Male Liposuction On the Rise? See How Popular it is Now!

July 24th, 2017 | Body - Surgical

Male Liposuction has long been thought of as a procedure for women. However, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it is the fastest growing male plastic surgery procedure in the country. Throughout the last ten years, the number has increased by 100%.  Liposuction for men is tailored to address common problem areas in the male body to help create fitter, distinct, more masculine features. 

Why Consider Male Liposuction?

There are several reasons men may consider getting liposuction, including:

  • To remove stubborn fat deposits
  • To achieve a more physically fit appearance
  • As part of male breast reduction to treat gynecomastia
  • To improve self-image and confidence

Treatment areas:

Popular treatment areas for male liposuction include:

  • Neck and face
  • Lower and mid back
  • Ankles and calves
  • Waist
  • Arms and chest
  • Thighs and hips
  • Abdominal area

How It’s Done:

During the procedure, excess body fat is aspirated through a small cannula inserted through tiny incisions made on the surgical site. Then, the extracted fat is safely suctioned off from the body.

Above all, procedures are limited to safe volumes for each patient. We will ensure that only the appropriate amount of fat is extracted to minimize any risks and complications.

Liposuction is performed at our AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities)-accredited surgical facility. This state-of-the-art facility provides an excellent environment for a comfortable procedure with maximum safety.

Why the rise in popularity?

So, why the rise in popularity? The very reason may be as simple as the desire to exceed professionally. According to recent surveys, the popularity of liposuction among men comes from an inner drive to advance in their career. In regards to success, holding a senior position is not as important as it once was. Now, productivity and energy hold a much more critical role in desired positions. Both of these qualities are associated with youth and liveliness. Therefore, having a more youthful appearance is now more important than ever.

Top 5 most popular cosmetic procedures for men:

As a result of the rise in male liposuction, American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery has listed five most popular cosmetic procedures for men. Among them, are Liposuction, Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping), Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), Gynecomastia (removal of breast tissue), and Otoplasty (ear shaping). Others like Face or Neck lift, Brow lift, Abdominoplasty, Genioplasty, and hair transplant do not fall too far behind.
