Male Plastic Surgery
Although traditionally viewed as a way for women to improve their appearance, more and more men are now seeking plastic surgery to enhance their appearance as well, for both personal and professional purposes. A smooth, youthful-looking appearance, along with the self-confidence that often accompanies, makes for a strong first impression and allows for men of all ages to look as good as they feel about themselves.
We offer several cosmetic treatments targeted specifically for the unique needs and goals of male patients. These procedures produce aesthetically-pleasing yet masculine results that allow patients to improve their look while maintaining a natural appearance.
Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia) affects nearly 40-60% of men, often with no known cause. This condition can be highly embarrassing as well as physically uncomfortable. Men who feel self-conscious about enlarged breasts may seek breast reduction surgery. The procedure removes fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in some cases excess skin as well. The result is a flatter, firmer chest.
A defined, muscular chest is an attractive physical feature desired by many men. Though this can often be achieved through exercise, some men have trouble developing their pectoral muscles. Pectoral implants can increase the size and prominence of the chest, creating a toned, sculpted look and enhancing your overall appearance.
Made of a firm, yet soft and flexible silicone, pectoral implants will not leak or break, and do not affect the natural muscle functionality. Implants are placed endoscopically under the pectoral muscle through a small incision in the armpit and held in place with sutures. These implants provide permanent pectoral enhancement with no need for follow-up surgery. Many patients combine pectoral implants with liposuction for maximum results.
Many men desire large, defined biceps, but are unable to achieve these goals through regular workouts, no matter how strenuous they may be. Fortunately, there are other ways to tone the arms and achieve the masculine appearance of their dreams. Bicep implants are made of soft silicone and are available in various shapes and sizes to produce each patient’s desired results. They are often placed in conjunction with tricep implants for a more complete enhancement.
Surgery for bicep implants involves an incision in the armpit or upper arm to conceal any visible scarring, and the creation of a pocket to place the implant, which is secured under the existing muscle. The results of this procedure are visible right away and designed to last a lifetime. Patients will still be able to work out after an initial recovery period.
Many male patients seek buttock implants to enhance flat or poorly developed buttocks for a fuller and more muscular shape in that area. These implants are often used for body-builders who are unable to develop gluteal muscles in proportion with the rest of their bodies, but can be used for any patient in good physical health who is unhappy with the appearance of their bottom. Placed above or below the muscle in pockets created by the surgeon, the buttock augmentation procedure is safely and effectively performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.
Implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes to best fit each patient’s body type and desired goal. The implants are made of soft silicone, which provides a firm, smooth and natural feel. For most patients, buttock augmentation is a highly successful and permanent procedure that significantly improves self-confidence and happiness about their appearance.
Despite rigorous exercise routines, many men cannot develop the calf muscles they desire and seek surgery to achieve their physical and aesthetic goals. Calf implants are ideal for patients with small, uneven or asymmetric calf muscles who desire a more shapely or athletic appearance. They can also help correct muscle imbalance caused by certain physical defects and restore a sense of proportion to the body.
Calf implants are placed during an outpatient procedure through an incision behind the knee. The surgeon creates a pocket to hold the implant and sutures it in place before closing the incision with minimal scarring. These implants can be placed on the inside or outside of the leg and are available in several different shapes and sizes so the procedure can be customized for each individual patient to achieve the most successful results.
