Liposuction for Men
From Dr. William Palin
Liposuction is becoming an increasingly popular procedure among men. For men, liposuction is typically done around the abdomen, on the chin and the neck and around the waistline, where men tend to accumulate fat deposits as they age. Some men don’t even need to age before they accumulate these fat deposits; their body just tends to deposit fat in those places from the start.
This procedure involves using a vacuum device to suck the fat cells out from underneath the skin. It’s important to keep in mind what this procedure is actually designed to do and what it is not designed to do.
The principal benefit of liposuction is that it can get rid of fat deposits that just refuse to go. If you’re very active, run several miles every day, make every effort to eat exactly how every physician would recommend that you eat and do everything else you can to take care of yourself, you may still find yourself with stubborn fat deposits that you cannot get rid of.
This is what liposuction is designed to address. Dr. Palin can use this procedure to get at those fat deposits, physically remove the fat cells and restore a leaner, more youthful appearance to that area.
What It Does Not Do
Liposuction is in no way a substitute for taking care of yourself through regular exercise and a healthy diet. This is not a procedure that is designed to provide instant and effortless weight loss. In fact, this procedure will offer the best results to people who are already in good physical condition and who just have a few problem areas that they want addressed.
This is a surgical procedure, so you’ll want to consult with Dr. Palin to discuss your options and to see which type of liposuction – or other treatment – is appropriate for you.
