Liposuction for Men
Many men have stubborn fat deposits despite working hard to improve their physique. Liposuction, one of the most common procedures requested by men in the US, is highly effective in eliminating targeted areas of unwanted fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Permanently removing unwanted fat with liposuction can have the following benefits:
- Improving your body shape
- Increase your self-confidence and enhance your personal relationships
- Allow you to wear more fitted clothes and be more comfortable, refining your overall appearance
- Motivate you to stay fit and healthy
At Belcara Helath, our surgeons have extensive experience performing liposuction procedures to help you achieve what healthy living cannot – permanently removing fat and sculpting your body to improve your overall shape. Common areas of concern for men are flanks, abdomen, back, neck, arms and chest (male breast reduction).
Who can benefit from liposuction?
Most men who are relatively close to their normal weight are good candidates for liposuction. While liposuction is an excellent tool for eliminating unwanted fat to improve body shape, it does not address excessive, sagging skin. If excessive, sagging skin is a concern, a Body Lift procedure might be recommended by your surgeon.
Special techniques for enhanced recovery
At Belcara Health, liposuction surgery is done on an outpatient basis in our fully accredited Belcara Health Surgery Center. We always work with board-certified MD anesthesiologists to ensure your safety.
Liposuction procedures can last from 1 to 5 hours, depending upon the amount of fat to be removed and the number of areas being treated. General anesthesia is usually used for safety and comfort. Our surgeons use an ultrasound-assisted liposuction technique that uses ultrasonic energy to melt the fat prior to removal. This allows your surgeon to use smaller incisions, thinner cannulas to sculpt the area more precisely, and gentler techniques to remove the fat. This advanced technique causes less trauma for reduced swelling and less post-operative discomfort.
Following your surgery, you will be able to rest comfortably at home. You will receive compression garments to wear for the first few weeks, to help keep swelling to a minimum and expedite the healing process. These garments are thin and fit easily under your everyday clothes.
Most men are may return to work within a week and exercise in about a month. While many patients see a difference shortly after surgery, it generally takes about 3 months to see optimal results.

I felt like Dr. Cohen and his staff addressed my specific needs and concerns as a person, not a “procedure”. They did not rush me, they answered all of my questions, they made me comfortable about something I am not secure about, and they did not pressure me into making a decision before I was ready. I have worked in health care myself for 12 years now, and Dr. Cohen and his staff are by far the most professional team I have ever encountered. My body looks exactly like I’d dreamed it would and I couldn’t be happier.
