Men battling the inevitability of “middle aged spread” know how frustrating it can be: You try to eat well and make time to hit the gym, but the demands of career and family leave you little time for fitness. Meanwhile, a slowing metabolism and waning testosterone levels make fat much harder to lose than it was when you were in your twenties.
Then one day, someone in your life—often a female friend, a relative, or even your partner—tries liposuction, and the results blow you away. After just one session, “problem areas” that wouldn’t budge for months are suddenly gone, leaving a toned, youthful physique. If you’ve ever experienced this, you probably immediately started wondering whether liposuction was a “girls only” procedure or if all genders can benefit from it equally. If you have, we have good news for you: Modern liposuction techniques have revolutionized the male body sculpting industry, and today male liposuction is rapidly increasing in popularity.
What Are the Benefits of Male Liposuction?
If you’re fed up with your “Dad bod” and the gym simply isn’t yielding the results you want, liposuction may be the right choice for you. Liposuction has all of the following benefits for men:
- It’s a safe, convenient procedure. Modern liposuction techniques are more than capable of dealing with the firmer, more fibrous fat that men have. Most male patients report the procedure as being relatively painless and it can usually be completed in just one day. Healing time is also minimal.
- It can “spot reduce” fat. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not possible to spot reduce fat via exercise alone. As reported by Medical Daily, “Within each fat cell is a fat known as triglycerides, which muscles are unable to use for energy, according to Yale Scientific. Exercise breaks down triglycerides into glycerol and free fatty acids that subsequently travel through the bloodstream to the muscles they’re providing energy for… Those fats get broken down all over the body during exercise, making it virtually impossible to target a single area.” What this means is that in order to get truly defined abs, most people have to get down to a very low bodyfat percentage—which is extremely difficult and possibly even dangerous. Liposuction, which puts less strain on the body overall, is the usually the better option.
- It can treat embarrassing problems like gynecomastia. Gynecomastia (male breast enlargement) can result from a number of different factors and conditions, such as hormonal changes and some prescription medications. Fortunately, liposuction can effectively treat this condition and restore your chest to normal.
In addition to the direct benefits outlined above, male liposuction often leads to enhanced confidence and self-esteem, better opportunities at work, and increased motivation to stay in shape. For most guys, the rewards are more than worth the investment. Want your investment in good hands? Contact the Grace Clinic for a consultation on liposuction.
