Biological men’s and women’s body contours are different, as are the regions where they habitually accumulate fat, giving their bodies a more masculine or feminine silhouette.
Hormonation achieves changes in the transsexual man’s body that bring him closer to the aesthetic stereotype of a male, but it is not always completely achieved. The cause is that fat accumulates differently in men and women. HD 3D liposculpture allows the body contour to be molded, bringing it even closer to the silhouette of the patient’s gender.
This intervention can be performed before or after Genital Reassignment Surgery and patients achieve very satisfactory results.
3D Liposuction in transsexual men is a technique enabling fat deposits localised in specific areas of the body to be eliminated: chin, neck, cheeks, arms, chest contours, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, calves and ankles, to imbue the body contour with a more masculine appearance.
This type of operation is successful for remodelling the figure and not for losing weight, since it is recommended for men within a normal weight range according to their constitution.
If the liposuction is highly localised and the area is small, local anaesthesia is applied along with sedatives, though an epidural block may also be used. However, if the operation is undertaken in an extensive area, the surgeon will probably opt for general anaesthesia.
Liposuction, which tends to last from one to three hours, depending on the area and the amount of fluid to draw out, must be combined with another additional operation in people with sagging and not very elastic skin. The scars are small and localised strategically so they are barely visible.
With the aim of helping to mould the new figure, an elastic compression garment will be worn for the next three or four weeks.
Though the patient may return to their job after three to seven days, it is highly recommended they do not engage in physical exertion for the first two weeks.
The results, which will gradually become visible, begin to be seen at one to two months, though not completely until six months afterwards.
