Physiologically as men progress through their 30’s and 40’s there are typical changes that occur. A steady almost linear decline in testosterone levels, along with thyroid and growth hormone levels (among others) and a corresponding increase in body fat especially in the typical male trouble spots- tummy, love handles, pectoral region and chin.
This combined with the increase in work and family responsibilities over the same period of time, contributes to the production of a body shape that many men struggle against.
Sensible eating, regular exercise and a moderation of alcohol intake are the first steps to getting that great body back. However if these fail then the liposculpture for men procedure is a very sensible option for creating that great male figure.
In a female liposculpture one creates a beautiful shape by sculpting in the waist to produce an hour glass and then sculpting over the hips and outer thighs to produce gentle slender feminine curves.
In a male liposculpture by contrast the aim is to etch out the underlying muscle definition, to reveal the triangular slope of the back, to contrast the breadth of the shoulder against a tight narrow waist, and to uncover the pectoral muscles and the abdominal six pack.
Men usually respond very well to liposculpture because their thicker male skin, contains lots of collagen which contracts very well once the underlying fat has been removed.
When the surgeon has both the surgical skill and the innate artistic ability, dramatic changes in body shape can occur and beautiful male figures can be sculpted.
Following is a series of case studies which illustrate liposuction (liposculpture) for men in different age groups.
This slender young male in his mid-20s had a disproportionate amount of puppy fat around his abdomen, and love handles, which he found impossible to shift despite vigorous excercise. A 2.2 litre liposculpture was performed to remove fatty excess and define his underlying muscularity.
This man in his mid-30s had progressively gained fat on his chest, abdomen and love handles since his mid-20s. He also had male breast development (gynaecomastia). A 5.2 litre liposculpture was performed with particular emphasis on superficial undermining to ensure skin retraction. His abdomen and love handles were sculpted to define his underlying muscular shape and the breast glands and fat were also sculpted.
This man in his early 60s had a significant excess of fat across his love handles, which he found uncomfortable and embarrassing. A 4.2 litre liposculpture was performed to remove fat from his abdomen and love handles.
This man in his 50s presented with a large fatty abdomen and love handles. A 3 litre liposculpture was performed to remove his abdominal fat and define his abdominal muscles and back.
