Your Recovery & Results

Many men struggle with achieving the desired amount of muscle definition through the abdomen, or notice that the appearance of love handles hasn’t been sufficiently reduced in response to diet or exercise. Liposuction offers a way to permanently remove isolated fatty deposits to create a slimmer, more well-defined physique.

Known as one of the best plastic surgeons in the Bethesda-Chevy Chase metro area, Dr. Stephen Kay has helped thousands of men from Washington D.C. and beyond feel more confident about their body with the help of liposuction. In addition to liposuction for men, Dr. Kay also offers a full range of cosmetic surgery procedures for face and body in both men and women.

Is Male Liposuction Right for You?

Men who are considering liposuction should already be at or near a healthy target weight, and in good physical and mental health overall. It’s also important to have realistic expectations about your results, as liposuction is intended for enhancing existing contours rather than achieving weight loss.

Liposuction in men can:

  • Accentuate muscle definition in the stomach, flanks, back and thighs
  • Improve the appearance of “man boobs” as part of male breast reduction
  • Eliminate a double chin
  • Enhance your natural build
  • Help you look sleeker, slimmer and more toned
  • Boost self-confidence and improve your self-image

Male Liposuction Costs

The costs associated with liposuction in men will vary depending on which type of liposuction Dr. Kay performs as well as the size of the treatment area. Total costs will include Dr. Kay’s surgical fee as well as the fees associated with anesthesia and the surgical facility, along with any necessary follow-up appointments. Dr. Kay and his staff are happy to explain all the available options for cosmetic surgery financing that can help make your liposuction as affordable as possible.

What to Expect

During your consultation, Dr. Kay will talk with you about your goals for liposuction, as well as go into more detail about your procedure and recovery. It’s important to understand the benefits and limitations of liposuction prior to surgery. For example, while lipo can accentuate your natural shape, men who have pronounced skin laxity or have recently undergone significant weight loss may need to consider body contouring surgeries that address excess skin, such as a tummy tuck, rather than opting for liposuction.

Dr. Kay offers two types of liposuction for men from his practice:

  • During tumescent liposuction, Dr. Kay injects a saline solution into the treatment area. This diluted combination of local anesthesia, vasoconstrictor and sterile saltwater fills the soft fatty tissue under the skin, giving Dr. Kay the ability to more easily remove fat cells. At the same time, the tumescent fluid helps control bleeding while minimizing discomfort. The fat cells are removed using a hollow tube connected to a vacuum-like machine.
  • Ultrasonic assisted liposuction (UAL) uses ultrasonic waves to liquefy fat prior to removal from the body. Dr. Kay uses a special cannula that causes vibrations to rupture fat cell walls for easier withdrawal via suction. UAL is particularly beneficial in male patients due to the increased density of accumulated fat in male patients. Additionally, since UAL is tissue-specific, this type of lipo is ideal for treating fatty deposits in the more muscular and fibrous male back and chest, both of which are traditionally challenging areas to sculpt effectively with tumescent liposuction.

Your Recovery & Results

Today’s advanced liposuction techniques mean that men can enjoy a shorter recovery period after their surgery, often returning to work and normal daily routine within several days. Dr. Kay may recommend that you wear a special compression garment after your liposuction in order to help swelling dissipate more quickly and support your new contours.

After your liposuction, you should see an immediate change in the treated area, even if there is some swelling present initially. Fatty deposits that were previously resistant to diet or exercise should be less pronounced or gone entirely, and muscle definition should be more visible in the treated area. Overall, you should look trimmer, slimmer and more built, with more clearly defined masculine lines.
