision is made in a discreet place. In SAL, a cannula (small tube) is inserted and moved back and forth beneath the skin, breaking up the fat layer and suctioning it out. In UAL, ultrasonic energy is used to liquefy the fat before it is suctioned out with a cannula.

Depending on the amount of fat being removed, the liposuction surgery for men may last from 1 to 5 hours in Dr. Steinbrech’s New York clinic.

There has never been a better time to look into liposuction as a man – especially if you consider the incredible improvements that have been made in recent years. Along with more medical research comes the added benefit of easier financing, medical loan offers as well and more reasonable prices for each procedure. For men, this means that finding a procedure to suit your needs is easier than ever before on a number of fronts. Chances are high that the right doctor will give you results that are above and beyond your expectations, and will be able to do so at an affordable price. If you want to improve the way you look, and dieting has not been doing as well as you’d have hoped, it’s time to call our office for a free consultation.
