A lasting way to trim stubborn fat, invest in your quality of life: Liposuction for men in Jupiter, FL

Posted By

Liposuction for Men in Jupiter FL Area
Many of us have stubborn fat pockets that we can’t simply exercise or diet away. These resistant zones of localized fatty areas tend to arise as we get older and undergo hormonal changes. Some medical conditions and medications can affect how fat is distributed, and may also contribute to hormone imbalances. Liposuction for men in Jupiter FL at the office of A Center for Dermatology effectively trims inches from around the middle and restores confidence among those patients suffering from enlarged breast tissue or gynecomastia.

The abdomen, flanks, and chest are common areas for liposuction treatment, skillfully performed by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Peter Vitulli. Men tend to develop “potbellies” and “love handles,” due to sex-specific differences in how fat is stored. Women are prone to excess fat around the hips and on the thighs. Additionally, one of every four men between the ages of 50 to 69 will develop gynecomastia due to fluctuating hormones in older age.

A great value – invest in yourself!

When administered by a skilled specialist like Dr. Vitulli, advanced tumescent liposuction is a safe and proven way to effectively remove stubborn fat. Unlike other fat reduction techniques, liposuction removes the fatty cells from the treatment area in a precise manner; it doesn’t merely shrink the fat cells. You can enjoy the results from treatment for years to come – as long as you retain a healthy lifestyle. Researchers have found patients who gained a significant amount of weight post-lipo have developed new fat cells, though the treated area still appears more attractive than if you had never undergone the procedure (due to the cosmetic contouring-related benefits).

So, liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy diet and physical activity. It is not appropriate for patients who are obese. If you are not close to your ideal weight or are not committed to maintaining a stable weight, Dr. Vitulli can discuss other options for treatment with you.

He has found that the excellent results from liposuction have motivated men to kickstart a healthy lifestyle, which is particularly beneficial for gynecomastia. Excess breast tissue is associated with obesity and alcohol consumption – risk factors that can be controlled with lifestyle changes.

Removing financial barriers to treatment

Dr. Vitulli accepts many major insurance providers; however, most plans don’t cover liposuction-related expenses because it is characterized as a “cosmetic procedure.” The notable exception to this general rule is gynecomastia treatment. Some policies cover corrective treatment. A Center for Dermatology can work with you to provide the documentation that may be requested by your insurer. We can also discuss other options to pay for expenses not covered by your insurance plan, including medical financing through CareCredit.

The costs of liposuction can vary considerably from patient to patient, based off of factors such as the:
  • Size of the area to be treated
  • Amount of fat to be removed
  • Number of fatty areas to be reduced
  • Type of anesthesia administered
  • Sedative options for added comfort
Dr. Vitulli is upfront about costs related to treatment. He’ll discuss these and other considerations during your personalized consultation at the Jupiter, FL office. To schedule, call 561-427-2000.
