The Best Options for Male Body Contouring

Many men seek out body contouring procedures just like women. Often, it’s because they struggle to get rid of fatty pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise. These pockets of fat are common, and one of the best ways to remove them is through the latest in plastic surgery techniques. Here’s what to expect from male body contouring with Dr. Perry.

Am I a Candidate?

The best candidates for body contouring are:

  • men whose gynecomastia doesn’t respond to non-surgical treatments 
  • men who are in good health and have maintained a stable body weight
  • men who don’t smoke or do drugs 
  • men with healthy expectations for their results 
  • men who do not have any medical conditions that could impact their safety

What are my best options for body contouring?

Gynecomastia Surgery

The gynecomastia procedure for men aims to reduce the swelling of breast tissues caused by factors like high male estrogen or testosterone levels, weight gain, certain medications, or heredity. Men often find this condition very embarrassing and it can impact their comfort when being at the beach or intimate with their partners.

Gynecomastia can be treated with the surgical removal of excess fat and breast tissue to reshape the chest and give it a more masculine appearance. Gynecomastia surgery can be performed with two different techniques. One uses liposuction while the other uses excision of the breast tissue. Dr. Perry uses one or both techniques based on some different factors.

Liposuction 

Liposuction uses small incisions and a surgical cannula to break up fat for removal with a gentle vaccuum. This is one of the most effective options for removing stubborn pockets of fat on areas like the stomach, hips, and groin area. Many men enjoy the definition that comes with liposuction to complement their gynecomastia surgery results.

Liposuction comes with minimal downtime, making it an effective option if you’re at your target weight. It can be used on many other areas of the body where men experience fat and poor definition like the jawline, arms, thighs, calves, and back.
