Male Liposuction in Sarasota with Dr. Kristopher Hamwi

Everyone knows that diet and exercise are essential to a healthy lifestyle. For men, maintaining a trim and athletic figure becomes more difficult with age. Over time, men can develop small pockets of stubborn fat deposits that can accumulate around the abdomen, flanks, breasts, chin, and neck. These problem areas often do not respond well to weight loss or exercise.

Male liposuction may provide the solution to gaining the trim, ideal figure you want when traditional strategies have failed to help you reach your aesthetic goals. As men’s skin retains elasticity longer than women’s, the fat beneath is firmer, making male liposuction a very effective body sculpting tool.

It’s time to reclaim your toned body with Sarasota’s best male liposuction surgeon. Contact Florida Plastic Surgery to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kristopher Hamwi by calling 941-800-2000 or completing our online form today.

What is Male Liposuction?

Liposuction for men is a safe plastic surgery procedure for the permanent reduction of subcutaneous fat. It is a versatile treatment aimed at targeting smaller deposits of fat to sculpt a leaner appearance. Traditionally, areas treated with male liposuction include:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Breasts (gynecomastia)
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Other areas that do not respond to exercise

While liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, it can be an outstanding way to reduce fat that resists diet and exercise. Ideal candidates for liposuction are healthy men close to their target weight who might have stubborn pockets of fat on their bodies.

What are the Benefits of Male Body Contouring with Liposuction?

You are working hard to achieve the ideal male body—a trim, athletic build with broad shoulders and chest, a lean abdomen, and narrow hips and thighs. Combining liposuction with your current healthy lifestyle might be the answer to help improve the appearance of your body with long-lasting results.

After your liposuction procedure, the fat cells removed will not grow back. This means that the results will be permanent. However, the remaining fat cells can still grow larger, so maintaining your healthy diet and exercise is necessary.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for Sarasota Liposuction for Men?

Ideal candidates for male liposuction in Florida include healthy men who are close to their target body weight but may still have pockets of stubborn fat. Liposuction is a body sculpting treatment rather than an alternative to healthy weight-loss, so it isn’t for those who are significantly overweight. If you feel that liposuction for men may benefit you, Dr. Hamwi encourages you to meet with him to see how he can help.

How Does Dr. Hamwi Perform Male Liposuction in Tampa, FL?

Dr. Hamwi uses a technique called awake liposuction. The procedure is completed while the patient is medicated yet still awake and able to participate by contracting muscles in different positions. This allows for the utmost control when removing fat from delicate areas.

Awake liposuction is a much safer and more effective procedure than traditional liposuction because patients are not under general anesthesia.

During male liposuction, men may also choose to have excess skin excised in addition to fat removal. This procedure is typical in men experiencing gynecomastia. Men who have experienced massive weight loss may also opt for abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, to remove the excess fat and tighten the abdominal muscles.

What Can I Expect During a Male Liposuction Procedure?

Each liposuction procedure will vary depending on the specifics of your treatment plan. However, you can expect some standard steps to happen:

You’ll arrive approximately an hour before your scheduled surgery to meet with Dr. Hamwi and your anesthesia provider. Dr. Hamwi uses local anesthesia for liposuction, which means you will be awake for the procedure’s duration. You will be safe and feel no pain during the process.

Once you are safely anesthetized, Dr. Hamwi will begin your liposuction procedure by making small incisions at the treatment site.

During liposuction, the treatment areas are injected with a solution that contains saline, lidocaine, and epinephrine to numb the tissue, control bleeding, and prepare the tissue for the procedure.

Once the fat is isolated, it is gently extracted from the treatment site with a thin, hollow rod, leaving you with a smoother, trimmer figure.

After your liposuction procedure, dressings will be applied, and you may be outfitted in compression garments.

How Soon Will I See My Sarasota Male Liposuction Results?

Most patients notice immediate improvements to their shape following male liposuction. You may experience swelling that temporarily obstructs your results, but this should subside within weeks.

You will continue to see improved results as your body heals and adjusts, leaving the treated areas with a leaner, more sculpted appearance.

Dr. Hamwi’s dedication to his patients’ means he will educate you on ways to sustain your results, including maintaining your healthy diet and exercise regimen.
