Liposuction is a widely popular procedure among many men. Excess fat can be removed to give you a sculpted, more athletic body proportion. The procedure is highly-individualized making it ideal for just about any body type. At Image Surgical Arts of Nashville, we use the latest equipment and techniques to give you the best possible outcome with the least amount of recovery time.

At your initial consultation with Dr. Harris, you’ll undergo a full physical examination, and talk about your ultimate goals. Once treatment areas are determined, you’ll schedule your liposuction treatment at Image Surgical Arts ’s state-of-the-art surgical center in Nashville, TN. Your surgeon will make small incisions making way for the insertion of thin cannula tubes. Fat is then gently removed via suction technology.
Results from liposuction are immediate, especially if large amounts of fat stores have been removed. As swelling subsides over the course of a few weeks, your new shape will continue to develop. Final results may not be evident until 4-6 months post-treatment. You’ll benefit from an overall sculpted appearance, and clothing will begin to fit better.
Depending on the treatment area and amount of fat being removed, you’ll be given either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation with a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Soreness may occur as anesthesia begins to wear off and for several days after your liposuction. The majority of pain will dissipate after about 1-week, but you may feel easily fatigued for upwards of 2-4 weeks. Pain levels can be easily managed with OTC or prescription medication.
If you are bothered by excess fat throughout your body and would like a boost in self-confidence, liposuction may be a good fit. Men who are in good general health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about what the procedure can do for them are more likely to achieve desired results.
