Liposuction And Body Reshaping For Men
In Berlin

Liposuction is a plastic surgery procedure that helps reshape the body and restores body contour. It restores proportional shape by removing excess and stubborn fat deposit lying underneath the skin. This procedure is very popular and is commonly done around the world, including Berlin.This invasive plastic surgery targets under the chin, abdomen, flanks (love handles), back, thigh, chest, buttocks, calves, neck, ankles and arms. By reducing the isolated fat in these areas that have refused to respond to exercise or diet, it gives your body the shape you have been looking for.

It is common for women to undergo plastic surgery in Berlin and in other places, however women are not the only ones cut out for such surgeries. As men grow older, some fat deposits often refuse to budge to exercise, as a result of the body’s reduced ability to metabolize fat, or even as a result of poor diet. Such men who care about their looks may opt for liposuction as a way to reshape their body. However, liposuction is not an alternative to exercise and diet, or a solution to obesity. It may be considered as a jump-start for weight loss.

WHO CAN UNDERGO LIPOSUCTION?

The most suitable candidates of liposuction are:

• Individuals who are not very far from their ideal body weight. This ensures that your skin is still firm and elastic, and is able to return to shape after some fat has been removed from your body and you have lost a few pounds.

• Patients whose medical conditions cannot hinder healing.

• Individuals that do not smoke.

• Individuals who already live a healthy life style of exercise and diet and are bothered about isolated fat deposit that have refused to respond to work out.

The most important thing to consider before having a liposuction is the skin’s elasticity. Non smokers within an ideal body weight whose skin have not been severely damaged by the sun have a lesser probability of having sagging skin after the procedure.

In order to have a more natural result, it is important to go to an experienced plastic surgeon, as well as meet the above criteria.

This does not mean that individuals who do not meet these criteria have lost all hope of any solution. It simply means that they will not be requiring liposuction alone as a means to reshape their body. Liposuction may be performed with other procedures in order to get the desired result. Consulting with an experienced plastic surgeon is a sure way to determine the proper procedures you need.

ADVANTAGES OF HAVING A LIPOSUCTION

• Liposuction is often the only solution required for restoring your body contour.

• Liposuction treats several areas in just one procedure.

• Liposuction gives a natural result.

• The procedure can be done with either a general anesthesia or a local anesthesia.

HOW IT IS DONE

Liposuction involves removing fat cells from areas where fat easily deposit by means of suction.

First, the surgeon marks the part of the body where fat will be removed. Then, the marked areas are injected with a medication that would help reduce swelling and blood loss. The medication is diluted fluid made up of a capillary constrictor and a local anesthetic

Fat cells are then broken before small incisions are made.

Afterwards, metallic tubes (cannulas) are inserted, before a suction tube is passed through the metallic tubes where it further breaks down body fat before sucking it out. The cannula helps the surgeon make a controlled motion when trying to dislodge the fat.

After excess fat has been removed, excess fluid that was injected in the body and blood will be drained before the incisions are stitched up. In most cases, the incisions are not completely stitched up to allow complete drainage of the excess fluid.

The procedure usually lasts about 1 -3 hours, except in the situation where a lot of fat is to be removed.

DIFFERENT LIPOSUCTION TECHNIQUES

There are different liposuction techniques available. Each of these techniques has its advantages and short comings as well. A plastic surgeon selects the technique best suited to the patient.

Power Assisted Liposuction:

This technique uses a high frequency vibrating tool to facilitate fat break down before suction. Breaking down fat allows it to be easily moved in areas such as the upper abdomen.

Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction:

This technique requires an experienced surgeon as it poses the risk of burns. It uses an ultrasonic energy to melt body fat making it easier to remove larger volumes at a time.

Vaser Liposuction:

This technique functions like the UAL described above. However, it uses a grooved cannula that helps disperse energy evenly.

Laser Assisted Liposuction:

This technique functions like the UAL and the Vaser Liposuction. However, this technique utilizes low energy instead. It takes a long time and requires a surgeon who has experience working with it.

RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction, just like every surgery has some level of risk. However, when the procedure is done by an expert surgeon, complications are reduced.

Complications to look out for are; body irregularities, infection, hematoma, scarring, bleeding and skin discoloration. When any of these happens it is best to report quickly to the doctor who performed the procedure.

RECOVERY

After undergoing a Liposuction, patients are usually advised to take about a week off from doing strenuous activities as this will elongate recovery.

A compression garment worn for a period of 3-6 weeks helps to reduce bruising and swelling as a result of fluid in the body yet to be drained. It also helps in the retraction of loose skin.

In addition, carefully following your doctor’s instructions is pertinent to a quicker recovery and the expected result.

It usually takes a few months to begin to see the results of the liposuction. Patients are however required to observe for 12 months before they can consider a revision.

For some people, residual swelling as a result of fluids may persist for a longer time making it appear like a weight gain but this usually resolves with time, and you will begin to notice some improvement in your body contour.

How long does the result last?

The improvement in your body contour is expected to last as long as you continue to maintain a proper lifestyle of exercise and diet.
