Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Doherty has noticed an increasing number of male patients requesting liposuction
Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/19/2016 -- More male patients than ever are requesting liposuction procedures – and Boston-based plastic surgeon Sean Doherty, MD, has seen incredible foot traffic in his own downtown Boston and Concord, MA practice.
"It's remarkable how many male patients are scheduling consultations for liposuction," says Dr. Doherty. "In fact, about 10% of my liposuction patients are made up of men. Most of these patients are requesting fat removal for the chest, abdomen, waist, and chin areas.
"I expect these numbers to continue going up as more men become comfortable with the idea of undergoing plastic surgery," he adds.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, liposuction was the most popular surgical procedure requested by male patients in 2014, followed closely by nose surgery, eyelid surgery, male chest surgery, and facelifts.
"It's important for male patients to know that liposuction isn't the answer to weight loss," Dr. Doherty points out. "The best candidates for this procedure are close to their ideal weight, but are having trouble losing stubborn fat around the waist, chest, or other areas."
Dr. Doherty recommends undergoing local liposuction with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Patients should expect two to three days of downtime; they should also wear a compression garment 24/7 for three weeks, and then 12 hours per day for two months.
Dr. Doherty has two plastic surgery practices, both of which are located in the greater metro Boston area. His original practice is located in Concord, MA, and his newest location can be found on Newbury Street in Boston.
