What Does Body Contouring Do?

All of the procedures described on this page can achieve significant improvement in overall appearance and body shape. Once the skin has lost its elasticity and hangs off the body, the only solution to improve it is to excise it with body contouring procedures. These surgeries can have a significant impact on a patient’s self-esteem and quality of life.

Why Choose Body Contouring?

One of the primary areas of concern for modern men is their health and the appearance of their bodies. An increasing number of men are resorting to surgical and non-surgical procedures as a complement to their daily health and nutrition routine. In addition to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, men are considering cosmetic procedures to address the issues that diet and exercise alone cannot produce. Dr. Hutchinson meets with all her patients individually and discusses all possible options in order to develop a surgical plan that is best suited to address their needs and expectations.

Liposuction for Men

Most younger men who are physically fit and healthy can still benefit from plastic surgery to address specific areas of their body — often the flanks (love handles) as well as the abdominal area. 

In many men, even those who are not overweight, fat deposits can occur on the flank area, leading to a suboptimal appearance in clothing as well as bathing suits, where the fat can be seen to bulge above the beltline.

In these cases, where the fat persists despite diet and exercise, liposuction can produce excellent results by removing excess fat in those areas.

Tummy Tuck and Panniculectomy

In some men — either those who are beginning to age and whose skin becomes increasingly lax, or those who have lost weight and have excess skin — a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) may be performed to remove excess skin and fat from the belly. In this procedure, additional skin and fat are removed from higher up in the abdomen, up to or even above the belly button.

Skin and fat that overhangs in the lower abdominal area is referred to as a “pannus”, and limited removal of the skin and fat in the lower abdomen is called a “panniculectomy”. This is a less extensive procedure than a tummy tuck.  

Both of these procedures can be performed in conjunction with liposuction in order to achieve optimal results.

Total Body Lift

In men who have undergone significant or massive weight loss — either with diet alone or as a result of gastric bypass procedure — excess loose skin may have been left behind which needs to be removed. This excess skin can affect the chest, arms, thighs, back, or circumferentially around the trunk. Read More About Total Body Lift!
