Many men work hard to get into shape but sometimes find that they’re unable to get the sculpted physique they really want. As a result, there is a growing demand for male body contouring treatments that can remove stubborn fat and skin and create a toned, defined look.
These days, men want to look youthful and feel confident in their appearance so plastic surgery for men has become very popular. At West Michigan Plastic Surgery, Dr. Scott Holley helps men in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids achieve subtle, natural-looking body contouring results.
Male body contouring involves procedures that are designed to remove excess skin and fat to create a defined, more masculine physique. There are different male body contouring options that can reshape the body including tummy tuck surgery, gynecomastia, and liposuction.
Men who are already on a healthy lifestyle regimen and are interested in toning their physique to get a more defined look, are good candidates for male body contouring.
Male body contouring or plastic surgery for men typically involves a combination of procedures that remove excess skin and fat from different parts of the body.
Male body contouring procedures generally enhance the physique. Depending on the procedure the results may take several weeks or months to be seen.
Recovery time after male body contouring varies depending on the type of procedure done. Recovery from male breast reduction may take a few days, whereas surgery after weight loss may require several months of recovery since it’s a more intensive procedure.
Regardless of how hard some men work in the gym, they find it difficult to achieve the defined abs they desire. A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty helps men create the abdominal tone they desire, by removing loose skin and fat from the mid to low abdomen, and tightening the muscles of the abdominal wall.
Liposuction targets excess fatty deposits, so it’s a great solution for stubborn pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction requires only very small incisions through which a cannula (small tube) is introduced to remove the excess fat. It is ideal for stubborn fat in areas like the abdomen and flanks. Liposuction is a good option for men already on a healthy lifestyle regimen, who have not been able to get the body contours they want.
Significant weight loss often results in skin laxity, especially in areas such as the arms, abdomen, back, and thighs. Body lift procedures are designed to contour these areas and tone the body. At West Michigan Plastic Surgery, we customize body lift procedures to meet the specific needs of each patient.
Dr. Holley performs male breast reduction surgery to resolve gynecomastia, which is the enlargement of the male breasts. Nearly 60% of men will develop some form of undesirable breast enlargement. Male breast reduction is designed to remove excess glandular tissue and fat from the breast, to tone and recontour the chest for a more masculine appearance.
