Spending countless hours at the gym lifting weights, doing crunches, and running on the treadmill is a familiar story for many men desiring that elite “gym body.” Unfortunately for some men, no amount of dedication or sweat is enough to achieve the ideal body. Genetics and aging play a significant role, and it’s a battle that some men simply cannot win. While there are still tremendous health benefits to those mornings and evenings at the gym, that’s not the only way to achieve the rock-hard, toned, and masculine physique that you want. Instead of getting discouraged, consider the cosmetic alternatives and what they can do for you.
Despite what the statistics say, plastic surgery is still commonly associated with something that will only benefit women. However, this stereotype isn’t true. Cosmetic surgery has the same benefit to men as it does for women, and it’s these procedures that can finally allow you to achieve your desired slim and toned physique. Male body contouring combines liposuction with a tummy tuck. Liposuction works wonders on minimizing and removing the stubborn pockets of fat in the abdomen, back, arms, and flanks so that you can say goodbye to those love handles for good. By combining these procedures, you are not only minimizing the fat pockets, but you are tightening muscles, removing excess or aging skin, and contouring your entire abdomen to leave you looking sculpted, toned, and feeling confident enough to hit the beach without a shirt.
While the abdomen is the core of the ideal “gym body,” it’s not the only area that matters—if that were the case, then there would be no reason to waste time trying to sculpt your arms, tone your thighs, or enhance your calves. Just as cosmetic surgery can improve the look of the abdomen, it can also address the arms and legs. Arm lift surgery trims away excess skin and fat on the upper arms so the underlying muscles take center stage. With this procedure, your hard work will no longer go unnoticed. Much like arm lift surgery, thigh lift surgery removes excess skin and fat on the inner and outer thighs to create a sleeker profile. Calf implants are the final cherry on top when it comes to the full “gym-style” leg aesthetic. Calves can often be a difficult area to tone, which can make many men feel self-conscious about their physique. Implants are made out of silicone material and sized to your desired calf definition.
