Why Do Liposuction for Men?
• When fat has accumulated in “congenital” or resistant areas and fails to respond to diet, slimming exercises and weight loss measures;
• When the fat is concentrated on the stomach, flanks, hips, buttocks, thighs, ankles, chin, cheeks and neck and is resistant to exercise and weight loss measures;
• When a kick-start to a weight loss program is needed;
• For love handles not responding to diet;
• When the neck hangs or has lost its sharp angle;
• When you want an athletic look to your stomach;
• When you are overweight and need some help towards a healthier lifestyle;
• If large breasts are a concern in a male, e.g. if the patient suffers from feminine looking breasts. Tumescent liposuction or another technique can be used in these cases.
The Liposculpture Technique
Liposculpture involves the sculpting of the body at the same time as suctioning fat out. It is particularly used when treating outer thighs and buttocks to produce the natural flow of the body silhouette. It takes years of experience to be able to understand exactly the amount of fat that should be removed, and the surgical expertise involved in this procedure. Firstly, our surgeons will mark out the areas on your body to be suctioned. This allows for an accurate targeting of fat. The surgeon will then photograph these marks for later reference. A patient can choose to be awake and just receive a pethidine injection or be asleep with the light general anaesthetic. Tumescent fluid consists of a combination of saline solution, local anaesthetic and adrenalin. The fluid is infiltrated into the areas being treated via small incisions around the marked area. This technique makes for much easier fat drainage, less or no blood loss, better anaesthesia during the procedure and afterwards, and fewer post-operative bruises. The excess fatty tissue is then removed. This is achieved by means of a cannula connected to a suction device (vacuum or large syringe), the cannula is introduced into the fat situated under the skin through the same small incisions (2-4 mm) made close to the target treatment area, it’s then pushed through the fat until it reaches the area in question. The cannula is then moved about so that the fat is broken up and suctioned.
