One of the most common treatments for men is the liposuction, which is the term for fat removal. Men use this method in order to get rid of excessive fat especially in the area of the belly. A local collection of fat can occur at either overweight or also slim men and can have different reasons, such as ageing of skin, changes of metabolism or also constitutional aspects. A liposuction can help in either case and is an effective and reliable solution.
Information about Liposuction
A Liposuction is not also the best choice. If men are overweight in general, the result of a liposuction would not last too long because it only affects the body locally. Therefore, patients have to naturally lose weight in advance with the help of sports and a change of diet. If local fat deposits still remain afterwards, a liposuction is a useful option. When consulting a surgeon, the doctor will examine the actual skin condition in advance. If the skin contains excess skin, a lifting, for example a Tummy Tuck, has to be carried our first. Liposuction and Body Toning can often be realized during one surgery.

Liposuction in detail
The development of the surgery depends on the amount of fat that has to be removed. The surgery can either be carried out ambulatory or stationary and under either general or local anaesthesia. A more complex surgery will need more time and contains a higher burden for the body, although modern treatment methods such as water jetted liposuction is gentler.
The surgery starts with a cut the fatty area, which will be between 3-5 mm long, followed by an infiltration. This means a special fluid functioning as a narcotic, pain reliever and sodium chloride in order to relieve the pain and reduce the blood circulation. At the same time, fat cells swell and can easier be sucked off. After the effect of this fluid, tubes are used to suck off the fat tissue. Finally, the branch canals are closed and a compression girdle will be used.
Possible Complications and Aftercare
Complications cannot be excluded, however, they are rare. The patient can expect light pain, small bruises and postoperative swellings, which will disappear after a short time. Moreover, the sensibility of the affected area can be limited for a short period of time. Infections and complications of wound healings are very unusual.
The threads are pulled out after 10-14 days. Furthermore, the patient has to rest and should not do any sports or exhausting activities for up to eight weeks. Compression girdle is necessary and has to be worn depending on the part of the body and amount of fat. This compression reduces swellings and bruises and lead to a faster healing and a better regression of the skin.
The final result will be visible after six to nine months and is permanent. However, the patient should be aware of the fact that a weight gain can have a huge impact on the treated area.
