It is commonly misunderstood that women are the main clients for plastic surgery, but millions of men and women receive cosmetic procedures every year. Liposuction is one of the most common of these procedures and Dr. Diktaban has seen amazing results for both his male and female patients after receiving a liposuction procedure.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is fat reduction procedure that removes stubborn fat cells to recounter various parts of the body. During this minimally invasive surgery, a few small incisions will be made and a cannula, or thin tube, is inserted to break up fat cells and remove them with gentle suction. Often, liposuction is used as part of other plastic surgery procedures such as a mommy makeover, tummy tuck, or Brazilian butt lift. The ideal patient is in good health, nearly at their weight goal but unable to lose certain areas of fat that are not responding to diet and exercise.

How Liposuction is Different for Men and Women

While women typically have liposuction to slim areas of the body or treat stubborn fat, men use liposuction to sculpt and recounter certain features. Women typically treat their abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks with liposuction. Men treat their chest, abs, arm and chin or neck. Liposuction is also used to treat gynecomastia, a condition that causes men to grow unwanted breast tissue.

Important Things to Know About Liposuction for Men

Although liposuction is not a solution for weight loss, men can expect to lose some fat during liposuction surgery. This may not equate to a large decrease in the number on the scale, but the loss of inches and a sculpted physique are usually a more compelling improvement. Although your final results may not be noticeable for 3-6 months, the wait is worth it for permanently destroyed pockets of stubborn fat.
