Men Can Benefit Too! Procedures that Prove Plastic Surgery Isn’t Just for Women

Men Can Benefit Too! Procedures that Prove Plastic Surgery Isn’t Just for Women in Houston & Katy, TX

Published 04/25/2017

More than 1.2 million men opted to improve their appearance with plastic surgery in 2015, and these numbers are increasing each year. With men’s cosmetic procedures making up ten percent of all procedures performed—one thing is clear: men are definitely embracing plastic surgery. Thus, it is not surprising that Body By Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics’s Dr. Ravi Somayazula continues to see an increase in the number of men coming to his Houston practice. Male Breast Reduction, body sculpting, and abdominal contouring are popular procedures amongst men. 

Male Breast Reduction

While men may not openly discuss it, many struggle with excess fat around their chest.  This can create the appearance of male breasts. Enlargement of the breasts, known as gynecomastia, makes many men feel uncomfortable wearing tight shirts or going shirtless. Male breast reduction is an extremely effective procedure that works in correcting this exact problem. By reducing the excess fat, Dr. Ravi Somayazula is able to give men a more defined and chiseled chest.  Many men have worked hard in the gym doing bench presses and other exercises to rid themselves of this problem area, but unfortunately this may not be enough.  While this can be a source of frustration, it’s a relief to know there is a solution.

Body Sculpting

Liposuction has been a great procedure of choice for many men looking to fine tune their physique.  The removal of these suborn pockets of fat results in more confidence and self-assurance.  As long as body weight is maintained, the results of liposuction can be lifelong.  For some men, no amount of time spent at the gym can give them the muscle definition they crave. While we don’t recommend that you stop going to the gym, there is no harm in consulting with Dr. Somayazula about your options. Many men opt to use their own fat to enhance and shape certain areas of their bodies.  This includes their chest/pec muscle, abdomen, buttocks, and calves.  Fat transfer is a safe and popular technique where Dr. Somayazula liposuctions specific areas of the body and then uses that purified fat to contour other problem areas. 

Abdominal Contouring for Men

Most people think a tummy tuck (also known as an abdominoplasty) is a plastic surgery procedure only intended to give women a slim, contoured, and sexy physique. Weight fluctuations, aging, and other factors can also impact men just as much as they impact women. This can cause men to have excess skin and fat at their abdominal area and a healthy diet and exercise may not always reverse that. Procedures like liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are equally beneficial to men.  Dr. Ravi Somayazula tailors each tummy tuck surgery to his patient’s specifications and goals.  Abdominal contouring for men helps many of our male patients finally achieve a flat and sculpted mid-section.   

While men may come to Body By Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics unsure of whether plastic surgery is right for them, they leave certain with their decision—they too can benefit from cosmetic enhancement. For more information on any of the procedures above, or to schedule a consultation, please contact Dr. Ravi Somayazula’s Houston office today.
