Seattle Liposuction for Men
Reduce fat & refine your physique with the #1 body sculpting procedure
Are you frustrated with fat pockets that won’t budge, no matter how much time you spend at the gym? Getting rid of annoying fat bulges isn’t always as simple as sticking to a healthy diet and logging X number of burpees. We’re each genetically programmed to store fat in certain areas—commonly the belly, lovehandles, chest, back, or chin. The older we get, the harder it is to reduce fat in these trouble spots.
Instead of fighting genetics, why not outsmart it? Liposuction can remove excess fat cells from specific areas of your body, helping you gain a slimmer, firmer physique. Liposuction can also be a great option to treat gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Alex Sobel is highly experienced in liposuction for men and specializes in advanced techniques designed to maximize safety and results and minimize recovery time.
About liposuction surgery in Seattle
Dr. Sobel performs liposuction using either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the extent of surgery and your preferences. He is skilled in a variety of liposuction techniques, including high-definition (HD) tumescent liposuction, which incorporates an anesthetic fluid to minimize post-procedure swelling and discomfort and assists Dr. Sobel in achieving a more “chiseled” appearance to your abs and other muscles.
Because he uses very thin tubes (cannulae) to remove unwanted fat and sculpt an area, Dr. Sobel can perform liposuction through tiny slit-like incisions, typically < 3 mm in length. Once healed, these incisions are usually undetectable to others.
“Dr. Sobel and his entire staff are terrific. Very positive results and experience. Dr. Sobel takes the time to find out what you want and expect. He is a skilled surgeon with fantastic results. I would highly recommend!” -Actual Patient
How long is recovery after liposuction?
Pain is typically minimal after liposuction; most patients say they feel intense soreness for several days, similar to how they feel after a hard workout. You will need to mostly rest and avoid strenuous activity for the first few days and wear a compression garment for up to 6 weeks to help control post-procedure swelling and discomfort and help your new, slimmer shape heal optimally.
Patients with a desk job are typically ready to go back to work within 3 days, and workouts can be gradually resumed beginning 2 to 3 weeks after surgery. Significant improvements are noticeable within the first month, and final results are typically in place within 6 months. Dr. Sobel will provide specific instructions for your recovery during your pre- and post-op appointments.
Am I a good liposuction candidate?
If you are bothered by stubborn fat deposits on your face and body, liposuction can be an effective, long-lasting solution. However, it’s not a catch-all body contouring procedure. You’ll get the best results if:
- You want to reduce fat in specific areas, such as: belly, lovehandles, back, chest, knees, calves, double chin, etc.
- You are at or near your ideal body weight. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure.
- Your weight is reasonably stable. Significant weight fluctuations can detract from your results.
- You have good skin contraction. Loose, excess skin cannot be addressed with liposuction; in fact, removing fat in areas with loose skin can make skin laxity worse.
During a private consultation, Dr. Sobel can go over the expected results with liposuction and help you make a confident decision about your procedure options.
