Liposuction With BodyBanking®
Male Liposuction With BodyBanking® in NYC
What is Male Liposuction?
Liposuction surgery for men contours the body and removes excess fat deposits, resulting in a more athletic, lean, and attractive physique. This procedure sculpts the body by removing unwanted fat from patients that have not responded to diet and exercise programs, particularly stubborn areas affected by age such as the abdomen, flanks and breast area. In a 2018 study, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed liposuction as one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for men in NYC and the U.S.
Liposuction is best performed by an experienced, board-certified professional. Referred to by Forbes as “the go-to surgeon for men,” Dr. Steinbrech specializes in liposuction at his NYC practice. As stated in his case study, he often uses liposuction in conjunction with other treatments to enhance his patients’ results. BodyBanking®, a process Dr. Steinbrech developed to perform a selective fat transfer, removes undesirable fat from one region and injects it into another that may be lacking. Male liposuction with BodyBanking® controls the density of fatty tissue, resulting in a more natural-looking physical improvement without the use of synthetic injectables. Dr. Steinbrech knows that all male patients are different, both in their body shapes and in what they wish to achieve with liposuction.

How Does Liposuction Work?
Male liposuction begins with the injection of a solution composed of saline, a local anesthetic, and a small amount of adrenaline to decrease bruising and bleeding. This is known as either the tumescent or super-wet technique, depending on the ratio of the fluid to the fatty tissue being removed.
Once this solution has been introduced into the area planned for liposuction treatment, Dr. Steinbrech proceeds with one of two different methods of liposuction currently approved by plastic surgeons: suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL) or ultrasonic-assisted lipectomy (UAL). In both methods, a tiny incision is made in a discreet place. In SAL, a cannula (small tube) is inserted and moved back and forth beneath the skin, breaking up the fat layer and suctioning it out. In UAL, ultrasonic energy is used to liquefy the fat before it is suctioned out with a cannula.
Depending on the amount of fat being removed, male liposuction surgery may take anywhere from 1 to 5 hours at Dr. Steinbrech’s NYC clinic.
Who is a Good Candidate for Liposuction?
Liposuction for men is typically best for adults nearing 25 to 30% of their ideal body weight. Patients with stubborn fat deposits that have not responded to diet programs are often the best candidates. Though liposuction offers dramatic, life-changing results, it is not a substitute for diet and exercise. Healthy patients with good skin elasticity and muscle tone will see the best results. It is advised to avoid surgery if you have any life-threatening medical conditions.
After liposuction, drainage tubes, compression garments, and antibiotics may be needed to facilitate the healing process for recovery. Male patients are encouraged to walk as soon as they are able, and many often return to work within a few days. Strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month. Results of liposuction are visible immediately and improvement often continues as swelling subsides during the first 3 months for male patients in NYC after their surgery.
