For decades, liposuction has been the surgery of choice for patients who want to shed a modest amount of excess weight to achieve more toned body contours. It has remained a plastic surgery staple not only because it is highly effective, but because it has evolved and improved along with technological advancements.
Dr. Alexander Ereso has performed liposuction surgery throughout his career in the Mountain View/San Jose region. For this procedure, he makes small incisions in the targeted area and then artfully suctions out unwanted fat cells to achieve a nicer physique for men who want to look toned rather than chubby.

Male Liposuction Candidacy
Men who are in good health overall and are close to their goal weight aside from stubborn pockets of fat are best suited for liposuction. During a consultation, Dr. Ereso will determine if you are a good candidate for liposuction and help establish reasonable expectations for what liposuction can achieve.
Benefits Of Liposuction For Men
Liposuction is a versatile surgery, capable of treating many areas on the body. Male patients commonly seek liposuction treatment on the back, abdomen, love handles, chest, thighs, chin, neck and ankles. The fat cells removed during the liposuction procedure are eliminated permanently. So long as you continue to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, your new contours should last indefinitely.
Male Liposuction Recovery And Results
Though post-liposuction swelling and bruising will peak during the first week, it will likely remain visible for a month or two. Many patients are ready to return to work after 7 to 10 days, provided their jobs are not physically demanding. You will be under strict orders from Dr. Ereso to wear a compression garment that will accelerate the healing process. It can take a few months for your body to completely heal and the full results of liposuction to manifest.
