Do you have any idea what the most popular cosmetic surgery for men was last year? According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), it was liposuction by a landslide, at almost 52,000 procedures. There’s an interesting evolutionary explanation about why men may need this procedure that removes unwanted fat deposits not even the Paleo diet can touch.
From Caveman to Lipo Patient
A man’s body has been trained to store fat deposits above the waist in part because of his genetic makeup. This was once a survival mechanism—these fat stores kicked in with a fight-or-flight type of response as prehistoric man hunted for large game—but today there really isn’t a need for this layer of fat. The effects of this genetic coding may plague modern men in undesirable ways, leaving some men feeling self-conscious about how their bodies look. It can turn experiences that most of us find enjoyable, such as going to the beach or spending an afternoon by the pool, into stressful situations that some men avoid.
A man can take excellent care of his body his whole life and still suffer from these darned fat deposits—thank you, genetics! The liposuction procedure can finally give him the lean, proportional body he’s been working toward.
Liposuction Tackles Tough Fat Deposits All Over the Body
Liposuction is a versatile contouring procedure that is appropriate practically anywhere in the body. It can be used on other troublesome areas for men, such as the chin, neck, upper arms, armpits, hips, thighs, inner knees, calves—even the ankles. Enlarged male breasts can sometimes be treated with liposuction too, producing a more manly chest.
The great news is that liposuction permanently removes fat cells from the body, so as long as patients continue eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, the improvements from the procedure can be maintained indefinitely.
