Men tend to accumulate fat in the upper body. Common with age, love handles, beer belly, and excess fat in the chest can create a lumpy, uneven, and unappealing appearance in men – and all too often, those things become permanent.
Excess fat accumulations obstruct definition, eliminate tone, reduce clothing options, and, in some cases, interfere with range of motion. Unfortunately, on-again-off-again fad diets, inconsistent exercise, and daily stress can conspire to make these things worse – so much so that even improved nutrition and enhanced exercise may never entirely correct the problem.
Liposuction removes exercise and diet-resistant fat from areas where it has stubbornly refused to leave. At South Tulsa Plastic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeon customizes liposuction for men to address the most problematic areas and restore an ideally toned and defined appearance.
Power Assisted Liposuction
Dr. Brenda Schiesel utilizes Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) to create optimal definition in male bodies. This advanced liposuction technique uses vibration to break fat deposits apart before they are removed, helping to ensure a more efficient elimination of fat from the body.
Not only is PAL more efficient and effective at fat elimination, but it also:
- Allows for smaller incisions than traditional liposuction
- Reduces the risks of damage to surrounding muscles
- Reduces surgical risks such as excessive bleeding
- Creates a smaller, less conspicuous scar
- Reduces postoperative bruising and recovery time
Following liposuction with PAL, men with desk jobs can often resume working within just a few days. However, for more physically demanding jobs, men may need to wait for two to four weeks before returning. The same is true for exercise. While frequent walking is encouraged in the days following liposuction, engaging in more advanced forms of exercise will need to wait.
Most men feel confident resuming their exercise routine after six weeks, but nothing should be undertaken without the approval of Dr. Schiesel. During follow-up visits, she carefully assesses progress to provide specific recommendations based on factors unique to the individual, helping to ensure the best outcomes with the fewest possible complications.
