Abdominal muscles, plates, six-pack. In principle, all men have them, except that in most of us they are hidden deep under fat deposits.
Six-pack muscles have been popular since the time of ancient Greece when they were precisely carved into the statutes of gods like Zeus.
Since those ancient times, many men have tried to point them out, not to say create, but only a few have succeeded. The reason for this is that many men have a misconception of how to come to the definition, that is, the protrusion and retention of the abdominal muscles.
While some believe that they can only be achieved through dedicated work and daily exercise, today there are certainly more and more cases in which men undergo plastic body shaping surgeries, such as liposuction.
Body shaping or cosmetic surgery has been present in modern society for some time. At first, these procedures were popular among women, but today they are increasingly used by men as well.
In most cases, they are used as part of the process of removing unwanted fat tissue (primarily from the abdominal area), or defining the perfect body shape.
Possessing a perfect body has become increasingly accepted as a social standard. The reason for this is, for example, many exposed actors who, because of their business engagements, have to shape their own body to perfection (because Thor is perfect).
Precisely because of their impact on the environment and the ubiquity of social networks, they impose certain standards of beauty that are increasingly demanding to maintain.
Cosmetic surgery is just one way to meet these standards of modern society.
It’s not all about exercising
Many fitness experts will advise men that all they need is special exercise equipment or a special exercise routine and practically guarantee them the definition of abdominal muscles, of course, through a period of dedicated and hard work.
But as it turns out, things are a bit more complicated nonetheless.
One of the reasons for this is genetics. Namely, in some men it is difficult and even impossible to reach a perfect definition of the abdominal, but also other, muscles.
Another reason for this is that many exercises focus on defining exclusively the abdominal muscles, while the rest of the body is neglected in this regard.
However, it is still necessary to work on the whole body, and in order to define the abdominal muscles over time.
Most often, the reason is that men simply do not have time to spend hours in gyms and work on the body because they have to take care of business obligations, family, social life and a host of other obligations.
Very often today’s men are compared to men in the past who, we must admit, largely had, but also maintained the abdominal muscles. The reason for this was not regular exercise, diet or various body shaping procedures, but daily physical work.
In the past, men spent significantly more of their business part with physical work. Today, this active physical work has been largely replaced by office passive work. Today’s job is primarily sedentary.
Most men who think seriously about their muscles can achieve enough strength, especially the abdominal ones, and get rid of so-called visceral fats through physical activity and dedicated exercise. These are the fats that envelop the muscles and cannot be removed by liposuction.
But the real problem lies in the subcutaneous adipose tissue, which is very difficult to eliminate through diet or exercise.
This is where liposuction comes into play, specifically tumescent liposuction. It is a procedure that is performed under general or local anesthesia where adipose tissue is exposed to a special fluid (tumescent fluid) which then dissolves that adipose tissue so that it can be removed from the body. With this method, the plastic surgeon directly affects the parts of the body from which he wants to remove unwanted subcutaneous fat.
Specifically, after removing the fatty tissue from the abdomen, ie abdominal muscles, the plastic surgeon will start the process or final procedures of shaping the desired area, ie abdominal muscles, using all his knowledge, but also a bit of creativity.
Finally, it should be noted that after this procedure we do not get the final and permanent shape of the abdominal muscles, because if we stop exercising and eating properly, adipose tissue will accumulate again and overshadow the abdominal muscles.
