About Liposuction for Men
Medically reviewed by The Harley Medical Group Clinical Governance Board, Chaired by Simon Smith (Medical Director & Consultant Surgeon) on 5th March 2020.
For a lot of men, losing weight, toning up and achieving the figure they want requires a combination of healthy eating and regular exercise, but some can be left with stubborn pockets of fat that no amount of exercise or dieting can shift. Male Liposuction surgery, also known as fat removal surgery, is designed to help remove these areas of fat and reshape particular areas of the body – it is not designed to be a quick weight loss tool. Typical problem areas that can be treated with liposuction surgery include*:
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Stomach (or Abdomen)
However, liposuction surgery can be performed on any area of the body and the technique is often used as part of other cosmetic surgery procedures such as the male tummy tuck and male chest reduction.
At The Harley Medical Group we always aim to ensure that our patients get the right procedure for them which is why we offer traditional Liposuction; Vaser Liposuction and Non-Surgical Liposuction / Fat Reduction.
All types of Liposuction are available at our 19 clinics across the UK, including Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, Leeds and Cardiff.

Facts about male liposuction*
- Liposuction is the fastest growing procedure for men in the UK, in fact 25% of Liposuction operations are performed on men.
- We offer Liposuction to most areas of the body, commonly the abdomen, flanks ('love handles'), chest and double chin.
- Recovery times are quick and you can resume normal activities after a couple of weeks
- Liposuction is effective, it actually removes the fat cells from the specific area.
- Your BMI will help our Nurse Counsellors assess your suitability.
- This procedure isn't suitable for very overweight patients.
You will need to book in for a consultation where a nurse will assess your BMI (body mass index) to ensure the procedure is suitable for you. If you are very overweight it is likely that you will not be suitable for liposuction as there are physical limits to the amount of fat that can safely be removed from the body. Liposuction is a procedure best suited for body sculpting rather than weight loss.
The procedure for male liposuction surgery
- The operation is performed under a general anaesthetic, or local anaesthetic with sedation often as a day case.
- The procedure can take between 1-2 hours.
- A very small incision is made to remove extract the fat and this is closed with a stitch or dissolvable suture.
