Male Plastic Surgery

There was a time that plastic surgery was more common for women than for men. Over the years this has been changing Today, plastic surgery is becoming more popular among men—after all, they want to also maintain their looks and have issues they want to correct.

There are many male plastic surgery options available for all parts of the body. In this article we look at a few.

Common Types of Male Plastic Surgery

Men may consider plastic surgery for many reasons. From correcting facial abnormalities to wanting a nose that better suits their facial structure to body contouring and a breast reduction, men can achieve their goals.

It is a competitive world, especially in the workplace, and men of all ages may feel plastic surgery is necessary to compete with their younger competition.

Some of the most popular procedures that men consider include male facial rejuvenation and body contouring for men.

Male Facial Rejuvenation

After a thoroughly examining you, a specialist plastic surgeon will tailor a treatment plan to achieve your goals. The aim is to restore your looks with one or a number of male facial rejuvenation procedures. During the surgery, your surgeon can:

  • Give you a neck and face lift to reduce sagging skin and remove additional fat.
  • Perform a rhinoplasty so you can breathe better.
  • Complete a blepharoplasty to remove excess skin and fat from around your eyes.

Male Neck and Face Lift

Do you want to get rid of wrinkles, sagging skin and additional fatty areas around your neck area and lower face? If so, then a neck and face lift could work for you. At your consultation, your specialist plastic surgeon will examine the looseness of the skin and your wrinkles give you options to achieve your desired results.

During a face lift your surgeon will remove the excess skin and reposition the muscles and fat to raise your cheeks and the middle of your face. This will reduce the prominence of your jawline for better definition.

The neck lift procedure will reduce your double chin and redefine your neck area to give you a more youthful appearance.

It is common to have a face lift at the same time as a neck lift to give you a more dramatic result and less recovery time.

Male Rhinoplasty

You may seek a rhinoplasty (nose job) to correct your nose after a trauma due to an accident or a sporting injury. This may cause a blockage that makes breathing difficult and you want it corrected.

Another reason for a nose job could be to remove a bump removed or to correct the size or shape so that it is in better proportion with other facial features.

Benefits of a rhinoplasty include:

  • Better able to breath
  • Balancing your facial features
  • Improving self-esteem and confidence
  • Less likely to snore
  • Straighter or smoother shape of your nose.

Male Eyelid Rejuvenation

As you age, your choices in life and genetics can show in around your eyes. Drooping eyelids and bags under your eyes can make you look tired or older than you really are.

Eyelid rejuvenation is also called a blepharoplasty. This is surgery to change how your eye area looks by either removing or adding fat to the area. This can be done to your upper or lower eyelids, or to both to achieve the results you want.

A blepharoplasty reduces signs of ageing and removes any bags from under your eyes.

Body Contouring for Men

Men are no different to women in their struggle to improve their body. Whether it is removing pockets of fat that resist exercise and diet to flatten the stomach, excess skin after losing large amounts of weight or to reduce the size of overly large breasts, there are plastic surgery techniques that can help.

Male Body Lift Surgery

A body lift may be right for you if you have lost huge amounts of weight and your skin has lost its elasticity. No matter how much you exercise and diet, you are left with a large amount of sagging skin. If this sounds like you, talk to a specialist plastic surgeon about a body lift.

During a body lift your surgeon removes excess skin and tightens it around your waist and abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks and hips. The surgeon may also use liposuction to remove any excess stubborn fat.

Liposuction for Men

Liposuction for men is another type of body contouring but does not remove excess skin. It is a procedure that removes stubborn excess fat from different areas of the body such as the abdomen, love handles, double chin and the breasts.

Male Breast Reduction

Due to hormonal changes during puberty, you may develop excess glandular tissue that remains once puberty ends. This can leave you with overly large breasts, or man boobs, that are uncomfortable and make you feel self-conscious. If this is the case, you may want to have a breast reduction also known as gynecomastia surgery.

Your surgeon will make an incision behind the nipples to remove the fatty tissue so the end result is a more masculine chest. They may also use liposuction to remove any stubborn fat deposits to help give you a flat chest.
