Men are increasingly relying on plastic surgery to refine the results of their exercise routines. Since 1997, plastic surgery for men has more than tripled, and abdominal surgeries, such as the male tummy tuck, are the most popular procedures. Let’s face it — a sculpted midsection is extremely attractive on a man, but getting a chiseled abdomen takes a great deal of work and some really great genetics. Working out is the best way to tone and tighten the abdominal muscles, but not everyone can achieve the ultimate six-pack abs without a little extra help.
More Than Just Liposuction
When men first come to Kole Plastic Surgery Center for ideas on how to contour their bodies, they typically believe that the only option is liposuction to completely remove the fat. Fortunately, fat-reduction technologies have evolved over the years, and patients have many more options, both surgical and non-surgical. These advances not only benefit the patients but also open the door for plastic surgeons to develop innovative techniques that allow for more refined body contouring results. Cosmetic surgeons no longer simply remove unwanted fat but sculpt and transfer the existing fat. For men, this means that a skilled plastic surgeon can use a three-step approach to create the contours of six-pack abs. The technique works best on men who are already fit but have some remaining bulges and pockets of fat. First, excess fat is removed with liposuction to flatten the abdominal area. Second, Dr. Kole uses a special ultrasound device to sculpt the remaining fat and create the contours of your six-pack abs. Third, he uses the fat that was harvested via liposuction to add volume to areas that need more definition.
Work Those Abs
Genetics not only determines muscle development but also how visible the muscles are on the outside of the body. Two men can be equally strong, but one man may have more visible contours simply because of his genetics. Maintaining a strong core is important, even if no one can see the shape of your muscles. Therefore, abdominal contouring is not a replacement for exercise, but rather a cosmetic procedure that augments the results of your workout routine.
What If I Don’t Want Surgery?
Not every man is willing to undergo surgery to have a sexy, toned midsection, so The Kole Plastic Surgery Center offers several options that all produce exceptional results. For men who want a non-surgical solution, we offer CoolSculpting®. The treatment works by freezing fat cells from the fat layer under the skin. The process permanently destroys the fat cells which are then eliminated naturally by the body. The treatment is performed in 35 minutes without incisions and downtime.
Choosing The Best Option
CoolSculpting® is recommended for men who want moderately defined abdominal muscles. For those who want dramatic improvement, male liposuction is the best option. You will need to take three to four days to recover at home after your abdominal contouring. In both cases, you will need to continue to exercise regularly to maintain the results. The fat cells are permanently removed from your abdominal area, but your body will find another area to store excess fat if you don’t maintain your weight. You could essentially end up with six-pack abs and a flabby backend if you fail to eat and exercise properly.
Genetics determine how your body looks with exercise, and you may not always like the results. If you struggle with achieving the ultimate six-pack abs, abdominal contouring at the Kole Plastic Surgery Center Center with Kole Plastic Surgery may be right for you.
