The good news is that you were born with all the fat cells you are ever going to have. Unfortunately, the amount, where they are located and how they react to your lifestyle can vary widely from man to man. Thanks to genetics and eventually age, most men have stubborn pockets of fat- typically around the midsection and chest- that are resistant to diet and exercise. Fortunately, male liposuction will reliably and permanently get rid of the unwanted fat.
What is different about male liposuction?
Traditional liposuction methods target removal of the deep layers of fat while maintaining the soft curves and hourglass figure preferred by female patients. In contrast, male liposuction is more complex and relies on several steps to target all layers of fat in order to create and maintain the leaner and more defined contours of the male physique. To ensure a masculine contour, male liposuction should be performed by a plastic surgeon specializing in male procedures.
As a male plastic surgery specialist we understand:
- How to highlight the V-shaped trunk and more chiseled features of the male physique.
- How important it is to treat all layers of fat and follow natural muscle contouring.
- The best outcome is obtained when results are dramatic, but look natural.
- How to improve skin quality and muscle tone after the procedure to accentuate the result.
What areas can be treated with male liposuction?
Common areas of concern for men include the neck, chest, abdomen and love handles. However, male liposuction can be performed anywhere excess fat has accumulated.
How is male liposuction done?
During an in-depth consultation your target areas are evaluated and your goals are discussed. During surgery each area is treated with a three-step process: 1) VASER liposuction to break down the fat cells, 2) male liposuction to remove the fat, and 3) hi-definition liposuction to shape the natural muscle contour of the male body. While this process takes a bit longer than traditional liposuction alone, it allows for removal of more fat, gives a smooth contour, and creates definition to provide a distinctly masculine look. In addition, the specific techniques and equipment used are designed to reduce bruising and swelling, plus promote skin tightening for a final result far superior to traditional methods of liposuction.
Will I have loose skin after liposuction?
During the consultation the quality of your skin is evaluated and your expected degree of skin tightening after male liposuction is discussed. However, this is an estimate since the final level of skin tightening is determined by your body’s natural ability to heal. Since VASER liposuction is part of our male liposuction and will be used during your procedure, you will get the added benefit of deep tissue collagen stimulation leading to increased skin contraction and final skin tone. If, after consultation, it is highly likely that you may experience significant skin laxity after male liposuction, we will discuss alternate or additional procedures to fully educate you on what options are available.
What is the recovery from male liposuction?
Male liposuction procedures cover multiple areas and require mild general anesthesia to allow efficiency and patient comfort. Most procedures take between 2.5-3 hours and are done on an outpatient basis meaning you will return home the same day. Immediately after the procedure you will be mobile, but moving slower and more limited than normal. Most patients are independently mobile and back to basic daily activities in a 24-48 hours and can return to non-strenuous daily activity with little discomfort in 1 week. To minimize swelling and allow optimal results, strenuous activities must be limited for 6 weeks. Once the initial swelling subsides, you can expect immediately visible results, with full benefits seen in 3 to 6 months.
Can other procedures be done at the same time as male liposuction?
Male liposuction can be performed alone, but is often combined with other male chest and body procedures including gynecomastia excision, male pectoral implants, male buttock augmentation with fat, and male tummy tuck.
