Men usually tend to store excess fat in the mid-torso area such as the flanks, the “spare tire” region, “love handles,” “muffin top”, and “beer belly.” These are the sites that male liposuction cosmetic surgery specifically targets.
Women tend to store fat in the region between their ribs and knees. However, men put on weight in different sites. Therefore, men considering liposuction should seek a surgeon who has expertise in eliminating excess fat while contouring the male torso for a more toned, fit, and handsome appearance.
In performing male liposuction, the surgeon may create tiny apertures with a narrow needle to place the cannula instead of making bigger incisions on the skin. This prevents the development of any noticeable scarring or tell-tale signs following the liposuction procedure.

Various Types of Male Liposuction
In traditional liposuction plastic surgery, the surgeon removes excess fat through slender, hollow wands known as cannulae. The surgeon will manually manipulate the blunt cannula in the deeper fat layers to dislodge the unwanted fat cells.
Tumescent liposuction (super-wet-technique liposuction) involves the injection of saline solution into the fatty deposits prior to male liposuction. This helps loosen the fat and reduce bruising and bleeding by contracting the blood vessels.
Laser liposuction is also known as “Smart Lipo”. In this procedure, the surgeon passes a probe beneath the skin to melt the fatty pockets. This transforms the fat into a liquefied. The surgeon then removes this liquefied fat through traditional liposuction in a less traumatic manner.
However, laser lipo is carried out only in smaller areas. The surgeon would not use it on more significant regions as it can lead to the creation of a massive amount of fluid beneath the skin, causing seroma formation. Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) uses ultrasonic wavelengths to dislodge fat enabling easy extraction.
Motivation to Maintain a Healthy Body
Male liposuction is an effective body contouring treatment. However, it does not treat obesity, and it cannot replace a balanced diet and exercise regimen.
A good incidental benefit of male liposuction is that many men are more motivated to follow a healthy lifestyle after experiencing the near instant slimming effect of the procedure. It is not uncommon for such men to remain committed to weight loss and enjoy an enhancement in their self-esteem.
Male Liposuction Goals
No amount of diet and exercise can help reduce fat in certain sites on the body. In such cases, male liposuction can help the patient eliminate these stubborn deposits of fat creating a slimmer, more sculpted torso with toned abs. Male liposuction can successfully eliminate an unappealing “muffin top” of surplus fat that spills out over the belt or waistband.
