Plastic surgery for men is becoming increasingly popular. As times have changed, more males are having cosmetic plastic surgery and investing in their faces, chest, and bodies.
Men’s cosmetic surgery has expanded in both the volume and public interest. Plastic surgery in men is incredibly popular today and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction), placement of pectoral implants and abdominal liposuction are some of the most popular procedures among male plastic surgery patients.
One thing is clear the taboos are over:
Men want their bodies and face to look the best that they can.
The many options for plastic surgery procedures can be enlightening for men and can help boost confidence and encourage a better self-image. Let’s review examples of male plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery for more men.
Male Plastic Surgery for the Face:
Blepharoplasty, male eyelid surgery to rejuvenate the eyelids.
This facial cosmetic surgery for men is one of the most requested procedures. It involves the removal of excess skin on the upper eyelid and the removal of the eye bags that appear under the eyelids.
The main benefit of eyelid surgery is that on the one hand, it eliminates the feeling of “looking tired”, can improve vision and can provide a younger look. Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. David Azouz performs the surgery in such a way that there is no perceptible scar.
The key to eyelid surgery in men is to avoid feminizing the eyelid.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Azouz focuses on providing men a natural and masculine look with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Another benefit of eyelid surgery is that it can improve the symmetry of the face and remove dark circles under the eyelids. Some patients can have improvements in their vision if the skin is blocking light reaching the eye.
Neck lifts are another of the most requested cosmetic surgeries for men.
A neck lift or inferior rhytidectomy is incredibly popular in both young and older men. Both younger men and older men seek to remove their double chin through neck liposuction and desire a stronger jawline via a chin implant. Increasing the strength of the jawline and removing the double chin can provide an overall more masculine look and a slimmer appearance.
Neck Liposuction can provide a slimmer and more masculine appearance.
Older men often desire a traditional neck lift, whereby Dr. Azouz removes excess skin and jowling of the neck. Dr. Azouz utilizes a hidden incision around the hairline of the patient’s ears while not altering the hair of the beard or sideburns. Dr. Azouz conceals the incisions around the back of the ear, which hides scarring.
Dr. Azouz uses advanced liposuction techniques in neck lift and facelift patients. Removing platysmal bands can also be performed in either a neck lift or a facelift.
Men’s plastic surgery: rhinoplasty (nose job), a classic of cosmetic surgery.
Rhinoplasty can provide dramatic results by remodeling the nose to provide a more cosmetic and symmetric appearance. A nose that is in harmony with the rest of the face can provide a more aesthetic look. Rhinoplasty is used to remove a prominent nasal hump, refine the tip of the nose and can correct asymmetry.
Cosmetic rhinoplasty can also be combined with functional rhinoplasty to improve breathing. With functional rhinoplasty, Dr. Azouz can straighten the nasal septum and reduce the nasal turbinates. These techniques can improve airflow through the nose, can improve a man’s sense of smell and can even reduce the incidence of sinusitis.
The fact is that more and more men are seeking rhinoplasty for both functional and cosmetic improvements.
Male Plastic Surgery for the Chest:
Eliminating male breast tissue with men’s cosmetic surgery: gynecomastia and liposuction.
Gynecomastia in men is incredibly common and can be attributed to many medications, hormones, steroids, and marijuana use.
Liposuction and removal of gynecomastia (male breast reduction) is the best surgical solution for patients who have an increase in breast tissue who want a flatter, more sculpted chest or are bothered by prominent or puffy nipples. Gynecomastia surgery is well tolerated and is performed under local anesthesia and sedation on an outpatient basis.
Most men choose to remove gynecomastia and then work out to build up the pectoral muscles. Male pectoral implants are commonly used for patients with Poland syndrome or for those who have significant chest asymmetry.
Dr. Azouz performs liposuction and removal of gynecomastia with quick recovery, without drains and with camouflaged incisions.
Male Plastic Surgery for the Body:
Liposuction for men is used to eliminate the accumulated fat in certain areas of the body that is stubborn and hard to lose with workouts. The most frequent areas treated are the abdomen, hips, and flanks. In men, it is common to find this accumulation of fat in the abdomen and iliac rolls as compared to the leg. Liposuction is associated with quick recovery and is performed with local anesthesia and sedation.
Tummy tucks and lower body lifts are common for men who have lost significant weight or have had bariatric surgery in the past. A tummy tuck can be used to remove excess skin, stretch marks and scarring. Many men choose to perform a tummy tuck at the same time they have their rectus diastasis or hernia repair performed. A tummy tuck can be combined with male breast reduction (gynecomastia) surgery or with liposuction. Are you a man considering having cosmetic surgery? The cost of male plastic surgery is affordable for most patients and financing options are available. Insurance can sometimes play a role if male plastic surgery is deemed medically necessary.
