Fine-tune your masculine figure with a liposculpture for men.
Everyone can face challenges when working on sculpting their ideal body contour. Even when the number on the scale is on target, isolated bulges of fat can interfere with your final weight loss results. More and more men are finding that liposculpture is an ideal way to sculpt their body and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise.
At IMAGN INSTITUTE, we offer a variety of liposuction techniques to our male patients to help them achieve all of their body contouring goals. These advanced methods produce superior results to traditional liposuction, with less discomfort and downtime involved. With unsurpassed precision, our board-certified team of surgeons can create the tone you are looking for at the same time that they remove stubborn fat cells, sculpting your profile into the body you will be proud to flaunt at the beach or gym.
Are You a Candidate for a liposculpture for men?
Men who are in good health and have reached a stable weight respond best to liposculpture procedures. The results of these treatments are permanent, as long as you do not gain weight afterwards, so it is important to commit to a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain your sleek new shape. While the most common treatment area for men is the abdomen, other target locations might include:
- Around the neck and underneath the chin
- Pectoral muscles and upper abs
- Upper and lower back
- Upper arms
- Hips and flanks (love handles)
- Thighs and lower legs
Our surgeons will evaluate your concerns to determine whether liposculpture may provide you with the results you want. In some cases, multiple treatment areas can be addressed in a single session. Liposculpture is not a weight loss treatment, and if you are significantly overweight, you may be asked to shed those extra pounds before scheduling your liposculpture procedure.
If you lost a massive amount of weight before pursuing liposuction, you might also find that loose skin is an issue. The skin may not have time to conform to the new body contour as the weight drops, leading to folds of skin that interfere with your new physique and cause irritation and discomfort. In these situations, your surgeon may recommend a tummy tuck or other surgical lift procedure to tighten up the skin and create a smoother body contour. Liposuction can be performed along with the lift to produce the best results.
Liposculpture for men Approaches
Power-Assisted Liposculpture (PAL®-HD)
This technique uses high-frequency vibration to loosen fat cells so they can be removed with less trauma to surrounding tissue. The advantage of this approach is that it allows for a gentler procedure with less discomfort and downtime than traditional tumescent liposuction alone. We use the latest in power-assisted liposculpture, the MicroAire. This device does not use heat, which reduces the risk of side effects and complications without sacrificing superior results.
Ultrasonic Liposculpture for men
This liposculpture technique is a particularly attractive option for male patients, due to its ability to sculpt the coveted six-pack abdomen. Also known as ultrasound-assisted liposuction, UAL or VASERlipo, this procedure allows for great precision. Ultrasonic energy is delivered by small probes to shake the fat cells loose, providing the easiest possible removal process. This method can be used both on larger and smaller treatment areas, with the ability to carefully create definition not seen with other liposuction procedures.
Laser Liposculpture for men
Laser-assisted liposuction, or LAL, is another innovative option that takes liposculpture to the next level. This procedure uses laser energy to liquefy fat cells for easier elimination from the body. This method is particularly attractive for smaller areas like the chin and neck. As a bonus, the laser heat provides some mild to moderate skin constriction in the treatment area, which may create a smoother result overall.

The Recovery Process
Recovery from liposuction is relatively quick, usually taking just a few days. You will see positive results right away and the outcome will continue to improve as swelling and bruising subside. As long as you maintain your current weight, your new contour should be permanent.
