Increasingly, men are seeking out surgical and non-surgical procedures to enhance their appearances and look more youthful. Dr. Grace and Dr. Tutino provide a number of options for men, whether they are looking for contouring of “love handles” or laser services for unwanted hair and 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
Men who would like a tighter and more toned midsection may consider a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) that removes excess fat and skin. Dr. Grace and Dr. Tutino can tone other parts of the body with liposuction surgery, which eliminates localized fat deposits and can define abdominals. Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures for men; the doctors 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.
Male patients may request a facelift to address signs of facial aging (e.g., fat displacement, saggy skin, droopy features). Eyelid lifts to raise droopy eyelid skin are also popular among our male patients. Patients who are not yet ready to undergo surgery may opt for less-invasive treatments, such as cosmetic injectables minimize the appearance of crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines or creases between the eyebrows. Another option is laser skin resurfacing; this treatment removes the top layer of damaged skin to reveal fresh, healthy skin and an even complexion. Photofacial treatments use broadband light to reduce the appearance of sun damage, spider veins, sunspot, and facial redness. Some men benefit from skin care products that nourish and protect the facial skin.
Male Breast Reduction
One of the most commonly performed male plastic surgery procedures at the practice is male breast reduction to treat enlarged breasts (gynecomastia). Gynecomastia is a condition which may develop as a result of hormonal changes, genetic factors, or the use of certain drugs and medications. Male breast reduction involves removing excess glandular and fatty tissue via liposuction or surgical excision. The goal of treatment is to help restore a more masculine appearance to the chest.
