Liposuction is the gold standard for removing unwanted, excess fat and improving shape. Unlike non-surgical fat reduction, which can only reduce the total number of fat cells in an area, with liposuction a surgeon can remove precisely the amount of fat desired, sculpting a naturally smooth shape.
Dr. Ditesheim is the only plastic surgeon in NC performing AquaShape Liposuction
Traditional liposuction techniques can require general anesthesia, a week away from work and 3 weeks before you’re back at the gym. A lot of men just don’t have time for that—plus, it’s hard to keep your surgery “under the radar” with a week or more of downtime.
AquaShape is a water assisted liposuction technique that yields superb results with much less trauma to your tissues. It uses a water get to separate the fat and sculpt the area, rather than force. This helps Dr. Ditesheim sculpt the area with great precision and shortens your recovery process dramatically. Most patients are back at work in a day or two—have your procedure on Friday, go back in on Monday with a better body.

Who has liposuction?
The short answer? Just about every type of man you know. And the goals are personal. Some men want to look better in clothing, others want to look better out of clothing. Liposuction is also one of the most common procedures for male breast reduction. Basically, if you’re bothered by excess fat, liposuction is an option to consider. A few ways it can work to benefit you:
- Get a stronger, better defined jawline by removing fat under the chin
- Get rid of stubborn belly fat, helping you look fit and healthy
- Sculpt better proportions, improving the fit & comfort of your clothing
- Restore a flatter, more masculine chest if you have enlarged male breasts
- Enhance self-image, which can help you approach life with greater confidence
AquaShape water assisted liposuction leaves tiny scars that are barely detectable—typically only the patient himself notices them—and allows patients to return to work faster, often the next day.

About the procedure
An AquaShape procedure usually lasts between 30 minutes and three hours, depending on the number of areas to be treated. Dr. Ditesheim will perform your surgery at our fully accredited, private surgery center. Most patients only require local anesthesia to minimize discomfort during the procedure, and many drive themselves to and from our office.
AquaShape has one of the quickest recoveries you’ll find in a cosmetic procedure
Most of our patients return to work after just 1 to 4 days. Although, we suggest that vigorous activity should be avoided for a few weeks. Bruising and swelling are minimal. Most men only find they need pain medication for the first day or two, if at all. Our experienced staff will provide you with postoperative guidelines that provide instructions for the most comfortable and successful healing.
