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.

Am I Right for Liposuction?

Am I Right for Liposuction?

An ideal patient for liposuction 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 our surgeons do a free no obligation assessment.

Liposuction Results

Liposuction Results

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.

    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. Our surgeons have 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.

    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.

    Before the procedure

    Before the procedure

    The procedure is done by our surgeons in a highly sterile environment in our Accredited Day Surgery Hospital. Pre-operative antibiotics are given to each patient. Your surgeon will start you on antibiotics before surgery as prevention.




    Swelling is common during liposuction recovery time. 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

    Weight gain

    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.

    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 surgeries 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.

    What Are the Different Types of Liposuction Surgery For Men?

    Liposculpture – a body contouring procedure that helps to restore the atheletic physique in male patients. The procedure is also used in female patients, during which the female silhouette is restored.

    Liposuction – This treatment can be executed in many problem areas; this includes the upper arms, abdomen, thighs, and other areas where large volumes of stubborn fats can accumulate. 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.

    Hi Def liposuction – 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 – Gynecomastia can be a problem in some men. Liposuction can be used to remove male breasts in cases of gynaecomastia.

    Face rejuvenation – liposuction of the neck and jowls is carried out to produce long-lasting face rejuvenation in the appearance of the face. Face rejuvenation can include other treatments such as double chin removal.

    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.

    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.

    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, our surgeons will mark out the areas on your body to be suctioned. This allows for an accurate targeting of fat. The surgeon 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. 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.
