Honoring the Masculine Profile
The stereotypical masculine profile is one of excess—excess tissue, excess muscle, excess mass. This is the kind of masculinity embodied by Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone as they made their way through 1980s action films. But that type of male body seems to be on the way, in favor of a more streamlined, more slender masculinity. This emphasis on slenderness isn’t necessarily anything new—but there are mounting pressures today on men to adopt a sleeker, more slender visage. This isn’t always easy to accomplish. Diet and exercise can only do so much, and often, there are distinct areas of fat that are immune to both.
The solution, then, is consistently one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country: liposuction. This is a procedure designed to reduce areas of excess fat. Liposuction has come a long way since its inception and, when once it was used a kind of blunt instrument—eliminating large amounts of fat—it is now used as a precision tool, capable not only of removing fat but also of sculpting the targeted area so that it blends in seamlessly with the rest of your body. Liposuction, after all, is about more than weight loss—it’s about refining and sculpting your body.
Liposuction for Men in Milwaukee
Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country. But much of that liposuction is marketed and targeted to appeal to women, and the needs of the male body are sometimes ignored. By offering liposuction specifically for men, Milwaukee Plastic Surgery is able to honor masculine goals and profiles. This way, our male patients can rest assured they’re getting a look that finds balance between their desire for a more slender appearance and their desire for a masculine physique and profile.

By taking a special, intentional approach to liposuction for men, Dr. Bosbous is able to honor the masculine features of the body while simultaneously reducing those distasteful areas of fat that will otherwise stubbornly stick around.
Am I a Good Candidate for Liposuction for Men in Milwaukee?
Compared to some other plastic surgery procedures, liposuction is certainly less invasive. But in order to optimize results, we do ask that our patients who come to see us in Milwaukee, consider the following criteria. Candidates for liposuction for men should exhibit some of the following characteristics:
- You desire to contour stubborn areas of fat that are immune to diet and exercise
- You are in generally good health or healthy enough for surgery
- You maintain a mostly stable or consistent weight
- You have realistic expectations about what liposuction can accomplish
- You want to maintain a masculine profile after your liposuction procedure
You should also come in to your liposuction procedure ready to discuss your medical history.
The Liposuction Procedure
Your liposuction procedure will begin like any other: with a consultation. During this consultation, you will discuss your desired goals with Dr. Bosbous and come to a consensus on the best areas to target and the best way to proceed. Once that consensus has been reached, your surgical operation will be scheduled. Often, liposuction is performed under general anesthesia, but sometimes it can be performed with local anesthetic. The procedure will generally take a couple of hours to complete.
During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will insert a cannula through a small incision and begin to extract unwanted fat from targeted areas. Sometimes, heat may be used to assist the procedure by melting fat (a process often referred to as liposculpting) in order to provide you with a more natural looking final result. Liposuction is generally performed as an outpatient procedure, so you can count on returning home to rest once the procedure is over.
Recovery and Results
The recovery for liposuction is among the most variable in plastic surgery, as much depends on the extent of work you’ve had done, your body’s natural rate of healing, and your own threshold for comfort. Because it is performed on an outpatient basis, you can generally count on returning home to recuperate, and—as a general rule of thumb—you should count on resting for somewhere between 2-3 days. After that time, if you feel up to it, you can return to work. In fact, most of our patients return to work after this three day period.
You can expect general soreness for anywhere between two and three weeks after your surgery. You may also notice swelling and bruising, and it may take several weeks for these artifacts of your procedure to subside. In fact, persistent swelling is not uncommon, and it can take anywhere between three and six months for swelling to subside completely. Most of our patients return to work in less than a week and refrain from exercising for the first couple of weeks after their operation. Dr. Bosbous supplies every patients with individualized recovery instructions designed to promote health and protect the results of the liposuction procedure.
As your swelling subsides, your results will become more noticeable. If you had a larger volume of fat removed, you may notice your transformation even sooner. Most of our Milwaukee liposuction patients are incredibly thrilled with their results—which, in most cases, are comprised of a more slender body, a more angular physique, and a more masculine profile.
