Is Liposuction for Men?

Summer will soon be upon us, and women aren’t the only ones who want to look good in a swimsuit. In 2010, more than one million men underwent cosmetic procedures, with liposuction being the third most popular procedure. This isn’t surprising given that fat deposits and cellulite can plague men as well as women.

Dr. Jewell is a leader in body contouring as one of the co-developers of Vaser® ultrasonic lipoplasty. Vaser Lipoplasty can be used to selectively target fat deposits, using ultrasonic energy to break up and separate the fat cells for liposuction removal while leaving vital tissues intact. Patients that undergo Vaser lipoplasty experience less pain, bruising, and soreness during the procedure than traditional liposuction and because it is minimally invasive, patients have minimal downtime and a faster recovery while still enjoying predictable, successful results.

Another, newer option for targeting fat deposits is Liposonix. Dr. Jewell is the primary investigator and proud to be one of the first plastic surgeons in the nation to offer Liposonix. Liposonix also utilizes ultrasound technology to permanently destroy unwanted fat around your waistline and “love handles.” The procedure is perfect for those who wish to get rid of that last stubborn inch or two that diet and exercise aren’t eliminating. Liposonix can be especially appealing for men because it is fast, taking place in an hour-long office visit, with no incisions to care for and no downtime- perfect for the working professional or any busy, on-the-go individual who can’t take time off of work but still wants to look their best.
