Types of Male Liposuction

The key target areas of male liposuction are the chest, flanks, abdomen, chin, neck, and jowls all areas where the beneficial visual impact of weight loss and exercise dont always show up. By removing subcutaneous fat from any of these areas, lipo for men can provide definition and a more youthful, rested appearance.

Excess fat or breast tissue on the upper chest in men is known as gynecomastia, and it can be very embarrassing in everyday life. Liposuction, alone or in addition to surgery to remove excess breast tissue, can contour the area and create a manlier chest.

The abdomen is another problem area for men, and liposuction can do wonders in this area. However, its important to make the distinction between the subcutaneous fat (under the skin) that liposuction removes and the visceral fat surrounding the abdominal organs that creates the unattractive pot belly or beer gut.

The pubic mound in the lower abdomen is another area where fat is often stored. When excessive, it can hide the lower penis shaft, which then appears shorter. Liposuction can also be used to remove the fat, reversing that problem.

Liposuction is not used on visceral fat due to the inherent risk of nerve damage, blood loss, and puncture organs. A qualified plastic surgeon can advise you on the difference and whether or not male abdominal liposuction will work for you.

As men age or gain weight, excess fat can settle in around the neck and under the chin, creating jowls and a double chin that softens their face and neck area and imparts a less masculine appearance. Combined with other facial procedures to remove excess skin, liposuction in and around the neck and chin can reverse this aging trend. And removing only a few ounces of fat under the chin can make a man look as if he has lost many pounds.

With bariatric (weight loss) surgery on the rise, more and more of its successful patients are left with hanging excess skin, particularly on their arms and abdomen. Liposuction, in conjunction with a brachioplasty (arm lift) and tummy tuck, can help contour the body.

It bears repeating that liposuction is not a substitute for weight loss or exercise. It is used solely for removing pockets of fat directly below the skin that have resisted both. In fact, surgeons generally expect their liposuction patients to be within 20% of their healthy weight before considering the procedure.
