For some men, even the most dedicated fitness regimens won’t produce the results they are searching for. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Shim Ching provides these men with muscle augmentation to better define and sculpt their muscles.

What Is Male Muscle Augmentation?

Male muscle augmentation is a surgical procedure in which fat is removed from one part of the body and placed into the muscles to augment their size. Hi-Definition Liposuction is usually also performed to enhance the contours of the muscles. Areas where this can be done include the chest, arms, legs and abdomen.

The First Step in Muscle Augmentation

Your first step in the muscle augmentation process is a consultation at Asia Pacific Plastic Surgery with Dr. Shim Ching. At this consultation, you will be able to discuss your goals for the procedure and your desired outcomes. Dr. Ching will ask for your medical history and examine the areas that you wish to be treated. After this, he will determine if you are an ideal candidate for treatment. He will also be able to answer any questions you may have about the procedure and give you better insight into how the procedure works. He will craft a customized treatment plan to meet your needs and ensure the desired results.

Your Muscle Augmentation Recovery 

After your procedure, you may feel sore and experience some bruising and swelling. Most patients can return to work in five to seven days but may take a few weeks to heal fully. You should avoid strenuous activities, including intense cardio and heavy lifting until you get the doctor’s approval. After your procedure, some results will instantly be visible. Because you will be experiencing fluid retention and swelling, full results will take some time to appear. Once the swelling has gone down, you should see the completed results in a few months. It is crucial to maintain a proper diet and exercise to help maintain your procedure results.

Ideal Candidates 

An ideal candidate for this procedure will be in good overall health and near their desired weight. This procedure is designed to help those who have not been able to achieve their desired results from diet and exercise. Contact our office to schedule an appointment to see if you are an ideal candidate.

How Does The Procedure Work?

The procedure begins with anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the procedure. First, liposuction is used to harvest the fat. Liposuction is performed by creating a small incision, and inserting an instrument inside to break up and remove the fat. The fat can be taken from areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or flanks. The fat is then purified and placed in the desired regions for improved muscle definition.
