Plastic Surgery Isn’t Just for Women: Popular Procedures for Men
When it comes to plastic surgery, women are certainly getting the most benefit. They are by far the biggest consumers of plastic surgery, receiving about 87% of all cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S. Men—you’re missing out! Cosmetic surgery can benefit BOTH men and women. Let’s learn about some of the procedures our male patients should consider.
Male Breast Reduction
Let’s face it—we’ve all heard jokes about “man boobs”. For those who have them, however, it’s no laughing matter. In fact, men with overdeveloped breast tissue often experience a great deal of anxiety about their appearance and often shy away from activities in which they’ll have to remove their shirts. If you have them, you may benefit from male breast reduction. This is a fairly simple surgical procedure that can eliminate this excess breast tissue and restore confidence. Depending on your anatomy, Dr. Waldorf or Dr. Zarella may suggest one of the following options: liposuction, surgical excision, or both. Liposuction can remove fatty tissue from the breast area while surgical excision can remove excess skin and glandular tissue. If needed the areola (nipple) can be moved to a more central location. More than 26,000 male breast reduction procedures were performed last year in the U.S.
You work hard at the gym, but you’re not seeing the results you expect. That six pack is always covered by a thin layer of fat in spite of your best efforts. Uncover the muscle you’ve worked so hard to achieve with liposuction. This procedure can remove unwanted fat pockets and help you to achieve the sculpted look you’ve always wanted. Last year, men received about 12% of all liposuctions, but we’d love to see this percentage increase. Liposuction isn’t just for the ladies.
The top cosmetic surgical procedure for men last year, rhinoplasty can reshape your nose, putting it into balance with your other facial features. If your nose is too large or too small, has an unwanted hump or bump, we can help. Many men opt for rhinoplasty to correct aesthetic and breathing problems that develop after a broken nose. With over 20 years of experience in the field, Dr. Waldorf is a highly experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. She can help you transform your nose while still retaining a masculine appearance.
Have you lost a substantial amount of weight? Men who have undergone bariatric surgery to lose weight often turn to cosmetic surgery to restore their bodies after weight loss. Procedures like a tummy tuck, arm lift, thigh lift, etc. can remove excess skin after weight loss. Removing excess skin can complete your weight loss journey and make it easier to keep the pounds off.
