Is male liposuction right for me?
If you think of this procedure as a form of body sculpting rather than weight loss, it will give you a better idea of what to expect. Localised areas of fat can be removed, perfect for those who have recently lost a lot of weight, but find individual fat pockets that seem to remain regardless of lifestyle changes.
Liposuction is not a weight-loss tool, but an important part of a broader weight loss therapy program. Performed as day surgery, you can combine the procedure with another, such as a tummy tuck for even more advanced results.
How does it Works
If you are considering male liposuction, a consultation with Dr Arianayagamis the first step to discuss your goals and expectations.
You will be asked a variety of questions to assess your current health situation, medications, allergies, past medical treatments.
We will discuss the options available and have a second consultation a week or two later to allow time for more questions. During this time you can also speak to past-patients to hear about their experiences with the procedure first-hand.
Surgery will take place, often anywhere between 1 - 3 hours depending on how much fat you are having removed.
Your recovery period will require avoidance of strenuous activities for three months, with a gradual build up of exercise after 6 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions
There will be pain during recovery but it will be manageable with medication. Some swelling will also be present which will resolve over the following weeks.
You can walk on the day of surgery but should limit your movements and take time off work for about a week. It is important to avoid strenuous activities for at least three weeks, and a post-operative compression garment must be worn.
The fat cells removed during the procedure are gone for good. If you re-gain weight, the fat will not be distributed to the liposuctioned zones; however, remaining fat cells may expand, so a healthy lifestyle should be maintained for the best results.
The incisions made during liposuction are inconspicuous and should be difficult to see once they fade.
As with all surgical procedures, risks such as post-operative bleeding, allergic reactions, infection, deep vein thrombosis, and hematoma may be present. Reassessment of contour is done at 6 months to see if any revision surgery is required.
There is no specific age requirement; however, your health status will determine your suitability for the procedure. It is preferable that you are in the normal to slightly overweight BMI range as liposuction is not a form of weight loss.
