What is Male Liposuction?
With plastic surgery on the rise, it comes as no surprise that many men are starting to take an interest in reaching their body goals. As we age, unwanted fat can start accumulating in various areas of our body that can be difficult to get rid of, even with diet and exercise. Fortunately, Dr. Constantino Mendieta specializes in male body contouring procedures like male liposuction to help you achieve a slimmer, firmer midsection. Male liposuction is a surgical procedure that sculpts and tones the body by eliminating fat from trouble spots to create an attractive and athletic physique.
Ideal candidates for male liposuction must be in good overall health and have realistic expectations. You will also be asked to stop smoking for at least two weeks before and after your surgery. Dr. Mendieta will examine the condition of your body to determine the best approach to produce the aesthetic results you desire. Male liposuction can remove unwanted fat from the following areas:
Male Liposuction Procedure
Male liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis and can take one hour to complete, depending on the amount of fat being removed. During your procedure, a small incision will be placed in the treatment site and excess fatty tissue is removed using a thin metal tube, also known as a cannula. Once the fat has been removed, Dr. Mendieta will reshape your body to produce a more toned figure. The incisions are then closed using sutures.
Male liposuction can be performed alongside other body contouring procedures like abdominal etching to enhance your overall results.
Following your male liposuction, you will be asked to wear a compression garment for two weeks or until your wounds are fully healed. Swelling and bruising will occur but should resolve within three weeks.
You will need to refrain from all physical activities for at least two weeks unless instructed otherwise by Dr. Mendieta.
Male liposuction provides long-lasting results that will leave your body looking toned and slim. Final results will become apparent a few weeks after your surgery. However, this procedure is not intended for permanent or major weight loss. Be sure to stick to a proper diet and exercise routine to maintain your results.
How much does male liposuction cost?
The cost of your liposuction will vary based on factors such as surgical fees, anesthesia fees, and the extent of correction needed. Dr. Mendieta will review your financial options to determine the best plan for you during your private consultation.
Are there any risks or side effects involved with male liposuction?
As with most surgical procedures, there are some risks and side effects involved with male liposuction, including:
- Skin irregularities
- Blood clots
- Allergic reactions
- Poor wound healing
What type of anesthesia is used for my procedure?
Dr. Mendieta uses either local or general anesthesia when performing male liposuction.
Will there be scars after my male liposuction procedure?
Dr. Mendieta can perform male liposuction with minimally visible incision marks to provide you with natural-looking results.
