Getting Beach Ready: Male Body Enhancement

It is no surprise that most people find themselves feeling insecure with bathing suit season lurking just around the corner. At the beach or pool, the most common attire includes bikinis, short shorts, and tank tops – pretty much anything that reveals a lot of skin. Since getting a beach body cannot happen over night, many people diet and exercise long before summer hits so they can look and feel good when it comes time to slip into the latest summer fashions.

Although women seem to be the main ones who fear showing off their bodies during the hotter months, many men are also insecure about removing their t-shirt in front of people at the beach or pool.

Men Do Care About Their Bodies!

Whether they want to be more toned, have better-shaped pectorals, or have a more slim and muscular abdomen, many men have tried to address problem areas by practicing a healthy lifestyle. Even though diet and exercise are effective in weight loss and muscle toning, they cannot correct all features of the male body. For this reason, more men are seeking cosmetic enhancements to achieve a more masculine and toned physique.

Male Body Enhancement ProceduresBefore and After Gynecomastia Surgery

  • Fat reduction (liposuction): Some pockets of fat tend to be resistant to diet and exercise, especially areas such as the abdomen, flanks (“love handles”), chest, chin, and neck. Liposuction is a surgical technique used to target these fatty areas and improve the contours of the body.
  • Abdominal reduction (tummy tuck): Excess abdominal fat and loose abdominal muscles and skin are often difficult for men to target without the use of surgery. Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, can be performed on a man’s body to remove excess skin and fat, tighten the abdominal wall, and trim the waistline.
  • Muscle-enhancing surgery (implants): Some men feel as if their calves are lacking fullness or would like their chest more “bulked out.” Calf or pectoral implants can be used to enhance the shape of these muscles and improve the contours of the body.

By undergoing one or a combination of these procedures, a man can achieve a figure that is more slender, toned, and masculine. He can walk onto the beach or into the pool area and proudly take off his shirt and enjoy the summer weather with confidence.

Male Breast Reduction- A Simplified Approach

A common problem among adolescents and older men is the development of excess fat or glandular tissue in the male breast. An estimated 40-60% of men suffer from this condition, which can occur in either one or both breasts, at some time in their lives. The cause of gynecomastia is not well understood, but it is suspected that hormonal changes often play a role. Anabolic steroids that contain estrogen, marijuana use, and prescribed hormones are a factor in some instances. Massive weight loss can also result in hanging breasts that detract from a man’s appearance.

Plastic surgery offers a solution for men who are troubled by this embarrassing condition. Through the use of ultrasonic liposuction most cases of gynecomastia can be corrected. The excess skin shrinks and contracts following liposuction leaving a smooth and normal contour to the breast area. Only in severe cases will skin and glandular tissue be required to be removed to create a firmer, flatter, and better contoured male breast.

Male Breast Reduction- Treatment of Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia or excessive fat or glandular tissue in the male breast, is a common problem among adolescents and older men. An estimated 40 to 60 percent of men suffer from this condition. This condition can occur in one or both breast and can be seen at some time in their lives. The cause of gynecomastia is n0t well understood, but it is suspected that hormonal changes often play a role. Anabolic steroids, marijuana use, prescribed hormones and various medicines can contribute to this condition. Massive weight loss can also result in hanging breasts that detract from a man’s appearance.

Plastic surgery offers a solution for men who are troubled by this embarrassing condition. Through the use of liposuction and surgical procedures to remove skin or glandular tissue, plastic surgeons can create a firmer, flatter and better contoured male breast.

My preferred technique is liposution alone. This minimizes scarring and achieves a better contour to the breast. It the patient presents with loose breast skin, surgical excision of the skin may be necessary.

I have found this procedure to be extremely satisfying to the patients who have undergone this minor surgery.
