Men and Plastic Surgery
Male – Specific considerations
What can men anticipate on their journey through plastic surgery? In our culture, the emphasis on maintaining a youthful and fit appearance is significant. Presently, men from diverse age groups and backgrounds are increasingly seeking plastic surgery for aesthetic reasons.
Men's objectives may include achieving a more proportionate nose, a revitalized face, and a trimmer waistline. Procedures employed to attain these goals must consider factors such as skin thickness, beard growth, and body type.
Neurotoxins The cosmetic application of botulinum toxin, commonly known as "Botox," is a popular injectable that temporarily reduces or eliminates facial fine lines and wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin can be utilized to:
Smooth crow's feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, lip lines, and bunny lines
Diminish neck bands
Enhance the appearance of skin dimpling on the chin
Lift the corners of the mouth
Soften a square jawline
Correct a gummy smile
Eyelid Surgery Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical intervention aimed at enhancing the appearance of the eyelids. This procedure can address concerns on both the upper and lower lids.
Eyelid surgery can address issues like:
Loose or sagging skin causing folds or disrupting the natural contour of the upper eyelid, potentially affecting vision
Fatty deposits leading to puffiness in the eyelids
Bags under the eyes
Drooping lower eyelids revealing white below the iris
Excess skin and fine wrinkles on the lower eyelid
Liposuction, often colloquially referred to as "lipo," is a procedure designed to slim and reshape specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, thereby enhancing body contours and proportions.
Liposuction can be performed on areas such as:
Hips and buttocks
Abdomen and waist
Upper arms
Inner knee
Chest area
Cheeks, chin, and neck
Calves and ankles
Neck Lift A neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical method focused on improving visible signs of aging in the jawline and neck.
Neck lift surgery can address concerns like:
Excess fat and skin relaxation in the lower face, leading to jowls
Excess fatty deposits under the chin
Loose neck skin
Muscle banding in the neck creating abnormal contours
Gynecomastia Surgery Gynecomastia surgery aims to reduce breast size in men, thereby flattening and enhancing chest contours. This surgical procedure addresses gynecomastia, a condition characterized by overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men, potentially arising from hormonal changes, heredity, obesity, or certain medications.
Hair Transplant Hair transplant surgery is performed to restore hair in bald or thinning areas of the scalp. Various methods, including hair transplantation, flap surgery, tissue expansion, and scalp reduction, can be used alone or in combination for hair replacement. Hair transplantation involves extracting small portions of hair-bearing scalp from a donor site and using them as grafts to relocate to areas with hair loss.

Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction Surgery)

Gynecomastia Surgery
Male Breast Reduction Surgery
What is the purpose of gynecomastia surgery? Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure aimed at reducing breast size in men, ultimately flattening and refining the contours of the chest.
In severe instances of gynecomastia, where excess breast tissue weight leads to sagging and stretching of the areola (the dark skin around the nipple), surgical intervention becomes necessary. In such cases, the surgical procedure involves improving the position and size of the areola, along with the reduction of excess skin.
The technical term for plastic surgery addressing gynecomastia is reduction mammaplasty.
What is gynecomastia? Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the overdevelopment or enlargement of breasts in men, which can manifest at any age. This condition may result from hormonal fluctuations, hereditary factors, obesity, or the use of specific medications.
Gynecomastia can have emotional repercussions, impacting self-confidence and causing discomfort. Some men may go to great lengths to conceal the condition, even avoiding certain physical activities and intimate situations.
The features of gynecomastia include:
Accumulation of excess localized fat
Development of excess glandular tissue
Occasionally, the presence of excess breast skin
Occurring unilaterally (in one breast) or bilaterally (in both breasts)
