Liposuction to Improve the Male Physique
Like it or not, we live in a society that puts a lot of emphasis on appearances and first impressions. These standards do not just apply to women, but men as well. Men are often just as eager as women to maintain a fit, youthful, and attractive appearance. However, even with a strict diet and good exercise routine, it can be difficult to achieve your desired look. That is why Dr. Gregory T. Mesna offers plastic surgery procedures to help males achieve their aesthetic goals. Liposuction can get rid of unwanted fat deposits, making it especially popular among our male patients. Male liposuction allows our Minneapolis patients to achieve a trim, toned figure that gives them a healthy and masculine appearance.
Toning the Body
Liposuction is easily one of the most popular procedures among our male patients. This is because liposuction can eliminate excess fat in order to help men tone and sculpt their body. Another reason for liposuction’s popularity is the fact that it is so versatile. Liposuction requires very small incisions and, therefore, can be safely performed on just about any area of the body. Below are just some of the many ways in which male liposuction can enhance a patient’s appearance:
- Remove fat from the midsection to create a toned, six-pack appearance for the abs
- Trim the flanks to eliminate the appearance of love handles
- Sculpt the arms and/or legs for a more muscular appearance
- Get rid of the appearance of a double chin by removing localized fat deposits from the chin and neck
- Tone the chest
Whatever a patient’s areas of concern may be, Dr. Mesna can personalize liposuction treatment to get rid of unwanted fat and create a more toned, fit, and masculine physique.
The Liposuction Procedure
In essence, liposuction allows Dr. Mesna to break up stubborn fat deposits and then suction them from the body through a small, hollow surgical instrument called a cannula. The procedure requires a series of small incisions that are strategically placed to minimize scarring and maximize results. There are several techniques that Dr. Mesna considers for the liposuction procedure, including:
- Tumescent liposuction: This technique involves the injection of a tumescent solution, which numbs the treatment area, minimizes bleeding, and causes the fatty tissue to swell.
- Smartlipo™: Smartlipo™ uses laser energy to break down fat cells. This procedure also causes tissue coagulation, which makes it easier for the tissue to shrink to new body contours.
- Ultrasound-assisted liposuction: With this technique, Dr. Mesna uses ultrasound energy to liquefy fat cells. This makes it easier to remove fat cells from the body.
- Power-assisted liposuction: Power-assisted liposuction relies on vibration and a back-and-forth movement to break up fat cells so that they can be suctioned from the body.
- Dr. Mesna will choose the surgical technique that is best suited to each patient’s unique needs and the area of the body being treated.
