Liposuction for Men Procedure
Losing weight can be challenging and time-consuming for many men, making it all the more frustrating when you meet your weight loss goals but still do not have the defined contours you wanted.
When you finally reach your goal weight, you want your results to reflect your hard work. Male liposuction is beneficial for men with stubborn fat deposits that hinder their body contours.
Liposuction is a procedure that removes excess fat from specific body areas to help patients achieve their ideal results. Dr. Hadeed offers liposuction for men who are looking to tone their physique.

Have Concerns About Male Liposuction?
What Is Liposuction Recovery Like?
You will be given a compression garment to wear immediately after your procedure that will help reduce swelling. You may experience some bruising and swelling on and around the treatment areas. This is normal and should subside in a few weeks. Over-the-counter or prescription pain medication can be taken as needed. Patients can typically return to work within one to two weeks.
Will Liposuction Leave Scars
Since small incisions are made, scarring is minimal. Dr. Hadeed will work to place these incisions in inconspicuous locations. Even if you do experience noticeable scarring, scars will likely fade over time.
How Much Is Liposuction?
Male liposuction cost varies between patients depending on the number of treatment areas and the amount of correction needed. Liposuction cost also depends on surgeon fees, anesthesia fees, and the procedure’s location. You will receive a cost estimate during your consultation with Dr. Hadeed.
When Will I See My Liposuction Results?
You will likely start to notice your liposuction results immediately. However, full results will be visible as soon as you are fully healed and swelling subsides.
