Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgery that’s perfect for the summer due to the amazing body fat, as well as cellulite, reduction it provides.  Liposuction can be performed on a diverse number of body parts: inner and outer thighs, legs, tummy, buttocks, neck, arms and even the face.  In men, this procedure places significance importance in removing the surplus of fat around the waist area.

Gynecomastia

Plastic surgery is applied to correct the enlargement of male breasts – otherwise known as Gynecomastia.  Often, the enlargement comes from a number of reasons.  A few of those reasons include: medical conditions or medication.  Often, this enlargement of the breasts is known to happen because of a hormone imbalance.  Estrogen (female) levels and androgen (male) hormones are not in perfect balance.  This condition can happen to one breast (unilateral) or two breasts (bilateral). It is often an embarrassing situation that leads a man to be extremely self-conscious of his body. The man will often avoid situations where they need to take their shirt off.

Gynecomastia will remove that excessive tissue, and skin, to produce a flatter chest.  A tiny incision is made on each side of the chest. If you’re worried about scaring, consider this, an incision across the chest wall is rarely needed.  The surgeon may also need to make a small incision under the nipple. The healing for both incision locations is undetectable.  A compression vest may be required post surgery.

6 Pack Implants

Getting a six pack is easier for some men than others. This is usually due to the time it takes to craft a strict exercise routine coupled with diet.  Thinning out the fat between the skin and muscles is what creates this sought after six pack look.  For many men, the washboard abdominal look is never obtainable due to their genetic build.  In that case, the 6 pack implants happens to be the surgical shortcut to achieve the look. This procedure is perfect for the summer.  You can go confidently into situations where you can take off your shirt.  The summer heat is perfect to show your more contoured, sleek-cut, abdominal six-pack implants.

Abdominal implants are created to mimic six pack abdominal muscles.  The aim is to define and contour.  The point of entry, for the surgery, is the belly button.  This is the place where a doctor will make a small incision.  The plastic surgeon will then places six, or eight, carefully sculpted individual implants.  These implants are made to be as natural to the touch as possible; they conform to the muscle and are flexible.  The flexibility perfectly accommodates your body’s activity and movement.

Bicep Implants

To gain access to the bicep muscle, a cut is made in the connecting tissue.  A pocket is then made just under the bicep muscle but on top of the long bone of the upper arm.   The surgeon is then able to insert the custom-made implant into the pocket that he/she created to suit a patient’s anatomical shape.

The best part about having your biceps is that it’s the most highly noticed muscle group by many! If you have nicely developed arms, people tend to want to know about your amazing workout routine. More opportunities to wear muscle shirts and other summer attire to show your natural bicep implants.

Facelift

The surgery calls for a well-concealed incision made along the hair’s temple.  This incision follows the area above the ear, follows along the lobe then makes a circular motion around the ear back to the initial incision.  This skin is then raised and pulled outwards.  Plastic surgeons tighten and reposition the connective tissue and underlying muscle. Any excess skin is then removed.
