Liposuction is a popular treatment that eliminates stubborn, excess fat when other options have failed. Dr. Gregory T. Mesna is proud to offer liposuction for men at his Minneapolis, MN, office, to help the male population enhance their body’s contours as well as their confidence. Dr. Mesna is a highly qualified surgeon who puts the comfort, safety, and satisfaction of his patients above all else. He excels at achieving attractive, natural-looking results.
Why Choose Liposuction?
In most cases, men want to remove excess fat from the area around their waists – what are commonly referred to as “love handles.” Often, even with rigorous dieting and exercise, men are unable to eliminate excess weight around the belly.
The waistline is a common area for fat accumulation, and it is also the most difficult area to trim down. Liposuction is a great solution for men who desire a sculpted waistline but have been unable to achieve one through dieting and exercise.
Liposuction can treat a wide range of problem areas, and you can discuss all of the areas you would like to enhance and refine with Dr. Mesna during your consultation.
The Liposuction Procedure
Your treatment will begin with a very small incision near the area you wish to trim. Dr. Mesna strives to maintain the highest level of comfort for his patients, and you can expect to feel very little pain. An anesthetic will be administered before the procedure, and Dr. Mesna will not proceed until you have assured him of your comfort.
When you are ready, he will make the incisions to gently remove precise amounts of fat and tissue to achieve your desired results. It is important to remember that liposuction is not intended for weight loss, but rather for contouring the body by removing small fat pockets that simply will not go away. Once the fat has been removed, the incisions will be dressed, and you will need to wear a compression garment for about two weeks.

You will most likely experience swelling and soreness for up to two weeks. After this time, you should be fully healed, and you can enjoy your toned new physique.
Because liposuction is not intended for weight loss, you must be in good general health and not obese in order to be a candidate – there are other options for massive weight loss that Dr. Mesna can recommend during your consultation.
Before receiving liposuction, you should be within 30 percent of your ideal weight, in order to maintain firm, elastic skin with good muscle tone. You must not have a life-threatening illness that may be worsened by liposuction, nor should you be taking certain medications that would complicate the procedure.
In order to receive liposuction, you must either be a non-smoker, or willing to stop smoking for the entire duration of the procedure and the healing process. It is very important to set realistic and specific goals, and be committed to maintaining your new physique.
