Stubborn fat happens to both men and women. Even after years of diligent dieting and hours at the gym, people can still be left with fat that won’t seem to disappear. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat from these areas. Liposuction for men typically focuses on different places than it does for women. Men may wish to get liposuction in areas such as the neck, jowls, abdomen, flanks, and chest. 

Liposuction With Dr. Ching

Liposuction is the most common type of cosmetic surgery chosen by men. Dr. Ching uses Smartlipo® laser liposuction for the precise removal of fatty deposits with less recovery time. Liposuction removes fat under the skin using small (3 millimeters), skillfully placed incisions. Dr. Shim places the incisions in natural body creases whenever possible to avoid substantial scarring. During the surgery, the fat liquefied with the laser and then is suctioned out using a cannula.

Ideal Candidates For Liposuction

Liposuction is designed to get rid of stubborn fat deposits, and it not a weight loss procedure. Men who are interested in the procedure should be close to their desired weight and in a healthy weight range. They should also be free from any significant health issues and a non-smoker. During your private consultation with Dr. Ching, he will review your medical history, and listen to your concerns, and examine the areas you would like to target. After this, he will determine if the procedure is right for you and develop a treatment plan to address your goals.

Liposuction Recovery

After the procedure, you will experience some swelling and bruising in the areas that were treated. Depending on the nature of the treatment, you may be able to return to work one to two weeks after surgery.

More strenuous activities such as heavy lifting and intense cardio should be avoided for several weeks or until you get the green light from Dr. Ching. The doctor will work hard to place incisions in areas where they will not be visible. Throughout the recovery, you will see scars begin to fade. The fat cells are permanently removed from the area, but fat cells will return to other areas of the body if you gain weight. After your procedure, it is essential to eat healthily and exercise to maintain the results.

High-Definition Liposuction

Dr. Ching also provides high-definition liposuction for patients who wish to remove stubborn fat as well as look more toned or sculpted. High-definition liposuction enhances the appearance of muscles by etching contours into the body.  The most common area to do this is the abdomen to create the appearance of a “six-pack”.  Other areas of definition include the chest, shoulders, arms, lower back and legs. Depending on what you hope to achieve from your process, Dr. Ching will recommend high-definition liposuction where it will look the best.
