Can Liposuction Be Tailored To Men?

In short, yes, liposuction at BEAUTY by BUFORD can be tailored to men. For a longer, more detailed answer, check out the rest of this blog!

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for men and women. By removing stubborn pockets of fat immune to diet and exercise with a cannula, liposuction eliminates frustration and increases confidence and satisfaction with one’s appearance.

It is important to recognize that liposuction is not a weight loss solution. Instead, it’s like the cherry on top of all your hard work in the gym and kitchen that can help erase fat that has overstayed its welcome.

How Does Male Liposuction Differ?

While the basics of liposuction remain the same for both men and women, there are two key differences in liposuction for men. First, men often aim to enhance muscle definition, creating sharper, more angular contours rather than the smoother, softer lines that might be desired in female liposuction. Common target areas for women include the arms, stomach, abdomen, waist, back, bra rolls, love handles, buttocks, hips, inner and outer thighs, knees, ankles, chest, neck, and chin. Men, however, usually seek liposuction for their back, chest, abs, and arms to create a more fit or masculine physique.* 

The other key difference in liposuction for men is the nature of the fat itself. Men often tend to have more fibrous and dense fat deposits than women, making removing the fat a little more difficult. This is why both men and women often receive both VASER liposuction in addition to MicroAire liposuction and Renuvion skin-tightening.  

*With this generalization in mind, we want to be explicitly clear that everybody’s needs and goals are different. Before creating a personalized treatment plan, Dr. Buford takes the time to get to know all of his patient’s needs, goals, body types, etc. Think of it as if you were planning to make pasta for a group of people. Everyone at the table might want pasta, but you have to take into account individual preferences, or you might end up with unhappy guests. In the same fashion, Dr. Buford can’t just repeat the same treatment plan over and over again; it won’t suit everyone!

The Liposuction Process 

Liposuction at BEAUTY by BUFORD is designed to be a stress-free and effective experience from start to finish.


The first step in the liposuction process at BEAUTY by BUFORD is a thorough consultation. You’ll discuss your goals and concerns with Dr. Buford during this initial meeting. He’ll evaluate the areas you want to target and your overall health, such as your hormonal levels and nutrition, to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. 

If he approves you for liposuction, he’ll go over what the process will look like for your unique situation. This is the perfect time to ask any questions about the surgery, recovery, and expected outcomes. 

We encourage you to be open-minded at your consultation because Dr. Buford might suggest other procedures, like gynecomastia, in addition to or in replacement of male liposuction. 

Overview of the procedure

On the day of the procedure, you can relax and be at ease. Dr. Buford is a liposuction expert, having literally performed thousands of cases over the years. 

After you receive some anesthetic, small incisions are made near the targeted areas. Then, using a combination of MicroAire’s vibrational technology and VASER’s ultrasound technology, Dr. Buford will withdraw the unwanted fat deposits with little to no risk to the surrounding tissue.  In addition, Renuvion skin-tightening technology is generally added to this to help shrink and tighten the overlying skin and provide an even more robust result.  

Recovery & results

After the procedure, you’ll be taken to a recovery area to be monitored for a short period. You’ll likely experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which is normal and should subside within a few weeks. Dr. Buford will provide detailed aftercare instructions, including temporarily avoiding strenuous activities, like exercise, and wearing compression garments to help reduce your swelling and support treated areas. 

Since Dr. Buford is one of the only plastic surgeons who also considers lifestyle factors (such as nutritional status) when determining your liposuction candidacy and recovery, you can feel confident that you’re getting a personalized treatment plan to help you look and feel great with sustainable results.
