Stubborn body fat can seem near impossible to target with diet and exercise. Men’s liposuction is a procedure intended to reduce excess fat in areas of the body, including the abdomen, upper arms, thighs, and double chin. This treatment can help you achieve a more toned and masculine physique.

Body contouring plastic surgery for men is different and our plastic surgeons know how to get the results you are looking for.  There are anatomic differences that must be accounted for.  For men, the problem areas tend to be the abdomen and love handles as opposed to women, who tend to focus on the hips and thighs.  The surgical plan for men will often focus on enhancing their muscular appearing physiques and narrowing the waistline. Abdominal liposuction often enhanced with “Vaser” for skin tightening can have a profound effect. For more troublesome areas and in particular excess skin, a tummy tuck can also be custom designed for the male physique.  What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure intended to reduce body fat in hard-to-reach areas. Liposuction helps to tone, contour, and slim your desired areas to improve your body proportions and masculine appearance. A liposuction procedure is ideal for areas of the body, including the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, upper arms, cheeks, chin, and neck. Although liposuction can remove excess body fat, it is not a weight loss, loose skin, or cellulite treatment.

Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?

Men with stubborn body fat that will not respond to diet or exercise are ideal candidates for liposuction. Liposuction can balance out the body’s overall look by removing excess fat from specific areas. Candidates for liposuction should be near their ideal body weight and have reliable skin elasticity. Patients must be in good overall health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations of what a liposuction procedure can accomplish. The best way to determine your candidacy for men’s liposuction is through a private consultation with one of our expert surgeons at Tucson Plastic Surgery in Arizona.

Liposuction Procedure

Your liposuction procedure will begin with the administration of general anesthesia to free you of any possible discomfort during surgery. Once the medications are effective, your doctor will cleanse the treatment area and make a small incision. A thin cannula will be inserted through the incisions, and your doctor will thoroughly break apart fat deposits before suctioning them out of the body.

At Tucson Plastic Surgery, we offer various liposuction techniques based on your unique needs, including tumescent liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction, and suction-assisted liposuction.

Tumescent Liposuction

This liposuction procedure involves minimal discomfort as the treatment area is injected with an anesthetic beforehand.

Vaser / Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction

This liposuction technique utilizes ultrasound energy to break the fatty tissue apart, helping remove larger body fat areas.  In addition, the energy delivered to the skin helps the skin to shrink and tighten as the swelling resolves.

Laser Assisted Liposuction

This liposuction procedure encompasses laser energy to help loosen the fat cells before removal.

Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)

This treatment uses an energy source to power the movements of the suction cannula.  The power drives extra fat removal while minimzing the time of the surgery. 

Recovery Process

Liposuction Recovery

*4-6 Weeks

Your men’s liposuction procedure will require a few days of recovery time. During your recovery, you must wear a compression garment to reduce swelling and bleeding. Drains may be placed to help release fluid from the treatment area. You should follow your surgeon’s aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. After your procedure, you must maintain a healthy lifestyle to maintain your liposuction results effectively.
