As we age, our skin and tissues on the face and body stretch, losing their elasticity in the process. As the skin loses its elasticity so does the body lose its contour. For men, this tends to show on the abdomen, chest, and neck/jaw juncture.
Today’s men and women are living a healthier lifestyle more than ever and are looking for non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures to be the last mile in their fitness and aesthetic goals. However, male and female body contouring procedures follow a different approach. Performing body contouring procedures for men requires a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who is an expert in the male anatomy and male body contouring procedures.
Here are the top options for Male body contouring.
When it comes to body contouring procedures, liposuction in Dubai tops the list. It is considered the gold standard for stubborn fat reduction. Liposuction removes fat via suction through a thin tube known as a cannula which is attached to a vacuum. One of the most common areas of stubborn fat that men often fail to tone at the gym or through exercises is the flanks. Liposuction not only removes the fat but tightens the skin (men’s skin tends to have better elasticity than women’s) with very minimal to virtually no scarring or downtime. Most of the time, only one treatment is needed to achieve the desired results.
CoolSculpting and SculptSure
A lot of men desire to have a taut, flat abdomen probably with visible abdominal muscles or a six-pack. With age, men can develop the gut even if they frequent the gym because fat tends to naturally be disposed around the abdomen. The two most popular non-surgical fat reduction techniques are CoolSculpting and SculptSure.
Both of these treatments work by destroying fat either through cold or heat. The destroyed fat cells are eliminated from the body through the lymphatic and metabolic systems. They, however, require multiple treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart to achieve the optimal results. Each treatment reduces the targeted amount of fat by about 20%.
Gynecomastia is the enlargement of the male breast tissue which is most commonly caused by the male estrogen levels being too high or out of balance with the testosterone levels in the body. This can easily lower the self-esteem of the man and lead him to avoid doing certain activities. Male breast reduction can be performed through liposuction, a surgical procedure involving removing the excess fat and skin, or both of the procedures depending on the underlying course and the amount of breast tissue that needs to be removed. This results in a more masculine chest appearance.
Aesthetic procedures for a youthful-looking jawline
A crisp jawline projects a youthful-looking jawline. Unfortunately, the male jawline tends to lose this definition with age, or some men are simply born without it. The chin/neck area is a prime spot for excess fat in men. Kybella is an injectable that was specifically designed to treat the submental fat around the chin area. CoolSculpting and SculptSure devices can also be used to decrease the amount of excess fat in this area. For men with excess amounts of fat, liposuction is probably the best option.
Men who have lax skin or are older may need to combine the fat reduction techniques with skin tightening modalities such as Radio Frequency skin tightening. This will not only result in a crisp jawline but also in smoother, tighter, and more lifted skin.
