The most common area of concern for men is the abdomen. As Dr. Newall says, “Bellies are to men, as thighs are to women. It’s their problem area.” This is because men generally store most of their fat around the waist. Genetics also plays a big role in the appearance of the male chest and abdomen. Cutting fat and toning ab muscles can give ideal results for some men, but others just genetically aren’t made to be “ripped.”
Through liposuction and his expertise in the art of liposcupture, Dr. Newall gives the abdomen the chiseled, athletic appearance of “washboard abs.” He accomplishes this by strategically removing fat from the abdomen, waist, and love handles. By suctioning fat from around the individual ab muscles, he can reveal six-pack abs and a more pleasing contour for the stomach.
The best candidates for this procedure are those who are at a reasonably good weight, but have areas of fat that are unresponsive to exercise and diet. Abdominal etching is often able to give the abdominal muscles much more pronounced definition than what could be achieved by spending hours at the gym.
This procedure is usually performed in less than an hour under general anesthesia. Patients can resume normal daily activities in 10-14 days after surgery, but Dr. Newall recommends no vigorous exercise for 2-3 weeks.
To maintain balance in the torso, many patients have chest contouring along with abdominal liposuction or etching. If you suffer from Gynecosmatia – the condition of excess breast tissue in males – you are likely a candidate for Dr. Newall’s male chest contouring procedure. Dr. Newall is able to remove excess breast tissue for men that are concerned with the appearance of “man boobs” or fat deposits in the chest.
