Liposuction for men is more advantageous whenever the individual needs significant fat reduction, or multi-area liposuction, or body sculpting. Liposuction for men is performed much the same as it is for women. However, men request liposuction on different areas of their body than women. Women most often request thighs, abdomen, arms, and hips liposuction. Liposuction for men is requested more for the love handles, abdomen and chest.
Liposuction for men sculpts the body by removing areas of fat unresponsive to diet or exercise. If a man spends time in the gym and eating well, yet cannot achieve a contoured mid-section, Dr. Agha can provide the look of fit abs through liposuction.
The same is true of men who have gynecomastia, enlarged breasts due to genetic, hormonal or other reasons. A less prominent chest can be achieved through reduction of fat on the chest area by liposuction of chest and breasts. No longer does the man have to feel embarrassed or self-conscious at the pool, on the beach, or in other situations when men typically enjoy warm weather without a shirt.
Regardless of which area is requested more by men or women, either sex can benefit from liposuction on any area of the body where it is deemed appropriate by a board certified plastic surgeon.
Am I a good candidate for liposuction?
A good candidate for liposuction is one with realistic expectations of the plastic surgery’s outcome. Men of average or slightly above average weight are best suited for liposuction. Liposuction for men provides the best results on men with firm, elastic skin. Of course, liposuction is safest on those who are in good health and do not smoke.
Meeting with Dr. Siamak Agha for a consultation is the first step for scheduling your liposuction.
What should I expect of my consultation for liposuction for men?
During your initial consultation for liposuction with Dr. Siamak Agha at Plastic Surgery Body Contouring Center, be honest about goals for your body. Dr. Agha can better help you reach those goals if he is clear about what you truly want from liposuction.

He also will give you instructions to prepare for your liposuction, in regard to diet, alcohol and vitamin intake.
If you have allergies or take medications, you need to advise Dr. Agha of these. Doing so will help us keep you safe during liposuction and as part of your recovery.
