How Liposuction Works for Men

Women aren’t the only ones who care about their appearance. As you age, you might have noticed you’ve gained fat in areas you’d wish you didn’t. Men see weight gain often around their stomachs. While this is normal, especially for men over 40, it also comes with increased health risks of developing Type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

While dieting and exercise can help you slim down, sometimes it’s not enough to get the lean physique you want. Liposuction is a dramatic way to shed weight and reduce your risk of life-threatening diseases. As cosmetic procedures gain more popularity, men are undergoing liposuction today more than ever. 

At L.A. Viñas Plastic Surgery, located in Florida, we provide liposuction for men who want to revamp their look and up their sex appeal.

Aging & hormones in men

While aging women usually experience weight gain in their hips and thighs, men see it around their stomachs. After the age of 40, men’s testosterone levels plummet, resulting in fat accumulation in their midsection. Men also experience a decline in muscle mass of about a pound a year, in addition to reduced metabolism.

Has your self-esteem declined due to your weight gain? Instead of just accepting it, you can do something about it. Liposuction has helped many men boost their confidence and improve their self-image.

How it works

Your body is incredible and helps you perform nearly every task throughout the day. However, weight gain and the effects of aging can cause many men to develop a poor body image. For stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise, liposuction is a great alternative to sculpt and tone your body like never before. 

Liposuction is the second most popular cosmetic treatment in the United States, with 258,558 procedures performed in 2017. Luis Viñas, MD, is a renowned surgeon recognized for his impressive liposuction results with minimal recovery time. 

The goal of liposuction is to remove unwanted fat in areas like:

Using small tubes, Dr. Viñas permanently removes fat from your body to define a more desirable, contoured appearance. Over the next few weeks as you heal, your skin molds to its new, more chiseled shape.

What treatment is like

Dr. Viñas performs liposuction as an outpatient surgery. When you come in for your appointment, Dr. Viñas first addresses any questions or concerns you have. To start the procedure, you will be given local, regional, or general anesthesia to keep you comfortable. 

Next, Dr. Viñas administers a saline solution under your skin to help loosen the fat. He uses a tube to suction the fat from your body. Dr. Viñas monitors your vitals throughout the procedure to make sure everything is going smoothly.

The whole procedure takes 1-4 hours. Once it’s completed, you will complete a short recovery in the hospital monitored by medical staff before you are discharged. 


One of the most common questions patients interested in liposuction ask is, “What are the results like?” Depending on the amount of fat you’re having removed, the results will differ from person to person. Liposuction is one of the most dramatic ways to slim down, offering far better results than CoolSculpting and WarmSculpting. 

Liposuction can remove up to 10 pounds of fat cells during a procedure. However, you might feel bloated the first week or two because of the natural swelling from the procedure. 

The bulk of the swelling generally subsides in seven days with some patients experiencing a mild degree for longer. Most patients agree that the results are entirely worth the wait — you can expect to experience a slimmer, mostly toned body in 1-3 months.
