Male Liposuction in Los Angeles
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 Los Angeles, CA 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 to do for them, and to decide which liposuction technique is best his male patients.
Before patients are permitted to undergo liposuction, their candidacy must first be determined by a qualified plastic surgeon. The best candidate is someone who is in excellent health, is within 25 pounds of his or her ideal body weight, and has deposits of fat that have not responded to diet or exercise. over the age of 18 who meet the necessary health qualifications may be great candidates for liposuction.
Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and it cannot eliminate stretch marks and cellulite from the skin. The treatment can only remove small, localized concentrations of fat. In most cases, ten pounds of fat or less will be removed from the treated area. The ideal liposuction candidate is already close to or at a healthy weight but is interested in subtle body contouring. Dr. Steinbrech’s goal is to provide the best liposuction results for male patients in Los Angeles.
Liposuction Procedure for Men in Los Angeles
The liposuction procedure for men in Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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.
During your liposuction recovery, a compression garment or elastic bandages may cover treatment areas once your procedure is completed. These help to control swelling and compress the skin to your new body contours.
In addition, small temporary drains may be placed in existing incisions beneath the skin to remove any excess blood or fluid.
You will be given specific instructions that may include:
- How to care for the surgical site and drains
- Medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection
- Specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health
- When to follow up with your plastic surgeon
Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon specific questions about what you can expect during your individual recovery period:
- Where will I be taken after my surgery is complete?
- What medication will I be given or prescribed after surgery?
- Will I have dressings/bandages after surgery?
- How long will I wear the compression garment?
- Are stitches removed? When?
- When can I resume normal activity and exercise?
- When do I return for follow-up care?
It may take several months for the swelling to fully dissipate. As it does, your new contours and enhanced self-image should continue to develop.

Results of liposuction are visible immediately and improvement often continues as swelling subsides during the first three months for male patients in LA after their surgery.
