When it comes to plastic surgery, the majority of society will think of women having procedures to enlarge their breast size, the buttocks, and trim down their midsection. Rarely does the idea of plastic surgery, or any form of cosmetic enhancement at all, conjure up the idea of men and male aesthetic enhancement surgery. However, while it might not have crossed over into the consciousness of society yet, male aesthetic enhancement surgery is becoming more and more popular with each passing year, with the year 2019 being the absolute peak in the number of male aesthetic enhancement surgery procedures. Much of this is due to the newest advances and the ability for surgeons to be able to provide men with the high-level enhancement they want, while keeping it relatively discreet and hidden. It will still probably take a few years for men to get as open as women have become about surgery, but the industry is certainly trending that way. According to Dr. Richard Swift, considered the best plastic surgeon NYC men trust with their surgeries, the biggest change in cosmetic surgery for men has been the ability for surgeons to trim, cut, nip, tuck and enhance just as they have for women – whilst still ensuring that men maintain their overall masculine appearance and overall shape. In fact, with the incredible advancements in surgery, men’s plastic surgery is often designed to give men that masculine appearance they may be lacking in one area or another. And according to the Best Plastic Surgeon NYC has for men, Dr. Swift, no procedure is more indicative of enhancing masculine features than men’s body contouring – a procedure that was notoriously designed to trim down women’s bodies.
For the majority of men, the ideal physique is considered to be trim and athletic, with broad shoulders, a wide muscular chest, a tight flat midsection with visible abs, and narrow, cut hip area. According to Dr. Swift, the best plastic surgeon Midtown has to offer, love handles, stomach, chest, neck and chin, however, may be some of the most important areas for men to reshape. And as men age, not only does fat more readily accumulate in these problem areas, but it is highly resistant to exercise as well. Therefore, according to Dr. Swift, the best plastic surgeon NYC has to offer, the best bet to combat these fatty pockets is to perform liposuction in multiple areas, from the chest (if needed), midsection, flanks waist area, and wherever else it might be needed. Often, while it may not be the most invasive procedure, liposuction – when performed in excess, can lead to health issues for women, in some cases even death during their recovery. However, according to Dr. Swift, the best plastic surgeon Midtown has in practice, luckily for men, their bodies are less resistant to such issues and can handle a bit more liposuction. Another benefit for men is the fact that they tend to retain their skin elasticity longer than women, and the areas of fat beneath the skin tend to be firmer and more vascular than those of women. Because of these and other factors, liposuction in men is usually very effective – with a much easier recovery period.
For the men who will experience some minor loose skin, and in an effort to remove the last few centimeters of surface fat, that lipo couldn’t, men may want to follow up this procedure with body lifting surgery. Generally, according to Dr. Swift, the best plastic surgeon Midtown has to offer, when it comes to lift surgery, it is performed by surgically removing loose, excess skin, and a tiny bit of fat right beneath the surface, and then stitching it back together. In the case of the midsection for men, it would be the equivalent of a male abdominoplasty otherwise known as a tummy tuck. At this point many men of late have been going through a procedure known as abdominal etching – in which they perform a procedure similar to a tummy tuck, and lipo out fat along the midsection and either by using a series of implants or by shaping the remaining pad pockets to resemble “ripped abs”. And when given the proper time to heal, many men have amazing results and the appearance of washboard abs!
