Regain Confidence with Liposuction for Men
No matter how often you hit the gym or work out at home, you may have a beer gut or love handles that won’t go away. Many men also collect fatty tissue around their pectoral muscles and abdomen as they age. But there’s no need to hide under a t-shirt when hitting the beach.
Cosmetic surgery for men is gaining traction and shaping the way men think about their bodies. It is no longer the realm of women looking for breast augmentation or tummy tucks – and it has nothing to do with cosmetics and makeup. Rather, men are taking advantage of simple in-office procedures to reduce excess fat or tissue that weight loss or workouts don’t remove.
Liposuction an increasingly popular cosmetic surgery for men
Men’s muscular bodies are well suited for liposuction. Generally, men store fat on their abdomens or upper hips – creating beer guts or love handles. Fat also collects on the chest, creating the appearance of swollen breasts. Liposuction can remove these stubborn fat deposits, but it is not to be used as a substitute for losing weight.
Dr. Alan Greenberg sculpts your body by using liposuction to remove excess fat. He utilizes a tumescent solution – which includes saline, lidocaine and adrenalin – to plump and firm your fatty tissue. Then he inserts a thin cannula (tube) through a small incision to vacuum out the fat between your muscles and skin.
Bring back your pecs with gynecomastia surgery
Some men are self-conscious about their bodies when they develop excess tissue in their breasts for any number of reasons. These over-developed or enlarged breasts can be the result of hormones, heredity, weight gain or certain drug use, and this abnormality can affect men at any age. This common condition is called gynecomastia and can affect one or both breasts. It commonly presents as:
- Excess glandular tissue
- Localized fat
- Excess skin around the breast
Gynecomastia surgery, sometimes called reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure by which Dr. Greenberg surgically removes the excess breast tissue or uses a combination of liposuction for fat and surgical tissue removal. Depending on the individual’s build, he may need to decrease the size of the areola or reposition the nipple so that it appears natural for a male physique.
“Awake” anesthesia offers more control
You will remain awake and aware during liposuction and gynecomastia procedures and feel little discomfort or pain. Tumescent anesthesia and/or iv sedation is an improvement over traditional general anesthesia because you experience:
- Faster recovery
- Less pain after surgery
- Less bruising and bleeding
- Fewer side effects
- Lower surgical costs
