More men than ever before are going under the knife

Recent studies have shown the number of men undergoing liposuction procedures has increased significantly in recent years and is not set to decrease any time soon.

The rise in popularity of cosmetic surgery is thought to be a side-effect of the widespread media coverage of procedures like breast implants, face lifts and liposuction amongst high profile celebrities, which has normalised cosmetic surgery and made it more appealing to the general public.

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is the removal of fat from specific areas of the body through a suction process. A weak anaesthetic liquid is injected into the fatty area to soften the tissue and to allow for the insertion of tiny plastic tubes through which the fat is ‘sucked’ out, leaving the area firmer and slimmer for a more sculpted look. The waste fat can then be treated and reinserted into the body to smooth out wrinkles of the neck and face.

Benefits of liposuction

Although losing weight can reduce the amount of fat carried by the body, the build-up in stubborn areas such as the tummy, buttocks and thighs can be notoriously hard to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. This is where liposuction comes in. Many liposuction procedures can be carried out without the need for general anaesthetic, making this a fast, effective and virtually pain-free solution for people who want to look as great as they feel.

The Ashbury Cosmetic Clinics in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast offer a range of different liposuction options for men and women, all expertly carried out by one of our professional cosmetic doctors.
