Male liposuction is often an optimal body contouring solution for patients concerned with the appearance of certain areas that are difficult to target with routine diet and exercise. Men sometimes suffer from stubborn fat deposits on the chest, lower back, and abdomen. These areas can be sculpted using customized traditional liposuction techniques or with VASERlipo® to achieve a slimmer, more masculine physique. Dr. Madhukar G. Chhatre is a board-certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of experience who can provide liposuction treatment tailored to meet your unique needs and cosmetic goals.
Areas Male Liposuction Can Target
Liposuction, also known as lipoplasty surgery, is a popular body contouring procedure performed under sedation that uses small cannulas (tubes) to remove and smooth unwanted fat. Dr. Chhatre’s skill and knowledge of the subtle intricacies of the male form allow him to tailor liposuction to accentuate particular muscle groups for our male patients. In this way, patients can enjoy natural-looking results and a more masculine physique. Target areas that can enhanced during liposuction include:
- Chin and cheeks for a stronger jaw line
- Neck area to reduce the appearance of a double chin
- Chest to reduce the appearance of male breasts
- Abdomen for a flatter midsection
- “Love handles” or the lower back

Are You A Candidate?
Because liposuction is considered surgery and generally performed under anesthesia, it is important that you are in good overall health before undergoing this procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Chhatre will perform a detailed examination with careful review of your medical history to ensure that you are a good candidate. This procedure is not a weight-loss solution but should be considered the final phase in achieving a more toned and sculpted physique. To achieve the best results, patients should be nonsmokers and within 20 to 30 pounds of their ideal weight.
Liposuction Techniques For Men
At Summit Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we provide this service in a private, discreet, and spa-like atmosphere with two different types of techniques. Dr. Chhatre will use the best technique based on your cosmetic goals discussed during your consultation:
This technique uses ultrasound waves to break up fat cells in both small and large areas without disrupting healthy surrounding tissue. Once the fat cells are broken down, Dr. Chhatre will remove the unwanted tissue through a small tube. This minimally invasive technique can be completed in one treatment and produces a quicker recovery than traditional methods.
With this technique, Dr. Chhatre will insert a small tube through one or or more small incisions. After gently breaking down the fat cells, he will insert a suction tube to remove the unwanted fat. This technique is better suited for larger areas, such as the abdomen, and may require more than one treatment to achieve your desired results.
