Get Your Body Back! Dr. Cruise Explains Liposuction for Men!

If as you approach this Labor Day Holiday weekend, you may find that some of your “go-to” clothing might not fit quite the same as they did over the summer. Whether you aren’t as active as you were a year ago or maybe you found that hanging with your friends and testing out new brews was more fun than heading to the gym. Or maybe you sustained an injury and you had to wait for your recovery. No matter what the reason, the weight creeps up fast. And if you are wondering you can do about the spare tire to get rid of it quickly, while working out and watching your calories counts, there are some “fixes” that only an MD can provide! Here’s a great Q&A piece with Dr. Joseph Cruise, a noted plastic surgeon in Orange County, California!


As men age, their metabolism slows down and they may become less active and less disciplined with their diet. The combination of these factors can result in fat accumulation, especially in the abdomen and flanks. The gold-standard for fat removal is the plastic surgery procedure,  liposuction. Dr. Joseph Cruise of Cruise Plastic Surgery can help those who want to improve their physique.

Is there a treatment for men that you suggest that can improve their physique?

Dr. J. Cruise:

Liposuction can be beneficial for men wanting to look more lean, toned and sculpted. Liposuction can more aggressively target excess fat compared to non-invasive fat removal treatments being marketed. Through a tiny incision, a small tube called a cannula is inserted to loosen fat beneath the skin. It is then suctioned out. This procedure is very effective for getting rid of love handles. It can eliminate the stubborn fat in the flanks to create a fitter shape. will not only remove unwanted fat, but it will help sculpt the body for an improved shape. There are various types of liposuction treatments available ranging from the traditional tumescent liposuction, ultrasound assisted, laser assisted, and suction assisted. An evaluation by a board-certified plastic surgeon is necessary to determine if you are a candidate for liposuction. Some men have excess fat and skin in the abdomen which could require liposuction to be paired with a tummy tuck. While liposuction can promote some skin tightening, it may not be enough for patients with significant skin laxity.



As a liposuction specialist who has performed hundreds of these surgeries over the years, I routinely perform tumescent liposuction which has a proven track record of being the safest and most effective form of fat removal surgery. The word tumescent refers to anything that is swollen and firm. With tumescent liposuction, a large amount of diluted solution consisting of lidocaine and epinephrine is injected into the fat beneath the skin, causing the area to become swollen and firm. After the solution is injected, I then insert the suction cannula and suction out the fat in a safe, precise manner. This tumescent process eliminates some of the unpleasant side effects associated with older forms of liposuction. There is less pain after surgery, less bleeding, swelling, and contour irregularities.

Safety is always a priority when performing any surgical procedure. With liposuction, it is only safe to remove a specified amount of fat in one surgery. For men with fat that will exceed this limit, I may recommend weight loss prior to surgery.


How long is recovery time?

Dr. J. Cruise:

The recovery period can last 1 to 2 weeks. Full recovery from swelling and bruising is 1 to 6 months or more. With the use of the tumescent technique or UAL patients will experience less pain, bruising and swelling. For men with non-physical jobs, they can return to work within a few days if they feel up to it. Patients may experience an intermittent increase in swelling the more active they are during the recovery period. This is a sign to take it easy and allow your body some rest.


How much does it cost?

Dr. J. Cruise:

On average, the cost of liposuction ranges from $3,500 to $4,500 for the first area, and generally increases by $1,500 to $2,500 for each additional area. This price range includes standard fees for the surgeon, anesthesiology, surgical facility and equipment, and follow-up office visits. The cost of liposuction varies due to the amount of fat that you would like removed, the area of the procedure, whether it is combined with other cosmetic surgeries, and other factors.


Any additional information you would like to add?

Dr. J. Cruise:

As with all cosmetic procedures, it is recommended you meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in liposuction, to determine if you are a candidate.
