Will Male Body Contouring Take a Long Time?

The time you will need to invest in male body contouring will depend on the types and extent of treatment. Some minimally invasive body contouring treatments may be quick procedures with little or no downtime, while some surgical procedures may require a day for surgery and time away from work to rest and recover. Popular male body contouring treatment options include:


This is the gold standard treatment to remove fat from areas with stubborn deposits (such as the abdomen and flanks) for sculpting the torso. You can go home the same day after liposuction, but you will need a week or two to recover.

Renuvion™ Skin Tightening

Renuvion is a game-changing technique to tighten and rejuvenate loose skin without surgery or extensive downtime. It uses a handheld device inserted under the skin through small, strategically placed incisions. The device delivers a stream of helium — energized by radiofrequency waves — to send a powerful surge of cool plasma to the treatment area. This heats the underside of the skin, causing it to contract and stimulating new collagen production.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Surgical options to create a flatter chest include liposuction and surgical excision of breast tissue. Incision lines can be camouflaged for better-looking results. On average, recovery time takes 1 to 2 weeks.


This minimally invasive treatment was specifically designed to reduce fat beneath the chin for a crisper jawline and profile. Injectable Kybella contains a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by the body to help it break down and absorb fat.


For frown lines and crow’s feet, BOTOX remains the gold standard. This quick, injectable treatment can take years off your facial appearance.

Facial Fillers

This non-surgical treatment option can be used to increase the definition of the jawline, either alone or in combination with other skin rejuvenation procedures.

Can I Recover On My Own After Male Body Contouring in Springfield, MO?

It depends on the treatment you have. For surgical procedures performed under anesthesia, such as gynecomastia surgery or liposuction, you will need someone to drive you home after surgery and stay with you at least for the first night. After minimally invasive treatments such as neurotoxins or facial filler injections, you will be able to drive yourself home with minimal recovery. At Shah Plastic Surgery, we monitor your recovery closely.
