Male Liposuction

Male liposuction may help you get rid of unwanted fat deposits

Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, stubborn pockets of fat persist. In men, this tends to occur around the abdomen, waist, chest and chin. Liposculpture can help.

Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic procedures. It can be used to target specific areas, reducing areas of fat that present an aesthetic concern for the patient.

Why Patients Might Consider Male Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures worldwide. The procedure may be considered for a number of different reasons. Some of the most common areas to target include:

  • Chest and back
  • Abdomen
  • Neck and chin
  • Upper arms and legs
  • Hips and thighs

Recovery after Male Liposuction

The recovery period after male liposuction surgery can take several weeks, depending on how much fat was removed. During this time, make sure to take analgesic medication to alleviate the pain and discomfort.

It is best to avoid strenuous physical activities during the first two weeks after male lipo surgery and make sure to take time off from work to allow your body to heal. Here are more recommendations for the recovery period after male liposuction:

  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for at least two weeks
  • Avoid steam rooms and saunas
  • Have a healthy and balanced diet
  • Keep your body hydrated

To avoid risks and complications that could occur during the recovery period make sure to follow Dr Hunt’s indications.

  • Bleeding and bruising
  • Reactions to anaesthesia
  • Infection
  • Numbness
  • Asymmetry
  • Poor results

Male Liposuction FAQs

Is male liposuction for me?

Liposuction can be suitable for men with persistent pockets of fat. Good candidates should be fit and healthy without medical conditions that could interfere with the procedure, at a stable weight, and they should have realistic goals.

Liposuction shouldn’t be seen as a weight loss technique, as the weight of the fat removed is very small in relation to total body weight.

Dr Hunt meets with every potential patient individually to determine the most appropriate approach to the procedure. During your consultation with Dr Hunt, he’ll explain liposuction surgery in detail, evaluate your suitability for the procedure, and answer any questions you may have.

What's involved in Male Lipo?

Male liposuction will be performed in the hospital of your choice, under general anaesthetic administered by one of Dr Hunt’s preferred partners. Each of Dr Hunt’s anaesthetists is a highly experienced member of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists.

Dr Hunt will perform either suction- or ultrasound-assisted lipectomy, as determined in your consultation, after making tiny incisions in the target areas. Removing the fat cells from the target areas is generally a one or two-hour process.

When can I go home after liposuction for men?

Depending on the extent of your surgery, you will go home either the same or the next day. At this point, you’ll be prescribed pain medication to help manage any discomfort.

Will I have to return for post-operative care after liposuction?

You’ll see Dr Hunt five days after your surgery. All sutures are dissolvable so do not need to be removed.

You’ll then visit Dr Hunt at three and six weeks, and again at three, six and 12 months.

How long will I be off work after lipo surgery in Sydney?

You should plan to take a few days off work.

When can I resume my normal activities after liposuction NSW?

When you get home from hospital, you will need to limit your movements to around the house for the first few days. You’ll be wearing compression garments, which must not be removed during this time, and you should eat lightly and get plenty of fluids.

After three days you can shower and replace the compression garments, which should be worn continuously for two to three weeks, and then at night for a further two to three weeks. These garments help to define your new shape.

During the first three weeks after surgery, you mustn’t do any activities that increase your heart rate above 100 beats per minute. However, after six weeks, you can resume all exercise.

When will I see the end result of lipo surgery?

The benefits of liposuction are immediate, although it may take up to two months until you see your final results.
