Reduce Fat and Improve Definition at Chicago’s Iteld Plastic Surgery

The line “Dude looks like a lady” may have been gold for Aerosmith, but it is not something many guys want sung about them, personally. That’s why body contouring for men by Chicago plastic surgeon Lawrence Iteld, MD, is different from body contouring for women. The underlying medical principals may be the same—removing fat here and excess skin there—but the techniques and details are carefully chosen to produce uniquely masculine results.

What Body Contouring for Men Involves

Every guy is different, so there is no single way to approach body contouring for men. One may want to emphasize those abs he’s worked so hard to develop, while another may want to get rid of the sagging breasts he sees each time he looks in the mirror due to a condition known as gynecomastia.

To that end, body contouring for men’s bodies can involve as little as a single procedure or as much as multiple surgeries combined for shaping the entire body post-massive weight loss.

One of the most commonly chosen body contouring procedures is liposuction, which allows Dr. Iteld to suction out stubborn fat cells from areas where they collect. We’re talking the belly, the flanks, a double chin—anywhere you want to look chiseled, angular, or lean as opposed to soft and bulging.

If more than fat is a problem on the abdomen, Dr. Iteld can perform a tummy tuck, which gets rid of loose skin and repairs the internal abdominal wall as necessary. That’s something even a year of sit-ups might not be able to fix. Don’t get us wrong: Exercise is still an excellent idea. Develop that core, work up a sweat, and get that heart pumping for the good of your long-term health. Just don’t be surprised if you can’t find your six-pack under a layer of sagging tissue.

Breast reduction is ideal for any man who wants a chest free from what is commonly referred to as “man boobs.” This body contouring surgery often involves the removal of fat and other tissue to reveal more masculine contours.

Dr. Iteld tackles any of these body contouring surgeries (and more) with a narcotics-free recovery in mind. He has spent years developing a technique that prevents a painful recovery in the first place, and he’s really, really good at it.

Other Options for Men Aside from Surgical Body Contouring

Iteld Plastic Surgery offers a range of nonsurgical procedures for men who want to avoid the downtime required by surgery. There are also numerous possible facial improvements so the stuff above the neck can match the stuff below in terms of a look of youth, health, and vitality.

Treatments for Men FAQs

At most, these injections break the skin just a little bit to get the good stuff inside. With BOTOX®, that involves a muscle-relaxing formula designed to smooth out forehead lines, crow’s feet, and more. With dermal fillers, it’s a gel that adds volume to fill in deeper creases that form due to the loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Kybella®, it’s a modified form of deoxycholic acid that breaks down the fat cells that contribute to the look of a double chin.

Silhouette InstaLift™ involves internal sutures placed to hold facial tissues in a lifted, more youthful position. Still—no incisions are required.

No matter the injectable, Dr. Iteld and his team work to ensure the treatment is tailored to the patient. When it comes to nonsurgical procedures for men, that frequently means administering doses that are sufficient enough to work on thicker skin, denser muscles, and other uniquely masculine physiological characteristics.

For fat reduction, CoolSculpting® doesn’t break the skin at all as it cools down pockets of unwanted fat cells. Despite the lack of incisions or injections, natural processes kicked into gear by this nonsurgical procedure reduce the volume of the treated area so that it slims down.

Skin rejuvenation with eTwo™ or Sublative® or Sublime™ also requires nothing more than a device pressed against the surface of the skin. The result is a more youthful complexion, as is true with our laser and radio frequency treatments.

Additional fabulous nonsurgical options include our ever-expanding skin care services.

In many cases, men don’t merely want to look younger overall; they want to project an air of authority. If you’d rather look like you’ve been around the block once or twice and still have a lot of fight in you rather than appear as a fresh-faced baby, the Iteld Plastic Surgery team understands and has you covered. Nonsurgical procedures for men can be used to emphasize youthful vigor and vitality without completely erasing the evidence of experience life has etched into your skin.

Nonsurgical facial improvements tend to be temporary, subtle, or both. Patients who want more dramatic and/or lasting results may opt for surgery, which focuses on contours as opposed to skin tone and texture.

The facelift is the most commonly chosen surgery to counter the downward migration of fat, skin, and other tissues over time. This procedure alters contours on the lower portion of the face, so other options are required to address sagging and drooping higher up. A brow lift can fix a heavy, Neanderthal look, while blepharoplasty lifts the upper lids, lower lids, or both as necessary. Finally, many men consider rhinoplasty to get a nose that is masculine without hogging the spotlight that should shine on the entire face.
