Male Liposuction in Northern Virginia

Body fat can be stubborn. It does not care how diligently you follow a diet plan or how many push-ups and crunches you do. Why won’t those fat pockets budge? All of us are genetically programmed to store fat in certain areas — usually the belly, love handles, chest, back, or chin and neck. The older you get, the harder it becomes to reduce fat in these trouble spots and achieve the classic V-shaped torso.

Instead of cursing genetics, why not get the upper hand on them? Liposuction can remove excess fat cells from specific areas of your body, helping you gain a slimmer, firmer physique and restore your self-confidence. Liposuction can also be an excellent option to treat gynecomastia. Dr. Eric Desman has years of experience with male liposuction in Northern Virginia and Alexandria and specializes in advanced techniques designed to maximize safety and results.

Liposuction is the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure performed on men in America today because it is a safe and effective way to sculpt a slimmer, more masculine body contour. Ideal candidates have firm skin and are of normal weight, but have stubborn, diet- and exercise-resistant pockets of fat that they want to put behind them. During male liposuction, Dr. Desman most often removes fat deposits from the neck, belly, and/or love handles.

Rediscover Your Motivation with Male Liposuction

If you eat a balanced diet, stick to a consistent workout schedule, and still have trouble getting your desired results, you might get discouraged and abandon your goals. It can be incredibly frustrating to do everything right, only to realize the toned body of your dreams is still eluding you.

Stubborn body fat that defies your efforts to shape and tone is usually hereditary. The good news is, you probably have defined pecs and washboard abs hiding under that layer of flab, thanks to your diligent training. Male liposuction can help reveal the results of all your hard work and dedication.

Though Dr. Desman will ask you to refrain from strenuous exercise for a couple of weeks after your Northern Virginia or Alexandria liposuction procedure, once you have healed, your new contours will probably be enough to motivate you to pursue a healthy diet and fitness regimen.

Male Liposuction Can Improve Your Self-Esteem

Persistent trouble spots like love handles or male breasts can be demoralizing. Instead of focusing on intimate time with your partner, you can’t stop hearing the inner monologue telling you to suck in your stomach or hide under the covers.

Thankfully, male liposuction surgery can restore your confidence and free you to become your happiest, healthiest self. Our Alexandria and Northern Virginia patients report skyrocketing self-esteem after they have fully recovered from their surgery and can show off the results of their male liposuction.

How Does Male Liposuction Work?

Liposuction for men uses powerful suction to remove stubborn fat deposits. During the procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted through a tiny incision made in your skin. Your fat is then suctioned out through this tube while Dr. Desman moves the tube around underneath the skin to target specific fat deposits. Dr. Desman uses SAFELipo during his procedures, which is another reason to consider seeking his services.

Neck Area

Fat deposits in the neck are suctioned through a small incision made underneath your chin and/or behind your ear. The pad of fat beneath your chin can be removed and, because some adhesions form, there may be the added benefit of your skin tightening in this particular area.

Hips and Abdomen

To remove the fat deposits in these areas, incisions are placed in several locations around the area to allow for a crisscross pattern of suctioning. The incisions are very small and will be difficult to see once they have healed.

Dr. Desman understands the right approach for each region and will maximize the impact of male liposuction for an Alexandria or Northern Virginia patient.

Frequently Asked Questions

The most qualified people to receive liposuction are healthy, non-smoking individuals with good skin elasticity who are already at or near their target body weight, but who have diet- and exercise-resistant deposits of body fat. If you are overweight, Dr. Desman recommends delaying the procedure until you have reached your ideal weight

It’s essential to note the distinction between liposuction and a weight-loss procedure such as gastric bypass, which is designed to help obese people shed pounds from all over their bodies. Instead, when performing your male liposuction surgery, Dr. Desman will remove just enough fat to achieve a proportional, natural-looking result.

Although there are some limits to the amount of fat you can get removed, Dr. Desman will work with you before your surgery to help you determine potential areas for sculpting and what you can realistically expect to improve. The best liposuction results occur in body areas where there is reasonable muscle tone, where skin has good elastic quality and where fat is not excessive.

Though liposuction for men is a safe procedure, there are risks and potential complications associated with any surgery, including infection or numbness that can slow the healing process. By choosing a skilled, board-certified liposuction expert such as Dr. Desman to perform your procedure, you will greatly reduce your chances of having any risks and increase the chances of enjoying excellent results.

As you recover from getting male liposuction, daily light walks at a moderate pace can help speed the healing process. Most patients can return to their regular exercise routine within three to four weeks of their operation.

Most liposuction patients will begin to see results within the first month or two of getting the procedure. Final results may take up to a year to reveal themselves, as the swelling resolves and the skin bounces back from surgery.

The goal of male liposuction is to permanently improve the contours of your body. Therefore, if you gain weight, your new proportions should remain the same, though your contours will be less visible. If you lose the weight again, your body contours should go back to looking the way they did after your initial operation.

Technically speaking, Dr. Desman can perform liposuction on any man over the age of 18 who meets all the physical criteria. However, skin elasticity plays a vital role in maximizing results. Because the skin’s elasticity weakens as we age, Dr. Desman may recommend a different procedure if he feels your skin is not resilient enough to adjust to smaller contours.

Yes, we will send you home soon after your surgery. However, make sure you have arranged to have a friend or family member drive you. We suggest you don’t drive for the first 24 hours after surgery, and that you ask someone you trust to stay with you for the first several hours after surgery.

Dr. Desman makes tiny incisions during male liposuction and takes great care to place them in unobtrusive areas, so they remain discreet and heal with minimal risk of scarring.

The first step in your process is to contact the Virginia Center for Plastic Surgery to schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Desman. As a liposuction expert, he will thoroughly analyze where the fat pockets have accumulated on your body and answer any questions you have, as well as what to expect from the procedure.

Since male liposuction at VCPS is a highly customized procedure, Dr. Desman will need to meet with you to discuss your concerns and give you a more accurate price estimate. During your consultation, you can also learn more about our convenient financing options.

Yes! If you have multiple aesthetic goals, you might want to think about adding complementary surgeries to your liposuction. Procedures like a facelift or rhinoplasty will augment your results and save you time with only one recovery period necessary. You could also consider our range of non-surgical procedures for men, including Botox® and dermal fillers.
