Research indicates that more men are electing to undergo cosmetic surgery every year. In fact, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of cosmetic surgeries for men increased more than 106 percent between 1997 and 2012.
At the Plastic Surgery Group, we welcome male patients who want to address personal cosmetic concerns and enjoy more confidence in their appearance. Our surgeons take the time to listen to our patients’ concerns and design tailored treatment plans to suit their individual needs.
Why Men Seek Plastic Surgery
There are a few reasons why men seek out cosmetic treatment. Some of our patients are business executives who want to look younger, fitter and more masculine to remain competitive in the workplace. Other men cannot achieve their ideal physique — despite rigorous exercise and diet — or have excess loose skin after massive weight loss. We also see a number of men who are embarrassed by enlarged, feminine-looking breasts. Some of our male patients have watched their spouses or girlfriends have cosmetic surgical procedures and have seen the positive changes first-hand in their physical appearance as well as their improved body image.
Let’s take a closer look at the most popular procedures among The Plastic Surgery Group’s male clientele and how they help these men achieve their cosmetic goals.
One of the most common procedures that our plastic surgeons perform on male patients is surgery to reduce oversized breasts (a condition known as gynecomastia). During male breast reduction, our surgeons create a more classically masculine-looking chest contour by removing excess glandular/fatty tissue and loose skin as well as decreasing areola size if needed.
In addition to oversized breasts, our male patients often have concerns about areas of excess fat and skin. Liposuction alone will target excess fat around the waist, back, buttocks, neck and underneath the chin. Tummy tuck surgery focuses on removing excess fat and skin from the abdominal area. Body lift procedures are helpful for men who have lost a significant amount of weight and are close to their ideal weight, but struggle with leftover loose, saggy skin. This procedure tightens skin circumferentially around the body.
Looking rested and fresh-faced is important to our male patients. Our surgeons can correct the signs of facial aging and refine specific facial features through procedures such as rhinoplasty, eyelift and facelift. We can also place facial implants to enhance a patient’s chin, cheekbones and/or jawline.
Some of our male patients want to see facial rejuvenation results without committing to surgery. Many can achieve their desired results with non-surgical options such as Botox or dermal filler treatment. We also offer laser wrinkle and laser redness treatment to improve the appearance of aging or sun-damaged skin. One of the latest radiowave technologies, Vanquish, is now available in our office for fat reduction along the abdomen and love handles.
