All About Liposuction For Men
Many men choose liposuction to treat localized pockets of fat in the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, and even the face and neck. This procedure can be an excellent choice for individuals who work hard to eat right and stay in shape but are still disappointed with fat deposits that just won’t go away with diet and exercise alone.
Male liposuction removes unwanted fat and also improves overall body shape. At your consultation, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will prescribe the ideal treatment to eliminate your problem areas.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Do I Need To Know?
After doing the research, many people find that liposuction is a good choice for them. Some of the best results are seen on patients of normal weight with good, firm skin elasticity. After determining you are a candidate for surgery, your doctor will go over treatment options, including Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction (UAL), Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) or Tumescent Liposuction.
Many of our patients from Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Irvine and beyond who are considering liposuction also choose to have other plastic surgery procedures, including tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and other procedures. If you are looking for more comprehensive improvement in your body shape, be sure to talk with your surgeon during your consultation.
It’s important to keep in mind that liposuction does not replace healthy eating habits and regular exercise. Instead, choose liposuction for the body contouring benefits that may be hard to achieve otherwise. Liposuction removes fat cells permanently, so if you gain weight after the procedure, it usually will not concentrate in the area that was treated. However, liposuction will not prevent you from regaining weight. To keep your new shape and new weight, you must follow a proper diet and exercise plan even after the procedure.
Which Liposuction Techniques Are Available?
Fluid-Injected (Tumescent) Liposuction
Prior to the development of newer liposuction methods, the extraction of fat was performed without the “wet” or fluid injected technique. This meant that surgery was performed without placing fluid in the body. This limited the amount of fat that could safely be removed due to bleeding. This technique also caused more bruising, swelling and pain.
The Fluid Injected Tumescent liposuction technique is much more common today. This technique uses a medicated solution that is injected into fatty areas before the fat is removed. This allows removal of larger amounts of fat more safely and easily, resulting in less blood loss, bruising and pain.
Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)
The Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction technique uses a surgical wand with a tip that produces ultrasonic energy. The ultrasonic tip creates sound waves that cause fatty tissue to break up and liquefy, making it easier to extract. For patients with specific areas of concern such as the buttocks or abdomen, the doctor may recommend Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction. Flanks (also called love-handles) located just above the crest of the hip-bone also tend to accumulate fat and may also benefit from liposuction. For women, excess fat found just below the bra strap is also a common target for Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction.
The Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction technique also causes less trauma to the patient’s surrounding tissue, as it only requires low-pressure suctioning, making the procedure a bit gentler. This technique has improved the ease and effectiveness of liposuction in fibrous areas of the body that were once more difficult to treat, such as the upper back and the enlarged male breast.
Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL)
PAL uses a motorized liposuction wand that oscillates, vibrating back and forth to break up fat deposits with mechanical energy. The PAL cannula is smaller, resulting in smaller scars and the surgery requires less time than other liposuction techniques. This technique is also used in conjunction with the tumescent liposuction method and helps to facilitate removal of fat in more fibrous, difficult areas including the upper abdomen, back, waist and love handles.
How Will I Look & Feel Afterwards?
- You should be able to return to work within a few days and to your full range of normal activities within about two weeks.
- Residual fluid drainage will occur from the incision sites during the first 24 hours.
- Stitches are usually removed within the first week.
- Some degree of bruising, swelling, and soreness should last for at least a few weeks.
- Some improvement to body shape will be seen shortly after the procedure, with additional improvement after about four to six weeks, after most of the swelling has gone down. Subtle improvements will continue for about three months.
