It is not always true that art imitates life. The new Capt. America movie takes a scrawny looking man and seemingly effortlessly turns him into a muscular super hero. It is not unusual for patients to believe that plastic surgery works like the magic of the camera. Some men consult with Dr. O’Toole concerning their physique. Their desire is often to have a flatter more muscular abdomen. They would also like to have a smaller more proportionate waist line. Dr. O’Toole will typically recommend either traditional liposuction or Smart Lipo depending upon which is best for the patient. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. The degree of muscular structure visible after surgery is dependent upon the patients muscle definition prior to and after surgery. Patients must remember that what we see in the movies is not real. According to The Los Angeles Times if you’re looking for tips on how Chris Evans went from brawny to scrawny in the upcoming movie “Captain America: The First Avenger,” you’ll need to pull back on the protein shakes and pick up some Photoshop skills — it took a lot of special effects to make the toned actor look like the skinny military hopeful he’s supposed to be at the beginning of the story.
“It’s pretty amazing,” Evans told Reuters. “They took shape out of my jaw line, they shrunk my skeleton and they made my shoulders less broad.”
Those rippling muscles on his Captain America alter-ego, however, are anything but CGI — the actor put on 15 pounds of muscle to play the part.
