Men, Weight Loss and Cosmetic Surgery

The Male Body and Weight Loss
Every person is different, and everyone loses weight in his or her own unique way. That said, there tend to be some commonalities guys share when they shed pounds. More so than women, men often gain a great deal of fat in their abdominal area, stretching the skin dramatically. Guys frequently suffer from man boobs that persist after weight loss as well. In contrast, women’s trouble spots tend to be widely distributed from the face to the knees.
Procedures You May Want to Consider
Male breast reduction is the leading form of cosmetic surgery we perform for men as they approach or achieve their goal weight. Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, is another popular choice. In both cases, it’s very typical for guys to have redundant skin that needs to be eliminated. Fat pockets can persist in both areas, and breast gland tissue may have grown, triggered by the hormones fat cells produce.
Depending on a person’s age and skin quality, facelift surgery can be a good option after weight loss for tightening up cheeks and jowls. We also offer arm lifts and thigh lifts for the right patient.
Benefits of Cosmetic Surgery After Weight Loss
If you have undergone massive weight loss, you obviously care about your health. You have reason to feel proud of your achievement—reaching an ideal weight is not easy!
Even if getting healthy motivates you as much or more as improving your appearance, you don’t need to feel that cosmetic surgery is a frivolous move. People who lose dozens of pounds realize many benefits of plastic surgery after weight loss. Skillfully performed, it can eliminate chafing skin, rashes and infections. It can lift a few more burdensome pounds from your frame, reducing aches and pains.
