Achieving a More Masculine Figure with Liposuction
By Constance M. Barone, M.D. on May 30, 2015
While plastic surgery procedures are more commonly performed on female patients, Dr. Constance Barone has seen a number of male patients that wish to eliminate signs of aging or improve their figure. One of the most requested plastic surgery procedures among our male patients is liposuction, which can tone the body by eliminating excess fat. Male liposuction offers our San Antonio patients a safe and effective means of creating a more masculine figure that can boost your self-confidence.
One of the reasons that liposuction is such a popular cosmetic procedure is that it offers such versatility. Liposuction can be performed on virtually any area of the body in order to eliminate excess fat and improve body contour. Below are some of the most common areas of liposuction treatment for our male patients:
- Abdomen: It can be difficult for men to reduce their abdominal fat content enough to reveal the muscles, or six-pack abs. What many men quickly learn is that, even with good eating and exercise habits, small deposits of fat may remain on the stomach. Some men hold onto excess fat in the abdominal area that fails to respond to even the most vigorous exercise routines. Liposuction of the abdomen can get rid of stubborn fat deposits and help men achieve a tighter and more toned midsection.
- Flanks: Fat can accumulate in the flanks, causing love handles or excess fat that sits along the sides and hips. This can make it difficult to fit into pants and be a source of self-consciousness. Dr. Barone can eliminate love handles by performing liposuction along this area. She will use advanced liposuction techniques to suction fat out of the body and produce a more masculine body contour.
- Neck: The neck is another popular area of the body for male patients. Excess fat along the neck can result in what is known as a double chin. This can make the patient look older in appearance, and can give the face and neck a heavier look that gives the allusion of being overweight. Liposuction requires only very small incisions and can be safely performed on the neck area to get rid of excess fat and produce a slimmer and more youthful appearance.
- Chest: The chest is one area of the body that most men are particularly sensitive about. Excess fat in the chest can make men feel like they have a more feminine appearance. Liposuction is often sufficient enough to provide these males with the male breast reduction they desire in order to create a more toned and masculine chest.
Dr. Constance Barone understands that improving self-image is a universal desire. She offers a wide range of cosmetic procedures that are appropriate for both men and women who are looking to enhance their appearance.
