What is male liposuction?

Male liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that breaks down unwanted body fat.

Using the most appropriate fat removal surgery method, male patients are given a smoother, more contoured appearance to their chosen area.

Liposuction for men should not be thought of as a weight loss procedure. Patients should be close to their goal weight with a healthy body mass index (BMI) and good skin elasticity in order to be deemed acceptable for the surgery.

This procedure breaks down localised fat deposits and stubborn fat cells that can't be removed with a healthy diet and exercise.

Liposuction surgery is not recommended for those with loose skin or male patients wanting to improve the look of skin dimpling and stretch marks.

Benefits of fat removal surgery

The key benefit of cosmetic procedures is an increase in confidence. Men find that after liposuction surgery, they feel more confident taking their tops off and wearing tighter clothing, greatly improving overall comfort and quality of life.

Other benefits include:

  • Motivation to pursue a healthy lifestyle

  • Removing unwanted fat can reduce excess sweating and chaffing

  • A more in-proportion physique

Procedure Overview: Male fat removal surgery

Male Liposuction is the removal of unwanted and stubborn fat from problem areas on the body. The fat removal procedure is becoming an increasingly popular treatment for men due to the variety of contouring techniques available to create different and personalised end results.

Our experienced and skilled surgeons used advanced liposuction techniques to target and remove excess fat deposits from areas of the body including the abdomen, flanks and chest.

Techniques available at MYA include Traditional, Laser and Vaser liposuction for men, each having its own benefit and purpose.


The superior PowerX technology can remove up to four litres of fat in just two hours under local anaesthetic using ultrasound technology to loosen fat cells surrounding the tissue and is minimally invasive. The recovery time is much shorter meaning the procedure can take place within a MYA clinic with no overnight stay.


Laser liposuction for men is used to shape and sculpt smaller problem areas. The procedure is minimally invasive, with a relatively short recovery time, so the procedure can take place within a MYA clinic with no overnight stay.


Traditional liposuction for men is suitable for removing large areas of fat. The procedure is more invasive than the modern styles of liposuction for men increasing the recovery time slightly as an overnight stay is required. However, patients often return to normal activity in the few days following the procedure.

All of the male liposuction procedures generally require a few days off work and for a compression garment to be worn in the weeks following the procedure to assist with the healing process.

*There is no guarantee of specific outcomes so individual results and experiences can vary from person to person.

Male liposuction recovery

After undergoing male liposuction procedures, you will be required to take one week off work to rest and heal.

Pain, swelling and bruising are completely normal and nothing to be concerned about. All patients will be provided with pain relief to ease this to further aid recovery.

A compression garment must be worn at all times for 4-6 weeks post-op (as advised by the MYA surgeon) to reduce swelling and protect the scars.

For the majority of patients, swelling subsides gradually between 7 and 21 days post-op, but it can take up to 12 weeks for it to completely go.

It's recommended you avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for 4-6 weeks after having male liposuction procedures to ensure you're completely healed.

Post-liposuction life will be discussed in more detail during the consultation process and after the procedure is complete.
