Donovan from Braintree, Essex, was once in very good shape – exercising regularly and eating healthily – but nevertheless he struggled to maintain a body that was toned and muscular through exercise alone.
In his younger days Donovan, who owns his own marketing company, was better able to achieve the results he wanted but after starting a family and living a busy working life, he struggled to maintain a lifestyle that was active enough to give him the body he wanted.
Donovan’s wife Anna is also 21 years his junior and so the pressure to look fit and in shape alongside her was even larger because of this age gap
In the end he resorted to a treatment called VASER high def at The Private Clinic, performed by Dr Mike Comins. More after the cut
Dr Comins targets the underlying fat during the procedure and suctions it out around the musculature to create a more defined, finished result.
Speaking to MailOnline, Donovan said: 'You can only go so far with exercise and at my age it's much harder to keep the weight off.
'I do a lot of cardio but it's hard to shift the fat in certain areas, especially after a certain age.
'The good thing about this treatment is it's targeted weight loss off the area you want to lose it from. I had love handles and fat below my pecs and I wanted to get rid of it.'
He underwent the treatment six months ago and it set him back £10,000 but he maintains that it was worth every penny.
He said: '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.'
