Why Should I Trust Dr. Patronella with My Body Contouring Procedure?

Houston-area physicians and residents have repeatedly voted for Dr. Patronella as one of Houston’s top doctors for cosmetic surgery in annual magazine polls.

Attention to Detail and the Male Physique

Careful attention to shaping ideal contours should be the primary consideration for the plastic surgeon when performing any body contouring treatment. While weight loss is a welcome result from liposuction, the overriding objective is not how much fat is removed, but how and where the fat is removed to create ideal contours and proportions.

Perhaps the most commonly requested procedure for men is lipocontouring of the abdomen and waist (love handles). This procedure is done in men of all ages by Dr. Chris Patronella in Houston, as long as skin tone is reasonably good, to dramatically reduce or eliminate stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to a healthy lifestyle.

Abdominal etching, a procedure that was first developed and published at the Aesthetic Center For Plastic Surgery in 1993 (“Abdominal Etching: Differential Liposuction to Detail Abdominal Musculature.” Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Fall 1993, Volume 17, Issue 4), is often added for men who seek muscular definition as well.
