About Male Body Sculpting
The ideal male body shape is trim and athletic-looking, with broad shoulders and chest, a flat abdomen, and a narrow hip-thigh area. However, as men age, areas of fat tend to accumulate around the abdomen, the flanks (“love handles”), the breast area (a condition called gynecomastia), and along the chin and neck.
Liposuction/Body Contouring for Men
Men sometimes seek liposuction to remove the fatty areas resistant to diet and exercise. In many cases, liposuction alone can effectively correct these problem areas. Men retain their skin elasticity longer than women, and the areas of fat beneath the skin tend to be firmer and more vascular than those in women. Because of these and other factors, liposuction in men is usually very effective. 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.
Abdomen Reduction for Men
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, or neglected hernias. It 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 will be allowed graduated activity during the recovery period, which lasts for several weeks. Some patients aren’t released to return to work for up to three 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 for Men
In recent years, plastic surgeons have developed ways of improving muscle contour with cosmetic implants and “sculpting” techniques. Calf implants, which were originally developed to restore leg contour in accident or polio victims, are now sometimes used to create cosmetic fullness in the lower leg. Pectoral implants have been used for reconstruction of the absent pectoral muscle in men who have Poland’s syndrome. Pectoral implants may now be used to enhance the chest in men desiring to have more prominence in that area.
