In essence then, liposculpture is an elegant solution to an age old problem: How to remove localised areas of fat not responsive to diet or exercise. A relatively minor removal of tissue can lead to a dramatic improvement in body shape and contour.

In general men’s unwanted fatty deposits are most commonly over the abdomen and the flanks or ‘love handles’. It may be an unfortunate name, but that’s what everyone calls them and that’s what men want to get rid of, that unsightly bulge sitting above the belt line which appears unathletic, a sign of middle age. And like all areas treated with liposculpture, there is precious little that diet and exercise can do about it. No number of abdominal crunches or trips to the gym make an impression.

Liposculpture can be a saviour here. It is a reliable way of vastly reducing these fatty bulges that look so unflattering in the mirror in the morning. Often the abdomen is treated at the same time, so the whole of the spare tyre is reduced. But it is not only men with substantial deposits of fat that can be treated effectively with liposculpture.

Some men who have relatively small volumes removed can have a greater percentage of the fat taken away from an area achieving a dramatic and permanent change in shape. Lovehandles can be large or relatively small, the technique is the same and the results are dramatic.

Breast reduction in men is a very commonly requested procedure, regardless of whether the material is fatty tissue, breast tissue or a combination of both. Hereditary deposits of fat over the breast can often cause men unwanted embarrassment, a problem which liposculpture can eliminate. It is possible to go to the beach and wear tighter fitting shirts with new confidence.

In both men and women the neck and under the chin can be successfully sculptured to give a more youthful appearance. Of all the areas of the body which can be treated with liposculpture, the neck can be the most rejuvenating. Many people will comment that you look younger without even realising just why.The underlying skin firmly attaches to the structures beneath, and just as with other areas of the body, looseness of the skin is very unusual.

Breast reduction for men

Liposculpture of the breast is the treatment of choice in the reduction of breast size and improvement in breast shape in men. Many men are often embarrassed by large or unusual shaped breasts that may appear feminine or unathletic. Often a dramatic change in size is achieved and it is possible to return to work after a day or two in most cases. Two or three small access points are used in each breast and disappear quickly after the procedure.

Even removal of relatively small volumes of fat and breast tissue from around the nipple and breast area generally can achieve dramatic results. Clothes can fit better, shirts fit more naturally. Quite often the fatty tissue extends around to the side of the chest. This is removed at the same time, giving a truly natural looking chest.

Larger volumes can be taken from the breast and to the side as appropriate. The result is the same, a more clean unbulky appearance.

Occasionally (approximately 1 in 20 cases), a small incision is needed to remove breast tissue from underneath the nipple. A few small sutures are positioned for ten days.

FAQ // Breast reduction surgery for men

Who is a candidate for liposcupture to the breasts?

Any man with enlarged breasts or breasts which have an unusual distribution of fatty tissue or breast tissue.

Is anyone not a good candidate for breast liposculpture?

If a large proportion of the breast volume is not fat but breast tissue, especially if this is firm, liposculpture to the breast may be less successful. This is unusual, most men with large breasts are good candidates. In such cases the breast tissue must be removed through a small incision in the lower section of the nipple.

Is it permanent?

Yes, the reduction in the size of the breasts is permanent, provided that your weight remains stable after the procedure.

Are there any scars or changes to the nipple sensation?

The small access holes are 2-3mm wide. There are usually 2-3 per side and these settle very quickly. They are not sutured after the procedure and essentially are invisible after a couple of weeks. As all the instruments used in this surgery are quite blunt, there is generally no change to how the nipple feels.

What support garments are required?

A special compressive singlet-like chest garment is used for 10-12 days after the procedure and for the first 2 days, an elastic binder is used as well.

How long does the procedure take?

Most breast reduction procedures take approximately 2 hours to complete.

How much time will I need off?

In general you should plan on taking a day off work or slightly longer if your work is active. It would be about 3 weeks before normal gym activities or jogging should be restarted.

What about the cost?

The cost of this procedure varies according to the areas that require treatment and whether the area is treated alone or in conjunction with other areas. (This is most common.) For an accurate costing, please use the online consultation or make an appointment by phoning (02) 99061555.

Neck

In both men and women the neck and under the chin can be successfully sculptured to give a more youthful appearance. Of all the areas of the body which can be treated with liposculpture, the neck can be the most rejuvenating. Many people will comment that you look younger without even realising just why. The underlying skin firmly attaches to the structures beneath, and just as with other areas of the body, looseness of the skin is very unusual.

FAQ // Neck liposculpture for men

Who is a candidate for neck liposculpture?

Anyone who has loose skin and fatty tissue in the neck. The procedure works well for people with a “double chin”, for many people with a heavy jowl area and lower face and for people who lack definition to the lower jaw.

Is anyone not a good candidate for neck liposculpture?

Some people have loose neck muscles ( platysma ) or sometimes there is not a sharp angle between the angle of the jaw and the neck. These people will benefit from neck liposculpture, but it may need to be combined with Botox injections or possibly a face lift (in some patients).

Is it permanent?

Yes, the reduction in the size of the neck is permanent, even if your weight changes substantially.

Are there any scars?

The small access holes are approximately 2mm wide. There are usually 2-3 per side and these settle very quickly. They are not sutured after the procedure and essentially are invisible after a couple of weeks.

What support garments are required?

A special light elastic neck garment is used for the first few days after the procedure and then at night only for a further 4 nights.

How long does the procedure take?

Most neck liposculpture procedures take from between 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours to complete.

How much time will I need off?

In general you should plan on taking 1-2 days off work or slightly longer if your work is active. It would be about 1 week before normal gym activities or jogging should be restarted.

And the cost?

The cost of this procedure varies according to the areas that require treatment and whether the area is treated alone or in conjunction with other areas, such as jowl and facial liposculpture (this is most common). For an accurate costing, please use the online consultation or make an appointment by phoning (02) 9906 1555.

Abdomen

In general men’s unwanted fatty deposits are most commonly over the abdomen and the flanks or ‘love handles’. They tend to increase with age and just about every man has them to some extent. Big or small, reduction of these areas will make a huge improvement to shape. There is less excess to hang over the belt and the improvement in profile when you stand in front of the mirror can be dramatic.

Often liposculpture of the abdomen can be combined with treatment of the hips and waist and the size of the whole torso is reduced, creating a waist, getting rid of that square look and giving the whole central section a real rejuvenation.

FAQ // Abdominal liposculpture for men

Who is a candidate for liposcupture to the abdomen?

Anyone with excess abdominal fat can benefit from this procedure. The amount of fat that can be removed depends on the volume present to start with, but a general approximation would be about 70% of the volume present. So regardless of your size the end result will be much smaller.

Is anyone not a good candidate for abdominal liposculpture?

People with hernias over the areas to be treated will need to have these repaired before the procedure. Sometimes men have a large proportion of the abdominal fat within the abdomen itself (behind the muscles) and not in front. They are less suitable for liposculpture, but still may benefit to some extent.

Is it permanent?

Yes, the reduction in the abdomen is permanent, provided that your weight remains stable no more than a weight gain of a few kilos after the procedure.

Are there any scars or changes to sensation?

The small access holes are 2-5mm wide. There are usually 4-5 for treatment of the abdomen, but they can be hidden at the lower margin of the abdomen and in the umbilicus. They are not sutured after the procedure and essentially are invisible after a couple of weeks. As all the instruments used in this surgery are quite blunt, there is generally no change to how the abdomen feels after the first few weeks.

What support garments are required?

A special lycra bodysuit compressive chest garment is used for about two weeks after the procedure.

How long does the procedure take?

Most abdominal liposuction procedures take from between 2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete.

How much time will I need off?

In general you should plan on taking 1-2 days off work or slightly longer if your work is active. It would be about 3 weeks before normal gym activities or jogging should be restarted.

And the cost?

The cost of this procedure varies according to the areas that require treatment and whether the area is treated alone or in conjunction with other areas, such as jowl and facial liposculpture (this is most common).

Love Handles

It may be an unfortunate name, but that’s what everyone calls them and that’s what men want to get rid of, that unsightly bulge sitting above the belt line which appears unathletic, a sign of middle age. And like all areas treated with liposculpture, there is precious little that diet and exercise can do about it. No number of abdominal crunches or trips to the gym make an impression.

Liposculpture can be a saviour here. It is a reliable way of vastly reducing these fatty bulges that look so unflattering in the mirror in the morning. Often the abdomen is treated at the same time, so the whole of the spare tyre is reduced. Love handles can be large or relatively small, the technique is the same and the results are dramatic.

FAQ // Love Handles liposculpture for men

Who is a candidate for liposcupture to the love handles?

Any man with accumulations of fat at or just above the level of the belt can benefit from this procedure. If you can pinch a roll of fat between your fingers here or see a bulge at this level in the mirror, liposculpture will help get rid of this area.

Is it permanent?

Yes, the reduction in the size of the lovehandles is permanent as most of the fat cells have been removed.

Are there any scars?

There are usually 3-4 small 2-5mm wide access holes per area treated. These are not sutured after the procedure and essentially are invisible after a couple of weeks.

What other areas are treated at the same time?

Many if not most men will elect to have the abdomen treated at the same time. This makes sense as the love handles usually continue into the abdomen and treatment of the whole of the spare tyre will give the best results. Breast reduction is also sometimes helpful and can be sometimes treated at the same time or more commonly separately.

What support garments are required?

A special compressive suit is worn for 12 days to 2 weeks after the procedure. This is a light garment and can be easily worn under normal clothes, though a dark coloured shirt is necessary, so the the colour of the garment does not show through.

How long does the procedure take?

Most procedures involving the love handles take from between 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

How much time will I need off?

In general you should plan on taking 1-2 days off work. It would be about 3 weeks before normal gym activities or jogging should be restarted.

And the cost?

The cost of this procedure varies according to the areas that require treatment and whether the area is treated alone or in conjunction with other areas, such as jowl and facial liposculpture (this is most common).
