What Can Men Improve with Plastic Surgery?
Male patients tend to have similar goals when it comes to plastic surgery. Through aesthetic enhancement procedures, they can often accomplish the following benefits:
- Sculpt the chest for a more masculine appearance
- Remove excess fat and loose skin for a more athletic physique
- Increase jawline definition for a stronger shape
- Improve nasal shape and size for a balanced aesthetic
- Smooth wrinkles for a rejuvenated look
What Are Common Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men?
Although typically associated with women, surgical and non-surgical aesthetic enhancement procedures are becoming more and more popular among men. The fact is, we all have certain things we would like to change about our appearance, and new statistics show a growing trend reflecting a desire among males to address signs of age, excess fat, and other conditions that affect the skin, face, and body. Some of the most common plastic surgery procedures sought by men include:
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)
Many men suffer from gynecomastia, a condition which results in excess skin, fat, and sometimes even glandular tissue in the breasts, giving them an enlarged chest appearance. Gynecomastia typically begins in adolescence and can give men feelings of extreme self-consciousness. The condition can also lead to serious psychological problems like depression. Male breast reduction surgery from our cosmetic plastic surgeon can recontour the breast area by removing excess tissue and fat. The procedure is designed to give men a tighter, more contoured chest. Liposuction may also be part of male breast reduction procedures in order to achieve optimal results.
Liposuction is one of the most popular and effective surgical options to eliminate excess fat pockets around the body. Sometimes, no matter how much you diet and exercise, areas of the body retain fat that won’t go away. Liposuction is commonly performed on men to remove excess fat in the arms, thighs, midsection, love handles, and many other body areas.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
A tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) is designed to tighten separated abdominal muscles and give the stomach area a more taut, fit appearance. Dr. Cohen can give men a more athletic-looking stomach area by removing excess skin folds and fat that has been unresponsive to traditional weight loss methods.
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) can address lifelong issues that you may have with the shape and size of the nose. A rhinoplasty can provide men with a recontoured nose that gives the entire face a more balanced appearance. The procedure can also help those affected by sinus problems and other nasal conditions.
Some of the most apparent signs of aging and exhaustion occur around the eyes. With eyelid surgery, medically referred to as blepharoplasty, men can have sagginess, puffiness, and “bags” significantly reduced to give the eyes a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
As we get older, the face undergoes a number of changes—from skin sagging, muscles becoming lax, and wrinkles forming. While some signs of aging can make a man look distinguished, others may create a tired, angry, or overall dull facial appearance. Facelift surgery, often combined with a neck lift, can tighten the skin and underlying musculature for a refreshed and youthful aesthetic.
A strong jawline is often associated with masculinity, but not everyone has this naturally defined lower facial area. From loose skin in the lower face and neck to excess fatty tissue underneath the chin—certain cosmetic concerns can detract from an otherwise masculine jaw shape. For those with a “double chin” caused by excess fat, liposuction can be performed in the upper neck. If loose or sagging skin is preventing a defined jawline, neck lift surgery can be an ideal solution for improving contour.
BOTOX® Cosmetic & Other Injectables
For less invasive treatment to address signs of aging in the face, Dr. Cohen offers a variety of injectable options such as BOTOX® Cosmetic. These procedures address wrinkles and fine lines in the face, targeting specific areas and injecting them with a solution that smoothes out the skin for a more youthful aesthetic. The results from injectable cosmetic enhancement can last for months, and can be maintained with follow-up treatments. Plus, there is little to no recovery time with most injectable options, and the procedure can be completed over your lunch-hour.
How Does Plastic Surgery Differ for Men?
Just as plastic surgery must be tailored to each patient to achieve the best possible results, men and women have different physical needs and aesthetic preferences that must be accounted for when planning surgery. These specifications require an experienced surgeon to customize surgery according to a male patient’s unique goals. In general, men often prefer a masculine aesthetic with more defined contours, while women tend to prefer softer, feminine features. Dr. Cohen considers a number of factors when consulting with a male patient, including their cosmetic goals, body type, skin thickness, and hair growth. These will all affect the specific details of their custom surgical plan.
How Much Does Male Plastic Surgery Cost?
The cost of male plastic surgery will vary according to the specific procedure, or combination of procedures, performed. Additional factors that will influence the total cost include the extent of your treatment needs, geographic area of the practice, expertise of your plastic surgeon, and associated fees like anesthesia and surgical facility costs. After your consultation with Dr. Cohen, our team can provide you with a cost estimate for your treatment plan to help you understand what to expect. If you would like to divide your total cost into smaller, monthly payments, we accept financing through multiple lenders for your convenience.
