Liposuction Surgery / Fat Removal for Men


Believe it or not, one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the UK is currently male liposuction.

In previous years, liposuction was a surgical procedure typically associated with females with a tummy tuck being a popular method for females to quickly regain their physique and confidence. However, more males in the 21st century are turning to cosmetic procedures such as liposuction, to gain the appearance they desire and overcome any body image issues.

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure aiming to remove any stubborn body fat from the patient, and male liposuction forces specifically at the male body. The majority of men have problems losing fat from different areas of their body despite eating healthily and gaining regular exercise. This fat can be due to genetic factors or even the result of medical conditions, such as gynecomastia.

Treatment applies to different body types and can be used to treat body areas below the neck, some of the most commonly treated areas are:

✓ Breasts ✓ Hips ✓ Abdomen ✓ Flanks ✓ Back ✓ Arms ✓ Buttocks ✓ Thighs ✓ Knees

About Your Liposuction Procedure

Procedure Tppe: Performed under anaestheticHow does liposuction work?

Procedure Time: 1 -3 hours

No of proc needed: 1/area

Recovery Time: 8-10 weeks


Both males and females present with two layers of fat beneath the skin, and it is liposuction that targets the deeper layer of fat. During a traditional procedure, the cosmetic surgeon will make small incisions into the body and utilise a thin tube known as a cannula to disintegrate the fat. The breaking up of the fat will prompt removal of the fat and this is then removed using a surgical vacuum or syringe. This is a simple procedure and can be done quickly, but it can take longer if the patient requires fat removal from multiple areas.

What Are The Benefits Of Liposuction For Men?

In recent years, liposuction has grown in demand among males who are attempting to look younger and gain the body they have always desired. Traditionally, females were concerned with their appearance; however, an increasing number of males are more conscious of their bodies and have gained an understanding of how liposuction can benefit them.

Male’s bodies differ significantly from female bodies when it comes to fat burning as they store fat in different areas. Women present with fatty deposit around the mid-section, whereas males struggle with fat collecting around the upper abdomen and the loins. The fatty deposits around the loins are typically known as ‘love handles’. Liposuction procedures performed specifically on these areas will assist males in achieving their ideal body.

Liposuction is a permanent treatment removing the unwanted fat cells completely. This is particularly beneficial for individuals who are unsure of how to maintain a healthy lifestyle; however, it should not be utilised as a treatment for obesity and must not be used as a substitute for healthy living.

What Are The Risks Of Liposuction For Men?

As with all things in life, liposuction presents with risks as well as benefits. Some typical side effects of the process include inflammation, numbness, bleeding, bruising, and skin burns in the affected area. More severe complications can be the development of infections, blood clots, or kidney problems.
