What is Male Fitness Surgery?
Houston, TX board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales is not only a cosmetic surgeon, but he is also a fitness buff and understands the importance of having a nice physique. Even though many men may follow a strict diet and gym regime, some desire a little outside assistance to help achieve the look they want. For these individuals, Morales Plastic Surgery offers male fitness surgery to help guys maximize their outcomes and give them a jump-start. This suite of procedures allows men to pick and choose one or a combination of procedures to help gain a better contour with a leaner, more ripped appearance.
Am I a Candidate for Male Fitness Surgery?
The type of men best suited for a male fitness surgery procedure designed by Dr. Morales is typically in relatively good shape, exercise regularly, and eat a healthy diet. What they need is a helping hand to get over that final hump of stubborn fat pockets to get the leaned-out, defined, and contoured look they want. Candidates should be in good overall health, have no underlying health conditions, and be at a healthy, stable body weight.

"I recently had a tummy tuck with Dr. Morales and he is an outstanding surgeon, you can tell he loves what he does. He really puts every ounce into each procedure to ensure that all of your wants in the outcome are what you are looking for. He was extremely informative as well as understanding, and reassuring from my consultation all the way up to my 8 week post op visit. Not to mention that his bedside manner is impeccable. Linda is also extremely informative, patient, and is amazing about getting answers to your questions in a very timely manner. All of his assistants are super sweet, and listen to your concerns. I could not have chosen a better surgeon and team!!"- M.M. / Google / Jul 07, 2020
"I had surgery with Dr Morales on 4/14/22 after losing 80lbs. My procedures include: extended tummy tuck with muscle repair, lipo to back, braline, flanks and my neck. I had a Bbl, and a breast augmentation; silicone implants. I knew right away during my consultation I didn’t want any other physician doing my procedure! He was thorough when examining me, and after I expressed concerns, he was very honest with me about procedures I did not need, and that’s what I love about him. Instead of just taking my money, he explained the why’s, and ultimately that’s something rare to find. His knowledge in all procedures, his bedside manner and great staff made me feel super comfortable from A-Z. Scheduling my procedure was a breeze. Linda, his patient coordinator, was very patient with me when scheduling my procedure, and was very prompt in responding to my emails. I went in for my pre-op appt about 2 weeks prior to my surgery. I saw his staff member Yaritza, who explained what I could expect post surgery, and was even given a bag of post surgery goodies! She was very patient with me when taking my pictures, as this was something that made me very shy. I was sized again for my breast implants to help me decide on my size. He came in with his assistant Claudia to reassure me about my size, discuss my procedure again in more detail and to let me know I was not alone. Going into the surgery center was a breeze! Instead of feeling anxious, I felt so comfortable. I was greeted by young lady named Christine who took my vitals and walked me Into one of the recovery rooms. She was very very sweet. I then saw the nurse Becky who started my iv. She was very knowledgeable and quick. I was seen by dr morales prior to my surgery to confirm all procedures, and have him mark me all up. :) I walked into the OR, and everyone greeted me in. The anesthesiologist was amazing, and heard my concerns about previous anesthesia. Post op days were not as bad as I thought! This was huge for me, as I am a mother of 4 and always on the go! Soreness here and there, but nothing I could not handle. Anytime I had questions, his assistant Claudia was quick to put me at ease!! She answered every message! Definitely exceeded my expectations. I went in for a one week post op, and was seen very quickly after checking in! I was greeted by an assistant named JJ who removed my drain. Very painless and she talked me through the entire thing. She stepped out, and during this time I was seen by His assistant Yaritza, same young lady who did my pre op consent appt. She wanted to say hello, ask how I was feeling, and instructed me on implant massages. Shortly after, the Dr came in with his assistant Avilene and Claudia. He explained what I was cleared to do and explained what he saw during the procedure. I was again, given a bag a post op supplies that I begin to use after week 1. Linda also stopped by to say hello! :) I return in 2 weeks and all I can say is HE IS AMAZING! Definitely, definitely recommend Dr Morales and his entire staff! They make you feel comfortable, at ease, and treat you like friends. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my surgery needs! I hope they get a chance to read this, because they have all been superb."- L.P. / Google / Apr 21, 2022
"My experience with Dr. Morales was nothing short of wonderful. There are many local surgeons, and I chose to use him even being 2 hours away. If you are looking for a first -class, professional, amazing experience and results then Dr. Morales should be your choice. The distance nor the price was a factor when I was ready to have my procedure because I knew I wanted him to be my surgeon. You get what you pay for. He went above and beyond and my results far exceeded my expectations for what I thought was possible for my revision. If I could afford it I would be there every week lol. The ladies on his team were wonderful as well, from those who prepped me for surgery to those who helped on my follow ups. First Class Service. Highly recommend."- L.C. / Google / Apr 01, 2022
Suite of Procedures
During the initial consultation, Dr. Morales will listen to the concerns and desires of his male patients and work to create a custom treatment plan. According to the goal of patients, he will identify the procedure(s) that will help them look and feel more fit, as well as add definition to their contour that they have been struggling to achieve. Dr. Morales may suggest the following procedures:
Some men, regardless how hard they train and how many crunches they do, cannot achieve the rippled abdominal look they desire. Abdominal etching is a surgery that can provide instant results by removing and repositioning fat in the stomach area. This is done using a special liposuction technique and is designed to accentuate the lines, ripples, and muscular appearance of a “6-pack” abdominal region.
Tone, tight chests are an aesthetic goal of many men. Some men, however, will not be able to achieve a toned appearance in their chest unless they undergo surgery for a condition known as gynecomastia. This is condition where excess tissue develops in the chest of a man giving the appearance of soft, female-looking breasts. Gynecomastia surgery can create a slimmer, more toned chest area, allowing men to exercise more freely, and expose their chests with confidence. During this surgery, the nipples may also be addressed if a nipple reduction is needed.
Bodybuilders and gym fanatics often work their chest and pec muscles to create a strong, tight chest. For some men, the hours put into their workouts are not enough to achieve the results they desire. Pectoral etching is a cosmetic surgery procedure that can help create the look of a muscular chest that hours in the gym cannot produce. It uses liposuction to reshape excess breast tissue to give men a firmer and more toned-looking chest.
Regardless of how “clean” a guy eats and how hard he works out, sometimes there can still be stubborn pockets of fat that simply will not go away. This can be frustrating, especially when a diligent diet and exercise routine is put forth. Liposuction can be used to remove these unwanted fat pockets, creating a slimmer, sleeker appearance. Morales Plastic Surgery offers several options for liposuction, depending on where the fat is located and how much is to be removed.
