What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a form of fat removal that implements a cannula and aspirator. Through small incisions, a cannula is inserted to remove unwanted fat. The aspirator will make sure those fat cells are gone forever!

There have been many innovations in liposuction in recent years. At Korman Plastic Surgery we offer some of these advanced techniques to allow for a more precise, impressive outcome.

Vaser

This revolutionary form of liposuction uses ultrasound to emulsify fat cells and slim down your body. During surgery, an ultrasound probe will be used to melt fat cells. These cells will be quickly removed with a small cannula. Dr. Korman is able to leave surrounding tissues intact while using this method, helping to shorten your recovery time.

Ultrasound technology will also tighten your skin, giving you a smooth, defined outcome.

SmartLipo

This lipo technique implements laser technology to achieve your ideal body. A small laser fiber will be inserted through tiny incisions during surgery. The heat of the laser will emulsify fat as well as stimulate collagen levels in your skin. The effect will provide localized skin tightening. The excess oil and fat that has been emulsified will be removed with a small tube.

Each of these treatments will improve the definition of your muscles and help you regain your masculine physique! These treatments will be discussed in your personal consultation with Dr. Korman.

Some of the more popular treatment areas for men are:

Male Breast Surgery

Male breast reduction is a common condition we treat. Man boobs may develop due to a myriad of factors, but one of the more common reasons men develop breasts is due to hormone imbalance. Men with a disbalance of more estrogen than testosterone may develop a condition known as Gynecomastia. There are many gynecomastia causes, the more frequent reasons men develop it are due to life changes. During puberty and later in life, men will experience fluctuations in their hormones. The breast tissue will swell. This may become uncomfortable and is embarrassing for some gentleman. Men with breasts may shy away from activities that draw attention to their chest.

At Korman Plastic Surgery, we want you to be proud of your body and feel your best! Liposuction is a great gynecomastia treatment and Dr. Korman approaches this surgery with discretion. This often results in the development of breast tissue. Breast reduction for men is common and Dr. Korman is able to achieve this procedure with minimal scarring.

Abdominal Liposuction

Belly fat is something we all struggle with. It is important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery and will only eliminate fat just under the skin. If your stomach extends and you have a “beer gut,” lipo surgery cannot help. Beer guts are caused by visceral fat, a hard form of fat that forms deep within the abdomen around your internal organs. This fat is unhealthy in large quantities and leads to severe health conditions.

With precision and the liposuction tools mentioned above, Dr. Korman can help sculpt your abdomen and give you an attractive six-pack.

The abdomen is a very difficult area to achieve definition. If you are frustrated that dieting and exercise are not giving you the chiseled abs you desire, liposuction can help!

Flank Lipo Surgery

Along with the chest and abdomen, love handles are also a very difficult area to reduce fat. These bulges may make clothing uncomfortable and detract from your natural contours. For a smooth, attractive core, liposuction flank fat away in just one treatment!

Whether you are interested in abs liposuction, arms liposuction, or a male chest reduction, liposuction can help sculpt your body and provide an impressive outcome!

Benefits

Liposuction results are something to get excited about and you will be able to notice them right after surgery.

One of the primary benefits of Vaser and SmartLipo is that they promote fast surgery due to emulsifying the fat cells. In traditional liposuction, the procedure requires the surgeon to move their wrist back and forth for a long time to gently dislodge fat cells. With Vaser and SmartLipo, the surgery is sped up because both treatments emulsify fat. Another benefit is that these surgeries, because they melt fat cells without requiring extensive movement like traditional lipo, will promote less trauma to surrounding tissues. You will be able to enjoy a faster, more comfortable recovery.

Candidates

If you are a healthy man who is within his ideal weight range, you are an ideal candidate for liposuction. Lipo surgery will get rid of that pesky fat that bothers you. If you are interested in liposuction at Korman Plastic Surgery, schedule a consultation with us today.

Personal Consultation

Your first step towards a more attractive you starts with a meeting with Dr. Korman. In this meeting, you will have the opportunity to discuss the areas you are unhappy with and what you would like liposuction to achieve. Dr. Korman will examine the area(s) and ask about our medical history and health. If lipo surgery seems like a good choice for you, Dr. Korman will explain your liposuction options and design a treatment plan for you.

Preparation

Before your surgery date, you will need to pick up prescribed medications and arrange for rides. You may need to request a couple of days off from work to ensure you have a healthy, restful recovery. For your best surgery and recovery, be sure to follow Dr. Korman’s instructions and call our office if you have any questions.

Procedure

When you arrive at your surgery, you will need to change into a gown. The surgical team will prep the predetermined sites. Your surgery will begin with the administration of tumescent fluid.

Tumescent liquid is a revolutionary breakthrough in liposuction surgery and will improve the safety and efficacy of the treatment. Tumescent fluid will swell the treatment site and constrict blood vessels. This will allow the fat cells to be removed more easily without causing trauma to the surrounding tissues, and with less blood loss.

Dr. Korman will then apply the preferred liposuction tool to begin removing fat and sculpting the area. Once the desired effect has been achieved, the incision(s) will be closed and bandaged.

Recovery

Following the surgery, your treated area will be swollen and sensitive. Pain medication will control any discomfort and compression bandages will reduce swelling. You will need to avoid strenuous activities that could stress incisions or treated areas. Get plenty of sleep and stay hydrated. A follow-up appointment will allow Dr. Korman to monitor your healing and inform you of what the rest of your recovery will look like.

Results

Liposuction produces immediate results! You will already notice a slimmer, more proportional body after surgery. As swelling diminishes, these results will only get better! Your best results will be noticeable about four months after surgery when you are all healed. The outcome achieved in surgery is long-lasting and with a healthy lifestyle, you will be able to enjoy your results for years to come!

Cost

The cost of each lipo surgery will relate to the technique used and the area(s) being treated. A personal consultation will allow Dr. Korman to customize a treatment plan for you and inform you of the costs involved.

FAQs

Can liposuction get rid of gynecomastia?

Yes! Liposuction is a highly effective way to reduce male breasts. If you struggle with gynecomastia and would like to return or improve the definition of your chest, lipo surgery will give you the results you desire.

Can gynecomastia go away?

This depends on many factors such as age and lifestyle. Most boys will develop breasts as they go through puberty. After puberty is over, their hormones will balance out and their manly chest will develop. This is not always the case. Some men may always have breasts and others may not develop gynecomastia until later in life. Age and lifestyle relate directly to your health and hormones. A healthy diet and an active lifestyle will diminish your chances of developing breasts and help you live a full, active life. If you do develop gynecomastia, liposuction is your best solution for a chiseled outcome!

Can you remove gynecomastia?

Yes, you can remove excess breast tissue with liposuction. Lipo techniques can be used to remove unnecessary fat and enhance the contours of your chest. The result will be a defined, masculine chest.

Is gynecomastia surgery necessary?

No, however, it will give you the results you want right away. Other methods of reducing breast tissue will take months to years to provide results. Many of these treatments, like hormone medication, will come with side effects. Liposuction will give you fast results and help you look your best in no time!

The cost of each liposuction procedure is particular to the patient. Each of our patients has a unique goal in mind and certain anatomical features.
