About Male Body Contouring

Male body contouring helps men achieve a more toned physique. Designed to address excess fat or loose skin in certain bodily areas, such as the arms, abdomen, thighs, or love handles, male body contouring can include a variety of procedures performed individually or in combination to create a more defined and masculine appearance, boost confidence, and improve overall quality of life.

Male Body Contouring Procedures

Liposuction

Liposuction is an excellent treatment option for men who want help addressing stubborn pockets of fat. Liposuction can target the exact areas you would like to see results for the sculpted, chiseled look you've been chasing in the gym.

Tummy Tuck

If you have excess skin or fat in your abdomen, a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty can remove it and tighten the abdominal muscles. The procedure begins with an incision along the lower abdomen, removing excess skin and fat to create more toned and defined masculine-looking abs.

Fleur-De-Lis Abdominoplasty

This specialized form of tummy tuck surgery addresses excess skin and fat in the central abdomen. By making a vertical incision in the center of the abdomen, in addition to the traditional horizontal incision made during a regular tummy tuck, excess skin and fat can be removed from the upper abdomen, resulting in more ab muscle definition.

Arm Lift

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, removes excess skin and fat from your upper arms. Dr. Buchanan makes an incision along the underside of the arm, through which he will remove the excess skin and fat. He will tighten and reposition the remaining skin, resulting in better arm muscle definition.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift removes excess skin and fat from the thighs, resulting in a more toned and contoured appearance. Dr. Buchanan will make incisions in the inner thigh or along the crease of the buttocks, through which he will remove the excess skin and fat. He will then tighten and reposition the remaining skin, resulting in improved thigh contours.

How Much Does Male Body Contouring Cost?

The cost of Tampa male body contouring can vary significantly depending on the complexity of your case. Health insurance companies generally do not cover facelift surgery since it is considered a cosmetic enhancement procedure. It's worth noting that the total cost of the procedure may include:

  • Anesthesia fees
  • Operating room costs
  • Compression garments for post-surgery
  • Surgeon fees

Additionally, you may need to consider the cost of:

  • Blood tests or other pre-operative testing
  • Medical clearance exams
  • Prescription medications

The cost of the procedure may also be influenced by factors such as the surgeon's experience and reputation, the techniques used for the procedure, and the complexity of the case. Additionally, the location of the surgeon's practice can also impact the cost, as larger cities tend to have higher operational costs.

If you are considering male body contouring but are concerned about the financial aspect, you can speak to Dr. Buchanan or one of the VIVIFY staff members about financing options. They offer financing plans to help patients achieve their surgical goals.

Recovery

Recovery from male body contouring procedures can vary depending on how extensive your procedure is and your overall health. Some mild bruising, swelling, and discomfort are commonly experienced in the treated areas immediately following the operation. Dr. Buchanan may prescribe pain medication and compression garments to help manage these symptoms. 

Patients must avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for several weeks following the procedure to allow their bodies time to heal. Most patients can return to work and other daily activities within a few weeks, but it may take several months before you see the final results. Be sure to follow Dr. Buchanan’s post-operative instructions carefully to ensure a safe and successful recovery.
