What Is Liposuction For Men?

Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat to contour a particular area in the body.  Liposuction can be used in both small and large areas, such as under the chin or the abdomen.  Liposuction for men is different than liposuction for women because men develop fatty deposits in different areas.  Popular liposuction sites for men include the abdomen, chest, lower back, waist, thighs, and buttocks.  Liposuction may be done as a stand-alone procedure, but it is often done in conjunction with other treatments, such as male breast reduction or a tummy tuck.

Liposuction for Men Benefits

Liposuction has become extremely popular among men.  Although the liposuction is not an overall weight loss solution, it does have many benefits that make the procedure worth your while.  Liposuction for men:

Liposuction for Men Candidates

The most important thing to remember about liposuction is that the procedure is not a weight loss solution.  Liposuction is designed for men who are within 30 percent of their ideal weight.  Men who undergo the procedure need to have realistic body contouring goals.  Firm, elastic skin and good muscle tone are required.

Liposuction is sometimes used in conjunction with other procedures on men who have lost a significant amount of weight and are left with abnormalities.  Men with particular medical conditions such as lipomas, gynecomastia, and lipodystrophy syndrome may also be good candidates.

How Is Male Liposuction Performed?

Liposuction breaks up the fat cells that cluster together to form bulges and bumps in undesirable parts of the body.  Various liposuction techniques are used based on the area that is being sculpted and the patient’s needs.  Anesthesia is used; however, the type will be discussed prior to your procedure.  Any incisions made will be small, and the scars will be almost unnoticeable.  After the procedure, you can expect to wear support bandages to help you heal.

Why Choose Dr. Peters for Male Liposuction?

Getting the results you want from liposuction is important, but staying healthy during and after the procedure is even more important.  Liposuction surgery should only be performed by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Peters who has the expertise necessary to make you look lean and tight while keeping you in tip-top physical condition.

How Much Does Male Liposuction Cost in Orlando?

Liposuction procedures and techniques vary based on the patient’s individual treatment plan.  Liposuction may be performed alone, or in many cases, liposuction is performed in conjunction with other procedures, affecting the cost.  Because male liposuction is typically elective, most insurance carriers typically do not extend benefits for the procedure.  You should always check with your health insurance company just to be sure.  The Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery offers financing via CareCredit® and accepts cash, personal checks, and credit cards.
