Men's Health Month

June is Men’s Health Month – it’s also National Fruits and Veggies Month – offering a great time to reassess your commitment to leading a healthy lifestyle to obtain the strongest and most attractive physique possible.

Diet and exercise are essential components of healthy living, but neither one needs to be complex or prohibitive. Adult males should aim for 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity every week. A combination of the two works just as well. It is also recommended that men work every major muscle group at least twice weekly. If you struggle to meet these goals, consider working with a personal trainer to customize a plan that works for you.

As for diet, choosing whole foods and focusing on fresh fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats is a great way to maintain a healthy weight. Healthy eating can also help prevent heart disease, hypertension, and a host of other diseases and illnesses related to weight gain. As with exercise, if you struggle with nutrition, meet with a nutritionist to help create a plan that works with your body and blood type.

Sometimes, We Need a Little Help

A healthy diet and active exercise regimen can help you maintain an attractive physique and ward off several fatal diseases. They may not be enough to fully sculpt and contour your body. This is where cosmetic surgical procedures come in.

At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Levi Young offers a range of body contouring options that can help men reach their aesthetic goals. Liposuction, abdominoplasty, and male breast reduction can be used alone or in specific combinations to address many of the common issues that obscure the male body and produce an unwanted, soft and flabby appearance. If you are unhappy with the results you have obtained through diet and exercise alone, it may be time to talk to Dr. Young, learn about your options, and take action to achieve your goals.

Please call Advanced Cosmetic Surgery at 913-341-2188 to schedule a consultation at our Leawood office today. Dr. Young is a board-certified plastic surgeon serving Overland Park, Kansas City, and all surrounding areas.
