Male Liposuction Houston
For many individuals, diet and exercise are simply not enough to attain their desired body shape. In spite of these efforts, many people are unable to get rid of excess fat in certain areas of the body, due to genetic disposition and other factors, preventing them from achieving their overall body image goals. Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that targets the problem areas of the body that are notoriously difficult to rid of fat. A surgical technique that removes unwanted fat deposits from specific areas of the body, including the face and neck, upper arms, trunk, abdomen, knees, and other areas, liposuction at the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, TX is a popular cosmetic technique for both men and women.
The ideal candidates for male liposuction in Houston are men of relatively normal weight who have excess fat in particular areas. Men who have firm, elastic skin will have excellent results and contour after liposuction. Liposuction cannot replace a heathly lifestyle. Liposuction is not designed for weight loss and is not a substitute for exercise. Liposuction is a body contouring procedure that is intended to diminish persistent areas of fat in the body and figure faults.
Traditionally, figure-refining cosmetic surgical procedures such as liposuction have been associated with women. However, it is becoming increasingly common for men to undergo liposuction and many other body sculpting procedures at the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston. Many men have a difficult time getting rid of fat in the abdominal area and are plagued with persistent "love handles."
Liposuction is also an option for men who wish to diminish the appearance of gynecomastia, or the abnormal enlargement of male breasts. Liposuction for men is not limited to the body only. Many men are turning to liposuction to slim and rejuvenate their faces; targeting areas such as the chin, neck, and jowls. Although the areas that men wish to target are commonly different from the areas that females are concerned with, the procedure is very much the same.
Liposuction at the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston is performed using the most up-to-date techniques including ultrasonic and laser assisted liposuction which promote a faster and more comfortable healing process and enhanced skin tightening. During the liposuction procedure, fatty tissue is removed through a hollow metal surgical instrument know as a cannula that is inserted through small skin incision(s). In many cases, male liposuction procedures can be accomplished with local anesthesia. For patients undergoing a more extensive liposuction surgery in Houston, general or regional anesthesia is preferable with a tumescent technique whereby large volumes of anesthetic fluid are infused to allow for a pain free procedure.
After liposuction, Houston patients can commonly expect to experience some minor bruising, soreness, and numbness. These symptoms will generally diminish within two weeks. An elastic binder or support garment is worn for 3 weeks. Once the affected area has healed, liposuction patients enjoy a firmer body liberated of undesired problem areas.
