3 Most Popular Body Contouring Procedures for Men
With plastic surgery becoming more and more popular as the years go by, an interesting fact is that more men are getting and considering plastic surgery than ever before. in fact, while in years past, the idea of plastic surgery was a bit of a faux pas in everyday conversation, even for women – today’s world is one where men and women can openly discuss surgery and aesthetic enhancement freely, and in the open! According to Dr. Voskin, the top plastic surgeon NYC has to offer, and his team at Goals Plastic Surgery Harlem, this open discussion and freedom is the main reason why more men are getting surgery done – more so than just the lack of embarrassment. The thing is that, because of the free exchange of ideas, there has been a number of interesting advancements in the technology as well as the research for surgery methods. Considering this, men and women are achieving better results than ever before, and male plastic surgery has reached the point where it isn’t just a hit or miss anymore, it is actually something that some doctors focus their entire practices on!
The problem in the past when it comes to male plastic surgery was that the procedures weren’t tailored to men at all, it was the same exact thing that was done for women, just with more anesthesia and sometimes a bigger incision. The fact is that, according to Dr. Voskin, the top plastic surgeon NYC has in practice, the many differences in the male aesthetic, mean the procedures must be designed differently, as a different result is needed. The one thing to understand however, is that the biology of the male physique plays a key role in the aesthetic enhancement surgery options for men. In fact, while body contouring is popular in women, it is equally so for men – but for different reasons usually. While women need to need body contouring on their arms, thighs, backside and abdomen (usually not the #1 concern for women), men almost exclusively require body contouring on their abdomen, including the love handles or flank area. This is because as men age, they tend to accumulate fat on their midsection the most. While women tend to spread it out a bit more to a few specific problem areas. However, there are a few specific concerns men do have when it comes to body toning options.
· The Stomach Area
The biggest concern for most men is by far the abdomen area, as it tends to store fat over time. Having a 6-pack is what every guy wants, but few can actually obtain. The problem is that as a man ages, the stomach is less and less likely to burn belly fat and a gut will develop easily – often no matter how hard you exercise or diet. Usually the two most common non-surgical options at Goals Plastic Surgery include the Emsculpt, and the SculpSure devices, as the Emsculpt can help you to burn fat and build muscle at the same time. Otherwise some men these days are even considering a body toning option like liposuction in conjunction with body contouring surgery like a tummy tuck – years ago you would never even think a man would get these procedures done.
· Chin & Jawline
As we age, our jawline becomes less and less tight and taught – losing much needed definition. The area under the chin is a prime spot for excess fat in men. Whether you wear a tie or not, a buildup of fat at the neck/chin juncture can make you feel dumpy and overweight when you are not. Thankfully, this focused area of fat accumulation is treated well with noninvasive body contouring devices such as CoolSculpting® and SculpSure®. Furthermore, there is an injectable, Kybella®, that was specifically designed to decrease the submental fat beneath the chin. In patients with a severe amount of extra fat, liposuction is probably going to be the best option.
· Gynecomastia Treatment
According to Dr. Voskin, the top plastic surgeon NYC has to offer, at Goals Plastic Surgery gynecomastia has become one of the most common issues amongst men. Gynecomastia is a fullness in the chest caused by an excess in glandular tissue, fat or a combination of the two. Incredibly common, there are a number of different ways to treat gynecomastia. The right procedure is going to depend on the underlying cause. In patients whose fullness is solely the result of too much fat, liposuction is the most common form of treatment. Sculpting and reducing the fat may lead to a trimmer and more masculine chest. Liposuction of the chest can be done safely under local anesthesia with minimal downtime and recovery. While most men suffer from this issue due to excess hormones as they age, or excess fat tissue, many however, have excess glandular tissue in addition to fat. The gland must be surgically removed in order to deliver the kind of flat, smooth chest that men desire. There are a few different incision options. The right one is going to depend on the amount of breast tissue that needs to be removed.
