I went thru lipo on the abdomen 18 months ago. I know there arent a lot of guys on here so I figured I would give back to the board because it has been so helpful to me.
So if you have any questions, I can answer the best I can given my experience. I will get some Before/After pics for you guyz when I can.
Pre OP 18 months ago 240lbs
Post OP 18 months later: Yesterday. I did not loose any pounds from the operation but I did lose about 15 on my own. I have also been lifting weights lately but not that much. Of course I need to loose more and get more fit but the pics give you a good idea of the results. I am still chubby but I have lost the gut that hangs over the belt wich I hated.

I am very pleased with the results. I see that now some pics quit working but I can tell you that I would never want to go back to that pic up top. The only thing I regret is not getting the love handles dones and I would tell my doc to not put stiches over the entry points, just let them heal to look like battle scars because you can tell it's more than a cut. My ex spotted the stiches when we "hooked up" once and so did my cousin when I was doing so yard work at his house shirtless.
The reason I wanted to this is that I was self conscious about my belly. Now my body looks more athletic even thou the rest of it hasnt changed. I can wear things I never dreamed of before.
Now I look good in a suit. Before I looked like fat uncle at a wedding. I can wear snug t shirts and dress shirts.
Theres a couple of my buddies who look just like I used to and when they complain about it I just want to scream "take care of it like I did, it's only $3300"!!! But for a guy to admit he got that done... well the jabs and bad jokes would never end.
