LIPOSUCTION CAN HELP MEN ACHIEVE A SCULPTED APPEARANCE IN CERTAIN PARTS OF THEIR BODY, SUCH AS THE NECK, BELLY, WAIST, AND THE BACK BY ELIMINATING EXCESS FAT TO BETTER SCULPT THE BODY.

What is liposuction in men

In summary, liposuction is cosmetic surgery that removes fatty deposits located in a specific areas resistant to exercise, through use of a mechanical suction device.

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE

Dr. Zadeh will be able to determine if you are an ideal candidate for liposuction. It is important to understand that you must be at a healthy weight for liposuction to produce the desired results. Liposuction is used to reduce layers of fat in specific areas such as the neck, belly and love handles in men.

To achieve good results, the candidate must have healthy skin with adequate elasticity allowing it to retract properly after the removal of fat. Liposuction doesn’t produce weight loss and aims only to remove localized fat cells. Dr. Zadeh advises against liposuction in cases of morbid obesity.

SURGICAL PROCEDURE

During surgery, Dr. Zadeh will introduce a medicated solution that will help reduce bruising and relieve post-operative discomfort. Dr. Zadeh will make tiny incisions that will vary between two and four millimetres. With a back and forth motion, Dr. Zadeh sucks up fat cells with a cannula attached to a mechanical suction device.

The incisions will then be closed and covered with a bandage. The incisions are more frequently located in the natural folds of the skin, minimizing their visibility.
