Male Liposuction in NYC
Liposuction is a technique to help men shape and contour the body to give a more athletic, lean, and attractive physique. Dr. Steinbrech specializes in male liposuction in NYC and is proud to offer his patients his extensive experience and expertise. Liposuction is the single most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the U.S. today. Liposuction sculpts the body by removing unwanted fat from male patients that have not responded to diet and exercise programs.
Liposuction removes undesirable fat from the abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. One of the most common areas for liposuction for our male patients is the waist, also known as “love handles”. Liposuction not only offers the opportunity to slim and contour areas of the body, but it also ensures that these areas will not accumulate fatty deposits in the future.

Dr. Steinbrech knows that all male patients are different, both in their body shapes and in what they wish to achieve with liposuction. Dr. Steinbrech takes as much time as necessary during every pre-operative consultation to learn what each patient wants liposuction to do for them, and to decide which technique is best.
Liposuction procedure for men in New York
The liposuction procedure for men in New York begins with the injection of a solution composed of saline (salt water), 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, the doctor 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, the liposuction surgery for men may last from 1-5 hours in Dr. Steinbrech’s New York clinic.
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 return to work within a few days. Strenuous activity should be avoided for about a month.
Results of Liposuction
Results of liposuction are visible immediately and improvement often continues as swelling subsides during the first three months for male patients in NYC after their surgery.
Risks of Liposuction
Risks are uncommon for men when the liposuction is performed by a qualified surgeon. Nevertheless, they do occur, and may include the following:
- Delays in healing
- Fat clots or blood clots
- Fluid accumulation
- Perforation injury
- Lidocaine toxicity
- Unfavorable drug or anesthesia reactions
Irregularities in appearance are possible, such as asymmetric or “baggy” skin, numbness and pigmentation changes.
