Liposuction for Men

Liposuction has always been one of the most popular procedures for men. From fighting the appearance of male breasts to reducing love handles and sculpting the abs, liposuction has helped numerous men remove unwanted fat accumulations that are not responsive to diet or exercise. Though its goal is to address unwanted fat, it is important to remember that liposuction is a contouring procedure, not a substitute for weight loss. It can be a beneficial addition to a combined weight loss and exercise program: many men find the confidence boost they get through body contouring with liposuction gives them extra motivation to stay at a healthy weight.

Liposuction cannot change your body’s underlying structure, but it can significantly improve contours when subcutaneous fat is the problem. The best liposuction candidates are those who are at or close to their ideal body weight and size, yet still have persistent areas of unwanted fat accumulation.

The most common areas men have liposuction include the abdomen, chest, and hips, although other areas can be treated, such as the neck. If you feel that more than one issue needs to be corrected, liposuction may be combined with other procedures to maximize your overall benefits in one operation, such as male tummy tuck surgery.

What to Expect from Male Liposuction

Liposuction is a safe procedure when appropriate guidelines are followed. We have an anesthesiologist present during liposuction to ensure that you are comfortable and safe. It is usually performed on an out-patient basis, so we limit the amount of fat removed during any one procedure.

During liposuction, a hollow metal tube called a cannula is connected to a suction machine. We insert the cannula through a small incision into the area of the body adjacent to the unwanted fat. The fat cells are then aspirated—in other words, removed. Infiltration of physiological saline solutions allows easier removal of fatty tissue, reduces blood loss, and increases post-operative comfort. Because the incisions and the cannula are small, the resulting scars are usually inconspicuous.

Advanced Technology

You can rest assured we keep up to date on the best in suction-assisted lipectomy techniques. Tumescent, Micro-aire, ultrasound, and laser-assisted techniques are all options your CPS board certified plastic surgeon may discuss with you in consultation.

Recovery Following Male Liposuction

After liposuction, you will be placed in an elastic support garment while you are still asleep. This garment will cover and compress the treated areas to limit fluid accumulation and provide gentle, balanced pressure to assure a smooth final contour. You will wear this garment continuously for two to four weeks, except when bathing.

Some patients experience bruising and swelling after liposuction. Others may experience some skin rippling. These conditions will improve considerably in the first few weeks, but the final result* can take several months to be fully visible. Most men are able to resume normal activities, including walking and driving, in five to seven days. You should postpone strenuous exercise for three weeks.
