One of the toughest things to deal with as a man, especially as we age, is the fact that are body simply isn’t what it used to be! From not being able to play the same sports we used to, to not being able to lift the same weights in the gym and simply not looking as young and lean as we used to.
The Problem with Aging
A major issue with that many men will face as they enter their late 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s, is consistently lower testosterone levels. Testosterone is a vital male hormone that makes men, men – allowing them to burn fat and accrue muscle mass as well. As this hormone becomes depleted, men will tend to lose energy, and no longer be able to achieve as much of a well-toned, strong physique, especially along the chest and abdomen area. At Goals we offer a number of aesthetic enhancement procedures designed to help restore the male physique back to its former glory, and give you the youthful, strong appearance you’ve always wanted. Some of our most popular body procedures include:
Gynecomastia & Nipple Reduction
One of the most common issues men, both young and old, will often deal with is the presence of gynecomastia. This is a condition in which men will experience enlarged breast tissue, especially towards the nipple area. The most common causes for such a condition include genetics, hormonal fluctuations, and overall weight gain – most often these issues will worsen as we age. the gynecomastia procedure allows men to reduce the overall size of their breast tissue, and create a more masculine, firm chest area.
As part of many gynecomastia treatments, men will often require the size of their nipples to be reduced – especially common for those who have recently undergone a massive weight loss. Whether its genetically attained, or an issue with abnormally stretched skin – dealing with such issues can be quite a drain on an individual’s self-confidence and cause them to dread wearing tight shirts or removing their shirt entirely. With the right size and shape, you can get your self-esteem back. For more information or to find out if gynecomastia surgery is right for you, be sure to contact Goals Plastic Surgery today.
For those of us who may be holding some excess belly fat, or fat across other areas of the body – liposuction provides the perfect solution! Between a busy work and home schedule, many of us may not have the time for a consistent workout schedule. And as we age, fat along certain stubborn problem areas such as the abdomen, hips, chest, and arms, may be far more difficult to lose. Lucky for us that liposuction can target pretty much any area of the body we need.
While in years past implant procedures were popularized across the country, patients today prefer a much more natural look for certain types of enhancement and for men this allows them to maintain their masculine appearance. From chin additions, and other facial additions, to the calves, chest and even the abs, fat transfers have become one of the IT procedures for men! We use liposuction to remove the fat from a donor location like the midsection and inject it into the desired area for enhancement!
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty as the medical community might refer to it as, is a procedure that can help you to remove that excess skin and a slight amount of belly fat to tone and tighten your midsection in a way no other method can provide! Often, after a period of large weight loss, an individual may develop loose handing skin, especially along the midsection and to remove this excess skin the tummy tuck works best. In addition to excess skin, the tummy tuck can help us to remove certain amounts of subdermal belly fat, however it is important to note that this isn’t a fat loss procedure, but rather a toning procedure.
