Did you know that male plastic surgery has increased by an incredible 325% since the turn of 21st century? Each and every year we are seeing more men get plastic surgery yet, when we talk about plastic surgery, we are still often just talking about women.
Things are quickly changing though! Modern men aren’t shy about looking good. These days, guys are happy to invest time at the gym and eat a clean diet. Sometimes, however, that’s just not enough. If you’ve got a gut, “man boobs,” or love handles that just won’t budge, it’s time to check out cutting edge body contouring techniques.
How many men have spent hours at the gym trying to create their dream body only to be disappointed? On top of that, as we age, fat builds up around the abdomen, flanks, and chest areas. To maintain or build muscle while losing fat in these areas can be impossible for some men.
The good news is that liposuction can remove fat from anywhere and everywhere. Stubborn areas that are resistant to diet and exercise can be slimmed down in a matter of minutes. As an added bonus, men have a tendency to retain their skin elasticity and firmness much longer than women do, which means that they get far better results from liposuction.
Gynaecomastia, or man boobs, is a very common condition. In fact, half of all adolescent boys and one-third of older men are dealing with this issue. And, it’s not just overweight men and boys. Gynaecomastia has a range of causes including genetics and hormones. It can also be caused by certain types of medicines.
In some cases, liposuction can eliminate excess fat around the chest. For more severe cases, gynaecomastia surgery can be the answer. During gynaecomastia surgery, fat in your chest is removed along with excess skin. It’s a quick procedure with no overnight hospital stay that can be transformative to both your body and self-esteem.
Since most men carry the bulk of their excess fat in their mid-section, abdomen reductions are a very popular option for guys. An abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is an ideal option for removing excess skin around your stomach, reducing your waistline, and tightening up loose abdominal muscles.
Did you know that there are two different types of abdominoplasty, or tummy tucks? A mini tummy tuck is a great option for reducing fat beneath the belly button. This type of procedure has minimal scarring that is easily hidden in swimwear or underwear. A full tummy tack, on the other hand, is a more transformative procedure that can slim down your entire mid-section while leaving a slightly larger scar.
For men who have spots that don’t budge with diet and exercise but are nervous about having surgery or simply don’t have the time for it, non-surgical fat reduction procedures are a dream come true. For a fraction of the time and cost involved in liposuction, you can safely and effectively eliminate fat without going under the knife. Two incredible new technologies on the market are CoolSculpting and VelaShape. CoolSculpting freezes fat away while VelaShape III banishes fat with heat.
With no anaesthesia, incisions, or recovery time, CoolSculpting can transform your body. The CoolSculpting technology works by freezing and destroying fat cells. Since your fat cells are more sensitive to cold than the surrounding tissue is stronger, CoolSculpting can target and break down fat without affecting the surrounding nerves and blood vessels.
VelaShape III is another non-invasive body contouring treatment used that is ideal for reducing fat in your stomach and waist. Using infrared, bi-polar radio frequency, pulsed vacuum, and massage rollers, the technology uses heat to reduce fat while giving you the feeling of warm massage.
