Men worry about cosmetic changes to their faces and bodies just like women, which is why they too often seek help restoring a more youthful complexion or trimming their body shape. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction was the fourth most popular plastic surgery for men in 2020. Nearly 23,000 men eliminated stubborn fat with the procedure. 

Dr. Arnold Breitbart is double board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He has received multiple awards for his dedication to patients and was named among the Top Plastic Surgeons in Long Island for 15 consecutive years. Dr. Breitbart offers advanced techniques for male liposuction, including SmartLipo Triplex®.

Abdominal Liposuction 

Both sexes struggle to tone the abdominal region, one of the most troublesome areas treated with liposuction. Diet and exercise can only get you so far in toning your abdominal muscles and reducing fat pockets. Most men seeking fat removal do so with the goal being to achieve a more chiseled abdominal physique with muscle definition. 

Liposuction In the “Love Handles” 

The flanks, or “love handles,” are located on the sides of your abdomen and lower back (oblique area) and tend to accumulate fat more than other areas. Fat deposits tend to develop in the obliques with age and weight gain and often stubbornly persist despite diet and exercise. Liposuction is often needed to eliminate fat cells from the flanks, even for men at their goal weight. 

Neck Liposuction 

Many men experience a muddled or undefined jawline due to fat accumulation in the submental area (under the chin). Dr. Breitbart often performs neck liposuction for men who want to improve their facial profile and have a stronger chin and defined jawline. Neck liposuction can make you appear younger and more fit by removing submental fat. 

Male Liposuction With Dr. Breitbart 

Dr. Breitbart offers SmartLipo Triplex™. This new liposuction technology incorporates a laser to liquefy the fat for easier removal with a cannula. The heat from the laser energy stimulates the body’s natural healing response to tighten the skin in the treated area. SmartLipo Triplex™ reduces surgical time and leaves patients with less bruising and swelling than traditional tumescent liposuction. Men are often able to return to work a day or two after the procedure.

While the abdomen, flanks and neck are the most popular body areas for male liposuction, this versatile procedure can remove unwanted fat from most body areas.
