Male Body Contouring in San Jose

Serving Mountain View & the Bay Area

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. Ereso offers several types of body contouring treatments to address excess body fat and loose skin and give male patients the enviable physique they desire.

Male Body Contouring Candidates

If you are physically healthy and do not smoke (or can commit to quitting shortly before surgery), you may be a candidate for male body contouring. You should not have any serious medical conditions that could increase the risks of surgery, or impact your body’s ability to recover.

When evaluating you for male body contouring surgery, Dr. Ereso will want to ensure that your expectations of treatment are reasonable. He will inquire about your motivations for pursuing surgery and ask you what you hope to achieve. Generally, you should expect an improvement in the target treatment area(s) instead of perfection. Dr. Ereso can work with you to set your expectations accordingly.

Male Body Contouring Options

Male Breast Reduction for Gynecomastia

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. Ereso has performed this procedure on many patients. His expertise has led to dramatic changes in the lifestyle of patients and profound improvement in their self-confidence.

Male Liposuction

Male Liposuction in San JoseLiposuction 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. Ereso utilizes 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.

Male Lower Body Lift

Male Body Lift in the Bay AreaLower 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 re-sculpted 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.

Recovering from Body Contouring

The recovery from body contouring surgery varies by patient and procedure. Most men need to take a week or more off from work and socializing for their initial recovery. Strenuous exercise is not permitted for at least four to six weeks after surgery.

Dr. Ereso understands that it can be challenging for men to take the time to recuperate from surgery. Many men are used to an active lifestyle and have a hard time asking for help from others. In the interest of a smooth, speedy recovery, plan to relax for a few weeks and recruit the help of a loved one to help you with cooking, chores and other household responsibilities.


In the right candidates, body contouring is a safe way to achieve a more masculine and chiseled physique. Dr. Ereso should have an updated list of your medications, allergies and any medical conditions to help him plan the safest treatment possible.

Serious long-term risks are rare, but can include infection, bleeding, pain, under- or over-correction and irregular-looking contours. Dr. Ereso will discuss the steps he takes to minimize the risk of complications during your pre-operative consultation.

Reviews/Testimonials of Body Contouring

“You are in good hands with Dr. Ereso. He is responsive and informative on what to expect and will tell you what’s to come next. He is one to trust with your surgery. I came to Dr. Ereso after seeing a number of positive reviews and after my initial consultation I decided this was the surgeon for me (I had considered others and opted to forgo other appts as I felt Dr. Ereso was a good decision). Dr. Ereso accommodated my very strict timeline (Had travel plans) and opened up his schedule to me for any needs I had or desired appts. He has been a great surgeon and with me every step of the way. {Gynecomastia} was something I had struggled with since Highschool and I wanted to make sure before I wrote a review I felt happy with my decision and results. We are now just before 6 months in and I wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for what Dr Ereso has done for me. I am very happy with my results and would gladly serve as a resource / reference for Dr. Ereso” .
