What is Male Body Contouring?
Male body contouring can take many forms. The most common areas that men like to address are love handles and the chest. Love handles are frequently addressed with liposuction and many different technologies are available to help improve the result.
Men who have some loose, hanging skin, as well as areas of excess fat, may opt for a traditional excision procedure (surgical skin removal) in addition to liposuction. A full abdominoplasty (or “tummy tuck”) may be chosen by men who have hanging abdominal skin (usually the result of massive weight loss), loose abdominal muscles and/or neglected hernias. An abdominoplasty is a major surgical procedure that removes excess fat, tightens the muscles of the abdominal wall and trims the waistline. Men who have a full abdominoplasty are often surprised at the long recovery period. Some patients aren’t able to return to work up to 4 weeks after surgery.
Men with good skin elasticity who have only a moderate amount of excess abdominal fat may benefit from liposuction alone. Muscle-enhancing surgery: In recent years, Dr. Soto has developed ways of improving muscle contour with cosmetic “sculpting” techniques.
