Men Benefit from Body Sculpting
- Posted on: Nov 15 2017
Historically the vast majority of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures have been perceived as “woman’s work.” Plastic surgery is what a woman does to maintain the youthful beauty she desires. Body contouring procedures such as liposuction and abdominoplasty have been right up there at the top of the list of “women’s procedures.” Well, that’s just wrong. To exclude men from cosmetic procedures is to forget how important it is to validate a person’s preferences and feelings.
We don’t want to do that. Patients of our San Antonio plastic surgery office, both men, and women, receive the personal care they need to feel their best. Here, we want to discuss the value of body contouring in the life of the average guy.
Liposuction has widely helped individuals who have not been handed the lucky lottery ticket of good genes. Yes, we can put a lot of effort into maintaining a healthy weight. We can work out and eat well and will benefit greatly when we do. However, this doesn’t always work. For some men, the problem area is the flanks or midsection. A growing number of men are expressing dissatisfaction due to excess breast tissue, though, and these men need a voice. More than that, they need a viable solution to their aesthetic concern. Liposuction is that solution.
In addition to performing liposuction as a treatment for gynecomastia, cosmetic surgeons also often use this fat-reducing technique to refine the shape of a man’s jaw line (neck liposuction). In combination, liposuction and abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, help a man restore the tight, taut abs he once enjoyed.
Body sculpting is not a process that is reserved for men of a certain age. This is especially relevant when the issue at hand is gynecomastia. This condition affects teenage boys and young adults in a major way and needs to be handled appropriately to boost feelings of self-worth and confidence.
Liposuction and abdominoplasty are excellent procedures for any man to achieve or restore the quintessential “V” shape he wants to have. To learn more about either of these procedures, call our San Antonio office at 210-227-3223.
