Body Contouring Liposuction Male Breast Reduction

Top Male Liposuction Procedures

Stubborn fat pockets on the male body tend to show up in different places than in women; along with the thighs, belly, and arms, many men also find problem fat in the chest, back, calves, and even less-obvious areas such as around the knees. Liposuction can target and sculpt each of these problem areas precisely. Male liposuction uses a thin liposuction wand (“cannula”) to remove fat from these areas gently while the patient is under twilight or general sedation.

Larger-Scale Improvements

Men typically have larger areas of fat removed this way from 4 common areas: the chest, belly, back, and arms. One common condition that requires this treatment is gynecomastia, excess fat and tissue in the male “breast” area, but liposuction can correct this excess fat on the torso, back, and arms. Some men have excess fat stored on their upper chest in the form of breast tissue. Gynecomastia, as the condition is known, is very embarrassing for men and they seek removal of the fat pockets.

Many men have only small amount of fat tissue, which needs to be removed. Liposuction helps remove this tissue. Liposuction is carried out through the minimally invasive tumescent technique to help minimize or eliminate the risk of tiny scars, and shorten recovery time.

Small-Scale Sculpting

In some men, excess fat can appear under the chin and around the neck, making them appear shorter or slouching. Men who experience this problem may appear heavier than they are in reality due to fat pockets in this area. Some men are left with excess skin after losing too much weight. In that case, a combination of liposuction and brachioplasty, or arm lift, can help. The procedure removes folds of excess skin and helps make the arm look more slender.

Keep in mind, Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity; it cannot replace proper diet and exercise to reduce weight. However, if diet and exercise are not enough to create the sculpted shape you want, this procedure may be the most effective way to target fat deposits in specific areas, with the end result being a smoother, firmer, and more sculpted body.
