The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that in 2019, liposuction was the third most popular cosmetic procedure among American men, with over 30,000 procedures being performed that year alone. (2) People today are living longer, and enjoying better health than ever before. And since Californians enjoy such high standards of living, it’s no wonder that more men are taking the time to improve all aspects of their bodies.
At NorCal Liposculpture, liposuction is a sculptural art with a holistic approach that takes the entirety of your physique into consideration. Liposculpture is not just about erasing bumps and bulges. It balances proportions and accentuates a patient’s unique assets. New liposuction technologies like VASER HI-DEF Lipo can use the reductive abilities of liposuction to sculpt ideally defined pectoral masses that enhance the muscles of the chest. By strategically removing fat, Dr. Friedlander can smooth the planes of the chest, and outline existing musculature to give your chest that “cut” look.
Liposuction Techniques at NorCal Liposculpture
Liposuction as we know it today has come a long way since its introduction over 30 years ago. This technology is continually evolving to deliver improved precision, efficiency, and patient comfort. At NorCal Lipo, Dr. Friedlander practices tumescent liposuction, a game-changing technique developed in 1987 by Dr. Jeffrey Klein, a fellow Californian doctor. This technique infuses the area to be treated with a specially designed solution that reduces bleeding and discomfort and allows the fat to be removed more easily. (3)
VASER Liposuction for the Chest
The introduction of tumescent liposuction was not only a victory for patient safety and comfort. It also paved the way for VASER Liposuction. VASER lipo adds the power of ultrasound technology to the liposuction procedure. Ultrasonic waves agitate the tumescent fluid, and loosen and liquefy fat cells to emulsify them into this solution. It’s similar to the way you might shake a bottle of salad dressing to mix the oil into the vinegar! When the suctioning cannula is introduced, it is able to easily remove this fatty emulsion and damage fewer other tissues in the process.
Surgeons that practice ultrasound-assisted liposuction prefer this technique because it causes less bruising, bleeding and ultimately less patient discomfort. Multiple studies have confirmed that it’s especially effective in areas of the body that also contain fibrous tissue – like the male chest. (1)
VASER HI-DEF Liposuction
VASER HI-DEF Liposuction takes it to the next level.
If you’re narrowly within your target body weight and want to perfect your pectorals, VASER Hi-Def is the way to go. Dr. Friedlander uses the VASER technique to remove fat from strategic locations sculpt the appearance of ideally defined musculature.
As an added perk to your pecs, VASER liposuction does what traditional lipo can’t. VASER’s ultrasonic waves also stimulate the production of collagen to tighten the skin in the treatment area. You won’t be left with deflated or sagging skin, and you may even notice improvements in the texture and quality of the skin on your chest.

Before your liposuction procedure begins, you’ll be administered a sedative via an IV, and be given the appropriate injections of local anesthesia to ensure that you are resting comfortably and pain-free during your procedure. VASER only requires tiny incisions. Dr. Friedlander will be able make these in discreet locations that allow him access to the fat deposits on your chest, but don’t impact your appearance. These incisions will allow him to inject the tumescent fluid. Once this has taken effect, he’ll insert the thin titanium VASER probe to emit the ultrasonic energy and prepare the fat for aspiration. This combination of tumescent fluid and fat is then suctioned out using delicate passes of a thin cannula, or hollow straw that is attached to a vacuum device and collection vessel. Once all of the unwanted fat is removed, your incisions will be sutured, and you’ll be moved to a recovery room to wait for the anesthetics to wear off. Your chest will be properly dressed with bandages and a compression garment before you are sent home with your designated driver to begin the healing process.
Even the most meticulous liposuction performed by the most skilled hands is an invasive and demanding procedure. It’s important to take the time to heal properly. You’ll need to rest for a few days. Plan to experience some soreness; your chest will likely be bruised and swollen. You’ll be given a compression garment to wear to help reduce swelling and optimize your results, and this should be worn for the first few weeks after your procedure. In the meantime, if you have an office job, or one that isn’t physically demanding, you should be able to return to work in three to five days. You’ll be able to ease back into your workout routine in two to three weeks. During this time, you’ll have regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Friedlander so that he can monitor your recovery, and ensure that you’ll have show-stopping results.
Although you may notice a significant difference in the shape of your chest immediately after your liposuction procedure, your results will continue to improve as the swelling diffuses each day. Within two to three months, you’ll feel completely recovered.
You’ll feel better once you get it off your chest. Liposuction at NorCal LipoSculpture can replace embarrassing pads of chest fat with tight, smooth contours and sexy definition. Make sure to maintain a healthy lifestyle so that you’ll be ready to whip your shirt off for years to come!
