Male Fat Tends to Collect in the Chest and Abdominal Regions

A band of fat extends throughout both breast, around the chest, under the arms, and through the back. Another band of fat collects around the abdomen, through the flanks, and also around the back. When there is significant excess tissue, the flesh folds. A large component of the weight is stored inside the muscle / fascia wall of the abdomen around the intestines and in a structure called the omentum - a fat storage structure typically between the intestines and the front muscle wall.

Losing weight is a coarse sculpture tool. It is difficult to pick where weight goes on or comes off from. Men tend to gain fat first in the breast and abdominal regions. When losing weight, the stomach and chest regions are the most difficult to reduce. Plastic surgery is better as a fine sculpture tool. Better artists use a coarse tool first, then the fine tool to refine.

Picture - Sumo Wrestlers with Typical Male Fat
Sumo wrestlers seem to typically have a large bulk, yet exposure of the chest and abdomen are part of their profession. Many men with large breasts and extra fat have told Dr. Bermant they do not go out in public with their bodies exposed. They tend to hide themselves in thick clothing, extra layers of fabric, and avoid activities that may require exposure.

Dr. Bermant's patients who lose weight frequently tell him they feel much better at a lower fat level than when they were obese. Fat men are putting more stress on their back, hips, knees, and ankles. Wearing excess weight gets harder as we age.

Plastic surgery is not a good tool for losing weight. Losing weight can change the shape of the body. Fibers in the skin can break resulting in stretch marks and tissue that just do not shrink well after losing weight. Stretched out skin only adjusts so far. Plastic Surgery after Weight Loss can help.
