Liposuction surgery is becoming increasingly popular among men. The possibilities offered by the advancements in the cosmetic techniques and technology, and the understanding of how a safe and simple procedure can improve their lifestyle and even career prospects are the reasons for this trend.
While hormonal changes cause drastic changes in a woman’s appearance, men are not likely to experience such changes and are supposed to age gracefully. However, as maintaining a trim physique becomes more and more challenging, men are now utilizing the possibilities offered by liposuction to contour the body. This plastic surgery procedure is designed to remove excess fatty deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Men opt for lipolysis to improve love handles, abdominal fat deposits, and the chest.
According to British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, liposuction recorded a 41% rise in 2013 from the previous year. With 554 men undergoing the treatment – an increase of 28% from 2012 – it was the fourth most popular procedure among men. The scenario was similar in the U.S. Statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that men accounted for 23,558 liposuction procedures in 2013 with an increase of 3% from 2012, making it the third most popular procedure among men.
Laser liposuction is a great option for men looking to achieve six-pack abs for a more masculine appearance as well as to contour the face and jawline. Minimally invasive technologies such as SmartLipo Triplex liposuction have contributed to the popularity of body contouring surgery and facelifts among men. SmartLipo uses local anesthesia and bleeding, swelling, pain and scarring are minimal. Moreover, downtime is minimal and recovery much faster than with traditional liposuction techniques.
The key to successful treatment lies in finding the right plastic surgeon, a qualified and experienced professional at an accredited plastic surgery facility.
