Male Liposuction

At Me Clinic we understand MEN.

We understand why men consider Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery and the results and outcomes they want to achieve. We understand that men prefer a confidential and private environment to discuss their surgical requirements.

We provide such a discreet and understanding environment. We understand with our experience that men have different problem areas than women and that is why we have a different approach to Cosmetic Surgery for men.

Women tend to carry their excess fat in their buttocks, stomachs, thighs and hips. Men however, carry excess fat in their chests (Gynaecomastia | Man Boobs), Waist Line (Love Handles), stomachs (the dreaded Gut) and even on the face and chins (double or triple chin effect). One of our most common procedures for men is Gynaecomastia to treat Man Boobs. This is a relatively a straightforward procedure and recovery process.

We have over 30 years of Cosmetic Surgery experience. We first performed Liposuction in the early 1980's and have performed many thousands of Liposuction procedures for men with amazing results.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a procedure where fat cells are extracted from problem areas of the body to decrease the volume and size of those areas.

Liposculpture is a refined form of liposuction for "body sculpting" of areas with excess fat in order to achieve more shape and contour.

We have over 30 years of Cosmetic Surgery experience, and we were one of the first clinics to perform Liposuction in Australia in the early 1980's. We have performed over 10,000 Liposuction procedures and thousands of other Cosmetic Surgery procedures.

 

How does Liposuction work?

The Liposuction techniques used by our Surgeons results in  a relatively painless solution to treat these problem areas.

We most commonly use the Tumescent Liposuction technique, which is a procedure performed in a short period of time that offers a speedy recovery with minimal discomfort and bruising.

Diluted local anaesthetic and adrenalin are infused into the patient's problem fatty area, which causes numbness and minimises patient discomfort. A small incision is made in the problem area and the unwanted fat cells are extracted under vacuum through this incision with a small suction tube to decrease the size while our Surgeons sculpt and shape the body. This results in a relatively painless and easy removal of the unwanted fat cells.

Our Surgeons also use other Liposuction techniques:

  • Advanced Vaser Hi Definition Liposculpture allows a more precise extraction of fat cells by an ultrasound device that melts the fat without affecting vital tissues resulting in less discomfort and quicker recovery times for patients.
  • Laser Lipolysis utilises Laser light to heat and melt fat and contract collagen fibres resulting in tighter skin and a smoother result.
  • Mega Liposuction involves the withdrawal of large volumes of fat at the one time for patients who are suited for this procedure.

Our Surgeons are constantly researching and developing better and more effective Liposuction techniques.

Can fat cells return to the areas that have been treated?

It seems that after puberty we do not create new fat cells. When you gain weight, you expand the fat cells you have. Liposuction decreases the fat cells to improve your body's contour. Should you gain weight after liposuction, it goes to the fat cells that are remaining in your body. The localised fatty deposits that existed prior to liposuction are unlikely to balloon up out of proportion to the surrounding areas.

What should you expect after Liposuction surgery?

After your procedure you may feel drowsy from the anaesthetic. It is important to have someone drive you home and stay overnight. On this evening we recommend you rest. You will be given medication to take to prevent swelling and infection.

You are provided with an after hours direct number to our Melbourne Liposuction clinic in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about. The next day or within a few days you must come back to the Clinic for your first post-operative check.

You may experience some discomfort and stiffness initially (a little like having done a strenuous gym workout), but this will gradually disappear. The puffiness, tenderness and bruising (if any) of the treated area will generally disappear in 1 to 2 weeks. Most patients tolerate the discomfort without the need for pain medication. However, if you feel discomfort for a few days this is usually well managed by simple pain medications.

You will be required to wear a compression garment for at least 4 weeks (and up to 6 weeks for optimum benefit) after your procedure. Your Surgeon and Nurses will supply this garment to you. They are made out of a strong lycra type material and are designed to hide under your clothing so no one need know you are wearing them.

Following the first day we recommend you walk for at least 30 minutes each day and otherwise continue with your normally activities. If you should go on a long car or plane trip, you must walk for at least 5 minutes every hour during the trip. You can return to non-strenuous work within 2 days. However you should wait at least 10 days before attempting more intense activity and if any discomfort is experienced with any activity it should be discontinued.

How Much Does it Cost?

As every patient we see has different requirements, it is difficult to provide standardised pricing as each procedure is tailored for each individual patient's situation. As a guide, prices for Liposuction start from $3,160 for one area.

During your consultation your Me Clinic Surgeon will discuss with you the best options for you. You are then provided with a quote so you know exactly what is involved in your procedure and what it will cost.

Our philosophy is simple. We want you to be fully informed, and we want you to understand all your options and have one accurate price quoted once. Consultation fees may apply.

There is no need for you to obtain a referral from your own doctor to see one of our Surgeons. Generally we are able to book you in to see one of our Surgeons in 7 to 14 days.
