What do I need to know about liposuction for men?
Many men are bothered by stubborn areas of fat in their neck, chest, belly, and sides (love handles). As men age, stubborn fat can be more difficult to remove with diet and exercise only. Some men have genetically inherited “stubborn fat” that is very difficult to lose despite a healthy diet and exercise, even at a young age. Liposuction is an effective way to eliminate fat that is resistant to weight loss. Male liposuction can also help reshape specific areas and define your muscles to achieve a sculpted body. If you are thinking of getting liposuction to enhance your body, keep reading this guide to find out the essential aspects of liposuction for men.

How is Men Liposuction performed?
Male liposuction is an outpatient surgical procedure. Dr. Azouz usually performs male liposuction in Dallas under local and sedation anesthesia. During the surgery, tiny incisions are made in hidden areas to remove fat. These incisions will heal in a short time, and liposuction scars are positioned to be camouflaged in areas that are not visible (such as the pubic hair or near the areola).
How long is Liposuction recovery?
Typically full recovery takes 5 or 6 weeks. After male liposuction surgery, the patient will wear compression garments to provide good contour and prevent swelling. Pain is usually minimal, and most men describe a soreness rather than any intense pain. The patient can usually return to work a few days after the surgery, depending on their work responsibilities. Exercise routines and regular daily activities are typically resumed in a few weeks after the procedure.
How long do men liposuction results last?
If patients maintain their weight, the liposuction results will last for many years and are considered permanent. After liposuction recovery, it is recommended to follow a healthy lifestyle, including a well-balanced diet and exercise.
