Liposuction from Dr. Pratt

As men become older, there are certain areas where fat tends to develop and stubbornly stay, even with a balanced diet and exercise. Dr. Pratt offers customized male liposuction for those seeking a more sculpted body.

More tone, more confidence 

There are two factors that make male liposuction an effective treatment for stubborn areas of fat. One is that men keep their skin elasticity fairly far into age, and another is that the areas of fat beneath the skin tend to be very vascular and firm. With Dr. Pratt’s liposuction procedure, male patients can finally get the body and confidence they want. The most commonly treated areas are:

  • Abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Chest
  • Neck and/or chin

Customized treatments

Everyone has their own unique anatomy and areas of concern. During your consultation with Dr. Pratt, he will thoroughly go over your medical history, questions, and aesthetic goals to develop a customized treatment plan to meet your specific needs.

How liposuction works

Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that removes accumulated fat by breaking up fat cells and then suctioning them out of the body through a small tube. The results are immediate.

What happens during the procedure?

Liposuction is typically performed under anesthesia with sedation to keep patients comfortable. Dr. Pratt will make small incisions in the areas where there is excess fat. These incisions are made in the natural folds of your skin so that scarring is kept to a minimum. 

Dr. Pratt will then inject a saline solution to help “loosen” the fat cells so that they’re easier to break up and remove. A thin, hollow tube (cannula) will be inserted into the incisions to break up the fat cells and vacuum them away.

Recovery from liposuction

After the liposuction procedure, you will be given a compression garment to wear in order for your body to heal and adjust. This garment should be worn for four to six weeks, and most patients are able to return to work a few days to a week after liposuction. Sponge baths are advised at first, and any strenuous activity should be avoided for the first month after treatment. 

Most patients experience swelling after liposuction, but are still able to see an immediate improvement in the shape of their body. After swelling has subsided in four to six weeks, improvements will be even more noticeable.

Final results should be apparent three months after liposuction. Patients should be aware that it is very important to maintain a healthy diet and regular exercise in order to maintain their new body. 

You will have follow-up visits with Dr. Pratt to ensure your progress is on track and you are healing properly.

Good candidates for male liposuction

Liposuction is great for nearly anyone who is either at or close to their ideal weight, but has stubborn excess fat in some areas that won’t go away with diet and exercise. Those who are considering liposuction should also be aware that it’s an ideal procedure for body contouring, but not for weight loss. Candidates should be healthy non-smokers who understand what the outcome of liposuction will be.

Why choose Dr. Pratt?

Dr. Pratt employs a hands-on approach and attention to detail that is invaluable when selecting the surgeon to work on your body. He is considerate, compassionate, and transparent, educating his patients about the procedures they will be undergoing to give them the smoothest and most stress-free treatment possible, with the best outcome. Dr. Pratt believes that plastic surgeons cannot just be aesthetic technicians; they need to be good doctors as well.

Dr. Pratt received his medical degree from the University of Florida, then went on to complete a general surgery residency at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, followed by a fellowship in plastic surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
