How Much Does Male Liposuction Cost?

How Much Does a Male Liposuction Cost?

The cost of a male liposuction procedure varies according to how much fat the patient would like to remove from the body. Typically, pricing for a large zone starts at $6,999. This cost includes a male fat removal surgery procedure, as well as treatment involving the use of energy-assisted lipo devices such as VASERLipo, SmartLipo, and BodyTite. It is also possible for the Toronto Plastic Surgeons to perform a male liposuction procedure on 3-4 zones for as low as $9,999 and up.

How Long Does it Take to Recover From a Male Liposuction?

A male liposuction procedure boasts a quick recovery period, particularly when using energy-assisted devices such as SmartLipo, BodyTite, and VASERLipo. These devices are all associated with a quicker recovery period and better skin contraction and contour than traditional liposuction. Still, depending on how many zones are being treated, it is recommended that patients take 5-10 days to recover. Also, please note that men will be required to wear a post-liposuction garment following their procedure. 

How Long Does a Male Liposuction Take?

Male liposuction procedures take approximately 60 minutes per zone. In most cases, multiple zones are treated.

What is a Male Liposuction?

Sometimes, diet and exercise are simply not enough to achieve the physical results you’d like. Fortunately, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons have developed modern, innovative liposuction techniques that reduce the risk of bruising, swelling, and discomfort. Through the use of energy-assisted devices, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons can heat, liquefy, and coagulate unwanted fat, producing lasting and natural-looking results in the process.

With regards to male liposuction procedures, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons use internal devices like BodyTite (radiofrequency energy), SmartLipo (laser energy) and/or Vaser lipo (ultrasound energy) to gently remove any excess fat. Common locations for a male liposuction procedure include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, hips, and arms.

Who is a Male Liposuction Candidate?

While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, proper physical health and realistic expectations can make the recovery process more seamless. A candidate for a male liposuction procedure is a man who would:

  • Like to remove localized areas of excess fat
  • Achieve their ideal shape and contour
  • Have struggled with weight loss despite diet and exercise
  • Are approaching their goal weight

Please note that, if a patient is excessively overweight, they may not be good candidates for a male liposuction procedure with the Toronto Plastic Surgeons. Finally, male liposuction procedures are not recommended for patients with uncontrolled illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity or hypertension.

We invite all those interested in this procedure to reach out to Toronto Plastic Surgeons for a consultation. However, if you do not feel that this is right for you, please visit our non-surgical procedure page.

Benefits of Male Liposuction

Confidence Boost

By removing excess fat and transforming a patient’s physical appearance, a male liposuction procedure will boost self-confidence and self-worth.

Better Mobility

At its core, a male liposuction procedure is designed to improve a person’s shape. As such, patients will feel lighter, shapelier, and more agile after the procedure.

Improved Contours

By targeting localized fat pockets in the body that detract from contour, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons can significantly improve a patient’s overall body shape.

A Healthier Lifestyle

As it is not recommended that patients gain more than 5-10 pounds after their liposuction procedure, the procedure serves as a strong motivating factor to ensure that they adopt a healthier lifestyle.

Male Liposuction Risks

Like every surgery, a male liposuction procedure comes with a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted liposuction surgeon. The team at the Toronto Plastic Surgeons has years of experience performing male liposuction procedures. Significant complications are uncommon and, in the rare event they occur, are expertly managed.

  • Infections: Even though infections are rare, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons still take every precaution to ensure that the procedure is a smooth, seamless experience. Preventative antibiotics are provided.
  • Adverse Anesthesia Effects: In some cases, the anesthesia used in the surgery can have an adverse effect on the patient. For this reason, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons carefully review the medical history of every single patient that walks through their doors.
  • Nerve Damage: It is possible that a male liposuction procedure results in numbness or a change in skin sensation.
  • Contour Irregularities: Small asymmetries can exist after. In cases where patients do not obtain the results they were looking for, a follow-up procedure can be scheduled to ensure adequate body contour.

Different Types of Male Liposuction

Love Handle Liposuction

When it comes to liposuction procedures for men, no zone is treated more often than the love handles. Indeed, for men, excess and unwanted fat is commonly stored within the love handles. During a love handle liposuction, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons utilize the skin elasticity of the love handles to produce a newly contoured figure and a slimmer waist.

Abdomen Liposuction

Abdomen liposuction represents an ideal option for men who are seeking to reduce fat and repair loose skin in the abdominal area. This procedure involves removing excess fat and tightening muscles in the abdomen.

Male Liposuction Alternatives

CoolSculpting, Sculpsure, BodyFX, Vanquish and Evolve are non-invasive, non-surgical devices that can permanently and moderately reduce localized areas of fat.

How is a Male Liposuction Performed by the Toronto Plastic Surgeons?

All male liposuction procedures are performed within the comfort of the modern Toronto Plastic Surgeon Surgery suites. The surgery is entirely personalized and specifically designed by our expert team to match your desired results.

Prior to your surgery, a physician will administer anesthesia to ensure that the procedure is completely painless. Most male liposuction patients have the procedure performed very comfortably under local anesthesia, oral sedation, and laughing gas.

During the procedure, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will use energy-assisted technology to remove unwanted fat, thereby reducing bulges, tightening the skin, and improving the contour of the targeted areas.

How to Prepare for a Male Liposuction

To ensure a successful surgery, the doctor will advise that you follow certain preparations in the weeks leading up to your procedure date:

  • Smoking should be discontinued two weeks leading up to the procedure and two weeks after. Those who continue to smoke will have a longer recovery period and a greater likelihood of complications.
  • Two weeks before your procedure, patients must cease taking Aspirin or any medication that contains Aspirin.
  • Six hours prior to surgery, patients must stop consuming any food or drink. Small sips of water are permitted, however.
  • Avoid sun damage two weeks before surgery. This can be achieved by wearing sunscreen.

What to Expect After a Male Liposuction

Following your male liposuction procedure, the Toronto Plastic Surgeons will give you detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a seamless recovery. Please keep in mind that you will be required to wear a tight-fitting compression garment for several weeks, as its presence will reduce swelling and tighten the skin. Patients can expect weight loss, as well as a dramatic improvement in body shape.

Male Liposuction Recovery

After the surgery, patients are required to wear a fitted compression garment to reduce swelling. The garment must be worn for 22 hours a day for three weeks.

Day 1: Patients can generally return to light, sedentary work.

Day 3: Patients can return to more strenuous work.

Week 3: The garment can now be worn for only 12 hours a day.

Week 6: The garment can now be removed completely. In addition, patients may resume arduous physical activity.

Male Liposuction FAQ

How Painful is it to Get a Male Liposuction?

Due to the anesthesia administered during the procedure, the patient will not feel any pain during the surgery. While it is normal to experience some swelling and discomfort after the surgery, any irritation can be easily controlled with oral medication prescribed by the Toronto Plastic Surgeons.

At what age can you receive a Male Liposuction?

The Toronto Plastic Surgeons recommend that men only consider liposuction if they are over the age of 19. While there is no age limit to liposuction, the procedure is not recommended for elderly men due to the elasticity of their skin.
