Learn About Body Procedures for Men
Plastic surgery isn’t just for women. In fact, more and more men are beginning to realize the benefits of cosmetic surgery to enhance their physique and confidence. Dr. Janiga understands that men have different concerns and goals than women when it comes to plastic surgery, and offers a range of treatments specifically for men. The following are some of the most popular body procedures you should know about:
Gynecomastia is a common condition among men and can range from mild to severe, resulting in enlarged breast tissue. Some cases of gynecomastia resolve on their own. However, others struggle with the condition for years without relief, despite dieting and exercising. Even the mildest cases of gynecomastia can cause feelings of self-consciousness! With male breast reduction, or gynecomastia surgery, Dr. Janiga can help you achieve a more toned chest. There are a few different techniques that Dr. Janiga offers, depending on your concerns including:
Sometimes stubborn fat is present in the chest area and can be resistant to working out. If your gynecomastia is caused by stubborn fat, Dr. Janiga will suggest liposuction techniques to improve your contour. Liposuction uses tiny incisions made in the chest area where a cannula can be inserted, breaking up and removing stubborn fat cells. The result is a flatter chest.
Besides stubborn fat, gynecomastia can also be caused by the breast tissue itself becoming enlarged. In this case, Dr. Janiga will perform a surgical excision of the unwanted breast tissue, using incisions hidden in the chest contours to remove excess, enlarged tissue. Liposuction techniques may be used at the same time for optimal results.
Chest contouring may sound similar to gynecomastia surgery, but the two techniques have different goals when it comes to enhancing your chest! While gynecomastia surgery addresses the unwanted breast tissue, chest contouring works to accentuate and define the pectoral muscles. Many men find it difficult to build these muscles and seek Dr. Janiga’s help with chest contouring. During chest contouring, Dr. Janiga can use liposuction around the muscles to create a more chiseled appearance, or he may suggest a fat transfer to add definition to the muscles.
Men might also choose to have chest contouring after losing a significant amount of weight. In these cases, there is often excess skin and tissue hiding the pectoral muscles. During chest contouring, Dr. Janiga will tighten the breast tissue and remove any excess skin to create a toned appearance.
Abdominal etching is another highly popular procedure for men and is a great option for those who have well-developed abdominal muscles, but struggle to remove the last bit of stubborn fat hiding them. This procedure involves liposuction techniques to define the muscles. Traditional liposuction techniques work to remove stubborn fat from an area, but abdominal etching takes it a step further, removing stubborn fat in a way that enhances the muscles underneath.
