The ideal male body shape is considered to be trim and athletic-looking, with broad shoulders and chest, a flat abdomen, and a narrow hip-thigh area. However, as men age, areas of fat tend to accumulate around the abdomen, the flanks (“love handles”), the breast area (a condition called gynecomastia), and along the chin and neck.

Men may seek liposuction or body contouring to remove these fatty areas that are resistant to diet and exercise. In many cases, liposuction alone can effectively correct these problem areas. Men retain their skin elasticity longer than women do, and the areas of fat beneath the skin tend to be firmer and more vascular than those in women. Because of these and other factors, liposuction in men is usually very effective.
Men who have some loose, hanging skin as well as areas of excess fat may opt for a traditional excision procedure (surgical skin removal) in addition to liposuction. We would be happy to discuss the differences in these techniques with you and show you how we are able to help you achieve your goals at Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey.

Most male patients prefer natural, conservative results that do not make them appear feminized or operated upon. Many male patients also express concerns regarding privacy. Rest assured that we provide a high level of anonymity and a fast track recovery program for accelerated re-entry into their work place.
