What Male Body Contouring Procedures Create Definition?
Liposuction removes exercise and diet-resistant fat deposits in the body. For men, these deposits often develop in the abdomen (beer bellies), hips (love handles), arms, and chin. Liposuction is performed by making small incisions near the treatment area through which hollow tubes (cannulas) are inserted. These cannulas disrupt and suction out unwanted fat cells for a slimmer and trimmer look.
Lipo360 is performed on men to address the abdomen, love handles, and lower back. This liposuction technique addresses the circumference of the midsection to highlight men’s physiques with or without shirts.
Abdominal etching (using hi-def liposuction) is a technique where the liposuction cannula only removes small amounts of fat to create definition. The goal of abdominal etching is to achieve the look of natural abdominal muscles (the six-pack). By removing fat in specific locations, Dr. Sadeghi can mimic and create a highly athletic and chiseled midsection.
Fat grafting is a two-for-one procedure that harvests fat from unwanted locations (like the abdomen and love handles) and transfers it to places in need of additional volume. In men, this fat may be transferred to the chest to create the look of defined pecs or transferred to the face.
Some men undergoing liposuction may choose to save their fat in a fat bank until they are ready to transfer it to another part of their body.
Masculinization liposuction is commonly performed for female-to-male transgender patients looking to minimize their feminine curves and enhance masculine contours. Commonly, liposuction is performed in the breasts (for those with minimal breast tissue), hips, buttocks, and thighs.
Tummy Tuck Surgery
Much like women, men collect fat in their lower abdomen. This can lead to unflattering and undefined contours. Tummy tuck surgery is performed to remove unwanted fat and skin from the midsection.
Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by excess tissue and fat in men’s chests, giving them the appearance of women’s breasts. Gynecomastia surgery addresses this excess by using a combination of liposuction (for excess fat) and surgical excision (for excess tissue and skin).
CoolSculpting® is a non-surgical approach for fat removal. This treatment uses cooling technology to freeze unwanted fat cells in areas such as in the abdomen, hips, thighs, or neck, which are then naturally processed from the body.
Emsculpt® helps men achieve ideal gym bodies by strengthening muscles and creating definition. This non-surgical treatment used HIFEM® technology to stimulate muscles contractions, which in turn builds muscle. One 30-minute Emsculpt® session is the equivalent of performing 20,000 sit-ups or squats, meaning that men can achieve much more dramatic results than what is possible with natural exercise.
Most men require a series of four treatments.
