Liposuction of the hips for men targets the area just above the waist, the area commonly referred to as the “love handles” or “spare tire.” Liposuction of the thighs targets the inner and outer thighs on the legs. The unique problem areas in and around the flanks, hips, and thighs can be substantially improved resulting in a more proportioned overall body contour.
Patients report that clothes fit better, legs don’t rub against each other, and overall improved self-esteem with these simple yet very effective liposuction options. When combined with additional liposuction procedures, the results can be very dramatic.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING LIPOSUCTION SURGERY?
A small incision is made in a natural crease of the skin or some other inconspicuous place. A hollow, pen-like device, called a canula, is inserted into the skin. The canula is used to take out the fat.
If using VASER® Lipo, the canula helps to dissolve the fat before the excess is taken out. Patients are sent home wearing a compression garment to help with the swelling.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECOVER FROM LIPOSUCTION SURGERY?
Austin-Weston liposuction patients return the following day and incisions are checked. A new garment is put on and patients are taught how to wear it.
A week later, patients return and stitches are removed. You will then be given instructions on how long to wear your garment.
Liposuction patients will experience some swelling and bruising, but overall the recovery is not difficult.
