Liposuction for Men

Home » Plastic Surgery » For Men » Liposuction

Are you struggling to achieve your desired body contours despite your best efforts with diet and exercise? Sometimes, despite your best efforts, stubborn fat around the belly, flanks, or thighs can be nearly impossible to budge without medical assistance. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, we offer liposuction for men to target excess fat in areas like the abdomen, flanks, and chest, helping you achieve a lean, sculpted physique.

Remove Stubborn Fat &
Improve Body Contours

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that removes excess fat deposits from specific areas of the body, providing men with a more sculpted and defined appearance. This minimally invasive surgical technique involves using a thin tube called a cannula, which is inserted through small incisions in the target areas. Through controlled movements, the surgeon suctions out the excess fat, reshaping and contouring the treated region.

Liposuction can be particularly beneficial for men who struggle with localized pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Common areas targeted for liposuction include the abdomen, flanks (love handles), chest (often referred to as gynecomastia treatment), and neck. The procedure is known for its precision and ability to offer noticeable improvements in body contours. Whether you want to refine your physique or enhance your overall appearance, liposuction can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Liposuction Treats:

  • Excess abdominal fat
  • Love handles or flanks
  • Unwanted chest fat (gynecomastia)
  • Stubborn neck fat
  • Thigh fat
  • Back rolls
  • Upper arm fat
  • Double chin

Liposuction for Gynecomastia

Liposuction is a highly effective treatment for gynecomastia, a condition characterized by the development of male breasts. Through a small incision, liposuction can remove the unwanted fat deposits in the chest, creating a flatter and more masculine contour. However, liposuction is suitable when the male breast is primarily caused by excess fat in the chest and not actual gynecomastia, which is caused by excess glandular tissue.

If you have excess breast tissue, your surgeon may recommend gynecomastia surgery, which involves the strategic removal of glandular tissue from the region and may be accompanied by liposuction for targeted fat removal. Regardless of the true nature of your male breasts, our board-certified plastic surgeons can curate a personalized surgical plan to help you achieve a flat, masculine chest that aligns with your goals.

Liposuction Surgery in Hampton Roads

At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, your liposuction begins with a thorough consultation to discuss your goals and determine the specific areas for fat removal. On the day of your liposuction, you’ll be comfortably prepared for the surgery in our state-of-the-art facility. The surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on your needs.

Once you’re ready, our surgeon will make small, inconspicuous incisions in the targeted areas. These incisions are strategically placed to minimize scarring. Next, a thin tube, called a cannula, is inserted through these incisions. This cannula is connected to a suction device, which gently removes the excess fat from the treatment areas. The amount of fat removed is closely monitored to ensure symmetry and an aesthetically pleasing result.

Liposuction offers a customizable approach, allowing us to address multiple areas of concern in a single procedure. Once the fat removal process is complete, the incisions are closed with sutures or surgical tape. After the procedure, you’ll be carefully monitored during the recovery process. You may need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks to minimize swelling and support the healing process, which may take a few weeks.

Liposuction Recovery Guidelines:

  • Allow your body time to recover with plenty of rest.
  • Follow instructions and wear the compression garment as directed by your surgeon.
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting during the initial healing period.
  • Drink plenty of water to aid in the healing process and maintain hydration.
  • Take prescribed pain medication and antibiotics as instructed by your surgeon.
  • Keep an eye on incision sites for any signs of infection or complications.
  • Maintain a balanced diet to support healing and prevent weight gain.
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking because they can interfere with the healing process.
  • Keep scheduled appointments with your surgeon for monitoring and guidance.
  • Slowly reintroduce physical activities as recommended by your surgeon.
  • Follow instructions for scar care, including keeping the incision sites clean and protected.
