Liposuction, also known as, liposculpture, lipoplasty is an aesthetic surgical procedure that uses different types of cannulas to remove fatty tissue from different areas on the body. This distribution of fat is inherited, and is not necessarily dependent upon exercise or diet. Liposuction can significantly improve the appearance of these stubborn areas. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to target trouble areas. Dr. Vitolo in Brooklyn, is a specialist in male liposuction, liposculpture, and body contouring.

Male liposuction makes it possible to achieve “six pack” abdominal muscles. In fact, many men already have them, however, the muscle definition is hidden by stubborn abdominal fat. Excess fat in the abdominal area, love handles, and other areas can be genetic, and thus not responsive to diet and exercise. In many cases, the only way for a patient to remove these pockets of fat, while maintaining a healthy body weight, is through male liposuction.

The Procedure

In the external ultrasound liposuction technique, the fat is liquefied by ultrasonic wave, before the liposuction is begun, and the fat is removed as a liquid. The ultrasound also aids in the contraction of the skin.

General anesthesia is used for comfort during the duration of the liposuction procedure.

Right after the procedure, improved body contour will be apparent. Through sustained exercise and dieting, the loss of excess fat should be permanently maintained.

Post-Op

Recovery from liposuction is variable from one patient to another. Patients use a compression garment to help speed up the healing process. Following the procedure, most patients are able to move and walk easily. Generally, normal activities may be resumed the same day, and most patients can return to their exercise routine in 2 to 3 days.

Considerations

Liposuction is often portrayed as a simple weight loss solution; however, in reality this is not the case. While liposuction can eliminate pockets of fat in targeted areas, it is more effective for body contouring than significant weight loss. If you have excess skin in your abdominal region, an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) may be a better option for you.
