The pricing for the deployment of VASER Lipo, SmartLipo, and BodyTite on a single zone starts at $6,999. However, there are additional fees if the patient would like to remove fat from other zones of the body. It is possible for physicians to perform liposuction on 3-4 zones for as low as $12,999, depending upon the size and amount of fat in each area.
A liposuction procedure for men boasts a very quick recovery process. In fact, it is not uncommon for men who undergo liposuction to return to non-work-related activities just one day after the procedure. However, it is recommended that patients take 3-7 days to recover.
The length of the procedure depends on the number of zones and the amount of fat to be removed in each zone. However, on average, a liposuction procedure for men takes 60 minutes to perform per area.
It’s one of the most frustrating issues for those trying to improve the appearance of their body; you’re healthy, you’re strong, and you’re fit…but your body doesn’t look the part. That is not a failure on your part; for some men, no amount of dieting or exercising can reduce body fat. In these cases, patients are unable to improve their shape or figure, no matter how hard they try.
A liposuction procedure for men allows the man, who has failed previously with diet and exercise to use liposuction to target stubborn areas for improvements in figure, shape, and contour. In essence, liposuction for men involves the removal of fat collections through small, hidden access ports. By utilizing energy-assisted devices, like BodyTite, or SmartLipo, Dr. Mulholland and his experienced team are able to heat, liquefy, and coagulate the fat just prior to its aspiration and gentle removal. The advantage of BodyTite liposuction is the ability to contract skin and tighten contour while removing fat.
The physicians at SpaMedica take a different approach when performing a liposuction procedure on male patients, as men tend to have fat that is much more fibrous than women. As such, the SpaMedica doctors opt to forgo traditional liposuction techniques in favor of energy-assisted devices such as VASER Lipo, SmartLipo, and BodyTite. These energy based liposuction devices can liquify the more fibrous male fat, making it easier to remove through liposuction aspiration. For men, common locations for liposuction include the love handles, abdomen, double chin, and male breasts.
In truth, there is no particular age restriction for a liposuction procedure, and there is no specific trait that defines a “good” candidate. Fundamentally, good candidates are men who have excess fat on the flanks, chest, or chin. Typically, these men have been unable to achieve the contour they desire through diet or exercise.
While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, there are certain conditions that can make the process more seamless:
● Proper Physical Health: Good health and a lack of serious medical conditions are vital for a proper recovery following liposuction. For men who are looking for more extensive work regarding their fat deposits, SpaMedica recommends selecting a more thorough liposuction procedure.
● Realistic Expectations: As is the case with most cosmetic procedures, good liposuction candidates have realistic expectations concerning the risks and benefits of the surgery. A realistic sense of the average contour and noticeable localized fat reduction outcome is critical.
Fast Recovery: Unlike traditional liposuction techniques, a modern liposuction procedure for men, BodyTite Liposuction, SmartLiposuction and Vaser Liposuction boasts a relatively quick recovery process.
Predictable Results: The state-of-the-art ultrasound technology involved in a liposuction procedure for men makes it easy to predict the results of the procedure.
Durable Results: If your weight does not fluctuate much following the procedure, the results of a liposuction procedure for men can last for the rest of your life.
Improved Shape: As Liposuction reduces localized fat pockets in the body that detract from contour, the prime benefit of the procedure is its ability to improve contour shape and form.
Like all procedures, liposuction for men comes with the risk of potential complications. The risk of a significant complication is extremely low. Dr. Mulholland has performed over 2000 liposuction procedures and has not seen most of the risks listed below; these liposuction risks have been reported:
Swelling: In some cases, the procedure can result in swelling. However, this swelling should subside in the days following the procedure.
Infections: Although infections are very rare with respect to liposuction procedures, Dr. Mulholland and his experienced team still take every precaution to ensure that the surgery is a smooth, seamless experience.
Numbness: The affected area may feel numb following the surgery, but this side effect is typically temporary.
Bruising: In rare cases, the procedure may result in bruising that can last several days.
Liposuction is an art, and it meets science beautifully with the application of energy-assisted devices like BodyTite Lipo, SmartLipo and VASER Lipo. Choosing Dr. Mulholland at SpaMedica in Toronto means getting one of the foremost experts in the world in advanced modern liposuction. Additionally, the SpaMedica team is well-known for its service experience, care, and attention to your pre and post-operative needs. After 2000 liposuction procedures and teaching over 1,000 physicians the nuances of BodyTite liposuction, Dr. Mulholland is acknowledged as one of the best Liposuction physicians in the world.
BodyTite Lipo involves the release of radiofrequency through a small, probe and into the fat. The radiofrequency energy melts the fat and coagulates small blood vessels, resulting in far less bruising and swelling. Most importantly, BodyTite lipo can lead to 40-60% skin contraction after the liposuction procedure.
SmartLipo uses a small laser to emit energy directly into the fat before aspiration. This liquefies the fat while closing off blood vessels to minimize bruising. As a result, SmartLipo facilitates easy aspiration with a microcannula.
VASER Lipo involves the release of ultrasonic energy into the fat. The ultrasound waves gently vibrate and implode the fat cell, creating a liquefied substance. Once the ultrasound has liquefied the fat, Dr. Mulholland uses a microcannula to gently aspirate and remove the liquefied fat from the unwanted areas.
SpaMedica is Canada’s leading non-surgical fat reduction center. At SpaMedica, Dr. Mulholland deploys innovative non-surgical liposuction technologies, including CoolSculpting, Sculpsure, BodyFX, Vanquish and Evolve to kill fat cells non-surgically
At SpaMedica, a liposuction procedure for men is performed under local anesthesia and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation. Once the local anaesthetic has been injected, there is no pain, and the fat tissue can be heated, the soft tissue contracted and then removed. Dr. Mulholland or Dr. Bell utilizes energy-assisted devices to gently liquefy and remove unwanted fat during the surgery. Later, the doctor shapes the area where the unwanted fat has been removed in order to ensure an excellent body contour.
Prior to your procedure, Dr. Mulholland and his team will review your medications and medical history. Based on the scope of the surgery, SpaMedica doctors may recommend that you stop taking certain medications before the surgery. It is also recommended that you consume a healthy diet and drink plenty of liquids before your surgery.
Following your liposuction procedure, Dr. Mulholland and his team in Toronto will recommend a comprehensive postoperative care regime. This regime will include instructions about the importance of avoiding physical activity, abstaining from alcohol and smoking, and minimizing exposure to the sun. Please note that patients are required to wear a compression garment to ensure proper contour and reduce swelling. There are also a series of non invasive Evolve treatments that begin around 12 weeks post-op and continue every 8 weeks for the first year and are designed to further tighten skin can smoothen contours.
After the Surgery: Following the surgery, the patient will go home with a compression garment designed to reduce swelling. Generally, these garments are worn 22 hours a day.
Day 1: Patients may return to very light, sedentary work or non-work-related activities.
Week 1: Patients can return to low-impact activities.
Week 3: The compression garments can now be worn for support during the day and removed in the evening and overnight.
Week 6: Patients can return to high-impact activities such as jogging, running, and weight training.
Liposuction is often combined with a male Belt lift, or blepharoplasty for lower lid bags, or upper lid hooding.
At SpaMedica, the actual liposuction procedure will not be felt due to the local anesthesia that will be placed into the fat prior to the procedure. While there may be swelling and discomfort afterward, there will be no extreme or long-term pain. Interestingly, the energy-assisted devices deployed in a liposuction procedure for men have been proven to cause far less discomfort than traditional liposuction techniques.
The results of your liposuction will be lifelong. The fat that is removed will not return. However, it is essential to stay within 5-10 pounds of your post-liposuction weight to ensure permanent contour and figure enhancements.
