It is becoming more common for men to undergo liposuction. Men want to look as good just like women do, and many are very self-conscious. Plastic surgery such as liposuction can help a man feel better about himself and look younger and more vibrant. The number of male liposuction patients is growing every year as more and more men take advantage of this procedure.
Generally, liposuction for men is a bit more expensive than it is for women and there are three reasons for this. For one thing, the fat on a man’s body is more fibrous than the fat on a woman’s and is harder to remove. Another thing that makes it more expensive is the fact that men usually want liposuction done on places that are more fibrous to start with, such as the chest and abdomen. Plus, men are usually larger than women, so a bigger area is having to be treated.
So what parts do men usually want to be treated? Liposuction is used to reduce love handles and many male patients have had trouble losing the weight around that area. The abdomen is another popular location, because it is so difficult to tone. The chin, neck, and jowls are other popular places to give the face a slimmer, more youthful appearance. Liposuction is also used to treat gynecomastia which is the abnormal growth of the male breasts. Always check with your doctor for any risks you should be aware of because liposuction is a surgery and should not be taken lightly.
