Targeting Stubborn Fat: Liposuction and More for Men
Excess fat can accumulate over time in nearly any area of a man’s body, particularly around the midsection, under the chin, and on the chest. Even if you eat lean proteins and fresh greens and go to the gym consistently, you may discover some unwanted changes to your body contours as your metabolism and hormones change. Dr. James A. Matas, our board certified plastic surgeon, understands how frustrating these pockets of stubborn fatty tissue can be. He offers a wide range of advanced treatment options—including liposuction—that can be customized to suit your needs and goals.
Liposuction can be an excellent method of reducing fatty tissue, and at our practice we offer both traditional tumescent and state-of-the-art ultrasonic-assisted approaches. Plus, when liposuction is combined with other procedures, even more comprehensive results often can be achieved. For example, if you have submental fat (double chin) and your chin lacks projection, Dr. Matas can talk with you about face or necklift, liposuction, and chin augmentation, depending on your unique needs and expressed goals. If your main concern is your midsection, Dr. Matas may advise you to consider tummy tuck surgery rather than liposuction alone if there are indications of loose muscles and excess skin as well as fatty tissue.
One of the more delicate areas a man can gain weight is in the chest. Sometimes, excess fat and/or glandular tissue in this area can cause the appearance of enlarged breasts. We offer gynecomastia treatment options that address these common concerns so you can achieve a flatter, firmer look in this area.
Your comfort and safety are our priorities, and Dr. Matas considers the process of developing a treatment plan to be collaborative. We will never push a procedure, and the final decision of how to proceed will always be yours.
