Liposuction for Men in Oakland
If you are tired of your love handles or excess fat along your chin/neck area, lower abdomen, or chest, then you may be a candidate for male liposuction. It’s one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for men, and it can help get rid of unwanted pockets of localized fat.
Liposuction can majorly transform unsightly parts of your body by trimming you down and removing pesky fat that refuses to go away with diet or exercise. The result is a more toned, masculine body and a big boost to your self-confidence about how you look.
What is male liposuction?
Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure that sucks away deposits of stubborn fat. Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis, board-certified plastic surgeons in Oakland, can remove unwanted fat deposits from the most common areas such as:
- Love Handles (fat deposits above the belt line)
- Lower Abdomen
- Chest (this is also known as gynecomastia or male breast reduction)
The procedure is done under general or local anesthesia. Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis sculpt the body into the desired contour by removing the fat through cannulas. Cannulas are small tubes inserted through tiny, hard-to-spot incisions—usually less than ¼ inch long.
There are several different modalities used for liposuction:
- Standard Tumescent Liposuction
- Power Assisted Liposuction
- Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction
- Laser Assisted Liposuction
Liposuction is a technologically advanced procedure that gets great results. The modality that best suits your procedure will be determined at the time of your consultation.
*Here is a tip to tell if you are a candidate for liposuction of the abdomen. If the circumference around your abdomen (at the level of your belly button) is greater than half your height in inches, then the abdominal fat is probably behind your abdominal wall muscles and not accessible to being removed with liposuction. If this does not describe your abdomen, then you could be a likely candidate for liposuction.

How do Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis ensure best results in liposuction for men?
Male liposuction, like other liposuction procedures, usually gets optimal outcomes if you have achieved your body weight goals and are maintaining a stable body weight. Male liposuction also has better results if the skin tone is good.
It’s important to note that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, but is rather an effective way to sculpt your body once your desired weight is reached. Men who have lost a lot of weight may also benefit from a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, to remove any excess sagging skin caused by extreme weight loss.
After your body-changing procedure is done, regular exercise and a healthy diet are the only ways to maintain your new sculpted body.
