Everyone wants to see their hard work pay off. That is why when you are eating healthy and exercising regularly and still have stubborn pockets of fat, it can be very frustrating. Liposuction reshapes and slims certain areas of the body by eliminating excess fat pockets. Overall, this improves body contours and proportions for a more confident you.
Liposuction can be used to treat many areas of the body, including the cheeks, chin, neck, chest, upper arms, back, abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, calves, and ankles.
Men who would like to achieve a slimmer body contour or have certain areas that seem out of proportion with the rest of their figure can often benefit from liposuction. Ideal candidates will have good skin elasticity (meaning that they do not have sagging skin) and are at or near their desired body weight. It is important to understand that liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment and should not be used on patients who are obese.

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that is performed using local anesthesia, IV sedation, or general anesthesia. This procedure is performed through small incisions. A hollow tube called a cannula is inserted through the incision to dislodge fat cells, which are then suctioned out of the body. There is a selection of different liposuction techniques that can be used today. These include:
This technique involves using a tumescent solution, which minimizes bleeding and discomfort during the procedure.
Ultrasound energy is used to help break apart fatty tissue and loosen it, allowing for easier removal.
This technique uses laser energy to help loosen fat cells for easier removal.
A vacuum device is used to help remove the fat.
After your liposuction procedure, you may experience swelling, bruising, or discomfort which will dissipate with time. You may need to wear a special compression garment to help reduce swelling and support your new body contours. Our team will provide you with specific recovery instructions to ensure that your recover smoothly.
To preserve liposuction results it is important that you maintain a stable weight. This is because significant weight gain can lead to changes in your body shape.
