Liposuction – Men

Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after liposuction surgeons in Palm Beach. His attention to detail and methodical technique create beautiful and natural results. Liposuction continues to be the most common cosmetic surgery performed in the United States and in Florida. It provides improvement in body contour and shape by selectively removing areas of excess fatty tissue. During the early stages of human development the fat cells are distributed around the body. When a person gains weight these fat cells do not multiply, but rather retain more fatty tissue inside leading to undesirable bulges. Liposuction removes some of these fatty cells, and may lead to permanent changes in body shape that persist even after weight gain! Dr. Rueda encourages patient’s to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain the results. There are known advantages to liposuction surgery: -Restoration of shape and contour of the body-Removal of excess body fat -Enhances motivation to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle

Palm Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Rueda performs liposuction surgery using the tumescent method.

Patients with excess fatty tissue in the face, neck, arms, chest, abdomen, back, hips, flanks, buttocks, thighs, or knees are ideal candidates. The best candidates have good skin quality and elasticity. Patients with striae or lax skin usually require a procedure to remove or tighten the skin.

RECOVERY AND DOWNTIME

This is an ambulatory procedure, where you get to go home the same day. There is tightness, swelling and bruising for a few days after surgery. No drains are used. Usually a bandage is placed and removed in 48 hours. Dr. Rueda has the patients wear a compressive garment to reduce swelling and assist in body contouring. The procedure is performed under twilight sedation or may be done under local anesthesia for small areas.

Most patients generally return to work in 3 days to 1 week. Exercise is allowed at 4 weeks after surgery.

A WORD ON OVERCORRECTION AND REVISION LIPOSUCTION

Liposuction surgery is truly an art of sculpting. It requires an experienced surgeon like Dr. Rueda to know when to stop the contouring.  The most common problem Dr. Rueda has seen from liposuction performed elsewhere is over correction leading to irregular surfaces.

The best method to avoid overcorrection is prevention; this is why the skill of the surgeon becomes so important. Expert surgeons like Dr. Rueda focus on the shape and contour, not solely on the amount of fat removal. For those patient’s who have already developed contour irregularities Dr. Rueda may use a combination of liposuction, internal scar release, and fat grafting to improve their outcome.
