Contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not designed as a quick weight loss tool or a “shortcut” – it is a procedure that removes fat cells from stubborn areas that no amount of exercise can seemingly remove. This may be due to genetics or simply each person’s unique and individualistic body make and shape. Liposuction was very popular among women but now it is gaining traction among the men population as well. There is no denying that we live in an age where first impressions and confidence is of utmost importance. Looking good and more importantly, feeling great about your body, boosts our motivation to do better and instil a zest of life in all of us. While some people can achieve this through rigorous exercise and a healthy diet, others, while doing the same, are left with pockets of stubborn fats here and there which cannot be removed via such means. This is the reason that is driving men towards liposuction. These men basically just want to look good and feel great about themselves. Liposuction is performed under anaesthesia which makes surgical pain very minimal. On top of that, the recovery period (while varying from person to person) is generally a short one – you will be up and running in a matter of few weeks. Liposuction can virtually be done to any part of the body. The most common procedures are done on the double chin, the chest area and the hips (love handles). These are the common stubborn areas where exercise and diet have very little effect on for most people. Each patient undergoing liposuction is handled as unique cases. Every patient needs their Body Mass Index (BMI) to be measured and this will determine how much fat can be removed during liposuction. To many who are not familiar with the workings of this procedure, they see liposuction as an unhealthy and quick “shortcut” to fat loss, citing hours in the gym and a rigorous diet as the only solution. This is a myth as liposuction can only be done on fairly healthy individuals and not recommended for severely overweight patients. Many men that have undergone liposuction would later resume healthier lifestyles, more determined to keep their new shape and body proportion. There is a huge and direct effect on their confidence and self-esteem, which in turn boosts their productivity at work, allowing them to achieve more. Having a body you want is not just a matter of superficiality or appearance – the indirect effect it has on one’s psychological well-being goes far beyond that. Liposuction is the most popular cosmetic surgery among men and this is for a good reason. The stereotypical and cynical impression of liposuction has been broken down due to the increased understanding of the procedure. Liposuction can only be carried out by professionals and certified doctors who have vast experience and the technical know-how of what they are doing. Liposuction that is done in a professional and controlled manner rarely causes any side effects. Here at Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre, you’re in good hands.
