Every year more men are choosing to go under the knife or seek out a plastic surgeon for non-surgical enhancements. According to the Fashion Times, fat removal procedures are among the top procedure of choice for men. Fashion Times reports that the top five procedures for men and women are hair replacement and Abdominal etching being not too far behind (www.Lipoetching.com). The inventor of Lipoetching procedure, Dr. Leonard Grossman says that in the last 21 years the numbers of patients asking for abdominal etching has gone up many folds and even though more women had the procedure done at first, men have quickly caught on and the numbers of each group have become even.
During this procedure, a plastic surgeon carefully sculpts the fat in the abdominal and chest area region to create a better defined looking abdominal muscles and other muscle groups if requested. All of this is done with specially designed micro-cannulas which leave minimal or no scars in the area of treatment.
At first the procedure was very popular amongst the sexy Playboy centerfolds, who wanted better definition in the midsection. Then in 1996 the Hawaiian Tropics Girls made the debut and even some of Victoria Secret Models who made the chiseled look so popular. Then came the professional athletes and entertainment sports figures, who could not develop the definition regardless of the amount of exercise, started asking for the procedure. Finally everyone else followed because the price of the procedure became affordable to most and the technique has evolved to where patients can go to work the very next day.
Because plastic surgery is a medical procedure that requires care of a doctor, men or women who are considering plastic surgery should take the time to speak to their doctors and ask specific questions before moving forward with any surgery.
For instance, if you’re considering Botox, it is always a good idea to ask your doctor how many years he or she has been performing injections. Many doctors will also have photos documenting their results. Ask to see results before booking your first injection. Dr. Leonard Grossman, M.D. for instance, has received Patients’ Choice Awards and has been performing Botox injections for over two decades. In fact Dr. Grossman’s experience is so great that he teaches other physicians on how and where to use Botox.
A good plastic surgeon will offer you honest feedback on your esthetic goals and will carefully and realistically assess the risks of a given procedure. Determining the best kind of modifications to perform is an art form. You should want a surgeon who has a track record of excellent results and who is confident enough to tell you what he or she thinks will work best for you. Sometimes your doctor will even offer a better alternative to your procedure of choice.
Ask to have a tour of the doctor’s office and operating rooms to make sure that equipment is clean, professional, and that your doctor is using the most up-to-date techniques and equipment. For instance, Leonard Grossman, M.D. uses a modern facility, which has the highest level of Accreditation in the medical field (Joint Commission Accreditation).
Organic Plastic Surgery, which Dr. Grossman has invented, allows men and women change the appearance of the face and body, yet without the scars and minimal recuperation.
As the world becomes more competitive, more men are choosing to undergo plastic and cosmetic surgery. For many, surgery can produce great results. Many report high satisfaction ratings and increased self-esteem following such surgery.
