Liposuction is now one of the most common cosmetic procedures requested by men and, in general, men are excellent candidates for the procedure. They usually have good skin tone with well-defined localized areas that need treatment. Areas such as the neck and love handles that are resistant to regular diet and exercise yet can make you appear older and heavier than you really are.
Using tumescent liposuction to trim these areas is a safe, simple and very effective way to improve your overall appearance as well as self-confidence. As men tend to have a thicker dermis (the undersurface of the skin) and a more fibrous fatty layer, liposuction can be a little more difficult to perform. However, for the same reasons, in experienced hands men often get the best results of all.
While experience is important for all cosmetic surgery this is particularly true for liposuction in men where a different set of cannulas and a modified technique is needed to optimize results. Areas that we commonly treat in men include the neck and jowls, chest, abdomen and love handles.
