Liposuction is a method that can be applied to anyone who does not have a systemic health problem, who is pregnant or has not just given birth.
However, before putting application indications to people with systemic health problems such as heart disease, diabetes, etc., a few tests should be carried out and risk factors should be considered. Necessary precautions should be taken against situations that pose a danger.
Although age does not constitute an obstacle, it cannot be applied to some older patients due to age-related loss of skin elasticity.

Fat removal in men
Liposuction is the second most common plastic surgery performed by men after aesthetic nose surgery. The most common regional body fat in men is around the abdomen and on both sides of the waist.
Gynecomastia is the largest male problem. Developmental, hormonal factors or drugs used can be caused. After the underlying problem is treated, the breast gland tissue is surgically removed, while the fatty tissue of the breast is removed.
Since the male skin is thicker than the female skin, postoperative skin adaptation is better in men and is less likely to be repaired to the skin.
