Liposuction for Men in Louisville – Dr. Lee Corbett
A common myth Dr. Corbett hears about cosmetic surgery is that it is just for women. Ironically, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), men made up 13 percent of all surgical procedures performed in 2016. Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for men. It was the fourth most popular male procedure in 2016, with an increase of 5% over the year prior. Liposuction removes targeted areas of fat in order to contour the body. In men, it is commonly used to treat the neck, chest, abdomen, and flanks.
Liposuction for Men: What Are My Options?
Traditional Liposuction, Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction (UAL) and Laser Liposuction, SmartLipo, are available to remove areas of excess fat (“saddle bags,” “man boobs,” “turkey neck,” and “double chin”). Multiple areas can be treated in one setting, and liposuction is often used to refine the results of other plastic surgery procedures. One of the most appealing aspects of SmartLipo for men is that treatment is less invasive and there is less downtime required. SmartLipo can actually tighten the skin by encouraging collagen production, which is beneficial for people who have poor skin elasticity and who would like a tighter, more youthful appearance.
What Can I Expect?
While the goal is to improve body shape and appearance, liposuction can change your life in a number of ways. Below are a examples of what our patients have experienced:
- Look and feel better physically
- Are motivated to lead healthier lives
- Feel more self confident with improved self esteem
- Think they are more successful at work
- Say women find them more attractive
Where Does the Procedure Take Place?
While Dr. Corbett performs liposuction surgery in an outpatient facility, he does his laser liposuction (SmartLipo) from his Louisville practice location.
Male patients are made comfortable with general anesthesia.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
Liposuction lasts from 45 minutes to several hours, depending on the number of areas undergoing treatment. During your initial consultation, Dr. Corbett will discuss options with you as well share many before and after pictures of liposuction patients to see what type of results you can anticipate.
Liposuction can be performed on an outpatient basis. In general, most patients are fine to go home.
Most of our male patients lead active lives and are anxious to return to their activities as soon as possible after surgery. While everyone heals differently, most men are ready to return to work within several days of surgery and resume exercise in 1-2 weeks.
After surgery you should plan on at least 2 to 4 follow-up visits. Each case is individualized to address your needs.
As with any cosmetic procedure, complications can occur and are best discussed at the time of your consultation. It is essential that patients be aware of any potential complications before undergoing liposuction.
Costs range is from $2,500 to $6,500. This range takes into account the number of treatment areas as well additional time required for each area. Estimated pricing is inclusive Hospital Costs, Anesthesia Fees, and Surgeon’s Fees. Note, while this cost range represents an estimate, the final fee is based on each patient’s unique treatment plan and can only be determined with a consultation.
