Cosmetic procedures aren’t just for women. With increasing demands on men to look great in both social and professional circumstances – particularly in the highly competitive northeast – more men have turned to discreet surgical and non-surgical procedures to combat the signs of aging and look their best.
At Aristocrat Plastic Surgery, we are dedicated to a natural look so that men never have to worry that someone will suspect they have been to our office. Below are the most common procedures that bring men to us:
What Is The Liposuction Procedure
Prior to your appointment date for surgery, Dr. Tehrani may request that you visit your medical doctor for a checkup and for any necessary lab work and x-rays. Precise preoperative instructions will be provided, and all necessary prescriptions will be given to you. All aspirin, aspirin-containing products, and anti-inflammatory products must be stopped at least ten days before and for ten days after your surgery. You will also be given a list of vitamins and homeopathic preparations to take prior to and after your surgery to promote healing and limit bruising.
Dr. Tehrani makes small incisions in inconspicuous locations to insert a hollow tube called a cannula into the skin. Using the popular tumescent liposuction technique, fluid is added to reduce bleeding and pain. The cannula is attached to a clear plastic tube and connected to a vacuum device. Excess fat is then removed in layers until a pleasing improvement is made.
Several areas may be suctioned during one procedure. Liposuction is often combined with procedures like tummy tucks and facelifts.

Select Liposuction Galleries
After surgery, you are fitted with an elastic garment after surgery that you must wear for two to three weeks. You can go home a couple of hours after the procedure in the care of a friend or family member. We can arrange for a private nurse at your request.
Most patients describe the pain following liposuction as mild. Pain medication will be prescribed, and you can expect some post-surgical bruising and swelling. The bruising will resolve within a week or so, but the swelling may take two weeks to go down completely. Most people take no more than a week off from work, and exercise should be avoided for at least two weeks.
We will encourage you to walk short distances for the first several days after your procedure, and we will, of course, monitor your healing progress.
