Liposuction & Body Contouring for Men

Liposuction for Men PhiladelphiaFrom GQ to Men’s Health, one doesn’t have to look far to see a magazine with a fit-looking man on the cover. As the societal standards for the male physique continue to rise, more men want a body that aligns with ideal masculine figure proportions and appears lean, toned, and athletic. The problem is that as men advance in the aging process, excess fat (that is resistant to dieting and exercise) becomes more likely to collect along the midsection, chest, chin, neck, and other areas, which can have a dramatic effect on the overall appearance. Thankfully, customized liposuction and other body contouring procedures performed by Dr. Joseph DiBello can help men combat these changes to achieve a trim, sculpted, and youthful-looking appearance.

Liposuction & Body Contouring Options for Men


Liposuction is a customized procedure that removes excess fat from specific areas of the body to sculpt the physique and create a leaner, more toned appearance. During the procedure a slender cannula is inserted through very small incisions in the skin to break down and suction away fat cells. Dr. DiBello performs liposuction with great attention to detail to deliver the highest quality results for each patient. High-definition body sculpting with advanced liposuction techniques allows Dr. DiBello to create the smooth, toned results his male patients are most often looking for. The goal is always to minimize surplus fat, define underlying musculature, and give the body a more balanced, proportionate appearance that enhances a masculine aesthetic.

Liposuction is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise, but the procedure can eliminate areas of fat that are unresponsive to typical weight-loss methods. A consultation with Dr. DiBello will help you determine if you are a candidate for liposuction. At that time, he will discuss what is involved in your personal surgical experience and the best technique for you to achieve a natural, toned result.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

Despite abdominal exercises, such as sit-ups and intense aerobic workouts, there are often localized fat deposits that remain in the central and lower abdomen, and flanks (or “love handles”) in males. Abdomen reduction may be a good course of action to take to achieve the desired result in the abdominal area. Men with good skin elasticity who have only a moderate amount of excess abdominal fat may benefit from liposuction alone; however, when stretched, loose skin and/or damaged musculature is present in the midsection, full tummy tuck surgery may be the best way to tighten, smooth, and recontour the region. The tummy tuck process is an intensive procedure that can combine excess fat removal, surgical tightening and repair of abdominal muscles, and excision of redundant skin to achieve more desirable waistline contours. Compared to liposuction, patients should plan for a longer recovery time after a tummy tuck.

Gynecomastia Treatment (Male Breast Reduction)

When fat and/or excess breast tissue creates the appearance of enlarged male breasts (a condition called gynecomastia), Dr. DiBello can perform customized gynecomastia correction using liposuction and/or other surgical contouring techniques to achieve a flatter, firmer, more masculine-looking chest. Since each case of gynecomastia is unique, Dr. DiBello develops a customized male breast reduction treatment plan for each patient aimed at creating the best possible outcome. During the consultation, he discusses the treatment options he plans to use and explains what to expect at each stage of the process.

Post-Weight Loss Body Contouring

For men who have lost significant amounts of weight due to changes in diet and exercise or weight loss surgery, Dr. DiBello performs specific body contouring procedures designed to eliminate drooping excess skin and reveal the “new body” beneath. Dr. DiBello understands how challenging it is to lose weight and how proud patients are of their progress, which is why it is so rewarding when he is able to help men achieve the physique they have been striving for in the final stage of their body transformation process. Depending on where the excess skin is located and how much tissue must be removed, Dr. DiBello may suggest a comprehensive procedure such as body lift surgery or more targeted procedures which focus on specific areas of the body, such as the arms (arm lift) and midsection (abdominoplasty). Good candidates for these procedures are physically healthy, at a stable “goal” weight, and do not plan to continue losing any more weight. Men who undergo post-weight loss plastic surgery with Dr. DiBello are typically thrilled with their results. Dr. DiBello’s careful surgical artistry and experience performing these procedures enable him to deliver consistently outstanding outcomes his patients are proud of.
