Body Contouring Procedures for Men
While the majority of plastic surgery patients are female, an increasing number of men are enjoying the benefits of treatment. Men deserve to look and feel good about themselves, even when the effects of aging, stress, hormones and weight fluctuation have taken their unfortunate toll. Dr. Pearl and Dr. Ereso offer several types of body contouring treatments to address excess body fat and loose skin and give male patients the enviable physique they desire.
What Body Contouring Procedures Can Offer Men
- A lean, muscular looking appearance
- A proportional physique
- Clothing fits better
- Increased self-confidence
Body contouring options include the following:
A classically masculine chest is flat, firm and muscular. Unfortunately, some men have enlarged, women-like breasts due to a medical condition known as gynecomastia. This problem can be socially devastating in that besides being afraid to be seen with their shirt off in public, some men wear clothes that are excessively loose and ill-fitting in the attempt to hide their chest contour. Male breast reduction surgery is performed to remove excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from the chest to recreate the contours of a more "normal" looking chest. Depending on the specific patient's problem, liposuction and surgical excision techniques are used to remove the fat and glandular tissue all while keeping the scars small and imperceptible. Dr. Pearl and Dr. Ereso have performed this procedure on over 150 patients. Their expertise has led to dramatic changes in the lifestyle of their patients and profound improvement in their self-confidence
Liposuction is a contouring tool, not a weight loss method. It is intended for men that are in relatively good shape but have pockets of unwanted body fat that do not respond to diet or exercise. Dr. Pearl and Dr. Ereso utilize the latest techniques in liposuction including ultrasonic-assisted and power-assisted liposuction. The ultimate goal of these techniques is to break up the stubborn fatty tissue and remove it from the body. Liposuction is commonly used to shape the abdominal area, flanks, buttocks, back, upper arms and even the chin (in the case of a "double chin"). If you feel a certain area of your body looks out of proportion to the rest of your physique, liposuction may be right for you.
Lower body lift is a procedure to remove excess loose skin, tissue and fat deposits for a more toned body appearance. It is a wonderful solution for men that have lost a significant amount of weight but find their skin has not contracted around their new shape. During the procedure, excess skin, lax tissue and pockets of fat are removed from the abdomen, hips, outer thighs and buttocks. Then, the remaining skin and tissue are resculpted to "lift" the lower body. Not only does a body lift have cosmetic benefits, it can also decrease some of the uncomfortable side effects of too much loose skin, including chafing, rashes, infections and limited mobility. Most patients notice their clothing fits better after surgery and moving around is easier.
