Many men in their 50s struggle to maintain the bodies they once had when they were in their 20s and 30s.
While many of them limit their efforts for a fit physique to hitting the iron at the local gym and adhering to a healthy diet, some, like Donovan Nelson of Essex, England, also choose to undergo cosmetic treatment to retain (or regain) the figures of their youth.

Nelson, who runs his own marketing company, told The Daily Mail that the grind of heading a family and running his own business cuts significantly into the time he would spend at the gym. His wife, Anna, is 21 years younger, thus making the pressure of keeping fit much more intense. So after hitting the gym and not getting the results he desired, Nelson resorted to undergoing a procedure called VASER.
The procedure, according to The Daily Mail, “was carried out under local anaesthetic and involved melting away the unwanted fat and removing it via a tiny canula.” Dr. Mike Comins, who carried out the procedure on Nelson, targets underlying fat and “suctions it out around the musculature to create a more defined, finished result.”

The procedure set Nelson back some 10,000 British Pounds (or a little more than 16,000 U.S. Dollars), but he said it was a great move for him. “Now I feel so much more confident and I love walking around without my top on. I like to go to Ibiza every summer for a few days and dance with my top off – being over 50 it’s hard to dance around with your top off unless you’re in good shape. I would say to other men, try and get in shape through exercise first, but if that doesn’t work then perhaps surgery is a better option. Also, the amount it costs is a good incentive to keep it off.”
