Male Liposuction
Am I A Good Candidate?

 

Male Liposuction Chicago

Liposuction is the process of removing excess fat in order to slim, reshape, and improve contour of specific areas of the body. In men, liposuction is most commonly useful for treating unwanted fat deposits in the abdomen, arms, back, and calves.

Liposuction is a viable treatment for men who find it difficult to get rid of stubborn excess fat that does not respond to weight-loss measures like diet and exercise.

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR LIPOSUCTION?

If you are a male that is considering liposuction, you should be in generally good physical health, a non-smoker, and lack any medical conditions that may hinder the ability to heal properly.

As your body ages, it is natural to lose some firmness and begin to accumulate deposits of fat in some areas of the body. Liposuction can be an ideal way to get rid of unwanted excess fat, and the results can be long-lasting with a stable diet and general physical fitness.

Though liposuction is a safe and consistent way to treat problem areas, patients should be aware that liposuction is not a solution for excess or sagging skin, or cellulite. Depending on your desires, your plastic surgeon may suggest additional procedures to help you reach your full aesthetic goals.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM YOUR CONSULTATION

During your consultation, your plastic surgeon will review your medical history, including any known allergies or previous surgeries, to determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction. A board-certified plastic surgeon will review the entire process of liposuction with you, including recovery time and potential associated risks. If you have any questions about the procedure, you should not hesitate to ask during your consultation.

HOW LIPOSUCTION IS PERFORMED

Liposuction is performed through small incisions that, whenever possible, are placed in well-hidden areas of the body. After general anesthesia is administered and the incisions are made in the target areas, a thin hollow tube (cannula) is inserted to loosen excess fat. This technique uses a controlled motion to dislodge the fat deposits, which are then suctioned out of the body through the cannula.

Once the desired results are achieved, the incisions are closed with sutures and elastic bandages are applied to the site, both to reduce swelling and to compress the skin to the new contour.

RECOVERY AFTER LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure, so in the majority of cases patients are allowed to return home the same day of surgery after recovering from anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will prescribe pain medications and give you specific instructions for care of the surgical site.

Some swelling and bruising is normal in the weeks that follow liposuction; it may take a few months to fully dissipate and for the newly-shaped contours to develop, but results will be apparent shortly after the procedure is performed.

POTENTIAL RISKS OF LIPOSUCTION

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks associated with liposuction, which may include:

  • Bruising and swelling
  • Changes in skin sensation
  • Asymmetrical contours
  • Infection
  • Fluid accumulation

To minimize risk, you should always ensure that your plastic surgeon is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and that the procedure is being performed at an accredited hospital or surgical facility.

HOW MUCH DOES LIPOSUCTION COST?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the national average cost for liposuction in the United States is approximately $3,200. However, this figure will fluctuate depending on your location, the surgeon performing the procedure, the surgical center at which it is carried out, and your aesthetic goals. Your plastic surgeon should review the entire costs for liposuction during your consultation.

A 1 year follow-up on a patient who wanted a rhinoplasty to remove the dorsal hump and improve the aesthetics of her tip. In this case the dorsal hump was removed, the nose made straighter, the tip refined, and the tip rotated and projected more. Her new nose fits her face without overtly changing the ethnic features of her face. Posted with permission.

Happy for this patient who underwent full facial rejuvenation surgery, which included a brow lift, upper/lower blepharoplasty, facelift, neck lift, and facial fat transfer. How much younger does he look now? Posted with permission.

One year follow-up on a #BBL or Brazilian butt lift. As you can see from the post-operative photos, the fat that is transferred stays and is permanent. Posted with permission.

Male patient in his late 60’s who was able to turn back the clock after undergoing a #facelift, #neck lift, #blepharoplasty, and #fattransfer. Pay close attention to the “bags” underneath the eyes, the jawline, and neck. The scars have healed nicely and are inconspicuous even with short hair. In the post-operative photos, the patient has maintained his natural facial features and anatomy, but just looks like a more youthful version of himself. Posted with permission.

#Primaryrhinoplasty to fix the dorsal hump, droopy tip, and crooked nose. In the post-operative photos, the patient has a nice dorsal profile on side view, the tip has been lifted, and the nose is straight. To evaluate how straight the nose is, look at the dorsal aesthetic lines on bird’s eye view and follow the two light reflexes along the dorsum. Posted with permission.

Relatively small surgeries can yield big changes. This patient wanted to improve the contour of her chin and the overall profile of her face. The patient’s lower 1/3 of the face and chin were short and set back. Additionally, the patient had asymmetries of the chin and jawline that she wanted improved. The patient underwent a #slidinggenioplasty to achieve these goals where the chin was cut and mobilized forward and downward. In the post-operative photos, you can see a more aesthetic and balanced facial profile. The advantages of a #genioplasty over a #chinimplant are that the chin can be moved in numerous planes, the advancement can be more significant, and asymmetries can be addressed.

This patient had a bilateral constricted ear deformity where the top portion of the ear folds over the rest of the ear. In this deformity, the ear appears shorter in height and there are abnormalities of the outer and inner folds of the ear. In the postoperative photos you can visualize the ear is longer in height, the helical rim or outer portion of the ear is lifted up and the antihelical fold or inner portion of the ear is more defined.

Challenging #breastaugmentation case where the patient had asymmetries of the breasts in terms of size, shape, and position on the chest. The patient underwent a breast augmentation with #gelimplants with a larger size in the left breast to balance the size difference.
