Until recently, men have become more comfortable expressing the need to feel good about themselves and how they are able to achieve this by looking great. For years we have seen men working it in the gym, but now all have the luxury of time and the discipline to keep an exercise routine in order to achieve the form that they have always dreamed of. Although women were initially the target market of cosmetic procedures, more and more men are coming in for body sculpting procedures to enhance their male form and make them look more masculine.
One of the most popular body sculpting procedure in our office for men is liposuction. As some of you may know, liposuction is the removal of fat calls to achieve a leaner body contour. Some people are genetically predisposed to have fat deposits in certain areas of the body which can be resistant to any amount of diet and exercise and liposuction is just what they need to successfully remove these. Liposuction involves the insertion of a cannula tube into the skin and this is used to break down the fat cells underneath and suction them out.
Although we don’t offer it at our office, a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty is another popular body sculpting procedure for men that removes the unwanted skin in the abdomen. This procedure is great for patients who have lost an excessive amount of weight and have found the front portion of their abdomen hanging. This is loose skin and cannot be reduced even if you exercise tirelessly. A tummy tuck will surgically remove this loose skin and repair the underlying muscles so that it can provide the support that your abdomen needs.
Some people might not need a tummy tuck to tighten loose sagging skin. A great procedure for this is Thermage, which we do offer here at Nowak Aesthetics. Thermage’s unique Capacitive Radiofrequency (CRF) technology safely heats your skin’s underlayer and the web of collagen in the inner layer, causing an immediate tightening as well as improved tone and texture. The improvements will continue and become even more noticeable for four to six months following treatment, due to new collagen growth.
Don’t be surprised, but there are some men who are having buttock enhancements as well, and actually, why not, I say? We don’t offer buttock enhancements at our office, however buttocks can actually enhance the profile and body contour of a person especially when it is in its best shape. A buttock enhancement procedure will benefit men with flat and under developed buttocks. A buttock enhancement procedure will reshape and improve the definition of a man’s buttocks through the use of different augmentation techniques like implants etc.
Another popular male body contouring procedure that we offer is gynecomastia or breast reduction procedure for men. There are some men who are just born with large female like breasts and some who have it due to weight gain. This can be corrected to achieve a more masculine breast profile through the excision of the excess skin in the breast area combined with a liposuction procedure to reduce the fat deposits in the breasts.
