When men want to build up their bodies, they usually go to the gym. At the gym, they lift progressively heavier weights in hopes of one day looking like a bodybuilder with four percent body fat. However, bodybuilding does not always work as desired and may not be the best method for reshaping the male body. Male body contouring to sculpt the abdomen and chest along with exercise and a healthy diet is a sure way to build a better body shape.
Sculpt Your Abdomen
Lifting weights may strengthen the arm muscles, but it will not necessarily do anything for the waist. Unfortunately, the waist is one of the main fat deposits for men. This is the reason why some men commonly develop a “spare tire” around the middle. To sculpt your abdomen with the best results, combine cardiovascular exercise with either liposuction or a tummy tuck.
- Liposuction: Liposuction removes unwanted fat from the abdomen, back, chest, and other areas to sculpt your body into a more desirable shape. Removing excess fat with liposuction also makes it easier to notice well-sculpted abdominal muscles. Dr. Spies offers ultrasound-assisted liposuction, which removes more fat than traditional liposuction.
- Tummy Tuck: Tummy tuck surgery tones the abdomen by cutting away excess skin, removing unwanted fat, and tightening the core (rectus) muscles so that your stomach looks leaner and more masculine. Although not that common in men, this procedure does provide a dramatic result. The trade-off is a scar on the lower abdomen that is well-hidden by bathing suits.
Sculpt Your Chest
Bench presses and other exercises can help to strengthen the pectoral muscles, but they will not eliminate excess breast fat or overgrown breast tissue. If your chest has excess breast tissue that contributes to a softer and more feminine appearance, gynecomastia surgery can sculpt a more masculine chest for you.
- Gynecomastia Surgery: Gynecomastia surgery removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin from the chest to reduce male breasts and to make your chest appear more masculine. Dr. Spies usually combines ultrasound-assisted liposuction with breast tissue removal for the best result. The scars are hidden and nearly imperceptible.
Bodybuilding isn’t for every man, and it may not give you the body shape you want. Instead of burning out pumping iron, build a better body shape the smart way with male body contouring procedures. Sculpt your abdomen and your chest with liposuction, tummy tuck surgery, and/or gynecomastia surgery to create the masculine torso and physique that you desire.
