Liposuction has come a long way in the past decade - offering much more than simply removing excess fat.
More advanced procedures allow a good surgeon to mould the skin and underlying tissue to resculpt body parts and create a more harmonious body shape.
Men are no different to women in wanting to look their best - whether it’s dressing for work, a night out or a day at the beach. But as we age there is a point at which even the most intense regular exercise and a healthy diet will not shift those stubborn trouble spots.
In recent years, Dr Liew has adopted the Vaser High Definition Liposculpture technique, which is advanced liposculpting with ultrasonic energy. It is very effective in selectively removing unwanted fat to create a sculpted appearance requested by many men. For male patients the abdomen is the most commonly requested area for liposculpture followed by the waistline, the neck and chest.
Risks are minimal for a properly performed liposculpture and the results can be maintained if the patient keeps to a balanced lifestyle and diet.
For patients who have had a significant weight loss, they will also have excess skin to be treated which will require a formal lipoabdominoplasty or tummy tuck.
