It seems that since the innovation of plastic surgery, it has always been targeted towards women. It isn’t surprising, considering women are typically pressured to meet a particular ideal of feminine curves and a thin body frame. Although not often talked about, men care about how they look too. Among the most commonly requested procedures for men is liposuction. Many men suffer from excess fat along stubborn areas of the body such as the abdomen, chest (gynecomastia), arms, and legs. Liposuction is designed to remove unwanted fat while smoothing and shaping the physique to create a more masculine body.
What Can a Man Achieve With Liposuction?
Liposuction can be performed on any area of the body, and multiple areas of the body can be addressed during one procedure. Men who want to target excessive pockets of fat while improving muscle visibility can benefit from liposuction surgery.
Get Rid of “Man Boobs”
Many men of all ages suffer from a condition known as gynecomastia. When there is too much glandular tissue and fat in the chest area, some men develop unwanted “man boobs.” Gynecomastia can develop for various reasons, such as genetics, hormonal changes, weight gain, drug abuse, and alcohol use. Male breast reduction involves the use of liposuction, excision, or both to remove enlarged breast tissue.
The abdominal area is one of the most stubborn areas of the body that carries excess fatty tissue for both men and women. Liposuction is used to reduce the circumference of the abdomen while toning and shaping the abdominals.
Shape and Tone the Legs and Arms
Having slimmed and toned legs and arms is a common trait some men desire to have. Once addressed with liposuction, the legs, thighs, and arms can show more visible muscle mass and appear more masculine. With more toned legs and arms, patients can overall improve the contours of the body.
Am I a Candidate for Liposuction?
The best candidates for liposuction are in good health, have realistic expectations, and are at or near their ideal body weight. Patients should not use liposuction as a weight loss method but as an option to improve the physique. Liposuction is designed to slim and shape areas of the body by removing unwanted fat. Candidates should have already tried diet and exercise to achieve their goals without success.
