Liposuction in Men - Los Angeles Plastic Surgeon

The abdomen and waistline are common areas of concern for men who have gained weight in their 20, 30s and 40s.  The abdominal fat pattern of weight gain occurs in men and women, but in different characteristic ways.  Women tend to gain weight in the mid-section, which includes the breast, abdomen, hips, thighs, and bra fat areas; whereas men tend to isolate excessive fat in the waistline.  These patterns of excess fat accumulation may depend largely on hormonal changes men and women as they age.


If you have abdominal fat and are considering male liposuction, now may be the time to schedule an appointment and surgery to remove the fat with small incisions.  Liposculpture is custom-tailored to remove excess areas of fat using small incisions and a specialized vacuum device that sucks away unwanted fat.  The procedure has been used safely for the last three decades and has vastly improved over that same period.  Liposuction in men is a very gratifying procedure that can reshape and recontour the waistline in patients who have had a hard time losing the fat with normal diet and exercise.  It is believed that metabolic resistance in fat is due to genetic and hormonal changes that make certain areas non-amenable to diet and exercise.


During the procedure, anesthesia is provided and small incisions are made in well-hidden areas of the abdomen to remove excess fat with liposuction.  Patients recover relatively quickly, but the amount of swelling and bruising is dependent on the severity of the excess fat and the amount of liposuction performed.


Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian is an expert in liposuction, and especially male liposuction in Los Angeles.  He is a double board certified surgeon and an expert in cosmetic plastic surgery.  He has devised specific protocols for male liposuction and can custom-tailor a treatment to your specific need.  If you have a rigorous work schedule and have limited downtime or recovery, Dr. Karamanoukian can also recommend the liposonix procedure which can safely melt fat underneath the skin without incisions or surgery.  To discuss the differences between liposonix and liposuction, please call our Los Angeles plastic surgery office at 310-998-5533.
