A growing number of men are choosing cosmetic surgery to enhance their physique. Fortunately, liposuction provides these men with a highly effective way to achieve the sexy, manly bodies they desire.
What Is Liposuction For Men?
Liposuction is among the most widely used cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States. It is very effective for getting rid of pockets of body fat that diet and exercise just don’t seem to touch. In recent years, the techniques used in liposuction have changed considerably. Dr. Shumway uses highly advanced methods to remove unwanted fat and create the contours you’ve always wanted.
Benefits of Liposuction for Men
With liposuction, men can experience these benefits:
- Shorter recovery time
- Minimal scarring
- Excellent results that look natural
- Can be done on most parts of the body
What Is SmartLipo® Triplex™?
Normal liposuction removes fat but doesn’t help much with loose skin. SmartLipo Triplex is a laser-assisted liposuction system that burns away obstinate fat cells and encourages the production of collagen. Together, these factors give you tighter, more toned skin. In addition, the recovery period with SmartLipo® Triplex™ is much shorter than with the traditional method.
Am I a Candidate?
SmartLipo® Triplex™ isn’t a solution for losing weight. Patients should be in good general health and be able to stay at a normal weight for their height and frame. This liposuction method might be right for you if you prefer a fat-removal procedure that is minimally invasive and has a short recovery. Dr. Shumway will evaluate your physical attributes to determine whether you’re a good candidate for this procedure. Please call today to book a consultation and start on your path to becoming the victor over unwanted body fat.
What Happens During SmartLipo® Triplex™?
This procedure uses local anesthesia only. A tiny incision is made in the desired location and the small SmartLipo® Triplex™ device is inserted. A powerful laser burns away the fat cells where a healthy diet and lifestyle have failed.
How Fast Will I Heal?
It’s recommended to take at least a day off to rest after your procedure. After two days, you can go back to work, which is far sooner than with normal liposuction. Taking pain relievers should help control discomfort, but you’ll likely notice some bruising and swelling around the treated locations.
How Will I Look?
You’ll look amazing. In fact, you’ll notice a significant difference immediately after your procedure, which only improves as the swelling fades.
What Is CelluLaze™?
CelluLaze™ is a cutting-edge laser procedure designed specifically to abolish cellulite, the network of tissue underneath the skin that creates that lumpy, cottage cheese-like appearance. CelluLaze™ breaks down this fibrous tissue buried deep within the skin and makes it suppler. This effectively reduces or eliminates the appearance of cellulite, making your skin look smooth and sexy.
Am I a Candidate?
CelluLaze™ is not meant to be a solution to weight loss, and it doesn’t target body fat the way that SmartLipo® Triplex™ does. During your consultation, Dr. Shumway will find out if you have cellulite. If you do, he may suggest the CelluLaze™ procedure as an ideal way to combat the issue.
What Happens During CelluLaze™?
Only local anesthesia is used during the CelluLaze™ procedure, and it only takes one to two hours to perform. Tiny incisions are made in the fatty areas to be treated; then Dr. Shumway inserts a special instrument into these areas that melts away the fat and enhances the elasticity of the skin.
How Fast Will I Heal?
It’s recommended to take one to two days to rest following your procedure. You can expect some minor discomfort and bruising, and fluid may leak from the incisions. You can resume your everyday activities after about two days, but it’s important to avoid rigorous physical activity for one to two weeks.
How Will I Look?
You’ll see instant results with the CelluLaze™ procedure. However, the complete results can take from three to twelve months to become noticeable.
Is Male Liposuction Right for Me?
Liposuction is ideal for men with stubborn, unwanted fat deposits on their backs, faces, necks, abdomens or other parts. If you have certain health problems or use certain medications, Dr. Shumway might determine that liposuction isn’t the right option for you.
