Time affects everyone. As we age, the skin and tissues of the face and body stretch, sag and lose their elasticity. This inevitable process can affect the contours of the face and body. 

For men, this type of sagging is often evident in the abdomen, chest, neck, and jaw areas. As plastic surgeons, our job is to find new, safer, and better ways to meet the needs of our patients. In recent years, tremendous advances in fat reduction and skin tightening methods have made it possible to address many men's facial and body problems without invasive surgery. Such treatments provide an effective solution for those seeking results without weeks and weeks of downtime.

Thanks to the Internet and advances in plastic surgery technologies, patients are more aware of the many opportunities for facial and body contouring in men. Although women are still more likely to seek out and undergo plastic surgery than men, men have increasingly sought surgical options to enhance their appearance or help boost their self-esteem in recent years.

Still, the procedure is only effective if it fits your anatomy and needs. What worked for your friend may not work for you.

Read on to find out what treatments are most popular among men and what each aims to achieve as we hit the peak of bathing suit season this summer.

Gynecomastia Options for A Flatter Chest

The chest is one of the most common trouble areas for male body contouring. Gynecomastia refers to the fullness of the breasts caused by excess glandular tissue, fat, or a combination of both. This condition is widespread, and there are quite a few different ways to treat it. 

The right approach depends on the underlying cause. Liposuction is one of the most common treatment options for patients with breast fullness due to excess fat, also called pseudogynecomastia. For many men, the body changes with age, and you may start to store weight in different places like the chest.

Sculpting away upper body fat can lead to a trimmed and more masculine-looking breast. Liposuction of the breast can be safely performed under local anesthesia while only requiring minimal downtime and mandatory bed rest.

Surgical excision may be better suited if you are dealing with true gynecomastia, in which excess glandular tissue causes irregular chest growth. Some patients can still see results with minimally invasive male chest fat removal surgery alone, while those with more severe cases may require glandular removal.

Aesthetic Procedures for a Pronounced Jawline

A prominent jawline is a youthful-looking jawline. Unfortunately, some men are not born this way; others lose this definition with age. Furthermore, sitting in front of that computer screen and looking at yourself on video calls has caused many men to notice their jawlines and necks a lot more.

The area under the chin is a leading site of stubborn fat among men. Whether you wear a tie or not, accumulated fat on the neck and chin can make you feel less confident and look overweight. Many treatments offer ways to remove stubborn chin fat from non-invasive body contouring devices like laser liposuction to an injectable product called Kybella® to traditional liposuction procedures. It can be challenging to tell the different brand names apart due to so many options being on the market. That said, minimally invasive chin fat removal is still the best option for men looking to achieve dramatic, long-lasting results.

Provided your skin has sufficient elasticity or "tightness," these procedures can stand alone. However, in older men or men with loose or sagging skin on the neck, it may be necessary to combine a fat reduction method with a skin tightening procedure such as Renuvion. The latter uses radiofrequency energy to heat the tissue in the treated area through the same entry points made during fat removal. This causes controlled damage to the skin of the neck. The body's natural response to any damage is to produce more collagen and elastin. An increase in collagen and elastin, the basis of youthful skin, results in smoother, firmer, and tighter skin.

If you want the contours of your face or body to be a little tighter, make an appointment with the body contouring surgeon nearest you to discuss the best options. It's not just about looking better. Removing excess pockets of fat and tightening the skin can help you feel more vital, confident, and rejuvenated.

Abdominal Etching and Stomach Fat Removal

Abdominal etching treatments are designed to improve the definition of stomach muscles to create the six-pack look you've always wanted by removing the fat that covers your abs, waist, and obliques. Advanced techniques like AirSculpt remove fat with delicate precision using no needles, scalpels, stitches, or general anesthesia. These elements allow you to return to work just 48 hours following the operation.

Many of our male patients notice their abdominals are more defined just days after their procedure. For those with already-apparent muscles, we can target the creases between each individual ab to accentuate their look.

Regardless of your body goals, AirSculpt has you covered. Contact us today to learn more about our next-generation body contouring approach, which can get you sculpted in time for the peak of summer!
