Women often choose to have liposuction performed under the chin, on their hips, thighs, and stomach, and in the under arm and breast area. For men, common sites include under the chin and around the waist. Liposuction used in the reduction of enlarged male breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia.
The procedure. The surgeon inserts a cannula through small incisions in the skin. At the other end of the tube is a vacuum-pressure unit that suctions off the fat. Following surgery, you will wear a snug dressing or garment, possibly up to several weeks, to promote skin shrinkage and to minimize swelling and skin discoloration. Improvement will become apparent after about six weeks, when most of the swelling has subsided. As healing progresses, a more proportional look will emerge. A slimmer body contour can help you feel more confident and comfortable.
