Liposuction for Male Patients
By Patricia Berbari on August 29, 2015
Sometimes men and women feel like they come from two different planets, but despite their many differences, there are also a lot of things that men and women have in common. One of these is the desire to look and feel their best. Unfortunately, another thing commonly shared among men and women is the inability to get rid of stubborn fat deposits. No matter how diligently a person works out and no matter how careful they may be to avoid certain foods, there are some pockets of fat that just don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction can remove fat deposits from the body to give patients the trimmer and more sculpted figure they desire. Dr. Patricia Berbari offers male liposuction at her Gatineau practice to help male patients address common areas of concern so that they can achieve a more toned and masculine figure.
Male Liposuction Candidates
Ideal candidates for liposuction are those who have areas of the body that lack definition due to the presence of excess fat. These patients should be in good overall health and not carry excessive weight. Liposuction can help to tone and sculpt the figure, but it is not a weight-loss solution.
In the past few years, liposuction has become a popular procedure among our male patients. Some male problem areas that are commonly treated by Dr. Berbari through a liposuction procedure include the following:
- The flanks: More commonly referred to as “love handles,” the flanks are common trouble zones for males. Excess fat around this area can be difficult to hide, and can prevent men from achieving the fit physique that they desire.
- The abs: That elusive six-pack appearance is even more difficult to achieve when there is excess fat around a man’s midsection.
- The chest: Excess fat around the chest can really impact a man’s self-esteem. Excess fat in this area not only prevents men from achieving the firm, toned chest that they prefer, but it can also make men feel less masculine.
- The jawline: While liposuction is popular for enhancing a man’s physique, it can also be performed on the lower face and neck. Excess fat around the jawline creates the appearance of a double chin and makes it difficult to achieve a strong, firm, masculine jawline.
Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that is performed using local or general anesthetic. Dr. Berbari will begin treatment by making a series of small incisions around the treatment area. Through these incisions, Dr. Berbari will inject a saline solution that contains anesthetic and adrenalin. This solution makes it easier to break up fat and reduce bleeding. Finally, a cannula will be inserted into the incisions and fat will be broken up and removed from the body.
Benefits of Liposuction
Once patients have recovered from liposuction treatment, they will be able to enjoy several benefits. These include a tighter, toned figure, helping men to attain the masculine physique that they desired.
