Lipo, or liposuction, for men is used to remove fat deposits that have not responded to diet and exercise. The waistline is often an area of concern, as fat tends to accumulate on the sides of the abdomen and the lower back, forming rolls, or “love handles.”
A liposuction procedure to treat male love handles generally begins with several small incisions made near the treatment site. A cannula, or hollow tube, is inserted toward the underlying fat, and is moved around to break up fat deposits before being suctioned out. If the ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) method is used, a tumescent solution is first injected into the treatment area, which aids in the breakdown of fat cells. The cannula used will emit ultrasonic vibrations to help liquefy fat before removal. UAL is a popular alternative to traditional lipo for men, as it decreases the risk of scarring, bleeding, and excessive tissue damage.
