LIPOSUCTION FOR MEN
IN NEWPORT BEACH
TUMESCENT LIPOSUCTION, SUCTION-ASSISTED LIPECTOMY
Liposuction is a procedure which removes fat from the body. It is one of the most popular procedures in the field of plastic surgery because of its simplicity and effectiveness. There are many different techniques and methods for liposuction, which can be performed on many areas of the body.
AM I A CANDIDATE FOR LIPOSUCTION?
Any patient with excess fat can be a candidate for liposuction. Liposuction is especially effective for:
- Persistent areas of fat which do not respond to diet and exercise (so-called “diet-resistant fat”)
- Fat zones which are disproportionate or undesired (such as “love handles”)
The areas of the body most commonly treated with liposuction are torso, abdomen, hips, waist, flanks, thighs, inner knees, and ankles. Liposuction is also used to remove a “double-chin.” For men, liposuction is used to eliminate male breasts, also known as a procedure called gynecomastia.
The majority of our patients are close to an average, healthy weight and desire permanent contour changes. Patients with average weight, localized fat collections, and healthy elastic skin are the best candidates for liposuction.
Due to aging or familial predisposition, certain areas of the body become more prominent, often creating the “spare tire” in males. Although people of many ages and body weights may be candidates for liposuction, Suction Assisted Lipectomy (SAL) generates the best results in younger patients, non-smokers, darker skin types, and non sun-worshipers.
I can see my neckline again. It makes me very happy to look in the mirror each morning and look younger. The staff, office and surgery center are great. It was a pleasant experience all around. I would highly recommend Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery.Read Testimonials
Obesity, cellulite, stretch marks, a history of “yo-yo” weight gain/loss, or loose, sagging, inelastic skin, are problems which would tend toward poor results. In fact, these problems may be worsened by liposuction and may be best addressed by other procedures such as a leg or body lift (e.g. tummy tuck) to improve the patient’s appearance. Unfortunately, many individuals performing liposuction are not trained in other techniques of body contouring and may not have the experience to recognize that a different procedure (such as a tummy tuck) may provide a better result for the patient. Suction Assisted Lipectomy (SAL) may be used in conjunction with other body contouring procedures, such as breast reduction, tummy tuck, thigh lift, or face lift.
Patients should be aware that liposuction is a body-contouring procedure, not a weight loss option. The standard diet and exercise strategy is much more effective for weight loss than liposuction.
