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.

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.
