Liposuction for men: choosing the right doctor is everything
When liposuction or cosmetic surgery in general comes up, people tend to assume the procedure is for a woman. This is no longer the case. Nowadays, men are knocking on plastic surgeons’ doors just as frequently. Maybe it’s because men now realize that they too can benefit from the age-defying, body contouring effects of liposuction, or a male tummy tuck (aka a “belt lift”), among many other cosmetic procedures. After all, a boost in self-confidence is no small thing, regardless of your gender. If you’re thinking of undergoing a treatment aimed at male belly fat removal, the first thing to do is find the right doctor—one very well versed on the particularities of male fat!
Liposuction: male plastic surgery vs female plastic surgery
Although, on a base level, liposuction is liposuction, many technical differences exist between procedures for men and women, because male fat tends to be much more fibrous than female fat, making it much more difficult to aspirate using the usual methods. Dr. Mulholland is renowned for his male liposuction techniques which gently and effectively coagulate and liquefy the difficult-to-remove fat: he has 20 years of expertise in pioneering the use of energy-assisted liposuction treatments, such as VASERLipo, SmartLipo, and BodyTite, which use ultrasound, laser, and radiofrequency energy, respectively. Dr. Mulholland often deploys all three devices to achieve optimal results, and the procedure takes about 45 minutes per area. Many patients choose to treat multiple areas simultaneously.
If you have excess fat you’ve been unable to lose through diet or exercise, and slimming down to your perfect weight seems elusive, you may be an ideal candidate. The most common areas of liposuction for men are the love handles or “spare tire,” often extending around to the lower abdominal “pot” and the back, as well as the double chin area and excess male breast tissue. It’s worth noting that Dr. Mulholland is additionally known for his scarless gynaecomastia breast reduction technique, which spares male patients the embarrassment of scars in the breast area.
