Curious about liposuction for men? You’re not alone. Liposuction is the most popular plastic surgery amongst both men and women, and it’s only getting more popular.
However, there are a lot of misconceptions about liposuction. People tend to think liposuction is meant for severely overweight people and that it’s only something women do. That’s simply not the case. Liposuction is actually intended for fit people who are having trouble getting rid of lingering pockets of fat by means of diet and exercise alone.
As we get older, fat gets harder to banish from our hips, bottoms, and stomachs. Men tend to have the hardest time doing away with small pockets of fat on their stomachs and sides. This is where liposuction can help.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, men underwent more than one million cosmetic procedures last year, and the largest portion of those procedures were liposuction. The number of men opting for any sort of plastic surgery has increased 237% since 1997. What more and more men are realizing is that liposuction is a safe, simple way to achieve the body they deserve.
When you decide to undergo liposuction, you’ll begin with a consultation with Chicago plastic surgeon, Dr. Niki Christopoulos. During your private consultation, Dr. Christopoulos will discuss your goals and help you decide on a course of action. If you determine that liposuction is the right choice for you, you’ll set your surgery date. The procedure itself is done as an outpatient procedure under either IV sedation or general anesthesia. You’ll be able to go back to work within a day or two and should feel completely healed two weeks after your procedure. Once you’ve healed, you’ll be able to enjoy and show off your new slimmer, trimmer physique.
If you’re a fit person, but you’re starting to have trouble keeping your beer belly or love handles in check, liposuction might be the right choice for you. The procedure can be completely customized to target the specific areas where your body holds onto fat. Liposuction won’t keep you from putting on weight, but if you do put weight on after your procedure, it shouldn’t concentrate in the places where you had your procedure.
