Liposuction and Men- How Common Is It Really?

You’re thinking about liposuction, but aren’t sure if many men really have the procedure done. We’ll be honest, plastic surgery isn’t as common with men as it is with women, but it is definitely becoming more accepted. Liposuction was the top cosmetic surgical procedure for men in 2015, a trend that is likely to continue. In the U.S. alone more than 51,000 men received liposuction that year. Liposuction is growing in popularity amongst our male patients. Once you see the benefits, we’re guessing that you’ll wish you came in sooner. And if you don’t want anyone to know you’ve had liposuction, don’t tell them. It can be our little secret.

What Happens During Liposuction?

During liposuction a small incision is made near the treatment area. We insert a cannula through the incision and use suction to remove the unwanted fat. Often a series of incisions are needed to achieve optimal results. Incisions are always placed in inconspicuous locations to minimize the appearance of scarring.

Liposuction isn’t a weight loss treatment, but rather a body contouring procedure. Its ideal purpose is to shape and contour the body and to treat stubborn areas of isolated, unwanted fat.

What Areas Are Ideal for Liposuction Treatment in Men?

Where do you have unwanted fat? Men commonly receive liposuction in the following areas, but we can target most areas where you have stubborn fat.

  • Chest (Gynecomastia)
  • Love Handles (Flanks)
  • Abdomen
  • Under the Chin (Double Chin)

I Can’t Miss a Lot of Work. What’s Recovery Like After Liposuction?

Recovery times for liposuction are fairly short and you’ll be back to work quickly, often just a few days after treatment. Most men miss between 2-5 days from work. You’ll need to avoid strenuous activities for about 4-6 weeks. After surgery you’ll also need to wear a compression garment on the treatment area for 2-4 weeks. This helps the skin to conform to its new contours.

Some patients may be able to benefit from a non-surgical fat reduction treatment, potentially without downtime. Kybella® is an injectable treatment used to treat fat under the chin. We also offer other non-surgical body contouring options. Ask us if you’re a good candidate for a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
