If you have reached your target weight but still have areas of fat that diet and exercise don’t seem to touch, liposuction for men in Raleigh is the next step. Targeting areas on the belly, “love handles,” back, or breast, this procedure quickly and effectively removes those stubborn areas of fat so you can experience a more toned, trim shape. Renowned board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ortiz, will work with you to help you achieve your body goals and get the look you want.
Liposuction, or simply lipo, is a procedure that specifically removes fat deposits in specific areas of the body. While women are more likely to use lipo to remove fat on the lower abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks, male liposuction is more often targeted on the abdomen, sides, breast, and shoulders. The end result is a more trim, toned physique.
There are two liposuction techniques: suction-assisted liposuction and ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Suction-assisted liposuction is a procedure in which a solution of saline, water, and anesthesia is injected directly into the targeted fat cells, then suctioned out using a slim cannula, like an IV needle. On the other hand, ultrasound-assisted liposuction involves inserting a slim, specialized cannula which then vibrates at a rapid pace while releasing ultrasound energy. The high frequency liquifies the fat cells, allowing them to be suctioned out.
Dr. Ortiz will discuss your options and determine the method that will be best for your procedure during your initial consultation. During this time, he will also discuss your goals and end results, as well as your recovery. Male liposuction typically has minimal side effects, such as bruising, swelling, and discomfort, though they often dissipate within 7 to 10 days. Learn about the procedure with our liposuction FAQs.
