Is your male belt line making an unflattering fashion statement? The male flanks aka love-handles aka male belt line are located just above the crest of the hip bone.This accumulation of fat often times bulges over the belt-line and especially when wearing pants with a tight belt. Liposuction surgery can also remove stubborn fat pockets in the following areas: inner and outer thighs, knees, hips, stomach, buttocks, chin, waist and back.
Male liposuction surgery in usually performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Dr. Case will discuss anesthesia options with you. Surgery is performed by inserting a narrow tube (cannula) through a small incision into the affected area. The fat cells are broken up with a saline solution and removed through the tube.
Surgical results are typically permanent as lont as a patient is able to maintain a stable weight. The downtime from surgery is minimal and most patients can return to work within a week.
