Liposuction is one of our most popular male procedures. When done correctly, it’s capable of removing excess body fat and sculpting the athletic physique that you’ve been unable to achieve through diet and exercise alone.
Liposuction is designed to contour and refine the body. The surgery involves inserting a cannula beneath the surface of the skin and moving it back and forth to break up and remove unwanted fat cells.
Safe for virtually any area of the body, our male clients often choose to contour the:
It’s important to note that liposuction is a body contouring procedure – it is not a form of weight loss surgery. As such, it is not ideal for men who have a substantial amount of weight to lose.
The best candidates for liposuction are men who are close to their ideal body weight and with good skin tone, but struggle with localized deposits of fat that are not responsive to diet and exercise. During your initial consultation, we will evaluate the areas you’d like to contour and help you determine if liposuction is in your best interest.
Your liposuction procedure will be done under general or local anesthesia, depending on your needs and preferences. Before we begin extracting fat, we will inject a special fluid into your unwanted volume to numb the area and prevent blood loss.
We will then create a small incision in your skin and insert the cannula beneath the surface. We will gently move the cannula back and forth to break up and remove excess fat cells. The entire process can take thirty minutes to a few hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. Once we have sculpted your ideal physique, we will close the incisions and apply a compression garment to ensure optimal healing.
Liposuction can transform your body – accentuating your underlying muscles, sculpting your features and enhancing your overall appearance.
Some of these effects will be apparent immediately, but they will be slightly obscured by post-surgical swelling and bruising. Your final results will emerge in several months, once the area has fully healed.
If a healthy diet and regular exercise aren’t enough to achieve your ideal physique, liposuction can help. To begin planning your procedure, please contact our Del Mar or Coronado office today and schedule a consultation.
