Men, Get your Shirt off this Summer with Confidence

September 01, 2014

Men might not like to admit it, but we are quite self-conscious about the way that we look. We might not show it all of the time, but if we aren't feeling great about our bodies, it is going to affect every other aspect of our lives. Carrying extra fat can be detrimental to a man's self esteem and confidence.

Both women and men can store surpluses of fat on their bodies, but they store it in very different places. Women are predisposed to storing excess fat in their thighs, buttocks, hips and waist. Men, on the other hand, tend to have fat concentrated in their "love handles" (waist line), "guts" (stomachs) and "man boobs" (chest).

There are measures that you can take to reduce the storage of excess fat in these problem areas. You can eat a well balanced, calorie controlled diet. You can avoid drinking too much alcohol and hitting the gym a few times a week would certainly help. Even if you do all of this, you might be left with a few stubborn problem areas that no matter what you seem to do, just never go away.

If you are one of those men who has tried all of the right things, but is still embarrassed to take your shirt off at the beach, there is help for you. You would be amazed at what liposuction could do.

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is the permanent removal of fat cells from the body. We only have a select number of fat cells in our body and once they are removed, they cannot return.

A local anesthetic is applied to the area to ease discomfort. A small incision is then made in the problem area and a small tube called a cannula is inserted. The fat cells are then extracted under vacuum. These problem areas are reshaped and resized to achieve your desired look.

What are the most common liposuction treatments for men?

Gynaecomastia | Man Boobs

You would be surprised how many men suffer from this affliction. Excess fat can be stored in the chest giving men the appearance of having breasts. This is not the look that most men would like to achieve.

Liposuction can be used on the chest to remove the fatty deposits and get rid of your "man boobs". If excess glandular fatty tissue is involved then it might be necessary to remove the tissue with surgery. This is a very straightforward process and recovery time is quite quick.

Love handles and gut

For some men, no matter what they do, they can't seem to get rid of that fat around their waists. This can be particularly frustrating if you do not carry any extra fat anywhere else on your body. It can make you look very disproportioned.

Liposuction can be performed on this area with great results. With just a little recovery time, you can be whipping your shirt off with pride.

If you feel like no matter what you do, you can shift that last little bit of fat, liposuction might be a viable alternative for you. Make an appointment with one of our specialists who can talk you through all of your options.
