Lipoplasty for men is an ideal alternative for fat removal and body contouring Lipoplasty is one of the most commonly performed treatments in our Cary NC office for men. Similar to most kinds of cosmetic treatments, the procedure originally gained popularity with women. Only recently has the Lipoplasty process begun to gain traction with male patients.
Although men tend to focus on different body parts than women, the procedure for men doesn’t differ from that of Lipoplasty for women. Even so, finding an office and medical professional, with experience performing Lipoplasty for men, can be somewhat difficult. Our Cary office has treated dozens of male patients for a number of body areas – love handles are popular as is the back area. Obviously, the stomach/abdomen area does get a fair share of requests. Men who are working out regularly and have developed a great six-pack sometimes need just a little help in letting them really show – and Lipoplasty can really help!
There aren’t many procedural differences between Lipoplasty for men and women. Regardless of the patient’s gender, the cosmetic surgeon will use a Lipoplasty tool applied directly to the skin. This device emits radio-frequency and heat energy and will actually melt the fat cells. Patients will frequently experience some redness and mild soreness after the procedure but this will normally subside with a day or two.
While the treatments usually will need to be repeated a few times – usually from 4-6 treatments spaced approximately a week apart for substantial results, our Lipoplasty patients can usually get right back to their normal schedule immediately afterwards. Side effects like soreness can be easily controlled with over-the-counter medication and will present little if any issue.
