While many people typically associate plastic surgery with women, men also struggle with the natural aging process and wish to enhance their overall appearance.
Whether you would like to treat facial imperfections, such as wrinkles or fine lines, or eliminate excess fat that makes your chest look feminine, there are various plastic surgery procedures for men you can undergo to achieve a chiseled and defined appearance.
What Makes Me a Good Candidate for Surgery?
Patients who are considering plastic surgery must be in good health, nonsmokers, and have realistic expectations regarding their final results. You may benefit from plastic surgery if you struggle with one or more of the following concerns:
- Stubborn and unwanted fat
- A weak jawline
- Loose, hanging skin
- Visible facial imperfections
What Are My Procedure Options?
The effects of aging can cause many men to develop heavy jowls, wrinkles, lines, and loose skin, which causes their cheeks to sag and the jawline to disappear. The signs of aging in the mid to lower face can be significantly reduced by undergoing facelift surgery. By making small incisions around the ears or hairline, skin can be pulled back to create a smoother, younger appearance.
Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Many men, whether young or old, can develop a condition called gynecomastia, where excess fat develops on their chest, making it look feminine and causing them to feel self-conscious. Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction, can help a man get rid of “man boobs” while providing them with a contoured and masculine chest.
Lower Body Lift Surgery
Unwanted fat and excess skin that have developed with age or weight loss and that will not go away despite all the effort put into going to the gym can discourage many men and make them feel insecure about their body.
Excess fat can be especially frustrating for patients who desire a muscular-looking physique. Lower body lift surgery can address stubborn fat and loose skin in multiple areas of the body, including the abdomen, back, flanks, and thighs to produce a toned and slim appearance.
Less Invasive Options
Men who desire a less invasive approach to treating facial imperfections like wrinkles, fine lines, and creases can turn to options such as skincare regimens, injectable fillers, and other less invasive treatments. There is a wide range of fillers that patients can choose from to achieve a youthful and firm appearance. These include:
- JUVÉDERM® XC
- Sculptra® Aesthetic
