Over the years, cosmetic surgery for men has become more accepted within society. In some cases, some surgical procedures are seen more popular for men than women. In particular, men have been more drawn towards male body contouring procedures as a way to define their shape and appearance. Over time, patients can witness signs of ageing through sagging skin and excessive tissue forming around the body.
Luckily, there are both surgical and non-surgical solutions that can help resolve the issue for patients. Each of the methods have their benefits and downfalls, which is why it’s important to discuss the procedure through a consultation. Here, you can also discuss which option may be ideal for you to suit your male body contouring needs. What may be suitable for one patient, may not be suitable for you. It’s important to explore the options available to you.
Male body contouring to treat the abdomen
The abdomen area is probably considered the biggest concern for many male patients. In an ideal scenario, male patients would prefer to have a flat stomach with visible abdomen muscles. However, ageing can cause patients to form a gut which becomes merely impossible to reduce. Even with the right diet and exercise. There are popular non-surgical solutions that can help resolve this issue:
These techniques involve the fat cells being treated through hot or cold temperatures. It’s then through natural metabolic systems that the cells are completely eliminated. These types of treatments will require several treatments.
A form of surgical technique is liposuction. This can be considered a more effective technique and is relatively popular for abdomen solutions. As a male body contouring procedure, it provides the surgeon the ability to mould the abdomen to how they wish it to be. There will be more downtime required compared to non-surgical treatments and a compression garment will need to be worn.
Gynaecomastia to improve the appearance of the chest
The next form of surgery that’s relatively popular is gynaecomastia, which improves the appearance of the chest. Typically, male patients tend to have this procedure when they form ‘man boobs’ which is excess glandular tissue forming in the chest area. Depending on the cause of this tissue will help to determine the ideal procedure.
For patients that have tissue forming because of too much fat, liposuction is typically the solution. Through this method, the chest can be sculpted and fat can be reduced. On the other hand, patients may suffer from excess glandular tissue in the chest. In which case, the gland will be required to be surgically removed. The amount of tissue that needs to be removed will determine which the correct incision option will be.
Defining the jawline
Having a crisp and defined jawline can be a wanting desire for men. Unfortunately, not every man is blessed with such a feature and fat can form under the chin easily with age. Thankfully, there are non-invasive procedures that can help to treat the area of fat. Treatments such as CoolSculpting and Sculpsure are possibilities, as well as injectables such as Kybella.
For surgical procedures, liposuction would be a procedure that can help to reduce the extra fat in the neck area. There is also the possibility of having neck lift surgery. This can help to provide a more youthful appearance and tighten the skin within the area.
There can be times when these can be conducted as stand alone procedures. However, for patients that have loose skin that sags regularly, you may require a combination of procedures. This is something that can easily be discussed during your consultation.
