Liposuction For Men Atlanta
Tired of that belly or love-handle fat that just won’t go away with diet and exercise? Men have fat deposits that can be refractory to diet and exercise. Usual site for sculpting in men are the abdomen, lovehandles, chest, and chin.
Liposuction is a procedure that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas. Liposuction has become quite popular with men. Whether it be a head start towards weight loss or removal of stubborn fat deposits, liposuction is a proven way to improve the contours on the male body. During the past decade, liposuction, which is also known as “lipoplasty” or “suction lipectomy,” has benefited from several new refinements.
What are the different techniques for liposuction?
There are several types of liposuction that are being marketed. The traditional tumescent liposuction remains the gold standard method for removal of fat. In this procedure, the fat layer is infiltrated with a solution containing local anesthesia, epinephrine (adrenaline), and IV fluid. This solution numbs the fat and contracts the blood vessels. It allows the surgeon to remove more fat with less risks of bleeding.
All of the other techniques involve tumescent techniques with additional steps. There is Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) that has a mechanical handpiece that supplements the motions of the surgeon. There is Laser Assisted Lipolysis (proprietary names include SmartLipo). This technique is done in an office setting under a tumescent setting. Laser Assisted Liposuction is for SMALL volume liposuction only and often requires multiple session to remove fat.
Dr. Jeffords uses Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL) by Lysonix. The Ultrasonic Liposuction method is the most powerful way to tighten the skin. After infusion of the fat with tumescent, the ultrasound probe emulsifies the fat and tightens the skin. With this technique, there is less bruising, less swelling, and less pain. Looking at the results shows the amazing results that can be achieved with this technique.
