Liposuction for Men: What To Know

Young,Man,With,Marks,On,Belly,For,Cosmetic,Surgery,Operation Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world, but many people still assume it is only for women. This could not be further from the truth. Male liposuction is equally effective, and it could make the difference between struggling with stubborn fat and achieving the build you’ve been working hard for.

Before we delve into the finer points of the procedure, let’s address some common misconceptions.

  • Liposuction is not a weight-loss treatment, so it cannot help you lose 10 or more pounds to reach your dream figure.
  • You cannot tighten loose skin with liposuction. But we can pair liposuction with a skin-tightening treatment to enhance your results!
  • Men and women are both able to receive liposuction — in fact, it is one of the most popular types of men’s plastic surgery procedures performed in the United States.

What Areas Can Men Treat With Liposuction?

There are many options available to help a man sculpt his body with liposuction. Notably, areas that are typically unresponsive to diet or exercise can be treated with the procedure. These include the thighs, buttocks, abdominal region, waist, upper arms, back, and less thought-of areas such as the inner knee, calves, ankles, and chest area.

For men who want to reduce unwanted fat around their face, we can perform liposuction on the cheeks, chin, and neck.

How It Works

Liposuction is performed under general or intravenous sedation anesthesia. We will discuss your options and recommend the right choice for you, depending on your treatment areas and the extent of your procedure.

Small incisions are made to allow the insertion of a hollow tube called a cannula. This device is then used to dislodge fat deposits, which are removed permanently through a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.

A controlled motion ensures that the unwanted fat cells are thoroughly removed without damaging surrounding tissues.

There are many types of liposuction available, and we will discuss the best method for attaining your desired results during your consultation.
