Male Plastic Surgery
Male plastic surgery is growing in acceptance and popularity with each passing year. The time has finally come when men feel comfortable admitting that improving their physical appearance is important to them—even if that improvement is made through the use of cosmetic procedures.
Male plastic surgery is a general term used to describe cosmetic treatments that target facial aging and body insecurities and are tailored to the male patient. Men can pick and choose from a variety of procedures to best fit their aesthetic needs.
What Can Male Plastic Surgery Achieve?
Angular Facial Contours
Men are just as susceptible to facial aging as women. Tissue breakdown, gravity, sun damage, and environmental factors all contribute to facial aging and can alter the overall shape of your face. Male plastic surgery can reduce the presence of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, and can restore masculine facial features, such as an angular jawline and defined cheekbones.
Trim and Sculpted Physique
Whether you have love handles, a dad bod, man boobs, or have lost a significant amount of weight that led to excess skin, male plastic surgery can help. Male body procedures can target excess fat or skin to reveal a smoother, tighter, and fitter physique.
Reduction of Physical Insecurities
Sometimes the changes in your physique and facial appearance are a response to an unhealthy lifestyle and bad habits. Other times, however, they are out of your control and due to aging or genetics. Whatever the cause, these changes can lead to insecurities and a diminished sense of confidence. We do recommend all patients focus on a healthy lifestyle, including a healthy diet and exercise habits. Often, plastic surgery can enhance what diet and exercise cannot, such as loose skin, or stubborn fatty areas. Male plastic surgery targets the root of those insecurities so that you can feel comfortable in your appearance.

Your recovery period will depend on the procedure (or combination of procedures) that you undergo. BOTOX® Cosmetic does not require much in the way of recovery, and men can return to their normal schedules the following day, if not the same day. Surgical procedures typically require one to two weeks of downtime with an additional two to four weeks of activity limitations.
Scars will form at the incision sites for all surgical procedures. Dr. George Alexander puts meticulous care into the placement and closure of these incisions to minimize scarring. He uses advanced, scar minimizing plastic surgery techniques. Almost all scars fade with time and can be improved by keeping the incisions out of the sun and applying silicone strips and gel if you feel they are necessary.
The cost of your male plastic surgery will vary depending on factors such as the applied techniques, anesthesia fees, certified facility fees, and surgical fees. Dr. George Alexander will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation that will include a breakdown of the expenses involved.
Surgical procedures often result in some discomfort; however, many describe their post-surgery pain levels as manageable and less than they expected. Dr. Alexander often uses a dual anesthetic technique, which provides outstanding comfort. Prescribed or over-the-counter pain medication, cold compresses, and compression garments are all instruments to enhance comfort during your recovery.
Male plastic surgery procedures may be performed simultaneously based on the global assessment of each patient’s overall medical health and the procedures desired. These recommendations are individualized to maximize safety and world-class results.
The longevity of your surgical outcome will depend on the procedure itself, as well as how well the results are maintained with lifestyle choices. Plastic surgery does not stop the progression of aging or prevent future weight gain, so we recommend that you follow a healthy lifestyle and maintain a stable weight for the best long-term results.
Plastic surgery has come a long way in terms of safety and comfort. Potential risks will always be present with surgery. While rare, complications may include:
- Reactions to anesthesia
- Fluid accumulation
- Poor wound healing
- Blood clots
Fortunately, with decades of dedicated, precision surgical care and experience, healthy patients following our advice tend to recover well.
