Men take pride in their appearance just as much as women do, and want to look as good as possible and maintain a youthful and healthy physique as they age. However, there is a limit to which diet and exercise can sculpt the body, and some extra pockets of fat are left behind. The good news is that this unwanted fat can be removed through cosmetic treatments such as laser liposuction. Leading plastic surgery facilities provide body sculpting for men in Manhattan and tailor the treatments to meet individual goals.
Reports indicate that male cosmetic procedures are on rise. The 2017 annual statistics report from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reveals that 28,000 male liposuction procedures were performed – a 5% increase from the previous year. While the increase demand for plastic surgery in 2017 was the highest among millennials, the latest ASPS report reveals that men of all ages are now going under the knife.
A well-defined physique enhances a man’s self–esteem, making him more confident and enthusiastic. With new technology and innovative techniques, there are a multitude of options for removing excess fat, muscle and skin and creating a more attractive physique. Liposuction in New York City performed using the advanced Smartlipo Triplex body contouring workstation can result in a sculpted physique that diet and exercise alone might fail to provide.
It is important to understand that liposuction is not an alternative to weight loss. It is a body contouring or sculpting procedure designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat from various regions of the body. If you are considering the procedure, it’s very important to know what it involves, which includes who is a good candidate. Men should optimize their health and weight before considering a body sculpting procedure such as liposuction. The ideal candidate for liposuction would meet the following criteria:
- Have an ideal body weight or a lower body mass index (BMI)
- Have pockets of fat that have proven resistant to diet and regular exercise
- Have good skin tone and elasticity
- Is healthy without any underlying medical conditions
- Does not smoke or is willing to give up smoking
Candidates who are not ideal for the procedure include:
- Obese men, who has a long way to achieve his ideal BMI and have yo-yo weight fluctuations.
- Men who are unhealthy and/or have medical problems that are not well controlled – such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or other conditions that require more urgent treatment
- Men who smoke, as nicotine in cigarettes or use any other nicotine delivery system (e.g., e-cigarettes or nicotine gum/patch) as these increases the risk of complications and decrease blood flow to the skin, and may delay healing.
Meeting the criteria for an ideal liposuction candidate is essential to achieve optimal results. In leading plastic surgery facilities, men can choose from procedures such as:
- Laser liposuction: Laser-assisted body sculpting using Smartlipo Triplex removes excess fat from various areas of the body to create a masculine physique. Body laser liposuction in New York City is an ideal option for love handles and chest and abdomen contouring.
- Abdominal etching and high def liposuction: These treatments involve removal of excess, loose skin and tighten the skin. They can provide men with the much coveted six pack abs. Candidates who have had tummy tuck surgery or liposuction can also consider abdominal etching to achieve a fitter and more chiseled appearance.
- Gynecomastia treatment: This procedure corrects oversized male breasts by removing excessive breast tissue build-up and improving chest contour to bring about a more masculine look.
The major advantage of Smartlipo laser liposuction is that it is minimally invasive and can help patients achieve their goals with minimal side effects and downtime.
