Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world, especially here in New York. As our very own New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Leonard Grossman, can tell you, liposuction has more benefits than anyone can imagine. Not only can it eliminate stubborn fat that will not respond to diet or exercise, but it can also improve the contour of your body, defining muscular areas such as the chest, abdomen, arms, and calves and let us not forget the buttocks. Liposuction can boost your self confidence like no other.
But while patients turn to liposuction from far and wide to look and feel great, not everyone has the same motives or expectations from the surgery. Women often turn to liposuction to feel more confident wearing certain clothes like tight jeans, shorts or in a bathing suit. But women aren’t the only ones opting for lipo these days.
According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), male plastic surgery rose 106 percent between 1997 and 2012. But just like women have their individual needs and desires when it comes to plastic surgery procedures, men have unique plastic surgery goals as well. And with an increasing number of men turning to liposuction especially, we find ourselves asking: What exactly do men expect from liposuction?
While any plastic surgery patient wants their results to be natural, men are mostly concerned with making sure their treatments produce the most masculine appropriate results. Although more men are opening up about getting cosmetic surgery, they still prefer to keep treatments a secret with as little of scarring as possible and liposuction is a great way to do that. Men tend to gain weight mostly in the abdominal and waist area, where liposuction is the most effective means of treatment, especially when the skin has good elasticity.
When it comes to liposuction, men also expect a little more than just fat loss. Men don’t want to look thin; they want to look sculpted and buffed. Lipoetching is a fan favorite for men who are looking to undergo liposuction because it doesn’t just get rid of unwanted fat; it actually defines the underlying muscles, resulting in an athletic appearance that can seldom be achieved even with rigorous exercise. Dr. Grossman performs his New York lipoetching technique with thinner cannulas to achieve the greatest precision and optimal results.
Finally, when it comes to liposuction, men want to recover quickly. They don’t want to have to take time off of work or worry about bruising or compression garments. Liposuction expert, plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Grossman has completely eliminated the need for compression garments, stitches and downtime with his innovative Smarter Liposuction approach, which finishes with the patient standing up for even greater accuracy and minimal discomfort. After the treatment, the patient can return to work the next or sometimes even the same day and get back in the gym within three days.
