Men’s Etching Liposculpture
As we know, men often carry body fat in different areas than women. Excess fat in the midsection — also called “love handles” or a “spare tire” — can be something men try to hide by wearing baggy clothes or oversized shirts. Liposculpting is a combination of liposuction and fat grafting which enables men to get rid of most of that unsightly fat around the mid-region. How is this accomplished?
Through the latest lipo technology, liposuction for men in El Paso is now possible in the form of etching liposculpture. Men who live near Southwest Texas or New Mexico can get highly accurate liposuction and fat grafting in the privacy of Southwest Plastic Surgery’s renowned plastic surgery centers. Featuring one of the area’s top plastic surgeons, Dr. Humberto Palladino, who was recently recognized as one of the nation’s “Aesthetic Everything” Award recipients of 2013, patients are assured the very best plastic surgery services in the area.
The Procedure – What to Expect
The primary areas of focus in a male liposculpting procedure are those around the abdomen, flanks, male breast area or chest. Since everyone is shaped differently, Dr. Palladino will assess your individual concerns directly in a private consultation. Using one-of-a kind, Vectra 3D imaging technology, he can actually give you an idea of what your body will look like after the procedure (of course, hypothetically). Our Vectra 3D technology is very accurate and remains a useful tool to empower patients in the decision-making process. It also makes it possible for you to understand through detailed visual illustration exactly what Dr. Palladino is explaining to you. Imagine getting astounding before and after images of your new abdomen even before the procedure is done! At Southwest Plastic Surgery, this is just another way we are able to give you the most innovative approach to male liposuction and fat grafting.
Etching liposculpture around the midsection entails removing excess fat and cellulite, but is different than just a traditional liposculpture procedure. It removes fat between the abdominal muscles to give you the “six pack” look and a more manly physique you seek.
After assessing the corrections needed with the Vectra 3D imaging, Dr. Palladino will recommend the best type of procedure for your body type, depending on whether you seek a large or minor adjustment. In some cases, the liposuction and fat grafting combo might be more suitable for you.
Preparing for Men’s Etching Liposculpture
Any type of cosmetic surgery requires preparation. The team at Southwest Plastic Surgery will help you feel at ease and will keep you updated on the specific details of your individual liposculpting procedure. Length of time will vary, but most surgeries are performed in our Southwest Plastic Surgery AAAASF certified outpatient surgery center in El Paso, Texas.
It is not wise to drink or eat for at least eight hours prior to your men’s liposculpting procedure because of the anesthesia. Anesthesia will be administered by one of the area’s best anesthesiologists. You will receive sedatives to help your body relax during your visit. You can choose either the twilight sedation or general anesthesia, depending on whether you want to be completely asleep during your surgery. Most men opt for general anesthesia, although the choice is yours. Twilight sedation may help you to recover faster. Please plan on having transportation and a friend or relative at the surgical facility to help you get to and from your appointment. You should take some time off from work to give yourself adequate healing time. Do not smoke tobacco or drink alcohol at least two weeks before and after your surgery, as it is known to increase the risk of blood clots and/or strokes.
Make sure to avoid shaving the areas of your chest, abdomen or back right before the surgery because it opens up the pores. Tanning is also not recommended due to the exposure and vulnerability to UV rays. Avoid taking over-the-counter pain medications, like ibuprofen, aspirin or Advil. Do exactly what Dr. Palladino and his staff recommend to ensure optimum healing.
After your liposuction, fat grafting or men’s liposculpting and etching surgery, you may feel soreness or see bruising and swelling in some areas. Rest assured this is a normal part of the healing process and will go away after some time. Then, you will feel and look like a brand new version of yourself!
As we mentioned, every man has a different body type and therefore the prices vary for every individual. Southwest Plastic Surgery offers affordable men’s liposculpting and liposuction for men. You can expect to pay anywhere between $7,000 – $13,000. Costs are determined based on the type of anesthesia that will be administered, how much fat will be removed, the combination of procedures used and technologies and prescriptions given.
You will receive an estimate prior to the day of surgery. We offer affordable plastic surgery solutions for nearly every man who desires a younger, more comfortable and masculine midsection.
