Male Body Contouring
The ideal male body shape is considered to be trim and athletic-looking, with broad shoulders and a muscular chest, flat abdomen and narrow hip-thigh area. Liposuction is effective for contouring and sculpting the body to achieve this image when diet and exercise have failed.
Chest Contouring ( GYNECOMASTIA)
The appearance of the chest is important to many men. The goals for this area can vary from person to person. Often despite intensive chest exercises, there remain areas of fat or tissue on the chest especially underneath the nipple area. The medical term for this condition is called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia (Greek for “women-like breasts”) is actually very common, affecting 40-60% of men and many men seek correction of this condition.
Male pectoral implants are designed to define and shape the chest area. In men who cannot achieve desired results through exercise, the surgery can give the existing muscles a toned, enhanced look. For patients with congenital defects or loss of muscle in an accident or injury, the pectoral implant procedure can often reproduce a natural, even and symmetrical chest area.
Pectoral implants can help build self-confidence in individuals who were once embarrassed by their appearance. In the hands of a skilled surgeon, the result is the athletic, natural appearance of a more well-proportioned torso.
