Liposuction for Men and Women: Understanding the differences

Stubborn body fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise is a concern for both men and women. Fortunately, liposuction surgery is rapidly gaining popularity as a safe and effective way to remove excess fat. When used in conjunction with a Fat Removal procedure is often associated with women, more and more men are turning to lipo surgery as a way to achieve a slimmer and more defined physique. However, there are some key differences between men and women that should be taken into consideration.

How Liposuction for Men and Women are different?

Body Shape

  • Men and women have different body shapes and proportions. Men tend to carry excess fat in the upper body, particularly around the abdomen and chest, while women tend to carry more fat in the hips, thighs, and buttocks. As a result, the liposuction procedure for men is often focused on the abdominal fat area, love handles, and chest (to treat gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts . In contrast, the procedure for women may focus on the hips, thighs, and buttocks.

Skin Thickness

    • Another key difference between men and women is skin thickness . Men typically have thicker skin than women, which can make it more difficult to achieve a smooth, even contour after liposuction. To address this liposuction for men may require more aggressive fat removal techniques, such as power assisted liposuction (PAL) or ultrasound assisted liposuction (UAL).

    Muscle Mass

      • Men tend to have more muscle mass than women, which can also impact the liposuction procedure. In some cases, liposuction may be combined with other procedures, such as abdominoplasty(tummy tuck) or pectoral implants, to achieve the desired results.
