Male Facial and Body Contouring

Hitting your weight goal after massive weight loss 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 surgical procedures to tighten and remove excess skin for a tight, trimmed figure.

What is Male Facial and Body Contouring?

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.

Candidates for Male Facial and Body Contouring

Men who benefit most from body contouring are those who have undergone significant weight loss and are left with excess fat, sagging, loose skin, and a double chin. It’s most important that you be in good overall health and have maintained your ideal 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.

Facial and Body Contouring Procedures

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 surgical 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.

Neck Lift

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.

Arm Lift

If ‘bat wings’ prevent you from achieving your arm definition goals, an arm lift can excise sagging skin and fat deposits.

Thigh Lift

A thigh lift can address sagging skin in the upper legs for tight, toned thighs.

Lower Body Lift

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.

Tummy Tuck

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.

Male Facial and Body Contouring Recovery

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is recovery like with male facial and body contouring?

What your recovery is like will depend on the types of contouring procedures you have done. Dr. DiFrancesco will let you know what your recovery will be like and how long it will take based on your treatment plan.

How do I know if male facial and body contouring is right for me?

Ideal candidates for male facial and body contouring treatment include adults in good overall health who have realistic expectations and are at or near their ideal body weight. Good candidates should also have excess fat and sagging skin they are looking to address. You should also be committed to practicing a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results.

Can I have multiple facial and/or body contouring at the same time?

Absolutely! Dr. DiFrancesco can build two or more procedures into your treatment plan. You can choose from a facelift, neck lift, tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, and lower body lift.

Are the results of facial and body contouring procedures permanent?

Yes, the results of facial and body contouring procedures are permanent or semi-permanent. Depending on the procedures included in your treatment plan, the results can last for years, if not decades.

When will I see the results of body contouring?

Some of the results of body contouring will be noticeable immediately after surgery, but swelling and bruising will hide most of the results. As you recover, you’ll see more and more results. A facelift typically shows results after four weeks, while a tummy tuck takes six months to a year to see the final results.
