Liposuction is one of the intensively preferred cosmetic procedures today. This process, which provides effective body shaping, is preferred not only by women but also by men. How is liposuction applied for men? What are the convenient areas? Things to know, costs and all the details are in our article.


What is Liposuction?

Although diet and exercise are body shaping methods whose effectiveness is proved today, it would not be wrong to say that these methods are insufficient in some cases. Burning stubborn fat, especially in certain body parts, may not be possible with diet and exercise. In such cases, with liposuction, stubborn fat is removed from body.

Liposuction can be expressed as a mini-surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia. You can return to your home the next day after a surgery and you can start doing your daily routines in a short time. There are different types of liposuction including self-inflating, vaser, laser and water jet-assisted.


Liposuction Areas for Men

Liposuction for men can be performed in almost every body part. However, as stated above, the main target here is stubborn fat. Therefore, preferred areas can be listed as follows:

Liposuction Procedure

  • Abdomen

Liposuction is preferred when burning fat in abdominal area and shaping this area are not possible with diet and exercise.

  • Arms

Although arm liposuction is generally popular among women, it has recently become a preferred area for men as well.

  • Chest

It is preferred for removal of accumulated fat in chest area and reshaping there.

  • Thigh

It is preferred to prevent thighs from friction to each other due to stubborn fat and to reshape this area.

  • Chin

Chin liposuction, which is preferred by those who want to have a more distinct chin line, is especially common among young people.


Suitable Candidates in Liposuction for Men

Although liposuction for men allows effective body shaping, it may not be suitable for everyone. At this point, it should not be forgotten that the procedure in question is not a slimming and weight loss procedure.

With liposuction, fat is removed from your body, but the amount removed is low compared to body weight. The main goal here is to shape your body. Therefore, you should be at or close to your ideal weight before liposuction.

Candidates who will have liposuction should be fit and healthy. Besides this, another important condition is that a candidate should have good level of skin elasticity. Removed fat can cause skin sagging. When elasticity is at sufficient level, such sagging will go away on its own, often without any need for an additional procedure. However, it should not be forgotten that additional skin stretching may be required, especially in cases of increasing loss of elasticity with age.

Candidates in Liposuction for Men

It should not be forgotten that the liposuction procedure for men is irreversible. It is not possible to put any removed fat back in the same area. Therefore, the decision regarding liposuction should be taken after careful consideration.

How is the Procedure Applied?

Liposuction procedure for men is a surgical procedure that has stages in itself. The stages of this less invasive procedure are generally as follows:

  • Consultation

Even though it is not given enough attention by many patients, consultation is one of the most important stages of the procedure. At this stage, it is first checked whether you are a suitable candidate for liposuction or not. When it is understood that you are a suitable candidate, the areas where fat will be removed are determined and planning is made.

  • Anesthesia

The procedure is done under local anesthesia. Anesthesia is applied only to the area where the procedure will be performed.

  • Incision Making

Incisions that have sizes between 5-8 mm are opened to previously planned points in order to remove fat from the body. Incisions are usually made in areas where natural curves are. Thus, visible scar risk is minimized.

  • Placement of Cannulas and Removal of Fats

Thin tubes are inserted into the incisions. Then, fat in the relevant area is removed from body by performing a vacuum application.

  • Closing Incisions

Sutures or dissolvable sutures are used to close the incisions.

  • Special Garment (Compression Garment)

After the procedure, you may be given a special garment for the treated area. This garment completely covers the relevant area and positively affects blood flow there. This garment, which supports your recovery process, can help you return to your daily life faster, as well as it increases the success rate of the procedure. (The compression garment is only given for liposuction procedures in certain areas.)

Stages of liposuction procedure for men are generally like this. However, as mentioned above, it should not be forgotten that there will be some application differences for water jet-assisted type or the ones which are performed with laser.

What Should My Expectation Be from the Treatment?

Mild symptoms such as swelling, bruising, pain and inflammation may occur in the respective area after a liposuction procedure for men. Some of these heal on their own over time. Compression garment gives effective results to prevent such effects and it also contributes rapid recovery of these effects that already occurred. After the surgery, pain relievers will be prescribed for your pain and antibiotics against any possible infection. It is extremely important that you use them regularly.

Recovery time may differ depending on the procedure performed. In general, it can be said that patients can return to work after 2-3 days. In spite of that, strenuous activities such as bending down for the first week and lifting weights for the first four weeks should be avoided.

Expectation from the Treatment

Fat loss is clear immediately after surgery, but the first visible result is not certain. Because, depending on some conditions such as swelling, bruising and redness in the relevant area, the result is not fully visible. For definitive result, at least 4 weeks should pass. In some cases, this period may extend up to 6 months.
