Fat Grafting for Men
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery
Fat grafting is the relatively simple solution for your misplaced fat. Men want to be big in some areas and trim in others, too seldom they find that those areas are mismatched. With fat grafting technology by Dr. Sayah of his Beverly Hills plastic surgery practice, The Sayah Institute, fat can be extracted from unwanted areas, treated for texture, injected, and molded into the tight muscle where you want it.*
Abdomen – Rectus Augmentation
Often it’s not enough to just sculpt the figure with liposuction. As much as someone’s exiting anatomy can be removed, the shape can be taken one step further by enhancing the anatomic structure.
The abdomen is the perfect location in the body to enhance an existing structure to make the male figure more statuary. After removing the excess fat at the abdomen and love handles, the aspirated fat is purified and injected into each individual part of the rectus abdominis muscle.
Each of the eight packs are enlarged in this manner with the injected fat to enhance their size, thereby creating a truly statuesque figure. The oblique muscles are similarly injected with the harvested fat or even augmented by injecting the fat over the muscles to create a sculpted athletic figure.*
The Question of Gaining Weight Post-Operation
One of the most common questions asked after liposuction is, “where does the fat go if I were to gain weight?” Mild to moderate weight fluctuations are tolerated well and don’t really go to only a single area. In patients having their own fat (autologous) removed from unwanted areas and re-injected back into desired areas, there are obviously more fat cells in the injected area.*
With severe degrees of weight gain, the accumulated calories actually go to the injected areas in a greater proportion than would have without any fat injection.*
Chest - Pectoralis Augmentation
Referring to male statues from far back in history, strong chest muscles and a prominent eight pack have long demonstrated male beauty, fitness, and health for all to admire. While some men are truly gifted in this area and work hard at maintaining their perfect figures, most other men have a disadvantage.
With refined surgical techniques, fat is removed from the chest and abdomen to highlight existing muscles. Instead of discarding the liposuctioned fat, the fat is purified and re-injected into the pectoralis major muscles on the chest. The technique involves injecting small droplets of fat, similar to a 3-D printer, to achieve the enlarged pectoral muscles men envy.*
Some of the harvested fat can also be injected into the abdominal muscles to enhance the eight packs. Each injected muscle appears and functions normally, but in an enlarged capacity. Incisions are minimal and well hidden. Of course the more areas suctioned and sculpted, the more diffuse your soreness. Account for 5 to 6 days of down time from work.*
Arms – Biceps and Triceps Augmentation
While it’s uncommon for men to have excess fat at their arms, it is common to have smaller than desired biceps and triceps muscles. We all know the aesthetic appeal of large muscular arms which are more proportionate to a sculpted figure. As with the abdomen or the chest, liposuctioned fat can be purified and injected into the biceps and triceps to enhance their size.*
Based on how much fat is available from your liposuction and the order of preference of your anatomy you wish to enhance, the harvested fat is injected in very small droplets, similar to a 3-D printer, into the muscles of the upper arm. The muscles don’t have to be extraordinarily large, but enhanced to create a more statuesque figure. Incisions are small and well-hidden and down time is minimal.*
When deciding on which body parts to enhance with fat grafting, it’s recommended to make a priority list numbering each body part in your preferred order.
Especially here in Beverly Hills, where plenty of skin is comfortably shown year-round, men wish to have strong, protruding calves to accentuate the tone of their legs. Defined legs are desired to complete the overall aesthetic, as men often fear the top-heavy look of a solid torso perched atop slim, fragile looking legs. With fat grafting technology, this look can be corrected and the ideal one achieved.
