When it comes to liposuction, many plastic surgeons approach their male and female patients in the same way: just remove the targeted fat. However, this one-size-fits-all approach does patients a huge disservice, as men and women don’t seek out liposuction for the same reasons. For example, while women may want to get rid of post-pregnancy stomach fat, men may want to get rid of fat tissue around the waistband or on the chest.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Vitolo is pleased to specialize in male liposuction, a fat removal surgery designed specifically to meet men’s unique cosmetic needs. Dr. Vitolo’s male liposuction is designed to specifically target and remove stubborn fat that won’t respond to traditional diet and exercise methods, but in a way that complements a man’s natural body shape.


The best candidates for male liposuction usually follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen, but for a variety of reasons, their body fat won’t respond to their hard work. Liposuction is typically performed on the stomach, waistline, and chest, but it can also be performed on more unique body areas, like the back or even underneath the chin.


Dr. Robert Vitolo treats patients from the Greater New York Metropolitan area including Manhattan, the 5 boroughs and New Jersey. He has offices in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island for the patients’ convenience.

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vitolo’s approach to male liposuction is like that of an artist: He works with your specific needs to ensure that your final results transform you into the work of art you want to be.

You’ll first meet with Dr. Vitolo during your consultation, where you and he will discuss why you want to undergo fat removal surgery, as well as any concerns you might have for the procedure. Dr. Vitolo will examine you and make recommendations as to where liposuction should be performed to achieve your desired goals. Dr. Vitolo’s primary outcome for the consultation is to have you feeling safe, comfortable, and confident about how you’ll look after your liposuction.

Dr. Vitolo’s preference for liposuction is the External Ultrasonic Assisted Liposculpture (EUAL). In this procedure, he injects a fluid into the areas he wishes to treat (saline + anesthetic), but instead of beginning the liposculpture, he applies ultrasonic energy to the areas that he will re-contour. The ultrasonic energy is transmitted through the skin without damage and semi-liquefies the fat. It is only then that he begins liposculpting the areas. Since the fat is now a semi-liquid, he does not have to break up the fat but removes it with very fine cannulas with suction. The ultrasound also decreases bleeding and causes the skin to contract better following the procedure.

When the best contour is achieved, Dr. Vitolo molds the body by applying white foam tapes to the areas suctioned. This serves to keep the new shape stabilized during healing and prevent bruising. The tapes are removed after 2 days and normally there is little or no bruising.


Dr. Vitolo’s patients typically return to work and most normal activities 2 to 3 days after surgery. Healing is quite quick, and many patients have their surgery on a Friday, take their compression garment and foam tapes off on Sunday, and return to work on Monday. Dr. Vitolo prefers that patients who have had a number of lower body areas done, wear a compression garment, which can easily be worn under clothes, for about 2 weeks, but this is optional.


With Dr. Vitolo’s patients, early results can be seen as soon as the compression garment is removed. The final results continue to develop over time, but usually, in a week or two, they are beach ready. Most of his patients don’t take the pain medications he prescribes, as there is minimal postoperative pain, just a little soreness for a day or two. There is usually no bruising visible, unless the inner thigh was done then there may be some.

Patients frequently remark, right after the initial garment comes off, that they can fit into clothes that were always too tight for them.
