Targeted Fat Loss Surgery With A More Comfortable Recovery

Adjusting for the number and size of the areas to be treated, men’s liposuction requires only a couple of hours under general anesthesia. This maximizes comfort and safety while allowing you to achieve the most impactful results. You get to go home the same day, wearing custom-fitted compression garments or supportive wraps.

Our surgeons focus on your safety and goals. They treat delicate tissue responsibly and take a comprehensive approach to your procedure. In addition to our surgical expertise, we have a world-class functional medicine team ready to prepare you for your procedure and bolster your results with customized weight management programs that fit your lifestyle.

Frequently Asked Questions

While many fundamental principles of liposuction apply to both men and women, we recognize the distinct anatomical and aesthetic considerations when performing this procedure for men.

Men have greater fat density and store more excess fat in the abdomen and trunk; women tend to store more fat in the hips and thighs. Men often choose liposuction to enhance muscular contours and reduce fat deposits for a more sculpted physique, while women will opt for a more shapely and feminine appearance.

Ideal candidates have areas of excess fat deposition, such as the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), chest or neck that won’t go away with diet and exercise. Additionally, candidates should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about surgical outcomes and be committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle post-surgery to sustain the results.

Wherever you store extra weight. These areas often include:

  • “Spare tire” around the waist
  • “Love handles” on the sides
  • Chest
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Chin

All of these areas are amenable to surgical treatment and our surgeons choose from a variety of surgical liposuction methods to match your fat pattern and consistency.

Compression garments refer to specialized attire designed specifically to offer focused pressure and bolstering to the treated areas after undergoing liposuction surgery. We recommend that most patients wear compression garments for 6 weeks.

During the first 2 – 3 weeks of recovery, we advise patients to wear their specialized compression garments 24/7.

The recovery time after liposuction can vary based on the extent of the procedure and individual factors. In general, patients can expect swelling and bruising that subsides within a week or two.

Most patients return to light activities within a week, but more strenuous activities should be avoided for 4-6 weeks to allow for optimal healing. It’s crucial to follow post-operative care instructions provided by your care coordinator. These often include the use of compression garments, dietary modifications, motion restrictions, sleeping recommendations and more.

While noticeable improvements may be visible shortly after the procedure, final results may take several months to fully manifest as the body adjusts and swelling completely diminishes. Each patient’s recovery experience is unique, and consulting with your surgeon will provide tailored insights into your specific post-liposuction healing timeline.

Several millimeters, or approximately 1/4 inch. They tend to heal as a small blemish, as if a tiny mole had been removed from the area.

The location of the incisions is also important, as our surgeons try to place them in inconspicuous areas.  They are often hidden within natural body contours or existing creases, such as inside the navel, or in areas typically covered by clothing.
