Common Procedures For Men

Male cosmetic surgery procedures are gaining in popularity and social acceptance as never before. Statistics show that male procedures have increased by as much as 10% per year over the last decade. We are also seeing this trend in our plastic surgery centers in Long Island and New York City.

Facial plastic surgery on the face, nose, ears, eyes, and neck can recapture a man's youthful facial characteristics and improve his self-confidence. Body procedures such as liposuction or male breast reduction can bring a man back to being comfortable in public and to getting out and enjoying life again. Of all the cosmetic procedures done on patients overall, the fastest growing group of surgery recipients are men. See our list below of some of the most common procedures for men.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia is a condition in which the male breast becomes enlarged due to extra fatty tissue and/or glandular tissue.  This produces what some call "man boobs," or female-like breasts on men. Gynecomastia can be devastating for its sufferers, as they retreat from normal activities and from physical contact with others, and wear baggy clothes to hide themselves.

Blepharoplasty (Eyelid and Eyelift Surgery)

Eyes droop and sag as we age. This can be caused by a number of changes in the eyes including thinner skin that has lost its elasticity, muscles that have relaxed and are now loose, as well as a build-up of fatty tissue underneath the eyes (those luggage bags under the eyes).

All of these age-related effects can be reversed with a blepharoplasty. During this cosmetic surgery procedure, you will be anesthetized under general anesthesia. Your eyelids will be tightened gently and excess skin will be removed to give the eye a more youthful position.

Calf and Pectoral Implants

When weight lifting and exercise have not achieved the chest contour or calf muscles that were expected, cosmetic enhancement of these muscles can be a huge boost to their ego and self-esteem. Calf and chest implants can be inserted underneath the muscles to provide an added boost to the projection of the muscles.

For our cosmetic surgery patients who are looking for a more natural source for enhancing the calves or pecks, fat from their own body can be used instead of a silicone implant device.

By using the patient's own fat, body sculpting of other areas can be achieved while at the same time giving the patient a more pronounced musculature. The fat transfer (fat grafting) procedure can be done on patients who have enough body fat to harvest from. If not enough body fat is present, silicone implants are the very best option.

Chin and Cheek Implants

Sometimes, all a man needs is a little cosmetic enhancement of the cheeks or chin to give his face that masculine edge and to balance out his facial proportions. Chin implants can bring a more masculine angle to the jaw from both the front and side profiles as well as balancing out the projection of the nose in cases where a man's chin is too short for how far his nose projects.

Cheek implants can provide just the right touch to a man's face to widen it, giving it a manlier look. They can also fill in cheeks that have sunken with age, giving the face a younger appearance.

Ear Surgery (Otoplasty), Earlobe Repair, and Ear Pinning

Many of our patients have suffered for years with ears that are too large, stick out too much, or were disfigured in an injury during childhood. For some other patients, they have used ear plugs and overstretched or ripped their earlobes.

Fortunately, there are numerous benefits to correcting ears with plastic surgery. The changes to our patients' quality of life are dramatic and last a lifetime. It is a one-time solution to a lifetime of embarrassment.

Forehead Lift (Brow Lift) and Facelift

This group of face procedures is not only one of the most popular (by volume) but can bring men the most dramatic results to both their face and self-esteem. As we age, certain features of the face begin to sag, fold, wrinkle and crease. Muscles lose their firmness and skin begins to look old due to the loss of elasticity.

Sun exposure over a lifetime can also speed up the rate at which our skin begins to show the signs of aging. Years of beach-going, surfing, motorcycle riding, outdoor activities and daily sun exposure without the use of sunscreen all add up over the years.

Laser Liposuction Using SmartLipo (Body Sculpting)

Time can take its toll on the male body as gravity begins to bring certain parts of the body into lower positions than when we were younger. Additionally, age-related weight gain and inactive lifestyles can all contribute to a patient being unhappy with how he looks.

No matter what the concern; love handles, a protruding gut, turkey neck (wattle), or the desire to slim down the torso, thighs or buttocks…laser liposuction can help!

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

A nose that is too large or small, has too much projection (or not enough) as well as a nose that is crooked from an injury can create facial imbalance in a man. Our faces give people their first impressions of us; and our nose is one of the features that people notice first.

The nose provides the entire face with balance and proportion. This is a natural phenomenon that is ingrained in our perceptions of others. For example, we immediately notice when someone's eyes that are too far apart or close together.

Similarly, a nose that does not proportionate to a man's face can be spotted in a millisecond. A nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) procedure can offer our patients a way to balance their nose with the rest of their facial features.
