It’s easy to enjoy an active lifestyle here in San Diego, but for men who feel self-conscious about their body shape, going to the beach, spending an afternoon in Balboa Park or even hitting a favorite brewery with friends can feel a bit uncomfortable. Dr. Brown performs liposuction to help guys get the look they want and feel confident in and out of clothes.
Unsurprisingly, the types of areas men want to contour are not exactly the same as the ones that are top priorities for women. Let’s take a closer look at the most popular liposuction areas for men at our practice.
You hear the jokes about “man boobs” or “moobs” but the reality is that they’re not all that funny when you yourself are experiencing excess fatty tissue in your chest. This condition, known as gynecomastia, can affect men in several ways. In some cases, the extra fat may be primarily around the nipple, creating a “puffy nipple” appearance. In others, the tissue may affect the chest more generally, covering over the pectoral muscle and giving a more rounded shape.
Gynecomastia can affect guys during and after puberty as well as older men who have experienced weight fluctuations or other lifestyle changes. Liposuction, on its own or as part of male breast reduction surgery, can reduce excess fat in the chest to reveal better muscle tone and help you feel more confident.
It’s all too easy for stubborn fat to accumulate in your stomach area. Diet and exercise can help, but it’s often the guys who spend the most time working on their looks who are still frustrated by a bit of abdominal fat that just…won’t…go…away. Abdominal contour liposuction can sculpt your stomach to create a more defined look. If you have a larger amount of abdominal fat, lipo can be paired with a tummy tuck for a total transformation.
If a frustrating spare tire is covering up the results of your healthy diet and active lifestyle, you may be a good candidate for abdominal lipo to sculpt your stomach. Liposuction targeting the stomach area can help you achieve a more “cut” figure and give more definition to your abdominals. Lipo can also target frustrating love handles to further slim down the lower trunk.
Both the upper and lower back can be good areas to target with liposuction. Some men have upper back fat on or below the shoulder blades, which can cause “fat rolls” extending toward the armpit. And a large number of men have unwanted fat on their lower back, which may appear as an extension of those dreaded love handles.
Face and Neck
The most frequently treated areas for liposuction in the male face are the chin and cheeks. If you have facial fullness, a bit of “baby fat” in your 20s, or the start of a double chin in your 30s or 40s, liposuction can help you achieve the more defined facial features you envision.To learn more about your liposuction options from Dr. Brown, call us at 619-461-1500 or contact us online to schedule your consultation today!
