Liposuction is far from a one-size-fits-all procedure, but it is often presented that way. Oftentimes, men and women seeking liposuction won’t take the time to research their plastic surgeon because they feel like it’s a straightforward procedure that doesn’t take a lot of skill or training. This could not be further from the truth.
Though liposuction for men and women is often treated like a run-of-the-mill procedure, it can and should be highly customized to each individual who chooses it. There are a wide variety of male and female liposuction procedures, and which procedure you choose can have a major impact upon your final results.
Unfortunately, though liposuction is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States, it has one of the highest dissatisfaction rates precisely because it is frequently not customized to the specific body types, age, activity levels, and wishes of the people who seek it. In my practice, I hope to remedy that situation.
I have been performing liposuction for women and men since 1994. In my years of experience, I have discovered that in order to achieve the best results, liposuction takes an artful hand and a detailed eye. That’s part of why I like to take the time to get to know each of my clients individually before working with them. Every person has their own reasons for seeking cosmetic procedures, and they have their own level of comfort talking about their bodies. By taking the time to let my patients get comfortable with me, I’m better able to provide customized treatment plans that are precisely in line with my clients true wishes.
Types of Liposuction
Current modalities of female and male liposuction include smart lipo, ultrasound-assisted lipo, VASER liposuction, power-assisted lipo, and high-def lipo. Which procedure is right for you depends upon factors such as the size of the area which you’d like addressed, your personal expectations, age, activity level, and required recovery time.
In the hands of a highly trained plastic surgeon, liposuction can be incredibly effective. VASER lipo, for example, can be used to not just remove troublesome fat deposits but actually enhance the appearance of the muscles underneath the fat, creating a more sculpted and chiseled look. This procedure is particularly popular among male liposuction patients.
