Is male liposuction different from liposuction for women?
The actual procedure is exactly the same for both men and women. However, men and women do differ in what areas of the body they may want treated with liposuction.

What areas of the body can be treated for men?
Men can have liposuction on their torso to get rid of love handles and spare tires around their waist. They can also have it done to remove areas of fat around the head and neck. Men can also have fat on the pubic mound removed.

Can I get rid of my "beer belly" with male liposuction?
Probably not, or at least not safely. Liposuction can easily remove fat that is just under the skin. Your beer belly may be mostly visceral fat, which is fat that is in the abdominal cavity around such vital organs as your intestines. Visceral fat should not be removed through liposuction since there is the risk of puncturing an organ and increased risk of infection.

I have gynecomastia. Can male liposuction help me?
Yes. Liposuction can help remove the excess fat on your upper chest, as well as breast tissue that may have developed. Some men with gynecomastia may need an additional procedure done at the same time as liposuction to remove all breast tissue. Your cosmetic surgeon will advise you on whether liposuction or liposuction plus other surgery is best for you.
