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.

Popular Male Plastic Surgery Procedures

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic

    BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment that temporarily blocks chemical signals to the muscles that cause wrinkles to form. BOTOX® Cosmetic can slow down the development of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead lines that develop from repeated facial movements.

  • Facelift

    Facelift surgery targets aging on the lower two-thirds of the face. This surgical procedure addresses facial laxity by trimming excess skin, tightening the underlying tissues and muscle, and often reducing collections of fat. This results in smoother skin, restored cheek contours, a more angular jawline, and a younger-looking neck.

  • Eyelid Surgery

    Eyelid surgery removes upper eyelid hooding and lower eyelid bags by trimming excess skin and repositioning or removing fat deposits. Eyelid surgery targets the signs of aging caused by eyelid skin, fatty bulging, sun damage, and gravity. This procedure can open up the eyes, creating a more youthful and rested appearance.

  • Liposuction

    Poor diet, stress, lack of sleep, and even genetics contribute to the formation of unwanted fat pockets all over the body. While these deposits can sometimes be addressed through exercise and a healthy diet, stubborn and resistant areas sometimes benefit from surgical intervention. Liposuction removes excess fat from the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and chest.

  • Tummy Tuck Surgery

    Tummy tuck surgery targets skin laxity on the abdomen that has resulted from weight loss and aging. This procedure restores a fit and firm abdominal contour by trimming excess skin. Tummy tuck surgery is commonly combined with liposuction, which removes excess fat.

  • Gynecomastia Surgery

    Gynecomastia is characterized by the presence of enlarged male breasts. This can be due to excess breast tissue, excess fat, or a combination of both. Gynecomastia can be treated with liposuction or through surgical excision of the tissue (liposuction is best for excess fat). This procedure can help men gain confidence by attaining a more masculine-looking chest.

Concerns

Recovery

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

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.

Cost

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.

Comfort

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.

FAQ

  • Can these procedures be performed together?

    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.

  • Will my results be permanent?

    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.

  • Is male plastic surgery safe?

    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
    • Bleeding
    • Swelling
    • Bruising
    • Infection
    • Fluid accumulation
    • Poor wound healing
    • Blood clots
