Trimming away male fat

Like women, men have now taken the center stage in enhancing their looks. With the trend for quickly shedding a pot belly, firming the chest and shaping the rear end, working out in the gym and weight reduction through diets have become old-fashioned.

There is body fat that just won’t go away, even after dieting and spending hours exercising. Male liposculpture — a surgical procedure that removes excess fat — is increasingly becoming popular among men who have no time to hit the gym or where diets have failed. Fat from the arms, chest, midsection or thighs can be removed in several ways.

Through the tumescent technique, an anesthetic solution is injected in the desired area, making the fat firm and swollen. The fat is then surgically removed.

Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction removes fat using a tube inserted into the targeted body area. Ultrasound waves dissolve the fat, which is then suctioned out.

The procedures take only few hours to perform by trained surgeons with few untoward effects. However, doctors say that not everyone is qualified for these procedures. A thorough medical evaluation is necessary before undergoing liposculpture. Physical exercise and dieting are still the rule of thumb to becoming healthy.
