Male Flanks Liposuction

Love Handles

It may be an unfortunate name, but love handles are what everyone calls them and that is what men want to get rid of. Bulky male flanks around the waistline can appear unattractive. The presence of these unsightly bulges sitting above the belt line is a cause of concern to many men. Love handles, in the form of male flanks appears nonathletic. A sign of middle age. With modern low-cut trousers, it makes it even harder for men to hide bulging flanks. Male love handles are generally resistant to exercise and diet so the best way to banish love handles is liposuction.

At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we see male waistline, like all difficult to shift fat areas, to be an ideal target for liposuction with VASER. Like many areas treated with liposuction, there is not much diet and exercise can do to shift love handles and bulging male flanks. No number of abdominal crunches or trips to the gym make difference, they are just resistant to change. Liposuction can be an ideal solution. VASER liposuction is a reliable way of greatly reducing these fatty bulges that look so unflattering in the mirror in the morning.

Traditional surgical fat removal procedures are more about mechanical toing and froing suction of fatty tissue, indiscriminate to surrounding nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue, resulting in lengthy recovery and increased incidence of side effects. VASER liposuction energy only targets the breaking down of fat cells.

VASER For Male Flanks

VASER Lipo is an innovative body sculpting option that uses ultrasound to gently breakdown the fat before being removed. VASER ultrasound technology effortlessly emulsifies unwanted fat. Focused ultrasonic energy breaks down tough flank fibrous fat with minimal disruption to surrounding tissue. A selective process controlled by the ultrasound frequency. This selective process is critical to achieving smooth results and optimal recovery. Traditional surgical fat removal procedures are more about mechanical toing and froing suction of fatty tissue. Traditional rasping cannulas are indiscriminate to surrounding nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. They are invariably associated with lengthy recovery and increased incidence of side effects. On the other hand, VASER liposuction energy only targets and breaks down of fat cells before using a finesse cannula for precise removal.

Love Handles VASER Liposuction Procedure

VASER liposuction is a safe technique and considered the gold standard for removing fat around the midriff. The abdomen and enlarged male breasts, gynaecomastia are very popular liposuction areas for men. For those who want athletic definition the coveted HiDef liposuction of the abs is very much in demand.

During the love handles VASER procedure a tumescent mix of salt water and local anesthesia are mixed together. The fluid is injected into fatty tissue beneath the male flanks. It completely numbs the area. Our surgeon then targets the unwanted fat with VASER ultrasound energy. The focused ultrasound disrupts and liquefies fat lobules. It changes their consistency from form fat deposits to smoothie like texture.

This emulsification process makes removal of fat from the love handles minimally traumatic. The fat is gently suctioned out with a straw like tube called a cannula. Because the male flanks fat has been pre-liquefied, the area can skilfully be suctioned out while reshaping and contouring with precision and finesse. Patients are comfortable and awake during the procedure and many enjoy seeing their unwanted fat leaving their body. The procedure takes a couple of hours.

Male Flanks Bulge No More

Frequently the abdomen is treated at the same time as the male flanks. The whole spare-tyre area is reduced and reshaped. Regardless of the amount of fat in the male flanks and love handles, VASER can remove all of the fat leaving a well balanced abdominal region.

Fat in the flanks areas tend to be firm adipose tissue. Focused ultrasonic energy is able to break down the flank fat with ease, limiting disruption to surrounding muscles and ribs. A selective process controlled by different ultrasound frequencies. This selective process is crucial to achieve even results.

Some men have prominent abdominal obliques and lats. Removing the fatty area covering them reveals an athletic look.

Post Male Flanks Recovery

The recovery process is different for everyone. In general you should expect to take at least three days off from office-based work. If your work is physical, then a week off is ideal.

Immediately after surgery, you will be wearing a custom fitted compression garment. Wearing the compression garment is important in helping to reduce swelling and prevent build-up of fluid. The compression garment should not be taken off during the first two days after surgery. After two days, you may remove the compression for your first shower, but it should be put right back on. You need to wear compression as near to 24-hours a day as possible for the first 4 weeks of recovery.

Manual Lymphatic Massage

After VASER Lipo, patients are prescribed a recovery protocol to promote maximum skin retraction for this important male chest area. After-all we are looking for even contour and boost in self confidence. Physiotherapy of the treated area in the form of manual lymphatic drainage massages help so much with seamless recovery. We recommend manual lymphatic massage (MLD) therapy to enhance results and for an uneventful and speedier recovery. We usually recommend four to six sessions with MLD therapist starting from the second or third day post-op. These treatments are best spaced at intervals of two per week.

Post-Op Skincare

Skincare corrects and also maintains optimal skin health. Post liposuction we recommend specific topical treatment creams to further enhance uneventful recovery and tighter skin results. Regular application of skincare in the immediate post-op period allows for smoother transition to better results. ReFirm contains a unique combination of essential oils and repairing active peptides. Made with high quality natural plant-based ingredients. When combined with Recover Cream they have synergistic effect firming and healing treated area. Recover contains o.5% retinol and other nutrients to help balance the skin.


Although your VASER liposuction results are best seen after six weeks post-op, your body will continue to heal for the next four to six months. A good diet, staying well hydrated, wearing your compression, and regular lymphatic massage will help to expedite your recovery and ensure the best long-term results possible.
