Part 2: Men’s Body Treatments
In our previous blog, we explored some of the most effective treatments both surgical and non-surgical to help revitalize and restore your facial appearance. However, it goes without saying that many mens’ cosmetic frustrations are not relegated to the face. Instead, it is important to explore some of the different surgical procedures and cosmetic treatments that can help you contour your body to achieve the masculine physique that you’ve been looking for.
Treatments for the Male Body
Whether you struggle with excess fat, skin, or hair in unwanted parts of your body, there is a procedure that can help you look and feel comfortable with your body aesthetic. While many cosmetic concerns that men struggle with are the result of age, other causes include genetics, lifestyle, and life events (such as weight loss). Below are some of the most trusted and effective treatments for your body.
If you struggle with stubborn fat that just won’t go away with a traditional diet and exercise, then CoolSculpting® may be the option for you. CoolSculpting® uses a process called cryolipolysis to freeze the fat away in the targeted area. The CoolSculpting® applicator targets stubborn fat cells without harming any of the surrounding tissue, muscle, or skin. Once the fat cells are dead, they are naturally eliminated from your body over time, creating a more contoured physique.
Nearly every man desires the muscular physique that they see in their favorite male celebrities. And while it may seem that you need to spend hours and hours of your life at the gym, the reality is that you can achieve many of the same results without lifting a single weight. EMSCULPT® is a revolutionary treatment that causes muscles to contract at a rapid pace. For the EMSCULPT® treatment, HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology causes target muscles to contract up to 20,000 times. This means that you can achieve the same results as 20,000 crunches, curls, or other exercises all while you lay down and relax. In addition to building muscle, EMSCULPT® can help reduce the amount of fat present in the treated areas.
Laser Hair Removal
Certain types of hair help to create the masculine appearance—a beard, a full head of hair—but hair in unwanted places can be frustrating. Whether you are looking to have a hairless chest or back, laser hair removal can help you achieve the aesthetic you desire. At Synergy Face + Body, we are proud to use the Clarity II™ system. For this procedure, laser light is directed at the treatment area to heat up and destroy the hair follicles. Once this treatment is complete, you can look forward to smoother, hairless skin.
Liposuction has been one of the most trusted and effective plastic surgery procedures for years, and when you see the stunning results achieved from this minimally invasive procedure there’s no wonder why. Liposuction is one of the most versatile procedures because it can be used as a standalone procedure or combined with other surgical options. This fat-reducing procedure can be used on nearly any part of the body to permanently get rid of subcutaneous fat.
Your cosmetic surgeon will make small incisions in the treatment area. A cannula (a thin tube) will be inserted through the incision to loosen any stubborn pockets of fat. This fat is then suctioned out of the body through the cannula to give you a more trim and contoured appearance. Not only can liposuction surgery help you achieve the physique you desire, but you can feel more confident with the way you look.
One of the most embarrassing cosmetic concerns that many men struggle with is gynecomastia (excess breast tissue, which creates the appearance of breasts in men). Having “man boobs” can make many men feel self-conscious, causing them to refrain from participating in some of their favorite activities. One of the most frustrating parts of gynecomastia is that it is caused by a hormonal imbalance, which means that diet and exercise cannot address or correct this issue. However, gynecomastia surgery can help you achieve the chest aesthetic you desire.
Gynecomastia can be performed through liposuction, surgical removal of breast tissue, or a combination of both. For men who struggle with severe gynecomastia, excess skin may be surgically removed, and the nipple may be repositioned. Once your gynecomastia surgery is complete, you can look forward to having the masculine chest that you have always dreamed of.
