The popularity of plastic surgery procedures for men has been on the rise in recent years, with body contouring surgeries like liposuction, abdominoplasty and male breast reduction among the most popular.
However, before deciding if one of these procedures could be right for you, follow these three important plastic surgery tips for men who are considering body contouring surgery.
Look at Before and After Photos
The first step in the process is to choose the right plastic surgeon. Start by narrowing your search based on credentials such as board certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, years of experience in the field and client reviews.
Next, look at before and after photos of previous body contouring results that each plastic surgeon has achieved. Focus on photos of men with a similar build and body type as yours to give you a better idea of what your own results might look like.
Schedule a Consultation or Two
Once you’ve narrowed your search, schedule a consultation with one or more of your top picks for body contouring plastic surgeons. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions, get to know your plastic surgeon, see the office and facility and decide if body contouring surgery could be right for you.
Follow Pre-Procedure Advice from Your Plastic Surgeon
At your consultation, your plastic surgeon might recommend making certain lifestyle changes or hitting certain goals prior to getting liposuction or other body contouring procedures.
For example, he or she may advise that you reach a specific weight loss milestone or stop smoking in order to optimize your final results and minimize the risk of complications.
