Liposuction: Not Just for the Ladies

Liposuction for menLast year liposuction was the number one pick for men looking for surgical cosmetic enhancement. Not only was this procedure the most popular, but it won by a landslide with almost 52,000 procedures performed on male patients during the year. Why are so many men choosing liposuction? The answer is simple: they want to look their best. Let’s take a quick look at what liposuction can do for you.

A Supplement to a Healthy Lifestyle

The best liposuction results are achieved on men that are already living a healthy lifestyle. Liposuction isn’t an alternative to the gym or healthy eating, but rather a supplement. It can be used to shape, sculpt, and refine the body as it removes stubborn fat deposits. This stubborn fat often sticks around even after your best efforts. Liposuction gently removes it, permanently. For many men liposuction is one of the most effective ways to achieve the sculpted look they’re after.

Target Problem Areas- Wherever They May Be

Liposuction isn’t just for the belly. It can be used to target problem areas across the body. Dr. Matarasso uses liposuction to treat excess fat in a variety of areas on his male patients including:

  • Male Breasts (gynecomastia)
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Arms
  • Waist
  • Knees and Calves
  • Neck

If you’re interested in learning more about liposuction, talk with Dr. Matarasso. He can help you decide if liposuction can help you achieve your goals and which areas would most benefit from treatment.

Precision and Accuracy with Tumescent Liposuction

Dr. Matarasso uses tumescent liposuction in his practice, a special type of liposuction that injects anesthesia right into the fat that will be removed. This anesthesia causes the fat to swell and firm allowing more fat removal with greater accuracy and precision. The anesthetic also constricts blood vessels for less blood loss during the procedure. This type of liposuction encourages quicker healing and less bruising and inflammation after surgery.

Many of our patients love tumescent liposuction for the quick recovery period. Many are able to return to work and regular activities after just a few days. The incisions used are very small which minimizes scarring and healing times. If you don’t want people to know you’ve had liposuction, don’t tell them. They’ll just think your sculpted look is all natural.
