Even with proper diet and regular exercise, some areas of the body may still retain excess fat. One of the options for body contouring that removes the fat is male liposuction. Many men find that this approach is one of the most practical and timely ways to deal with those problem areas. Here are some things you should know about the procedure, including what to expect afterward.
Understanding the Basics
The process for male liposuction involves creating one or a few surgical openings allowing for the insertion of a small tube. This tube is normally referred to as a cannula. The opposite end of the cannula is connected to a vacuuming device. A professional moves the tube around and essentially vacuums the excess fat tissue out of the body. Once the process is completed, the openings are sealed and the healing process begins.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Essentially, this type of procedure can be performed on any area of the body where excess fat is present. Men often have male liposuction performed on a few specific areas. One of the more common areas for liposuction is the abdomen. When exercise and diet don’t get rid of love handles or a slight paunch in the front, it’s possible to use this procedure to remove the fat. Once the healing is complete, what’s left is a flat stomach and a slimmer middle area.
Men with enlarged breasts may also undergo this procedure. It may be used alone or in conjunction with a more invasive procedure. In either scenario, the goal is to remove fat from the breast area and leave the male with less fat around the breasts and more defined chest muscles. Along with liposuction, it may be necessary to surgically alter or align the nipples for a more natural appearance.
The pelvic area is another possibility for the male. When there is fat stored directly above the genitalia, the appearance may be an issue. Choosing to remove the excess fat flattens the upper part of the pelvic area and provides a more appealing appearance.
Will the Results Last?
While male liposuction does remove excess fat, you still need to follow a balanced diet and get exercise several times a week. Failing to take proper care of yourself could mean that more fat is deposited in the areas treated with liposuction. With proper maintenance, you can expect to keep the same body contours for a long time.
