Body Contouring for Men
in New Jersey
Achieve a Trim and Athletic Physique with Our Male Body Contouring Services
The epitome of the male physique is often seen as trim and athletic, characterized by broad shoulders and chest, a lean abdomen, and slender hip-thigh regions. However, with age, many men witness the accumulation of fat in places like the abdomen, flanks (commonly termed “love handles”), breast (leading to a condition named gynecomastia), and the regions of the chin and neck.
For these persistent fat areas that remain unyielding to rigorous diet and exercise routines, many turn towards liposuction or body contouring. Often, liposuction in isolation can address these issues effectively. It’s worth noting that men tend to maintain their skin elasticity for a longer duration compared to women, and the fat deposits under their skin are generally firmer and more richly vascular. Due to these reasons, liposuction proves to be highly effective for men.
For those who not only have excessive fat but also loose, sagging skin, the option of a traditional excision procedure (which involves surgical skin removal) combined with liposuction can be explored. At Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey, we welcome you to discuss these techniques with us. We’ll guide you on the best-suited path to help you realize your aesthetic aspirations. Our approach towards male plastic surgery is distinctive and tailored.
What Does the Procedure Entail?
The body contouring procedure for men is specifically tailored to address the unique contours and demands of the male physique. Here’s a brief outline of the process:
- Liposuction: Small incisions are made in discreet locations. Through these incisions, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted to break up and suction out the unwanted fat deposits.
- Excision (if required): For those with excess, sagging skin, an excision may be performed. This involves making strategic incisions to remove unwanted skin and then suturing the area to create a smoother, tauter appearance.
- Recovery: After the procedure, patients may need to wear a compression garment to help reduce swelling and support the new contours. There will be post-operative instructions provided, ensuring a smooth and efficient recovery.
Who is a candidate for Male Body Contouring in New Jersey?
The ideal candidate for this procedure is typically a man in good health, without any medical conditions that could hinder healing or elevate surgical risks. It’s crucial for these individuals to have realistic expectations; while body contouring can produce remarkable changes, understanding the extent and limits of the results is essential. Additionally, smoking can pose a significant challenge during the healing process. Thus, prime candidates are either non-smokers or those ready to abstain from smoking both before the procedure and throughout the recovery period. A significant concern leading men to opt for body contouring in New Jersey is the accumulation of fat in areas unresponsive to diet and exercise. Additionally, those who have experienced extensive weight loss and are left grappling with sagging skin also frequently seek out this transformative procedure.
Commonly asked questions for male body contouring
Male body contouring is a set of surgical procedures tailored specifically for men to enhance the shape and proportions of the body by removing excess fat and, if necessary, tightening loose skin.
While the fundamental techniques may be similar, male body contouring focuses on enhancing masculine features, such as a broader chest, more defined abdominal muscles, and a V-shaped torso.
The duration varies depending on the extent of the surgery and the areas being treated. Typically, it can range from 1 to 4 hours.
Patients are given anesthesia to ensure comfort during the surgery. After the procedure, there might be some discomfort, but this can usually be managed with prescribed pain medications.
Recovery can vary based on the extent of the procedure. Most men return to light activities within a week and resume strenuous activities in 4-6 weeks.
The fat cells removed during liposuction are permanently gone. However, significant weight gain after the procedure can affect the results. Maintaining a stable weight and healthy lifestyle will help sustain the results.
