Men and Vaser Liposuction

Men are frequently troubled by exercise-resistant pockets of fat in certain areas as they age. In many cases, this problem is genetic; their bodies are programmed to store fat in those areas, and no amount of exercise will eliminate it.

For men with good skin elasticity and only a moderate amount of fat, VASER Lipo® or liposuction alone can provide a solution for neck or body contouring. Vaser Liposuction has recently been shown by Dr. Vanek and many other clinical investigators to result in up to 53% more skin contraction than traditional liposuction technique. The VASER Lipo® procedure is a minimally-invasive form of liposuction that uses ultrasound waves to destroy unwanted fat deposits.

“This is a great procedure for treating the neck, axilla, arms, back, abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, knees, and calves,” says Dr. Vanek. “Men have just an inch-deep layer of subcutaneous fat; the rest is intra-abdominal or visceral fat that will only shrink when he loses weight. But I want to be upfront: this is not an effective treatment for a man’s beer belly. The beer belly is impenetrable. The only solution for that is to lose weight through proper dieting and exercise.”

Dr. Vanek will meet with you one-on-one to speak about target areas, incisions, cost, risks and benefits, and any other questions you may have. He will attend to you himself in all of your follow-up care and will offer advice and support for further weight loss efforts.

“I pride myself on catering to the individual needs of my patients, and I think patients who are interested in body contouring deserve to have someone who sees them from start to finish, and who performs the surgery themselves,” explains Dr. Vanek, a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. “I can talk with you about your goals and our respective perfectionism and say, ‘What’s going to give us the longest-lasting result and what will make you very happy?’ If there is more than one choice, I have the ability to explain the difference in outcomes in a forthright way. That’s where having a doctor who has more than one arrow in his quiver becomes indispensable.”

In addition, we now offer one area VASER Lipo® in our office procedure room. A patient that meets certain criteria can come into our office in Concord and have a local anesthetic as well as the option of using our Pronox, nitrous oxide unit, to make them very comfortable during the procedure.

If you are interested, men or women, in a complimentary consultation to get more information on VASER Lipo® and see if you are a candidate, please reach out to our staff to schedule an appointment.
