MALE LIPOSCULPTING

 

The ideal male body shape is considered to be trim and athletic-looking, with broad shoulders and chest, a flat abdomen, and a narrow hip to thigh area. As men age, however, areas of fat tend to accumulate around the abdomen, the flanks ("love handles"), as well as the chin and neck. Liposuction can be used to remove these fatty areas that are resistant to diet and exercise, contouring the body to add definition and improve shape.

 

Liposuction is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed across the United States, and Dr. Castillo is skilled in all aspects of traditional, ultrasound, and power assisted techniques.  Leveraging experience, and listening to his patient’s goals, Dr. Castillo can help males looking to accentuate muscular definition in the chest pectoralis muscles, the abdominal six-pack, and the arms and calves.

 

 

 

  • SURGICAL TECHNIQUES

     

    Liposuction requires creating small (0.5-1.0 cm) incisions in the skin, camouflaged in body creases or inconspicuous areas.  Fluid containing medications aimed to provide pain-relief and limit blood loss is then infused into the problem area, before special instruments are used to suction out the excess fat.  Careful attention to detail during the suction phase of the procedure ensures enough fat is removed to smooth the problem area while leaving enough fat behind to create a pleasing contour with the surrounding body areas. This avoids unnatural lumps, bumps, or ridges in the skin.  Surgical tape and gauze are placed over the incisions, and a compression garment is applied to help reduce swelling and aid in skin retraction.

  • RECOVERY

     

    For the first few days after surgery, pink colored fluid will seep from the incision sites.  This is a combination of the fluid placed at the time of surgery and a small amount of blood. This is normal and expected.  Sleeping on towels, and repeatedly changing the gauze will help with fluid staining.

     

    The numbing medication placed during the procedure will provide pain relief for several hours after surgery.  The discomfort after the numbing medication has worn off is proportional to the amount of liposuction performed, and may require prescription pain medication.  Soreness will persist for 2-4 weeks after surgery.  Any areas of bruising or swelling after surgery will gradually recede.   The compression garments are typically worn for up to 6 weeks after surgery.

     

    With the immediate loss of fat from liposculpting, results are quickly appreciated after surgery.  A more gradual improvement will be noticeable for up to 3-4 months after surgery.

     

  • RISKS

     

    We believe in being preemptive to avoid any risks associated with surgery, but occasionally the following may occur:

     

    Bleeding – Liposuction normally causes minimal bleeding.  This is seen as either slight bruising, or in the pink colored fluid that drains for the first few days after surgery.

     

    Seroma – A fluid collection may form after liposuction and may require drainage. This can typically be performed in the office.

     

    Infection – Liposuction carries a small risk of infection, but if one occurs, it may require oral, or intravenous, antibiotics.

     

    Irregularity – Despite proper technique, a skin or contour irregularity can occur.  If significant, additional surgery may be required to correct the irregularity.

     

    Blood Clots: Liposuction can result in the development of blood clots in the legs.  These clots can travel to the lungs where they can be fatal.  Precautions before, and after, surgery are taken to avoid blood clots from forming.

     

    Skin Laxity: The skin must shrink to match the size of the area liposuctioned. Occasionally the skin may not retract enough, leading to skin excess.

  • ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

     

    Duration of Results: Because liposuction physically removes fat from the body, the results are permanent.  The remaining fat is still diet sensitive, so with weight gain the remaining fat does not multiply, but the fat cells will enlarge.

     

    Liposuction:  There is a five-liter limit on liposuction during any one surgery.  Roughly ten pounds, performing more liposuction may result in unsafe fluid shifts within the body.

Couple the increasing demand that society places on individuals to look young and fit, with a competitive job market, and it should come as no surprise that male elective cosmetic surgery has become commonplace.  Plastic surgery lends males the opportunity to look younger, feel better, and project greater confidence.

FAQS

 

How does liposuction deal with my problem areas?

“Problem areas” arise in the body when an area either has too many, or too large of, fat cells.  Genetics determines the number of fat cells your body has, while diet influences their size.  Liposuction permanently removes fat, allowing selective contouring of any problem areas of the body.

 

How long will I need to take off of work?

Depending on the extent of liposculpting, and any additional surgery you may have, patients can often return to work in just a few days.

 

What does liposculpting not do?

While liposculpting is good for removing isolated pockets of fatty tissue, it is not a weight-loss solution or substitute for proper diet and exercise.  It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite or skin that is already loose or saggy.
