Sculpting a Masculine Figure with Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures because it offers a precise and effective way to shape and contour the body. For men, this means liposuction can be done to sculpt their ideal masculine figure. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Wagner specializes in liposuction for men and has the skills and experience needed to deliver amazing results to our patients in Indianapolis.

The Benefits of Liposuction for Men

It can be difficult to hit your dream physique. While dieting and exercise can help you shed excess fat and build muscles for increased definition, fat in certain body areas can be incredibly stubborn.

If you find yourself struggling to target specific pockets of fat, liposuction provides the precision you need. Some of the common problems a lot of men have include:

  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks

Ideal Candidates for Male Liposuction

The focus of male liposuction is typically on creating a more muscular and athletic figure. For this reason, the ideal candidates should be close to their ideal body weight.

Additionally, they shouldn’t have loose skin around the areas they want to treat. Body contouring surgery that removes both excess skin and fat may be the best option.

Finally, ideal candidates should have realistic expectations of the entire procedure.
Liposuction is not a weight loss solution. It is a body contouring procedure that can reshape the figure by removing fat.

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for male liposuction is to schedule a consultation with a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon. They can examine the areas of your body you want to treat and can let you know if liposuction can provide you with your desired results.

How Liposuction Is Performed

Dr. Wagner prefers to use power-assisted liposuction (PAL) over traditional liposuction because men typically have fat that is more fibrous and dense compared to the fat found in women. Traditional liposuction requires the fat to be manually separated from the surrounding tissue using a tube called a cannula. The loosened fat is then sucked up through the cannula and out of the body.

With PAL, the cannula is attached to a device that allows it to vibrate rapidly. This makes it easier to remove the denser fat while also reducing the amount of trauma caused to the surrounding tissue so there is less bruising post-procedure.

Recovering from Male Liposuction

The recovery time following liposuction is relatively short, around a week or so on average, but the exact amount of time needed will depend on factors like the amount of fat removed and the areas treated.

You’ll most likely experience some side effects and discomfort that will last for around one week or more. Some of these include:

  • Swelling and bruising
  • Pain and discomfort around the treated areas
  • In some cases, general numbness
