Male liposuction for cosmetic reasons

in Liposuction

In the past, cosmetic surgical procedures like male liposuction was only associated with women. However today, men too consider undergoing liposuction and other cosmetic procedures to refine their appearance.

When compared to female liposuction, male liposuction is relatively more expensive, because of three reasons. The first reason is that fat in men is more fibrous than a woman's fat, and is thus more difficult and time consuming to remove. Secondly, men usually have liposuction in body areas that are more fibrous like abdomen, love handles and chest. Thirdly, men are usually larger in size than women and thus their liposuction entails a larger area than female liposuction.

Common areas for male liposuction

There are various male liposuction targets n the body. It is mainly used for removing love handles or extra fat in the abdominal region as men find it difficult losing weight here, no matter how much exercise and diet they do.

The abdomen is another common area for liposuction as it is difficult to tone. Male liposuction is not limited to the body; men also use liposuction to slim and rejuvenate their neck, chin, jowls and faces. The removal of fat from these areas make you look younger and well rested.

Treating male breasts

Male liposuction is also commonly used for treating gynecomastia or the enlargement of male breasts. Gynecomastia is associated with hormonal imbalance where there is an accumulation of fat or glandular tissue in the breast region.

When used with other techniques, liposuction effectively reduces the size and volume of male breasts. Moreover, the incisions used for the process are so small that scarring is minimal and virtually non-existent.

Though male liposuction helps in male breast reduction, it is important that the surgeon first determines the reason for large breasts. If the enlarged breast is composed of mainly fatty tissue, then liposuction is the best procedure for reducing its size.

However if the breasts are filled with glandular tissue, then hormonal or medication therapies has to be used for breast reduction. Moreover, in case of oddly shaped or asymmetrical breasts, it is better to check for tumors with a mammogram, before undergoing any treatment. Based on its results, the physician will be able to decide if male liposuction is indeed the best treatment option to use for male breast reduction.
