How We Use Body Contouring To Help Male Patients

three-males-friendsAll industry data indicates that the popularity of plastic surgery among male patients has skyrocketed over the last decade. That has certainly been our experience here at Atlanta Plastic Surgery. It makes sense for men to turn to cosmetic procedures in hopes of achieving a refreshed, younger looking appearance. And while some might assume that automatically means facial procedure, our board-certified plastic surgeons are here to explain how we help male patients with common body contouring surgeries.

Gynecomastia is a very common aesthetic condition that affects men of all ages. Men with gynecomastia experience male breast enlargement, or the appearance of “man boobs,” due to an excess of glandular tissue in the chest area. Although this tissue cannot be addressed through diet and exercise, we perform male breast reduction surgery to help men with gynecomastia who wish to achieve a flatter, more masculine chest contour.

Liposuction remains the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedure for both male and female patients, and for good reason. This extremely versatile and effective procedure can help reduce patches of unwanted fat from all over a man’s body. Male liposuction patients are typically most interested in removing fat from their flanks (love handles), chest, neck, back, and abdomen. However, when performed by an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, liposuction for men can be applied virtually anywhere.

Tummy tuck surgery can also help men by helping provide a more trim and firm midsection. Many guys desire a tight, toned abdominal area. A tummy tuck can help by surgically removing loose skin (common after significant weight loss), repairing loose or damaged abdominal muscles, and treating or preventing potential abdominal hernias.

The board-certified plastic surgeons here at Atlanta Plastic Surgery have been performing cosmetic procedures on male patients for many years and understand how to provide outstanding aesthetic results while helping our patients maintain their more masculine features.
