Male Liposuction Before and After Tips

Male Liposuction Before And After

Take a look at any male liposuction before and after pictures, and you can see the difference this simple surgery can make. Even men who are relatively buff prior to liposuction can benefit from this procedure. This is because lipo can get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, especially as you age.

If you are a man seeking liposuction for your abdomen, “love handles” (flanks), pubic area, or elsewhere, this article is for you. Below, we’ll go over our top tips for men undergoing liposuction.

Top Tips for Male Liposuction Before and After

#1 – Make Sure It’s Liposuction You Actually Need

For men liposuction is exactly what the doctor ordered to reduce excess body fat. But for other male patients who have loose skin on their abdomens, a tummy tuck might be better.

A tummy tuck procedure can remove excess skin and tighten the abdominal muscles — two issues that are common in men, especially after significant weight loss.

Keep in mind that if you have excess fat and excess skin on your abdomen, then abdominal liposuction and tummy tuck surgery can be combined in most cases.

#2 – You May Need to Undergo Pre-Surgery TestsMale Liposuction Before And After Photos

Most patients who are in good physical health are quality candidates for liposuction. It is a fairly straightforward and commonly performed plastic surgery.

However, there are certain patients who may need to undergo additional medical tests or get clearance from their primary care physician prior to undergoing liposuction. Some of these examinations may include blood tests or scans to ensure you are in proper health for undergoing surgery.

#3 – Follow Your Pre-Surgery Instructions Carefully

Before undergoing liposuction surgery, your plastic surgeon will have some specific guidelines for you. For example, some patients who regularly take blood thinning medications will need to stop or alter these prior to surgery. You’ll need to give your surgeon a full list of any medications or supplements you are currently taking.

Additionally, make sure you’re eating properly and exercising. You should be moving your body every day and eating a diet that is full of vegetables, a moderate intake of fruits, lots of protein, and healthy fats. Protein is one of the best things you can focus on prior to undergoing surgery as it will help strengthen you, especially during male liposuction recovery time.

Other instructions may include stopping smoking, stopping sunbathing or tanning, and of course, readying your home for the recovery period and seeking post-surgery assistance from friends and family if you think you’ll need it.

#4 – Plan in Advance for Your Recovery

Your plastic surgeon will go over liposuction recovery at your consultation and pre-surgery appointments. Liposuction recovery tends to be fairly simple and straightforward. You shouldn’t expect any long-term difficulties, but it is a good idea to take at least a few days to one week off from work.

Also remember that recovery after plastic surgery can be more difficult for older males. If you are a 25 year old male undergoing liposuction, you’ll probably bounce back fairly quickly. A 50 year old male undergoing liposuction may need a bit more time to recover properly.

FAQ: Male Liposuction

Is liposuction good for men?

Yes, if you are a man who has stubborn pockets of excess fat on your abdomen, flanks, chest, or elsewhere, liposuction can be an excellent procedure for reducing this fat and giving you a sleeker, fitter physique. To see the benefits of liposuction male before and after photos can show remarkable results with little to no male liposuction scarring.

Can you get liposuction on the love handles?

Yes, the flanks, commonly known as the “love handles”, are a frequent location for liposuction. Many of the men who underwent liposuction tend to accumulate fat here, especially as they age. To see examples of male love handle liposuction before and after, please see our gallery.

How much is male liposuction?

When it comes to male liposuction cost, the ultimate price doesn’t really factor in whether the patient is male or female. Rather, it depends on how much liposuction is needed to achieve the patient’s desired results and what specific techniques are required.

Patients who want a significant reduction of fat in multiple areas will end up with a higher bill than patients who only want a small amount of liposuction in one or two places.
