Thinking that just women want and undergo liposuction is a myth. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, nearly 52,000 procedures were performed in 2013 and liposuction procedures were up 16 percent from the previous year when it came to male patients.
Liposuction can help men with a variety of areas on the body that have proven resistant to exercise and diet, like a double chin or love handles by the abdomen and hips. Lipo in these areas can eliminate stubborn pockets of fat and create a sculpted, masculine jaw line and a more toned waistline, both of which can leave the patient looking much younger.
However, the area that so many men are focused on is their chest. Having fat on the chest, which can look like so-called ‘man boobs’, is a source of embarrassment for many men and leaves them feeling self-conscious and unable to take their shirt off. Unfortunately this is an area that is often hard to correct without liposuction and body sculpting, even with weight loss and a good, healthy physique.
A consultation and evaluation by a surgeon, like Dr. Thomas Su at Artistic Liposculpting Center in Tampa, can help men considering lipo on any area of the body learn how this relatively simple procedure can transform their lives.
