It is often a big stretch for men to even consider a manicure so pursuing plastic surgery can be a tough decision for most men.
Many people assume that plastic surgery is all about women who wish for larger breasts, tighter stomachs, thinner thighs, and perfect skin. however there are several options for men who wish to correct the signs of aging and re-gain that toned and fit physique.
For many men due to extreme weight loss, medications, or biological reasons, sagging or enlarged breasts can be a very embarrassing and uncomfortable issue. Men suffering with this problem can benefit from male breast surgery (gynecomastia surgery) which reduces the breast with either liposuction or a combination of liposuction and the excision of excess tissue. Depending on the extent of the surgery, this procedure can be performed in our office under local anesthesia or at the surgery center under general anesthesia. Downtime is about 3-5 days depending on whether or not excision of tissue is involved.
For men who have lost a significant amount of weight, the excess skin that does not tighten up around the stomach can be frustrating. a tummy tuck procedure to remove the excess skin and tighten up the abdominal muscles is a great solution. a sleek, toned stomach can help men get back their self-confidence and increase their self-esteem. Typically, this procedure is performed under general anesthesia at the surgery center. Downtime is about 7-10 days and no working out for about 4-6 weeks.
Liposuction can also be a great fit for men who just cannot seem to lose those stubborn love handles or that extra weight around the mid-section with diet and exercise. Liposuction is a quick in office procedure under local anesthesia with amazing results. Downtime is about 2-3 days with no further restrictions.
Lastly, please don’t forget your skin! Men can benefit from Botox, skincare, peels, and laser therapy just as much as women. a youthful, strong appearance is attractive and no one has to know how you maintain it. Botox can ease the wrinkles across your forehead, between your brows, and around your eyes. Peels and laser therapy can help with deeper wrinkles and brown spots due to sun exposure, smoking, and overall aging.
As you can see, there are multiple options for cosmetic surgery for men. whether it is skincare or major surgery, it is never too late to take care of yourself and look your best.
