Gerald Butler Works Hard for His Body

Gerals Butler in great form

Gerard Butler, star of the movies 300 and Gamers, looks like a natural to me. I believe that he has obtained his fat burning, ripped body by himself with hard work and diet.

However. it’s no secret that many men are turning to some form of cosmetic surgery to try to have a physique as perfect as Gerald Butler.

Two of the most common procedures for men wanting the “ripped” look are liposuction and male pec implants. With liposuction, a surgeon can remove excess fat using any number of technologies, including tumescent liposuction, laser liposuction such as SmartLipo.

Liposculpture is a cosmetic surgery technique used to define abdominal muscles. The procedure offers quick recovery with minimal swelling and downtime. The side effects and risks are minimal, but can include infection. It is best to consult with a qualified liposuction doctor.

Male pec implants offer a quick step to nicely-built pectoral muscles. This procedure is similar to breast implants in women, except that the male pec implant is a more solid silicone product. By design, the implant supplies a man’s chest with a masculine shape, firmness and size.

However, Male pec implant surgery carries some risk. Recovery can take as long as six weeks, and the patient can experience soreness and implant shifts, as well as risk infections. To minimize the chance of complications with any cosmetic surgery procedure, prospective patients should always look for a doctor who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

To me there is only one Gerald Butler, though. His personality and inner beauty as well as his phenomenal body make him the total package.

LipoBodySculpture of Houston Announces New Location

LipoBodySculpture of Houston – experts in Smartlipo, VASER lipo, and mesotherapy – have announced the opening of a new location, providing the perfect locale for both men and women in the Houston area looking to dramatically sculpt their bodies – without dramatic surgery.

Dr. Raul Rodriguez of LipBodySculpture of Houston and his expert staff who specialize in Smart Lipo, VASER Lipo, and mesotherapy are pleased to announce the opening of their doors at a new location – 546 Waugh Drive, Houston, Texas. Houston residents as well as out of town patients now have equal access to some of the country’s most advanced body fat sculpting services in a quaint and tranquil setting that will literally make one stop and take a deep, relaxing breath.

The expertise of Dr. Rodriguez and his staff combines over 20 years of surgical experience and the advanced laser lipolysis technologies of Smartlipo as well as VASER Lipo. While most people are familiar with traditional liposuction and tummy tucks, increasingly women and men are seeking less invasive alternatives to conventional body shaping techniques. Reasons most cited by patients selecting less invasive procedures include reduced downtime and less risk than conventional invasive procedures.

For example, traditional liposuction requires bulky tubes to suction away fat. The result is more pain, bruising, larger scars from incisions and a lengthy recovery period.

Smartlipo, known as laser lipolysis, laser liposuction and VASER Lipo, an innovative ultrasound technology, are two exceptional and popular alternatives to conventional liposuction – especially for those seeking a solution for troublesome fatty areas without a drastic interruption in their lifestyle.

VASER Lipo is more suitable for larger fatty areas. Ultrasonic energy targets fat tissue, emulsifies it, and through gentle suction and massage, the fat is removed from the body. Because the ultrasound is tissue selective, other tissue such as connective tissue, nerves, and veins are left intact.

Both Smartlipo and VASER Lipo are performed at Dr. Rodriguez’s new Houston clinic and do not require a general anesthetic such as used in conventional liposuction. This means a more rapid recovery without painful or potentially dangerous side effects associated with more invasive procedures.
Dr. Rodriguez is a member of The French Society of Mesotherapy and has over seven years of experience implementing the Mesotherapy procedure. He helped introduce the technique to the United State and was featured by Barbara Walters on ABC News 20/20 in 2003.

Smart Lipo (SmartLipo) Is Gentler Than Traditional Liposuction

Smart Lipo (Smartlipo) is gentler than traditional liposuction. Most doctors state patients have less blood loss, down time and only need a local anesthetic. The biggest bonus appears to be that Smartlipo promotes skin tightening. Within the next 6-8 weeks, the skin and surrounding areas will remodel and adjust to the body contour. This is a gradual process and the best results are seen after 2 months. The downtime is minimal and the patient can usually return to work within 24 hours.

Smart Lipo Costs

The SmartLipo (Smart Lipo) cost will depend on the size of the area being treated and the number of areas treated in one session. Price is something that you will need to work out with your physician at the time of your consultation. Costs can range from $3000-$4000 for an area.
