Liposuction for men: What are its aspects?

Liposuction for men: What are its aspects? Until recently, cosmetic surgery was considered to be a prerogative of women. But now more and more men are turning to the help of plastic surgeons to correct facial aspects and outlines of the body. The greatest numbers of calls from the representatives of the stronger sex are fixed about rhinoplasty or improvement of muscular relief. But in recent years male interest in liposuction has increased markedly.

Why would a man need liposuction?

Improper nutrition, sedentary lifestyle, lack of proper rest or hormonal changes often lead to the disruption of normal metabolism and result in the deposition of excess fat masses. Physiological aspects of the body lead to the fact that the fat on some areas of the body is hard enough to get rid of even with intensive training and dietary nutrition. The only way to quickly get rid of excess weight is surgical intervention.

Cosmetic surgery allows reducing the volume of adipose tissue, defining the muscular relief more clearly, correct the figure and improve the general health condition. Performing the procedure in male representatives requires a more scrupulous work of the surgeon. His tasks include not only the reduction of body volumes, but also the preservation of masculinity of the silhouette.

Liposuction of problem areas in men

The method of intervention is the same for both sexes. The doctor makes the marking of the problem zone and anaesthetizes the selected area. After the anesthesia took effect, punctures are made in the place of the fat accumulation. The fatty tissues are influenced by ultrasonic radiation and the destroyed cells are sucked via vacuum through special cannulas.

The main feature of the operation in men consists in places of sediment that are different from the female ones. Most often the men resort to the following:

  • Breast reduction surgery. Such a need arises in case of gynecomastia. The disease can be accompanied by the growth of glandular tissue or excessive fat deposits in the area of the breast and becomes the cause for the development of complexes or emergence of psychological problems;
  • Abdominal liposuction. Irrational nutrition and the use of beer containing a large number of phytoestrogens lead to the appearance of excess fat on the abdomen. It is enough problematic to get rid of it, therefore even the relief press can be lost;
  • Back liposuction. Ugly rollers on the back can be formed even in athletes. Liposuction can not only reduce the volume of fatty deposits, but remove sagging skin as well;
  • Liposuction of the chin. A clear, strong-handed chin is one of the main external attributes of masculinity. It is not possible to solve the problem of its sagging by means of exercises, therefore plasty can be necessary to return beautiful contours to a person.

Aspects of preparation for operation

Liposuction for men: What are its aspects? Preparation for surgery starts 1-2 weeks before it. First you should visit a plastic surgeon to discuss the problem, determine the scope of work and avoid contraindications. The laboratory tests, a number of diagnostic procedures (electrocardiogram, ultrasound examination) and examination at the endocrinologist, the therapist, the dentist and the phlebologist are appointed for this purpose.

In case of absence of risk factors the patient is recommended to perform the following:

  • Stop smoking, drinking alcohol;
  • Avoid visiting baths, saunas;
  • Stop taking anticoagulants;
  • Reduce the use of fatty, fried, high-calorie food. It is necessary to refuse reception of meal at all for 6-8 hours before carrying out of plasty.

The doctor can additionally appoint reception of antibacterial means for elimination of inflammatory processes.

Rehabilitation of men after liposuction

The bruises and swelling appear in the field of correction after the surgical procedure. It is necessary to adhere to the recommendations of the doctor clearly in the aftercare period to get rid from them as quickly as possible and enjoy the updated figure. The recommendations are as follows:

  • Wearing of compression underwear at the area of carrying out plasty;
  • Restriction of physical and social load for at least 14 days;
  • Avoiding visiting baths, saunas, and solariums;
  • Observance of the prescribed diet;
  • Abandoning of bad habits.

Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and physiotherapy treatments are also prescribed for early elimination of bruises and reduction of swelling.
