What is Male Body Contouring?

Male Body contouring represents a number of cosmetic surgeries that can help to create a more defined silhouette. People who have recently lost weight or whose weight has changed frequently over time may want to receive body contouring at Chiseled to diminish fat, sculpt their body, and tighten their skin. Body contouring can also help people for whom diet and exercise no longer provide the results they desire. Plastic surgeon Dr. Younghoon Cho provides numerous body contouring choices for men, from tummy tucks, liposuction, and after weight loss surgery to fat grafting and laser skin tightening treatments. The possibilities to redefine and rejuvenate your physique are endless. Contact our office in Spring, TX near The Woodlands to schedule your body contouring consultation.

What Are The Benefits Of Male Body Contouring?

There are many reasons men in Spring, TX choose to undergo body contouring procedures. Patients may want to address a certain area of concern, such as loose stomach skin or stubborn fat deposits. Other men seek treatment to improve their overall physique or create more muscle definition. Other benefits include:

  • Create a slim and more sculpted silhouette
  • Improve muscle definition
  • Provide results when traditional diet and exercise have failed
  • Effective for multiple body areas
  • Surgical and nonsurgical options are available
  • Results can be dramatic and long-lasting

What is Ab Sculpting?

Dr. Cho is also pleased to offer ab sculpting, which uses a refined liposuction technique to enhance the definition of abdominal muscles. Dr. Cho normally uses liposculpture methods to liquefy and remove fat but might also use power-assisted liposuction to get a more defined result. To be a good candidate for ab sculpting, you should maintain a healthy, stable weight but have isolated pockets of fat in your stomach that don't respond to diet and exercise. 

Who is a Candidate for body contouring?

You may be a good candidate for body contouring if you have loose folds of skin, lost volume, or minor pockets of fat. Common areas of treatment include the chest, buttocks, abdomen, arms, back, and thighs. It's important to note that body contouring is not a weight loss solution. Men who are considering this procedure should already be at or near their goal weight. 

How is body contouring performed?

During your initial visit, Dr. Cho will develop a body contouring treatment plan that is unique to your needs. This might include both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Surgeries, like abdominoplasty, thighplasty, arm lifts, liposuction, and breast lifts usually require general anesthesia. The goal during these treatments is to create small incisions that can later be hidden by undergarments and to remove loose skin and small pockets of fat, revealing a smoother, thinner body. Nonsurgical treatments can be completed at Chiseled without sedation. These treatments include injectable fillers, FaceTite, BodyTite, CoolSculpting, and laser skin tightening.

What can I expect after body contouring?

If you're having a surgical procedure, you'll be sent home to rest and recover following your treatment. Nonsurgical procedures typically do not have any downtime. Occasionally, patients undergo many procedures at once on multiple body parts, which often requires an overnight stay in the hospital. Body contouring can help sculpt your body, so whether you've chosen nonsurgical or surgical treatments — or both — you can expect a slimmer, sexier silhouette.

What will be part of my body contouring surgery?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Cho will outline your unique treatment plan. We may schedule procedures in stages based on your overall health and the number of areas needing treatment. Typically, we'll group the stages by combining either the upper body parts (stomach, chest, arms, face, neck) or lower body parts (buttocks, thighs, knees, hips). This staging helps to lower the risk of complications, such as infection and blood loss. It also makes your recovery easier to manage.

Will I have scarring after my surgery?
Since incisions are required with surgical body contouring procedures, you will have scarring. However, Dr. Cho is an experienced plastic surgeon who makes every effort to reduce the appearance of scars by making the incisions in less visible areas, like the natural skin creases or folds of the body. Scar care management after surgery is important. Dr. Cho may prescribe skin ointments to speed the healing process. Over time, the scars will fade and blend in easier with your natural skin tone.

How long will my body contouring results last?
With proper care, your body contouring results can last for a long time. The best way to maintain your results is to maintain a healthy weight. Significant changes in your weight or pregnancy after your body contouring surgery can affect your results. Natural aging will continue, so you'll eventually see loose skin develop as you get older. Talk to Dr. Cho about tips that can help your results last longer.

How long does it take to recover from body contouring surgery?Recovery time from body contouring surgery varies depending on the type and extent of the procedure performed, as well as individual healing factors. In general, patients can expect some degree of swelling, bruising, and discomfort following surgery, with most returning to light activities within a week and gradually resuming normal activities over several weeks to months.

What factors should be considered when choosing a body contouring procedure?When choosing a body contouring procedure, it's essential to consider factors such as the specific areas of concern, the amount of excess fat or skin present, desired outcomes, recovery time, and potential risks and complications associated with each procedure. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Cho can help determine the most appropriate treatment plan based on individual needs and goals.

How soon can patients expect to see results after undergoing body contouring surgery?The timeline for seeing results after body contouring surgery varies depending on the procedure performed and individual healing factors. Patients may notice initial improvements shortly after surgery, but final results typically become more apparent as swelling subsides and the body heals over the course of several weeks to months. Full results may continue to improve over time as the body adjusts to its new contours.

Are the results of body contouring permanent?
The results of body contouring can be long-lasting, especially if patients maintain a stable weight and adopt a healthy lifestyle. However, factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can affect the longevity of the results. Continuing to eat a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and avoid smoking can help preserve the outcome of the procedure.

How much does body contouring surgery cost?
Your cost for surgical body contouring will depend on what's part of your personalized treatment plan. During your consultation, Dr. Cho will listen to your needs and wants before performing a physical exam. He can then give you recommendations and develop your treatment plan. Once your plan is made, Dr. Cho can estimate your costs and review your payment options. Chiseled accepts several methods, including low-interest financing, which we can help you find.

Will insurance pay for my body contouring surgery?
Although most cosmetic surgeries are not typically covered by health insurance, it is possible that body contouring could be eligible for insurance coverage. When excess skin is the cause of medical conditions, like reoccurring infections, you may be able to apply for reimbursement from your health insurance. Coverage varies based on your carrier and individual policy, but if you want to use your insurance, tell Dr. Cho in your initial consultation. A member of our team at Chiseled can help you work with your insurance to maximize your coverage.
