Men retain their skin elasticity longer than women do, and the areas of fat beneath the skin tend to be firmer and more vascular than those in women. Because of these and other factors, liposuction in men is usually very effective.

Suitable candidates for male liposuction

Overal healthy men who want to remove areas of unwanted fat or reshape particular areas of the body can be helped with male liposuction.

It is always best to consult your surgeon who will advise what type of procedure is suitable for you to have the best possible result. If you have excessive overweight, this treatment is not suitable for you and you might consider a gastric bypass surgery

Male liposuction procedure

The operation is performed under a general anaesthetic, or local anaesthetic with sedation often as a day case.

It is a fairly quick procedure, a very small incision is made to extract the fat and is closed with a stitch or dissolvable suture.

What to expect?

Most patients have hardly any pain after liposculpture. The special anaesthetic lasts about a day, then the tissue and muscles may feel somewhat stiff or tight. When you are at home you can take some paracetamol if necessary. You should take into account that a reddish serum can leak from the wounds for the first few days. At home you may need to use a mattress cover the first night.

Despite the fact that some people don't take any time off work after having liposculpture, you can take a few days off to rest. It is important though to move around as normal as possible. 

After 4-8 days you can resume your normal activities. After 10 days you can start to play sports, swim and cycle again. 4 weeks later you are fully recovered and can also carry out heavy physical work.

Small inconveniences, such as local sensory disorders or small subcutaneous lesions may occur. They usually disappear within a few months. Post-operative massage and lymphatic drainage are sometimes prescribed. 

Make sure to discuss all your questions and concerns with your surgeon.

What are the advantages of liposuction?
Less bruising, reduced risk of swelling and sensory disorders, reduced risk, less pain, accurate fat removal, permanently removed fat cells, no damage to blood vessels, no scars, quick recovery, smoother skin, permanent result.
Are the results permanent?
Yes. During puberty the body produces fat cells. However in adulthood this production stops. These cells swell due to bad eating habits. Dieting causes the cells to become smaller while liposculpture permanently eliminates fat cells. After liposculpture the body doesn't produce any new fat cells.

The procedure is not designed for general weight loss. If you are overweight, you are advised to follow a supervised weight loss programme first.The accumulation of fluid & lymfoedema is often the cause of puffy legs.
