Body & Trunk
The ideal male body is typically considered to be thin and athletic, with broad shoulders, a trim waistline and a flat abdomen. However, fat deposits often build up in the flank, abdomen, breast area and neck and chin as men age. These areas can be resistant to diet and exercise, and many men choose liposuction and/or surgical removal of excess skin to address these issues, particularly after significant weight loss.
A surgical abdomen reduction combined with liposuction can help you achieve a more youthful, firmer looking body.
A body and trunk procedure:
- Reduces fat deposits in the abdomen, “love handles,” breast area or neck and chin
- Removes excess skin from these areas, allowing tighter skin and sleeker appearance
- Trims the waistline for a slimmer, more athletic profile
Candidates for this procedure are individuals with soft tissue looseness in one or more body areas, healthy adults who do not have medical conditions that may interfere with healing, non-smokers and people committed to leading a healthy lifestyle.
The results of a body or trunk procedure are immediately noticeable, and recovery times vary. When undergoing a full abdominoplasty, you may not be able to return to work for a full four weeks. As you age, it is natural for the skin to lose some firmness, but the improvement of the procedure should be relatively permanent if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and control your weight.
