If recent plastic surgery trends show us anything, it is that plastic surgery is no longer something that is only reserved for women. More men are turning to cosmetic surgery to attain masculine contours that are unattainable otherwise. Many men are dissatisfied with the inability to tone and transform their physiques through the usual means of a healthy diet and exercise. Unfortunately for many, genetics stand in the way of them achieving the sculpted chest and firm midsection they desire. Cosmetic surgery not only reduces diet and exercise-resistant pockets of fat but does so in a way that provides sculpted, tailored results.
A Slimmer Contour
Some men are unable to get rid of stubborn fat pockets on their abdomen, even with countless hours spent at the gym. Aging, poor diets, and busy schedules lead to the development of fat deposits on the lower stomach, chest, and love handles. Liposuction or SmartLipo™ can be performed to reduce the appearance of these fat deposits. Liposuction does this by suctioning away fat cells through small incisions. SmartLipo™ does much the same; however, it uses laser light energy to rupture and liquefy the fat cells before removal to allow for a more comfortable treatment. Liposuction and SmartLipo™ provide slimmer lines and a firmer abdominal and chest appearance.
A Sculpted Chest
While liposuction alone is enough to tone and tighten the chest region for some men, others may suffer from gynecomastia, a condition characterized by excess skin and glandular tissue in the chest. Gynecomastia is treated through gynecomastia surgery, where the excess skin and tissue are surgically excised to reveal a more sculpted chest contour. By tightening this region, men can attain a toned upper body without repeated gym sessions.
A Toned Waist
For men that are unable to tighten up their abdomens on their own, or for men who have lost a significant amount of weight and now have excess skin and loose abdominal muscles, tummy tuck surgery can restore or create a toned waist and abdominal contours. Tummy tuck surgery removes lax skin around the abdomen while also tightening the underlying abdominal muscles. Tummy tuck surgery results in a firm midsection.
An Increased Confidence Level
Although many consider body issues to be something that only women experience, men also suffer damage to their confidence due to dissatisfaction with their physical appearance. Cosmetic surgery can restore self-esteem by enhancing the way that men see their bodies. This can affect the way they present themselves in professional and social settings and improve their quality of life.
