Male Liposuction 

Male fat is typically more difficult to extract than female fat. Dr. Christine Sullivan believes in Vaser Liposuction. Vaser liposuction is a special type of ultrasound technology. This type of liposuction is effective because it will emulsify fat cells without damaging other tissues during a male liposuction procedure. This safe, proven technique can be used on men who are healthy, eat right and exercise regularly. The best candidates for male liposuction are those who are in relatively good shape but still have trouble areas in spite of their healthy lifestyle.  Who better to perform your Male Liposuction Columbus, Ohio treatment than a board certified female plastic surgeon?

Vaser liposuction for men can used to treat nearly any area of the male body. Dr. Sullivan will determine, during your consultation and examination, which type of liposuction would be the most beneficial in addressing your specific areas of concern. You will discuss all of your individual pre- and post-operative needs with our team of nurses during your comprehensive pre-op appointment.


Dr. Sullivan first fills the areas of your body to be liposuctioned with a specialized saline solution that numbs the site. This solution also reduces bruising by shrinking the blood vessels in the treatment area. VASER® Liposuction Columbus, Ohio consists of a small probe that transmits energy to the surgical site.
