Liposuction For Men
Removing Stubborn Fat & Creating Masculine Contours
When most men gain weight, they know right where it goes — and we go after those areas. We approach male liposuction with the goal of flattening unwanted bulges and restoring proportion through small incisions and minimal downtime. Liposuction for men is an excellent solution if you’re watching what you eat and exercising routinely, but still have concerns about specific areas of the abdomen, chest or flanks.

This maximizes comfort and safety while enabling the most consequential, consistent results. You go home same-day wearing custom-fitted compression garments or supportive wraps.

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.

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.
