Liposuction for Men – Upper Arms & Legs
Liposuction is a popular and common cosmetic treatment that can be used to reduce the amount of fat beneath the skin. Liposuction has been increasing in popularity amount men, as they can greatly benefit from this cosmetic procedure, especially in their thighs and arms. Many men suffer from loose, flabby skin on their upper arms, either as a result of aging, weight loss, or simply genetics. Often times, no amount of exercise or dieting can completely eliminate the hanging skin. Likewise, men’s thighs can also become a source of embarrassment, as stubborn fat accumulates and skin loosens over time. As with the arms, the loose skin in this area can be difficult to correct with only diet and exercise. Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank offers tumescent liposuction, a modern and technologically sophisticated form of liposuction, to his male patients who wish to improve their appearance by reducing sagging skin or fat deposits in their upper arms and thighs.
Tumescent liposuction is the term for a more modern approach to liposuction, which is quite different than the painful and invasive liposuction techniques of the past. Over the past 25 years, dermatologic and cosmetic surgeons have worked to perfect the micro-cannular tumescent liposuction approach. This minimally invasive procedure is much safer for patients and provides better results. In tumescent liposuction, a tiny cannula (a tube-like device) is inserted beneath the skin and is used to gently break up and separate fat deposits under the skin. Once the fat has been broken into small pieces, it is suctioned out of the body. Men and women alike can equally benefit from the tumescent liposuction approach, which, unlike older methods, does not require that the patient undergo general anesthesia.
In his practice, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank uses two types of tumescent technologies – VASER ® Liposelection and SmartLipo MPX™. He is one of the few surgeons in the world to incorporate both technologies in one procedure, which he has termed the “DualSculpt” technique. Another advantage of undergoing tumescent liposuction is the much reduced recovery time. A man can undergo a DualSculpt liposuction on a Friday, return to work on Monday, and fully resume all normal activities in a week. In today’s fast moving world, men cannot afford the downtime required by traditional liposuction. With Dr. Frank’s modern approaches, liposuction becomes a much more appealing and feasible procedure for today’s busy man.
The men best suited to undergo a liposuction procedure are men who are in good health and are generally in good shape. The best candidates have tried diet and exercise, but still cannot eliminate troublesome areas in the thighs and upper arms. To prepare for the procedure, men should maintain a healthy diet and exercise program leading up to the procedure. You do not necessarily need to lose weight before the procedure, but it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle before undergoing liposuction. In order to understand if you are an ideal candidate for tumescent liposuction, you should discuss your goals and medical history with Dr. Frank. Only a skilled and qualified doctor can determine if you should undergo liposuction and will benefit from the procedure. Dr. Frank will also help you understand what to expect, so you can set your expectations. Recovery period and guidelines for recovery will be discussed in great deal in your pre-procedure consultation. Nothing should stop you from achieving the body you want, as tumescent liposuction makes your ideal body easily within reach.
