Liposuction For Men – A Closer Look
Liposuction For Men – A Closer Look
Liposuction used to be associated with women, but a large percentage of men are now obtaining liposuction for men. Naturally, this treatment is never obtained as a weight loss solution, as liposuction is only meant to remove persistent fats that are difficult to remove through diet and exercise alone. For more information about liposuction for men, please check out the overview below.
What Are The Different Types Of Liposuction For Men?
Tumescent liposuction is a procedure that enables cosmetic surgeons to remove excess fatty tissue from locations such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, back, ankles, arms, chin, lower cheeks and neck. The classic reason for liposuction is to remove stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to weight loss. Men and women may also choose liposuction to reduce breast size, a procedure suited to breast reduction. Liposuction for men can be performed consecutively on many different areas of the body in the one surgery.
There are several types of liposuction procedures available – all of which use an instrument called a cannula to remove unwanted fat. Dr Lanzer also uses Vaser Liposuction with liposculpture. This is a third-generation ultrasound that helps soften the fat and tighten the skin.
Tumescent liposuction has undoubtedly been the most revolutionary and innovative procedure among liposuction procedures in the last ten years. Its primary effect is to allow the surgeon to remodel any part of the body, such as chubby flanks, bulging stomachs, voluminous lower backs and thighs.
Liposculpture – helps to reshape the flowing silhouette in a female and relies on an artistic flair and experience of the surgeon.
Liposuction– This treatment can be executed in many problem areas. Maximum fat removal is often required on areas such as the hips waist and stomach.
Mega liposuction– A treatment aimed at kick-starting weight loss, accompanied by the removal of many fat cells. Fat removal of up to 10 litres can be removed in 2 procedures. However, patients must be willing to maintain a good diet and exercise post-procedure.
Female breast reduction– Dr Lanzer is one of the leading surgeons for breast reduction using a liposuction technique, which is aimed at reducing the size of heavy female breasts as well as their overall weight.
Hi Def liposuction– Dr Lanzer was the first Australian surgeon to train in this method. This is used to create athletic grooves in the stomach area to highlight the muscles. Therefore, the targeted removal of fat deposits creates a more athletic appearance.
Male breast reduction – Liposuction (fat removal) and occasionally combined with incision surgery is very effective in flattening the feminine looking chest in men’ and subsequently creating a more masculine male breast.
Face rejuvenation – liposuction of the neck and jowls is carried out to produce long-lasting face rejuvenation in the appearance of the face. In addition to liposuction surgery, face rejuvenation can include other treatments.
Fat Transfer – through the method of liposuction, this procedure will remove fat and reintroduce it inside the body to obtain breast enlargement, full face rejuvenation and fat rejuvenation of the hands.
Am I Right For Liposuction?
It is important that any individual considering liposuction as a surgical procedure, is realistic about their results. Dramatic results can certainly be achieved; however, they may not be as immediate or obvious as many people desire.
As with any surgery, the success of liposuction depends on certain factors such as age, skin type, weight and overall, general health. Liposuction is not recommended for those individuals with a weakened immune system or heart-related problems. Good candidates for liposuction include people who are of a normal weight or up to 20 kilos overweight.
An ideal patient may have healthy, elastic skin and have specific areas they wish to treat – such as the tummy, love handles, thighs and buttocks that will not respond to changes in diet and exercise. Liposuction and liposculpture can be performed when the situation is not as ideal – as in older patients, even in there 70’s or patients who are overweight. In this situation the goal and end result is different. At the end of the day, the only way to really know if you are a candidate is to have Dr Lanzer do a free no obligation assessment. Dr Lanzer has 20 years of experience and has performed liposuction in over 20,000 patients.
Who Can Benefit From Liposuction For Men?
There is a hereditary predisposition to store fat in specific areas that tend to be stubborn and unresponsive to dieting and exercise. Women tend to accumulate fat around their hips, thighs, lower abdomen and neck. Men store excess fat around the flanks and abdomen.
The procedure can be done on patients who have localised areas of fat, such as on the areas mentioned, or can be performed in multiple areas to aid in generalised weight and fat reduction. The latter is called full body liposuction. The most common areas for liposculpture are the outer thighs (‘saddle bags’), hips, buttocks, abdomen in females and lower abdomen, flanks and breasts in males.
Using very fine cannula, liposuction can also remove fat from the neck and so-called jowls. The ideal patient is not obese and has good skin elasticity. Interestingly, the skin retracts after liposuction, so that larger and elderly patients can expect very good results also. Dr Lanzer has performed liposuction on men and women from the age of 18 to 80. Very occasionally teenagers need liposuction for heavy breasts or other medical needs. Liposuction procedures such as the tummy tuck can also be executed for patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight and have a lot of excess skin.
Why Do Liposuction For Men?
- When fat has accumulated in “congenital” or resistant areas and fails to respond to diet, slimming exercises and weight loss measures;
- When the fat is concentrated on the stomach, flanks, hips, buttocks, thighs, ankles, chin, cheeks and neck and is resistant to exercise and weight loss measures;
- When a kick-start to a weight loss program is needed;
- For love handles not responding to diet;
- When the neck hangs or has lost its sharp angle;
- When you want an athletic look to your stomach;
- When you are overweight and need some help towards a healthier lifestyle;
- If large breasts are a concern in a male, e.g. if the patient suffers from feminine looking breasts. Tumescent liposuction or another technique can be used in these cases.

What Are The Advantages Of The Tumescent Liposuction Method?
- Numbs the area so that the procedure does not necessarily require a general anaesthetic and post- surgery discomfort is reduced with the help of a compression garment.
- Seals the blood vessels so that there is little or no bleeding, resulting in less bruising. Therefore, cosmetic surgeons can avoid the use of intravenous ‘drips’ or blood transfusions.
- Softens the fat, so it becomes more even and easier to remove, allowing much greater amounts of fat to be removed in a safe manner.
- The fluid used is anti-bacterial, so that infection is less likely.
- Newer liposuction techniques have resulted in many more patients requesting this technique.
The Liposculpture Technique
Liposculpture involves the sculpting of the body at the same time as suctioning fat out. It is particularly used when treating outer thighs and buttocks to produce the natural flow of the body silhouette. It takes years of experience to be able to understand exactly the amount of fat that should be removed, and the surgical expertise involved in this procedure.
Firstly, Dr Daniel Lanzer will mark out the areas on your body to be suctioned. This allows for an accurate targeting of fat. Dr Lanzer will then photograph these marks for later reference. A patient can choose to be awake and just receive a pethidine injection or be asleep with the light general anaesthetic.
Tumescent fluid consists of a combination of saline solution, local anaesthetic and adrenalin. The fluid is infiltrated into the areas being treated via small incisions around the marked area. The term “tumescent” actually refers to the “turgid” state of the tissues into which the solution has been infiltrated. This technique makes for much easier fat drainage, less or no blood loss, better anaesthesia during the procedure and afterwards, and fewer post-operative bruises. The excess fatty tissue is then removed. This is achieved by means of a cannula connected to a suction device (vacuum or large syringe), the cannula is introduced into the fat situated under the skin through the same small incisions (2-4 mm) made close to the target treatment area, it’s then pushed through the fat until it reaches the area in question. The cannula is then moved about so that the fat is broken up and suctioned.
Why Is A Dermatologist Important For Liposuction?
Dermatology is an accredited speciality around the world; it involves many years of extra intense training after medicine. A large part of dermatology involves studying skin cancer, skin cosmetic and skin therapies. Dermatologists developed many of the great breakthroughs in cosmetic surgery. For example, dermatologist Dr Klein invented Tumescent Liposuction.
Other Dermatologists have also invented lasers for wrinkles, lasers for the removal of pigmentation /redness / tattoos, muscle relaxants, and the first anti-ageing injection of collagen. So, the role of dermatologists in cosmetic surgery cannot be underestimated.
Dr Lanzer has trained overseas with his dermatology colleagues and has interacted with them for years. His detained training helps him assess the skin and its healing ability. Besides the extra years of dermatology training, Dr Lanzer has now some 20 years of experience specifically in this area. In Australia, any doctor without any registered training can start-up cosmetic surgery procedures such as liposuction. Subsequently, it is important to choose an adequately qualified surgeon with lots of experience. Dr Lanzer has been chosen by his dermatology colleagues to be the liposuction representative of the subcommittee of the surgical group of dermatologists.
Can Liposuction Have Complications For Men?
Like any surgery, liposuction carries some risks. Infection is the most serious risk but is extremely rare due to the antiseptic tumescent fluid, pre-operative antibiotics and sterile techniques. Loose skin, temporary numbness and irregularities may occur.
The procedure is done by Dr Lanzer in a highly sterile environment in his Accredited Day Surgery Hospital. Pre-operative antibiotics are given to each patient.
Dr Lanzer will start you on antibiotics before surgery as prevention. Dr Lanzer has not seen deep vein clots in his patients, but it is a risk with all surgery and there have not been any serious complications in his personal experience.
Swelling is common after liposuction. There will be swelling and bruising and some soreness and pain. Risks also include denting and loose skin. Liposuction does not treat stretch marks and may not necessarily help cellulite.
Weight gain after liposuction may mean the fat returns or comes back other places. It is possible that other surgery may be required after liposuction. It is important read the consent forms that are given.
Make sure your liposuction is only performed in a registered sterile theatre. Dr Lanzer’s Day Surgery Theatre is in Malvern and is fully accredited with the world standard ISO for safety and quality in healthcare. An enormous amount of effort and costs are involved to obtain this recognition.
How Can I Maintain The New Body Shape Obtained From Liposuction?
Although liposuction removes a number of existing fat cells, it does not guarantee that you will not regain some fat to the area being treated. It’s crucial that you have a healthy lifestyle plan to maintain your results – include a moderate diet and be sure to exercise for at least 30 minutes three to five times each week. Not only will this help you maintain your figure after the liposuction surgery, it will also improve your overall health and help prevent the onset of certain diseases. Dr Lanzer offers a free consultation with an expert nutritionist and dietician, Mark Surdut.
