Liposuction For Men Atlanta
Dr. Jeffords is the 2018 speaker for male body contouring and liposuction for the Plastic Surgery Education Network
Tired of that belly or lovehandle fat that just won’t go away with diet and exercise? Men have fat deposits that are “genetic gifts”. These areas will not go away with diet and exercise. Common areas for liposuction in men are the abdomen, lovehandles, chest, and chin.
Liposuction is a procedure that can help define 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,” remains the Gold Standard for body contouring.
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. Freezing subcutaneous fat (“Cool Sculpting”) is another marketed way to reduce fat.
Dr. Jeffords uses traditional Tumescent Liposuction to perform his liposuction. It is the safest technique with very predictable results. There is no risk for skin injury with Tumescent Liposuction as with the other techniques. High Definition Liposuction (sometimes called Ab Etching) is performed with this technique. Amazing results that can be achieved with this very safe technique.
