Hitting your weight goal after losing significant weight can feel great. However, it can also feel discouraging when you experience leftover, sagging skin that doesn’t seem to shrink. That’s because diet and exercise can’t address stretched skin. Often, the most effective option is plastic surgery to tighten and remove excess skin for tight, trimmed figure.
Body contouring for men involves a selection of customized procedures designed to reduce pockets of residual fat and excess skin from many areas of the body. This often includes options like:
Dr. DiFrancesco will assess your goals and anatomy to create a surgical plan that works best for you. She can also recommend which options can be safely performed within the same procedure.

Men who benefit most from body contouring are those who have lost significant weight and are left with sagging, loose skin. It’s most important that you be in good overall health and have maintained your new weight for several months. This means you have healthy habits in place so that you can enjoy your results for the long-term and won’t require an additional procedure if you gain weight back. Dr. DiFrancesco will discuss your candidacy for each specific procedure during your consultation.
Your surgery will be performed under general anesthesia. Each option can be performed with discreet, well-placed incisions, and can often accompany liposuction to reduce stubborn, fatty pockets. Dr. DiFrancesco will ensure you understand the steps of each procedure of your body contouring suite.
Facial fat can often be the most difficult to lose, but it can leave behind sagging skin in the midface. This means the facelift can be an excellent option to lift and restore a tired and aged appearance.
One common area where fat accumulates is under the chin and along the jawline. Even if you’re at your ideal weight, this fat can remain behind and cause sagging skin (or, ‘turkey wattle’). A neck lift can rejuvenate and refine your jawline for a masculine, sculpted look.
If ‘bat wings’ prevent you from achieving your arm definition goals, an arm lift can excise sagging skin and fat deposits.
A thigh lift can address sagging skin in the upper legs for tight, toned thighs.
This option can correct sagging in the lower body, specifically around the hips, stomach, and thighs. It often removes an ‘apron’ of skin around the midsection, but can be performed using a few different techniques.
The tummy tuck can both remove excess skin and fat around the abdomen while also tightening the underlying muscles that become stretched due to weight gain.
Recovery from your unique procedure will depend on factors like the exact areas addressed and the extent of the changes made. Dr. DiFrancesco will give you detailed instructions to follow for aftercare as well as make sure you understand your timeframe for returning to work and exercise. With a healthy lifestyle, most men enjoy long-term results with body contouring.
