Male Liposuction Northern Virginia
Liposuction is the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure performed on men in America today. Ideal candidates have firm skin, are of normal weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that they want removed.
During male liposuction, fat deposits are most commonly removed from the neck, belly, and/or love handles. However, fat deposits can be removed from almost any area on the body.
The liposuction procedure works by removing these fat deposits using suction. During traditional liposuction, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted through a tiny incision made in your skin. Your fat is then suctioned out through this tube while Virginia cosmetic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman moves the tube around underneath the skin to target specific fat deposits.
- Neck area: Fat deposits in the neck are suctioned through a small incision made underneath your chin and/or behind your ear. The pad of fat beneath your chin can be removed and, because some adhesions form, there may be the added benefit of your skin tightening in this particular area.
- Loin and abdomen areas: To remove the fat deposits in these areas, incisions are placed in several locations around the area to allow for a crisscross pattern of suctioning. The incisions are very small and will be difficult to see once they have healed.
The VASER® liposuction procedure is a form of ultrasonic liposuction. It works by breaking up and emulsifying your fat in order to remove it. This technique is beneficial because it leaves your surrounding tissue, blood vessels, and nerves largely unharmed. This is generally described as the treatment of choice for gynecomastia (male breast) reduction.
Male liposuction is best performed on patients who are aware of both the benefits and risks, and who have realistic expectations about the outcome.
