Male Plastic Surgery
The number of men seeking plastic surgery and minimally invasive procedures has increased dramatically.
Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Rejuvenation)
Men seek an eyelid tuck for two common reasons. A younger, healthier and more vibrant appearance is sought after both socially and career wise. Hanging skin of the upper eyelids and bags of the lower eyelids lend a tired and aged look to the face not reflecting the true physical and psychological condition of the man seeking improvement.
Face and Neck Lift (Rhytidectomy)
The personally and professionally successful male may feel young and dynamic but the sagging skin of his face and neck (turkey neck) gives a misperception on the part of the viewer. Loss of contour of the male strong jawline and fullness and drooping skin of his neck gives the appearance of premature aging. A facelift, neck lift and suction lipectomy of the neck reverse these changes. They may be done alone or combined where indicated.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping)
A large nose may be disproportionate to the other features of the face. A reduction rhinoplasty (nose job) creates an improvement in the size and shape of the nose. It is frequently done in conjunction with a chin implant (augmentation mentoplasty) to create a more attractive look where the nose does not dominate but rather enhances facial appearance. A masculine nose is maintained.
Gynecomastia, enlargement of the male breast is a common occurrence in men of all ages. Social embarrassment often results. Liposuction is used to remove excessive fatty tissue and re-contour the breast for a more toned and masculine appearance.
Tummy Tucks For Men
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) Genetics, aging and weight loss may result is a jelly belly that has lost its tone and contour. These factors contribute to an unattractive appearance and an uncomfortable physical condition. Frequently hanging skin covers the pubis. An abdominoplasty tightens the abdominal muscles and removes excess fat and skin.
Middle age, defined as 40 years old and upward, produces psychological and physical alterations in men A relatively new description for men seeking face and body improvement in this age group is referred to as a Daddy Do-Over, a spin-off from the Mommy Makeover. Despite diet and exercise inevitable alterations in appearance occur. A fat shift results in loss of a once toned abdomen. Breasts may enlarge (gynecomastia), skin of the face and sags, wrinkles appear and a once athletic and vibrant look slowly fades. Surgery and minimal invasive procedures address these changes.
The benefits of plastic surgery are more than physical.
- Many satisfied patients experience increased confidence
- A rise in self-esteem then follows.
- Patients have reported being “happier” and looking and feeling their “best.”
- Many said they felt a positive impact on their quality of life.
