BODY MASCULINIZATION SURGERY
The male body contour has different proportions to the female body contour because fat accumulates in different areas in different ways. High definition HD liposculpture allows you to reshape your silhouette giving you a more harmonious and natural proportions.
WHAT IS FTM LIPOSUCTION?
Liposuction or liposculpture is the name given to the technique that enables the removal of fat accumulated in specific areas of the body. High Definition HD liposculpture is the most advanced technique which, as well as eliminating fat accumulation, allows the entire body contour to be comprehensively remodelled and redefined. This achieves a stylized, muscled and masculine silhouette.
High Definition HD liposculpture allows the removal of accumulated fat deposits in specific areas such as the double chin, arms, chest, abdomen, hips, calves, ankles and more. However, the most common areas in trans men are usually the hips and the belly.
FTM liposuction results
Knowing the before and after of body surgery for trans men performed by the IM GENDER team can help to have a clearer idea of the results you can achieve. In this way you will be able to see cases similar to yours and get an idea of the final result.
FTM LIPOSUCTION SURGERY
You will be admitted on the same day as the surgery and over the ensuing hours undergo all the necessary monitoring. Liposculpture surgery usually lasts between one and four hours, depending on the extent of the area to be treated. This will also be a decisive factor in choosing the anesthesia type. It can be local combined with sedatives if the surgery is very minor, or an epidural block or general anesthesia if the area where liposculpture will be performed is extensive.
You should bear in mind that in liposculpture, people who have firm, elastic skin will enjoy a better final silhouette, where as if the skin is very flaccid it is advisable to carry out an additional surgical procedure to eliminate excess skin so that it adapts better to the new contour. Fat accumulates in different places in men and women. For this reason, the HD liposculpture technique can also be used in trans people, combining the HD liposculpture technique with lipofilling or “fat grafting”. This technique consists in redistributing the fat extracted from the areas with excess, to treat it and inject it in other areas to improve the silhouette. So, for example, in trans women it can help to make hips or buttocks more prominent. And in trans men it can be used to redefine a more muscular appearance.
FTM LIPOSUCTION RECOVERY
After liposculpture you will need to wear an elastic compression garment for 3-4 weeks to help shape your new figure. As soon as possible, your surgeon will advise you to start walking and taking short walks, but always avoiding exertion, at least for the first two weeks.
THE RESULT OF FTM LIPOSUCTION
Three-dimensional liposculpture is an effective, safe technique that will give you a new figure. The results are not seen immediately because of the swelling, but it is a gradual process that lasts between one and two months. However, depending on the extent of the intervention it can last up to six months. The results of HD liposculpture are permanent if you take care of your diet and exercise. The resulting scars are tiny (just a few millimeters) and become virtually invisible over time. In the case of weight gain, it usually occurs in a more uniform and harmonious way, respecting your new body shape, without fat accumulating where it was removed.
En el caso de un aumento de peso, éste suele producirse de una manera más uniforme y armónica, respetando las nuevas formas de su cuerpo y sin formarse acumulaciones de grasa allí de donde se extrajeron.
TIPS AFTER FTM LIPOSUCTION
Pressure therapy clothing
You must wear a pressotherapy girdle the following 3-4 weeks after the surgery. Depending on the treated area, the garment will vary. You must wear it the 24 hours of the day and only take it off to shower.
You’ll be able to take showers normally, but we recommend doing it in company the first days after the surgery in case you feel uncomfortable after removing your girdle. Water shouldn’t be too hot and remember to wisely dry off the scars with cold air before putting back your girdle.
It’s very important that you don’t miss any of your visits after the surgery in order to let the IM GENDER Medical Team evaluate your evolution.
