Increasingly, men are seeking out surgical and non-surgical procedures to enhance their appearance and make them look and feel more youthful. Dr. Grace provides a number of options for men whether they are looking for a little contouring of “love handles” or laser services for unwanted hair or facial lines.
What Can Male Plastic Surgery Improve?
Depending on the procedure, male plastic surgery can:
- Reverse the signs of facial aging
- Refine a particular facial feature
- Contour the body
- Reduce oversized breasts
Body contouring: Men who would like a tighter and more toned midsection may consider tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) that removes excess fat and skin. Or, Dr. Grace can tone other parts of the body with liposuction surgery, which eliminates localized fat deposits or can define a man’s “six-pack” abs. Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures for men and Dr. Grace may use traditional liposuction, Smartlipo, SlimLipo or Body Jet to help men achieve the results they are looking for. For more details on these procedures, see the Body Contouring Section of our website.
Facial rejuvenation: Dr. Grace’s male patients may request a facelift to comprehensively address signs of facial aging (e.g., fat displacement, saggy skin, droopy features), or eyelid lift to target aging eyes. Men who are not yet ready to undergo surgery may opt for less-invasive treatments such as injections of neuromuscular blockers to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines or creases between the eyebrows. Another option is laser skin resurfacing, which removes the top layer of damaged skin to reveal fresh, healthy skin underneath for a brighter and more even complexion. Photofacial treatments use broadband light to reduce the appearance of sun damage, spider veins, sunspots and facial redness. Some men benefit from new skin care products that nourish and protect the facial skin.
Male breast reduction: One of the most commonly performed male plastic surgery procedures at Dr. Grace’s practice is male breast reduction to treat enlarged male breasts (a condition otherwise known as gynecomastia). Gynecomastia may develop as a result of hormonal changes, genetic factors or the use of certain drugs or medications. Male breast reduction removes excess glandular and fatty tissue via liposuction or surgical excision techniques. Unlike traditional breast reduction surgery performed on women, male breast reductions can help restore a more masculine appearance to the chest.
If you are interested in male plastic surgery, Dr. Grace will sit down with you to listen to your concerns and provide his honest recommendations. Together, you will develop a treatment plan that addresses your concerns and delivers your desired results with the most aesthetically pleasing outcome. You will go into surgery feeling very informed, with a full understanding of your procedure and a good idea of what you can expect post-operatively.
