For men who are dealing with stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, Liposuction may be able to help.

What is Liposuction?

A Liposuction in Boston is done to eliminate unwanted and stubborn areas of fat that diet and exercise cannot eliminate alone. Liposuction is a body plastic surgery procedure most commonly done on the abdomen, flanks, love handles, and breasts.

How is Liposuction done?

Liposuction for men is done the same way liposuction for a woman is done; only it targets different areas of the body. Laser Liposuction is the technique used, which purposes a laser fiber that generates heat, liquefying the fat before liposuction is used. This creates easier fat removal, and can even cause skin tightening in men due to the thicker dermis of male skin.

First, the treatment area will be filled with a tumescent liquid to shrink blood vessels and cause numbing. The laser fiber with then be applied, liquefying the fat. Cannulas or thin suction tubes will then be inserted into small incisions to carefully remove the liquefied fat.

What should I expect during recovery from Liposuction?
