Male Liposuction New York City
Diet and exercise aren’t always enough to achieve the results you want. As you get older, it can become increasingly difficult to trim away the areas of stubborn fat. Time spent at work, genetics, and several other factors can be preventing you from a well-contoured and better-toned body. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega are trained in providing men with the more masculine contours they desire through male liposuction procedures.
What is liposuction?
Liposuction for men is a safe and effective way to effectively treat excess fat from the body. Depending on the person and body type, certain areas may be resistant to toning or size reduction from diet and exercise. Tickle Lipo or Lunchtime Lipo are other less invasive forms of liposuction that effectively minimize smaller amounts of fat.
Is liposuction right for me?
Men wishing to treat fat from their love handles, abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, back, chest, arms, face, calves, or ankles can benefit significantly from the slimming and toning effects of liposuction. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega are very skilled in the nuances of both male and female bodies. Their attention to natural results ensures that the new contours of your body will maintain characteristically masculine lines.
Morbidly obese patients can achieve drastic weight loss through a carefully constructed series of liposuction procedures. However, it is important to remember that liposuction is not an alternative to diet and exercise. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to enjoy long-lasting results.
How soon can I have liposuction?
If you are in good medical standing and are under the age of 40, you may schedule your liposuction appointment just after your consultation with Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega. Patients over 40 will need medical clearance from their general physician.
How soon will I see the liposuction results?
Your liposuction results will be evident immediately after surgery. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega pay expert attention to appropriate, yet significant, fat removal and even, natural contouring. In the days and weeks following your liposuction, the swelling will subside and your new, toned body will be even more appreciated.
What do I need to do to prepare for liposuction?
Blood-thinning medication and NSAIDs such as aspirin, Advil® or ibuprofen, and Aleve® must be avoided 10-14 days before and after surgery. Smoking must also cease during this time period.
How is male liposuction performed?
Liposuction is performed on men and women in the same way, but will be customized to meet each patient’s unique goals, existing condition, and desired outcome. Dr. Karlinsky will conduct the entire procedure herself for optimal safety, using a liposuction cannula to minimize excess fat. Depending on the degree of your fat removal, the procedure will either be performed under local or general anesthesia. Liposuction under local anesthesia involves the use of a numbing injection. During the actual procedure, patients typically report a tickling or vibrating sensation and some mild pressure.
How long does male liposuction take?
Most liposuction procedures take just an hour or so.
Do I have to stay overnight after liposuction?
There is no need to stay overnight after your liposuction, regardless of whether you had local or general anesthesia. For safety reasons, you should arrange for a ride home after the procedure.
How long does recovery take?
Men who have liposuction under local anesthesia often head back to work the same day. Your small incision will be covered with a bandage to protect your clothing from leaking fluid which was used during the procedure. If your liposuction was performed under general anesthesia, then you will need to return home to rest.
How long do I have to wait after liposuction before exercising?
You should be able to return to your exercise routine in about 7-10 days.
What are the risks of liposuction?
Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega perform highly safe and effective liposuction. General surgical risks may include skin irregularities, bleeding, or infection.
Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega’s cell phone immediately.
How long do liposuction results last?
Your fat removal is long lasting as long as you continue to live a healthy lifestyle of good diet and exercise habits. Fat will never re-grow in the areas where liposuction was performed. It is certainly possible to gain weight after liposuction and you should work to preserve your investment and prevent uneven weight gain through healthy lifestyle choices.
