Because men are different from women, a “one size fits all” approach to body contouring must not be taken, as a feminized result may occur. Dr. Steele fully understands the anatomic differences between the sexes and will customize your surgery to deliver a masculine silhouette after surgery. Options include the following:
Because male skin quality is significantly better than female skin, primarily due to avoidance of pregnancy related changes, most men will benefit from liposuction for removal of fatty deposits. Overweight patients, or those with significant intra-abdominal fat are not good candidates and require weight loss before surgery. Liposuction is an excellent technique for removal of love handles and sculpting the torso and abdomen. Gynecomastia is also treated effectively with liposuction.
Male Tummy Tuck
For those men who have lost significant weight and have stretch marks and loose skin in the abdomen, a male tummy tuck may be an option. Liposuction is usually combined with the tummy tuck to remove the fat in the love handles. The end result is tight, flat, athletic abdomen and torso. In more extreme cases of weight loss, a belt lipectomy may be necessary to address circumferential skin laxity.
