Liposuction for Men

There is an ongoing increase of pressure for men to meet the model image desired by our society, a chiselled Michelangelo figure.  Around 25% of people who have liposuction are male, and the number of men who have or are considering liposuction is increasing year on year.  The process for liposuction tends to be different for men than for women due to the ways fat forms and settles for the different sexes.  Men tend to develop fat deposits around the chest, back stomach, as well as forming love handles.  These areas are a bit harder to remove fat from than others, and can require a bit more work.  Another issue that men can have is true or pseudo gynaecomastic, commonly known as male breasts.  These can also be treated using liposuction, depending on the extent of the condition and the ratios of fat cells to glandular tissues.  Sometimes liposuction will not produce a good result on its own, and as a result further surgery might need to be performed.  

The preparation and suitability for liposuction is very similar for males and females.  You would need to be relatively fit and healthy, liposuction is not suitable for those who are considered very overweight or obese.  It is not a weight loss alternative, and shouldn’t be seen as a quick fix solution. 

Cost of Liposuction for Men

Liposuction generally costs more for men because of the areas that are normally treated.  These, the back, stomach and abdomen, are more fibrous and the fat that men develop is also denser, and as a result need more attention and more intense treatments.  Men also tend to be larger than women, so the liposuction is likely to take longer.

Reducing the size of problem areas can seriously improve your state of mind, and can help you to gain confidence around others.  Male liposuction is seemingly taboo, people don’t associate weight loss surgery with men, it is more widely assumed to be a female issue.  However, it is becoming more and more common, and more men are changing their views on having liposuction.
