How Is Liposuction for Men Performed?
To perform liposuction in men, anesthesia is used. A small incision is made and a hollow tube is inserted to remove unwanted fatty tissue from the area. The tube is moved in a back-and-forth motion, and when the fat removal is complete, the incision is closed and the area bandaged. Men have liposuction performed on areas such as the waist, the abdominal area, the thighs and the upper arms.
Preparing for Liposuction for Men
Unlike some cosmetic procedures, liposuction for men doesn’t require a certain regimen to follow before you have the surgery. However, you should stay away from lotions, creams, and cologne on the designated area. Keep a realistic attitude about your outcome, as it can take up to several months to experience the full effect of the procedure.
Liposuction for Men Recovery
A compression garment will be used over the bandages following the surgery, and it will be kept there until the doctor gives the okay for its removal. You’ll be prescribed antibiotics to prevent post-surgical infection. You’ll also have medicine to help with any soreness and irritation. You may have some swelling or mild discomfort after your surgery, but these are usually short-lived. When you speak with Dr. Swift following the procedure, you’ll receive more information on the recovery process.

How Much Does Liposuction for Men Cost?
