Liposuction for Men

OVERVIEW

Aydin Plastic Surgery offers several different options of liposuction for men and women, which can help make those stubborn pockets of fat go away. Men commonly have liposuction in the abdomen area to remove unwanted pockets of fat, which keep them from having that trim appearance. Sometimes, these pockets of fat stubbornly refuse to respond to exercise or changes in diet.

These areas are typically localized on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, even under the chin, and they’re not going anywhere. Liposuction can help as a minimally-invasive procedure by our double board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Bill Aydin in Paramus, NJ. Fat pockets are suctioned out through a thin tube called a cannula to achieve a slimmer contour. Only small incisions are needed and they will not require stitches. Dr. Aydin utilizes the tumescent technique, where an anesthetic solution is first injected to minimize pain and firm the fat while making it easier to remove. The accuracy and ease of liposuction has increased dramatically throughout the years, and it is a safe procedure to get the results you want.

Fast-forward to today, Dr. Aydin utilizes the tumescent technique, where an anesthetic solution is first injected to minimize pain and firm the fat, making it easier to remove. The accuracy and ease of liposuction has increased dramatically, and the recovery has become much less involved.

SURGICAL TECHNIQUE

TUMESCENT “SUPER-WET”
Tumescent liposuction, known as the “Super-Wet” approach, is a suction-assisted (SAL) technique that uses a solution and power-aided motor to help remove stubborn fat. The surgeon injects the solution, made of saline, lidocaine and epinephrine (to control bleeding), into the problem areas. The surgeon then inserts the cannula attached to the motor to remove fat cells from the body at a controlled speed. The motor helps surgeons remove anywhere from several ounces to a few pounds of fat.

ULTRASOUND-ASSISTED (UAL)

Another surgical technique commonly used is the ultrasound-assisted (UAL), or ultrasonic, approach. Surgeons perform this dual process on denser areas of fat, such as in the thighs and stomach. During this technique, ultrasound waves loosen and melt fat into a liquid. Surgeons then use the cannula to extract the solution. This surgical method is more popular among men wanting more defined and contoured muscles.

LASER-ASSISTED (LAL)

Laser-assisted liposuction uses laser technology on specified areas of fat to burst energy that will loosen and liquefy the fat for removal. LAL liposuction includes brands such as SmartLipo, SlimLipo, Lipolite Laser Liposculpture, LipoLite, and ProLipo PLUS.
