Sculpt and contour the body for the utmost confidence with our surgical and non-surgical procedures.
It can seem like an impossible task to achieve the ideal chest appearance you’ve always wanted, but at the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, you’ve got options. Whether surgical or non-surgical, Dr. Whitney Florin can professionally recommend the best treatment plan for your unique body and goals. Dr. Florin is a top cosmetic surgeon in the Newport Beach and Orange County areas with over a decade of experience in crafting excellent, artistic results for his patients.
Men are one of the fastest-growing demographics in plastic surgery, and finding expert plastic surgeons who specialize in helping men achieve their aesthetic goals is easier than ever with the Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery.
Body contouring for men is a distinctly specific procedure that maintains a male anatomy while enhancing it to meet specific aesthetic goals. It is commonly performed to help men struggling with various body shape issues achieve a more athletic or defined look. This procedure typically involves combining liposuction of areas with excess fat along with fat grafting to parts of the body that would benefit from enhancement.
For patients with excess skin or extreme skin laxity, a tummy tuck may need to be performed in addition to liposuction to trim away excess skin for a smooth, firm appearance.
There are many reasons for seeking chest sculpting procedures, and many different body types that respond differently to different procedures. The good news is that body contouring is a highly versatile procedure, as Dr. Florin has multiple techniques and tools at her disposal to craft a truly individualized approach for whatever specific concerns you have. Whether with non-surgical or surgical methods, you can have a flat, defined chest and a firm abdomen with a variety of body contouring procedures.
You’re likely a good candidate for male body contouring if you have specific problem areas on the chest and abdomen that prevent you from having a defined, masculine appearance. These include stubborn, excess belly fat, and excess fat or tissue in the chest—a condition known as gynecomastia.
All good candidates for plastic surgery procedures should be in good overall health, not smoke, and have realistic expectations for what this procedure can accomplish. Dr. Florin may not perform surgery on people with a BMI of 30 or above, as risks of complications increase in patients who are overweight.
For many patients, we turn to a combination of the devices to create the masculine outcome you are looking for. There are so many details involved with liposuction and fat grafting that come together to give you natural results. By using the right tools and the right technique, Dr. Florin is able to create masculine contours that fit your body’s unique proportions and shape. Over time, we have learned the importance of creating natural shadows and shapes that perfectly complement the human body.
Liposuction is one of the most popular, minimally-invasive fat-reduction procedures available, and many men find great, effective results with this procedure. Liposuction is highly adaptable and can be used on many different areas of the body where stubborn fat exists—most commonly the abdomen, lower body, and chin.
With Dr. Florin’s high-definition liposuction process, you can achieve a more sculpted body contour with permanent benefits, as removed fat cells do not return, assuming you maintain your weight with diet and exercise.
Dr. Florin can utilize a number of liposuction techniques and devices to achieve results tailored to your condition and goals. During your consultation, you can discuss your options for fat transfer procedures for the face or body along with your liposuction procedure.
For people whose problems can’t be fixed with liposuction surgery alone, like when weight loss patients need to remove excess skin on the abdomen, a tummy tuck may be needed to achieve the best results.
A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that can remove excess fat, tighten underlying muscles, and excise extra skin. Tummy tucks are customizable, and Dr. Florin can determine the best incision pattern for your unique anatomy.
This procedure produces excellent results that tighten and flatten the abdominal profile, and the best way to maintain your sculpted abdominal shape is through a good diet and exercise routine. A tummy tuck can be greatly beneficial for fitness because it can tighten abdominal muscles that become loose and ineffective through weight gain.
The degree of definition or sculpting that Dr. Florin performs can be tailored to your body and your goals. Almost any part of the body can be targeted with high-definition liposuction but Dr. Florin most commonly sculpts the abdomen, flanks, and back, which people refer to as “360 liposuction.” On men, other areas that are commonly addressed with liposuction are the chest, shoulders, and arms.
To ensure your comfort and safety, Dr. Florin typically performs liposuction under general anesthesia. Your body contouring surgery can range from two to six hours depending on the complexity of the case and the specific surgical plan you and Dr. Florin create.
At each liposuction location, Dr. Florin will first infuse a numbing solution into the tissue called tumescent fluid. This fluid ensures the safety of your surgery while controlling your pain and bleeding while you are asleep. Then, using the agreed-upon method and device, she will sculpt your torso by removing strategic amounts of fat with liposuction. Once finished, incisions are closed meticulously to ensure the best appearance after recovery.
The recovery time and experience of this highly customizable procedure will vary based on the type and extent of your specific treatment plan. Generally, Dr. Florin recommends that you take a week or two off work and avoid driving for one week. You will need someone at home with you full time for up to a week after surgery. By two to three weeks, most patients feel much better and can return to work, even as the healing process continues.
We will send you home wearing a compression garment which you will wear full time for at least six weeks. Most patients wear compression full time for about two to three months and on an as-needed basis after that.
You can start light cardio at around one to two weeks if you feel comfortable doing so. You can resume more strenuous activity (such as weight lifting or running) at around four to six weeks. You can shower the day after surgery and can typically be submerged in water at around four to six weeks.
Postoperative (lymphatic) massage after liposuction is very important to help with swelling and healing. During follow-up appointments, Dr. Florin will show you how to massage yourself, however, most patients will benefit from professional postoperative massage.
Keep in mind that healing from liposuction is a process and it takes time to see your final results. Most patients begin to appreciate their body contouring results at about 6-8 weeks after surgery as a lot of the surgical swelling has gone down at that point. However, you will have some swelling present for 6-12 months after surgery.
A healthy lifestyle will optimize your results. Your long-term physique will only look as good as your habits. Although fat removed with liposuction is permanently gone, you can still gain significant weight after surgery, which can reverse the procedure’s optimal results.
During your consultation with Dr. Florin, you’ll discuss at length your goals for your body and whether surgical or non-surgical body contouring techniques are right for you. We offer a selection of effective procedures that can be specifically customized to your problem areas and intended results. Dr. Florin can also determine whether you are a good candidate for your chosen procedure, and will examine your treatment area for the skin’s elasticity and healing potential.
