Liposuction With BodyBanking® procedure for Men in Chicago

The liposuction procedure for men in Chicago starts with the injection of a solution composed of saline (salt water) mixed with a local anesthetic and a small amount of adrenaline. This is done to reduce bruising and bleeding. In the medical world, this is known as either the super-wet technique or the tumescent technique, depending on the ratio of fluid to the tissue that’s being removed.

Then, after this solution has been put into the area planned for treatment, the doctor proceeds with one of two specialized methods of liposuction currently approved by plastic surgeons. These two options are suction-assisted lipectomy (called SAL) or ultrasonic-assisted lipectomy (known as UAL).

With both methods, a tiny incision gets made in a discreet place. In the case of SAL, a cannula (small tube) is then inserted and moved back and forth beneath the skin. This works by breaking up the fat layer and suctioning it out.

With UAL, ultrasonic energy gets used to liquefy fat before it is suctioned out with a cannula. This is a more techy approach.

Depending on how much fatty tissue is being removed, a standard liposuction surgery for men could last from 1 to 5 hours in Dr. Steinbrech’s Chicago clinic.

Liposuction Recovery

After the surgery is complete, Dr. Steibrech may need drainage tubes, compression garments, and antibiotics to help the healing process for recovery. Male liposuction patients are strongly encouraged to walk as soon as they are able to do so. Many will be able to return to work within a few days, but strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month.

Results of Liposuction

Results of liposuction are visible immediately, and improvement often continues as swelling subsides during the first three months for male patients in Chicago after their surgery.

Risks of Liposuction

Generally speaking, liposuction is a low-risk procedure. Risks are particularly uncommon for men when the liposuction surgery is performed by a qualified doctor on a man who’s in relatively good health.

Nevertheless, they do occur from time to time, and can include the following:

  • Bacterial infection
  • Recovery delays
  • Fat clots and/or blood clotting
  • Shock
  • Fluid accumulation in treated areas
  • Mild burns
  • Perforation injuries
  • Lidocaine toxicity
  • Unfavorable anesthesia or reactions

Though rare, it’s possible to see irregularities in appearance, including asymmetry, “baggy” skin, numbness, tingling, or skin pigmentation changes.
