Just as women have the hormonally-induced saddlebag thighs, some men have the hormonally-induced spare tire around their middle section. This area is made up of dense, fibrous tissue which in the past was more difficult to remove. Dr DeRosa uses a revolutionary liposuction technique specially designed to remove such unwanted fat and results in an improved desired contour. Significant body fat reduction can result in a longer life, reduced lower back strain and allow a more intense exercise program to diminish muscular skeletal pain. These procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, usually under general anesthesia. The patient is able to be back at work in three to five days and resume sports activities in 3 weeks.
