Liposuction for Men Helps Achieve a Great Physique
Men are having plastic surgery in record numbers. According to ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons), in 2010 male cosmetic surgery increased 2% and men now account for 13% of all cosmetic surgical procedures.
There has always been more of a stigma about men undergoing cosmetic surgery. It was always thought to be just for actors or celebrities. Because of that many men opted for less invasive procedures in order to conceal their actions. Increasingly though, men have been coming clean about having surgery rather than lying or hiding their surgery.

Less BOTOX® New Jersey, Same Results
Good news for existing and potential BOTOX® New Jersey users. According to a recent study conducted at the Oregon Health & Science University’s Casey Eye Institute, which included 50 women ages 30 to 50 who received regular injections for two years, the results revealed that a patient could reduce the appearance of wrinkles with fewer treatments, after 20 months. In doing so, the injections would provide longer lasting results thereby reducing the need for more frequent treatments. Although patients would still have to commit to three to four treatments per year for two years, thereafter the patient would be able to significantly decrease the frequency of treatments to as little as twice a year, while still being able to achieve a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles. The results of which can be significantly impactful with respect to the financial commitment of BOTOX® treatments, regardless of whether you are an existing patient or you are considering treatments for the first time.

New Jersey Liposuction Patient Reverses the Effects of Menopause at The Parker Center
At 55, Susan had had enough of the tummy fat and “flat tire” around her mid-section. She decided it was time to reclaim her body from the fluctuating hormones and side effects of menopause. So she called New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Paul M. Parker and set up a consultation for liposuction and breast implants.
“I’ve always thought about breast implants, but for the longest time, I was OK with what I had,” she says. “But once my athletic body started changing so drastically after menopause, I knew it was time to act. My breasts were looking smaller, my midsection was getting thicker. My athletic body was turning into a pear shape.”
Susan was aware of Dr. Parker’s reputation by word of mouth. But going in to make her appointment for a consultation sealed the deal. “The women in the office were so great,” she says. “Just talking with them made me feel at ease. They strongly believe in Dr. Parker and what he can do for patients; that is a great testament to him as a surgeon.”
She felt completely comfortable talking with Dr. Parker about what she didn’t like. While she wanted breast implants, her main concern was the fat around her middle. Three kids and one menopause later, and she really felt self-conscious about her body, especially when the family would go to their beach house in New Jersey. Liposuction gave her back her shape and her confidence.
“If I wanted to, I could walk down the beach in a bikini now and know that I look good instead of feeling like a dumpy old lady,” she says. “I look as young as I feel now!”
After liposuction of the tummy and hips along with 275 cc breast implants, this 55 year-old mother of three has a new lease on life. She has a flat tummy and a shapely waist, and her breasts are in proportion to her athletic shape that she had prior to menopause.
“I have to keep pinching myself to make sure that this is me,” she says. “I am so happy I did this. Every time I look in the mirror, it’s like a big present! I would definitely recommend Dr. Parker to anyone thinking about cosmetic surgery.”
