Streamlining your physique is what liposuction is all about, and men are using this procedure in increasing numbers to improve their contours. Liposuction procedures for men can remove unwanted excess belly fat, love handles, man-boobs, and back fat, and improve muscle definition.
The results in men can be quite striking. The way fat is deposited on the male body means when it is gone from certain areas, it is very noticeable, in particular, the belly and chest area. Men are naturally more muscular than women, particularly those who work out, so accentuating form can be achieved if stubborn fatty deposits remain. Liposuction can improve on workouts by removing problem areas and creating increased muscle definition.
If you can pinch it, you can lipo it
Beer guts and pot-bellies
Liposuction can’t remove deep fat deposits, but it can remove fat from outside layers. That means you can reduce abdominal fat deposits and almost completely remove a gut.
Love handles and flanks
Fat deposits on the hips and around the waist can be removed, resulting in a slimmer waistline and more masculine appearance. Having slimmer hips increases the appearance of the shoulders and chest, effectively adjusting the perceived ratio.
Back fat can remain despite exercise. Any excess fat on the back causing bulges or overhang can be reshaped using liposuction.
Liposuction on the chin and neck can recontour the shape of the face. The fat removal is typically much less than might be removed from other parts of the body and the procedure minor. As we age, fat deposits in different areas, and can linger despite our best efforts. Liposculpting can offer the chin and neck area a refreshed profile.
Fat deposits in the thighs that stubbornly resist exercise and a healthy diet can be removed by liposuction in men.
Some men get excess arm fat or fat deposits in the arms that can be removed using liposuction techniques. This procedure can enhance the appearance of muscles in the upper arm (biceps and triceps).
Man-boobs and gynaecomastia
Breast tissue developing in men is not uncommon, particularly when a man carries extra fat, since fat cells convert testosterone to oestrogen. Liposuction can remove excess male breast tissue, leaving a regular-sized chest and defined pectoral muscles.
Gynaecomastia is a medical condition whereby men develop excess glandular breast tissue due to a hormonal imbalance. If gynaecomastia is diagnosed, Medicare rebates may be available for liposuction procedures.
