Male Liposuction at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C.
Performed at our Atlanta, Alpharetta, Cumming and Newnan, GA locations.
Both men and women have excess fat that they wish they could remove. However, there are areas of the body that can be especially troubling to men, resisting the efforts of diet and exercise; for these areas, male liposuction can be the solution.
Liposuction surgery involves the surgical suctioning of excess fat through discrete incisions in different areas of the body and face. These fat deposits, which lie between the skin and muscle, are broken up and then removed from that particular area to create a slimmer, tighter contour. The most common areas for male liposuction include the neck, chin, abdomen, “love handles” and breasts (gynecomastia). The surgeons at Atlanta Plastic Surgery are cognoscente of the innate differences in a man and woman’s anatomy, and can ensure that any body contouring will result in a different, more masculine physique (if desired).
Candidates for male liposuction are men who are in relatively good physical health and wish to remove areas of excess fat that don’t seem to be affected by exercising or dieting. It is of vital importance though that male liposuction patients continue or start a regular exercise and health diet routine to support the results of their procedure. While the fat cells that are removed during male liposuction are long lasting, it does not mean that the remaining fat cells cannot expand with weight gain and reverse the results of the liposuction surgery.
Can male liposuction help me to lose weight?
No, removing more than a few pounds of fat during a single liposuction procedure can potentially be dangerous. This can be particularly true in men, who tend to carry their excess fat in the torso rather than in the thighs or buttocks. Liposuction is most effective when it is used to eliminate small deposits of fat from isolated areas of the body that tend to resist the effects of diet and exercise, or when it can refine and complement the results of other body contouring procedures, like a tummy tuck. Liposuction of the flanks, or “love-handles,” is also extremely popular. However, patients who have lost a significant amount of weight and who seek to remove excess, sagging skin that may be left behind can also benefit from various forms of post-weight loss surgery.
