Common Areas for Men to Get Lipo

There are a number of common areas for men to get lipo, including the abdomen, chest, and flanks. The male body frequently develops excess fat in these areas over time due to factors like the aging process and poor diet. To find out more about common areas for men to get lipo, Santa Monica patients choose the office of Dr. Ralph Massey.

At our office, Dr. Massey performs male liposuction without general anesthesia. Local anesthesia allows for a faster recovery process and a much lower chance of complications.


The midsection is a common trouble area for men. Having a spare tire creates an out-of-shape look, causing men to feel self-conscious. With liposuction, a spare tire can be effectively reduced, resulting in a flatter stomach.

By getting rid of subcutaneous fat, lipo can also reveal and emphasize your abdominal muscles. This can help you finally achieve that sculpted sixpack.


Love handles on the flanks and waist are usually very prominent. They stick out and hang over the top of your jeans, making you feel flabby. Liposuction can contour away those love handles, restoring a fitter look to the waist and hips.

Upper Back

Fat on the upper back can cover up your lats, hiding all the hard work you’ve been putting in at the gym. By removing upper-back fat, the latissimus dorsi muscles can be emphasized.

Lower Back

Over time, flab rolls start to form on the lower back. Nobody likes feeling out of shape because of fat rolls. Get rid of that lower-back fat with the help of liposuction. The thickness of the skin in this area makes it particularly ideal for lipo.


The aging process causes muscle tissue to disappear. This can make a major difference in the appearance of the male chest. Flab can also occur due to a number of lifestyle factors. In some cases, it can even create the look of man boobs. If you want to get rid of man boobs and achieve a more masculine chest with defined pectoral muscles, liposuction is an ideal option.


Excess fat in the area under the chin (the submental region) can give men a double chin. This can get in the way of an otherwise handsome facial profile. To contour away your double chin and jowls and give yourself a stronger jawline, come in for precise liposuction from Dr. Massey.


The thighs just seem to get bigger and bigger as the years go by. Male liposuction can be used on the inner and outer thighs to give them a more proportional appearance.

Upper Arms

If you’ve been working out your biceps and triceps but haven’t seen results, it might be due to upper-arm fat. You can sculpt and contour those upper arms with liposuction to show off bigger and stronger arm muscles.
