Orlando Plastic Surgeon Discusses Liposuction for Men
Dr. James A. Matas of the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery discusses his multi-disciplinary approach to male body contouring, touching upon the duration of effects.
Orlando, FL — Regarding aesthetic enhancement, male patients often have singular anatomic needs and cosmetic goals, reveals Dr. James A. Matas. As an Orlando plastic surgeon, he says he customizes liposuction, body contouring, and other surgical and non-surgical procedures to best achieve the desired outcome. Excess fat, he explains, typically accumulates in specific areas of the male body such as the abdomen, neck, and chest. To address these regions and optimize results, Dr. Matas says utilizing more than one surgical technique may be necessary.
Liposuction, also called lipoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove pockets of fatty tissue from virtually any area of the body. Dr. Matas explains that this technique can help patients achieve a more aesthetically appealing contour in the targeted region(s), reducing excess fat deposits that are resistant to traditional diet and exercise routines. In many cases, he says liposuction alone may be sufficient to obtain the desired results. He adds that an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon can determine if an individual will benefit more from a single or multi-modality approach.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Matas says he develops a treatment plan tailored to the patient’s expressed goals and anatomic indicators. He suggests that men who present with excess abdominal fat and loose muscles may benefit from liposuction combined with tummy tuck surgery. Similarly, Dr. Matas says that submental fat on the jaw and neck, often referred to as a double chin, can be addressed with multiple procedures, depending on the singular needs of the patient. “If there is lack of chin projection, liposuction, neck/facelift, and a chin implant may all be necessary.” He adds that, in many cases, male body contouring procedures can be utilized virtually anywhere on the body, including the chest, legs, and back.
Dr. Matas states that one of the primary concerns for many patients is the duration of effects following a fat reduction operation. “Liposuction always has permanent results,” he explains. This is due to the fact that fat cells are removed during the procedure, he notes, and they cannot regenerate. However, the Orlando plastic surgeon qualifies his statement by saying that patients who gain weight may experience a change in body contour, either in the treated area or the surrounding regions, which may affect their appearance. As long as the individual’s weight remains stable, Dr. Matas says the benefits could continue indefinitely.
Ultimately, Dr. Matas believes that customizing a treatment plan to address the specific needs of men can achieve superior results than a one-size-fits-all or single-modality approach. He encourages patients considering liposuction or another cosmetic procedure to discuss their goals with a board certified plastic surgeon who has extensive experience in male body contouring.
