Liposuction for men in Los Angeles

Liposuction for men

Adult males are increasingly interested in a procedure known as male liposuction.  The best candidates for male liposuction are those individuals who follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen and who still has stubborn areas of unwanted fat along the neck area, waistline, and abdomen. 


Men have a different pattern of fat accumulation when compared to women.  Women have more of a hormonal pattern of fat distribution, whereas men more have a genetically prone distribution of fat along the waistline and neck areas.  Our Los Angeles plastic surgery office provides expertise in male liposuction and can custom-tailor a specific liposculpture technique to your needs.


We are often asked by men whether they are candidates for male liposuction.  The best candidates are those who utilize the benefits of male liposuction alongside a healthy exercise regimen and a healthy diet.  Liposuction is not a bulk fat removal technique, but rather a safe procedure designed to sculpt the body using small incisions on the skin.  Incisions are used to remove excess fat underneath the skin using a small liposuction cannula.  Typically, tumescent anesthesia is used to numb the skin during the procedure.  Liposuction can be performed on a small area, a technique known as mini liposuction.  Otherwise, for patients who want more of a body sculpting procedure, liposuction can be used for gynecomastia, neck liposuction, and recontouring at the entire abdomen and waistline.  Dr. Karamanoukian uses different types of liposuction techniques, all of which provides state of the art improvement in body contour.


What are the most common areas of liposuction treatment for men?

Liposuction is most commonly performed on the neck and chin areas, the love handles, flanks, and gynecomastia.  Gynecomastia refers to excess fatty deposits along the breast area.


What types of liposuction are performed in Los Angeles?

Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian performs all aspect of liposuction including laser liposuction, ultrasound liposuction, laser liposuction, tumescent liposuction, mini liposuction, and liposculpture.  These techniques are specifically tailored to healthy men who desire a reduction in unwanted body fat.  Dr. Karamanoukian will perform an initial consultation and determine which customized treatment is appropriate for you.


What is recovery like after male liposuction?

The amount of recovery depends on the severity of the unwanted fat and the amount of liposuction to be performed.  Most patients will return to normal activities within several days of the procedure, but will require approximately one month for most of the residual swelling to subside.  The amount of compression support after the procedure will determine how fast someone will recover after the surgery.  You may return to normal exercise regimen within one week of a liposuction procedure.
