Once taboo in our society, liposuction is now on the rise among men looking to improve the shape of their bodies. According to Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel, this rise in popularity is the result of increased media coverage, improved techniques, better results and more affordable prices. The most common areas men are having treated include the abdomen, chest and chin.
While men are surprisingly open to getting liposuction to reduce their belly fat, they still tend to keep the procedure a secret from their friends, but that is slowly changing as well.
Which is the most common area treated?
Your Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon reports that the abdomen is by far the most common area treated with liposuction for men, with a close second being the male chest to treat gynecomastia or “man boobs.”
Most men who opt for a liposuction procedure have failed to shape their body via traditional diet and exercise and have been unable to reach their health and fitness goals. Liposuction can give these men a substantial boost in motivating them in their quest to look and feel better about themselves.
And with more male celebrities stepping forward and speaking up about their cosmetic procedures, it seems to be much more socially acceptable for men to consider liposuction and other cosmetic procedures. There have also been considerable improvements to liposuction techniques by your Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon, which have yielded more consistent results. Of course, more affordable rates have led to the rise in popularity as well.
Does age Matter?
As they age, many men find that they simply don’t have the time to exercise as much as they need to in order to achieve their goals. Since liposuction permanently removes fat, they get a significant boost to a better body and a shape that is much easier to maintain with simple diet and exercise.
However, Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Abergel warns that liposuction should not replace diet and exercise and recommends continuing with a sustainable diet and exercise program.
