Plastic Surgery for Men in Long Island

For patients considering plastic surgery for men, Long Island patients should select a physician who is board-certified, has extensive experience, performs surgery in an accredited outpatient facility, and is someone they feel comfortable with and can trust. Board-certified Dr. Arnold Breitbart has extensive experience in facial rejuvenation and body contouring techniques. One of the most frequently requested procedures is liposuction for men.
Long Island patients that desire a more attractive body figure, undergo this procedure to remove unwanted fat below the skin employing a cannula or hollow tube. Generally performed under general anesthesia, this procedure removes fat from the abdomen, upper back area, thighs, flanks, neck, and chin. Liposuction is not a substitute for healthy weight loss through dieting or exercise. Instead, it helps remove excess fatty tissue that stubbornly persists despite healthy eating and exercise. Through plastic surgery for men, Long Island patients can enhance their appearance significantly.

Liposuction for Men in Long Island

The best candidates for liposuction are men and women in good health, who despite good nutrition and exercise, are unable to remove fat from certain localized areas. One of the most frequently used techniques is tumescent liposuction for men. Long Island patients often prefer this method because it is very safe and minimizes blood loss. Tumescent solution is injected into fatty tissue, which in turn becomes swollen and can be then removed during this method of liposuction for men. Long Island’s Dr. Breitbart carefully sutures incisions and the body instantly begins to recover.
For plastic surgery for men, Long Island patients should expect a recovery time of at least four to seven days and avoid strenuous activity for at least two to three weeks. After plastic surgery for men, Long Island patients typically notice dramatic improvement in their appearance as well as a boost in self-esteem. When considering plastic surgery such as liposuction for men, Long Island’s Dr. Breitbart provides patients with an initial consultation to determine the best surgical method for them based upon their desired outcome, current health, and medical history. Patients should have someone else drive them after surgery because they will still have the effects of anesthesia. Cosmetic surgery can range from facelifts and eyelid surgery to abdominoplasty, breast lifts and revisions for women, to gynecomastia and liposuction for men.
