It's frustrating that physique is often determined by genetics and age. No matter how hard you work out or how well you eat, you can still have stubborn fat deposits. In particular, fat tends to shift to the midsection in men and can become resistant to diet and exercise. Fortunately, you don't have to live with it. For hard-working men in Los Angeles, liposuction is an effective way to eliminate "love handles" and regain a leaner midsection and chest.
Like every man, you have your own individual anatomy and concerns about your physique. I make a point of understanding your goals as thoroughly as possible. I will work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your specific needs.
Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. I have refined my techniques to such a degree that I often perform the liposuction with local anesthetic alone. Through tiny incisions, I remove fat using small suction tubes called cannulas. What makes my Los Angeles liposuction procedure special is that fat is selectively removed. This keeps blood vessels, nerves and skin intact so the skin can contract around your leaner shape.
The surgeon performing your liposuction is the most important factor determining your results. The technique a surgeon uses is also significant and can play a large role in the outcome of your surgery. The techniques I find most helpful include: power-assisted liposuction (PAL), tumescent liposuction and laser liposuction. Each has its benefits, and the one I use depends on your skin tone, amount of fat and complementary procedures being performed. Generally, though, I recommend PAL because it gives me greater precision in sculpting the most desirable shape. It has the quickest recovery time, as well.
During your initial consultation, we'll work together to customize the approach that works best for you.
Men of all ages can benefit from liposuction. As we get older, however, career and family obligations can take on a life of their own. It becomes increasingly difficult to find time to care for ourselves. Liposuction in Los Angeles often serves as the catalyst men need to commit to a healthy diet and exercise regimen. It's important to note that liposuction is an excellent procedure for body contouring but not for weight loss. That is the role of diet and exercise.
Many of my male patients choose nonsurgical facial rejuvenation including BOTOX®, fillers or skin resurfacing to complement their liposuction. In today's competitive workplace, looking energized can be as important as looking physically fit.
Liposuction surgery in Los Angeles is safe and easy. Some patients experience moderate discomfort and soreness, but they tell me it's easily managed with mild pain medication. In general, my patients recover quickly from liposuction and resume normal activities within 2 days.
No procedure is without risks, but the majority of complications associated with liposuction are minor. Possible risks include infection, skin damage or blood clots. All of these are extremely uncommon in my practice.
