Although traditionally viewed as a way for women to improve their appearance, more men are now seeking plastic surgery to enhance their appearance for both personal and professional reasons. A youthful looking appearance and self-confidence often make a strong first impression; and cosmetic surgery is allowing 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 masculine results that allow patients to improve their look while maintaining a natural appearance.
Enlarged male breasts (gynecomastia) affect 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 excess skin in some cases. The result is a flatter and firmer chest.
A defined muscular chest is an attractive physical feature desired by many men. Even though this physique 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 and sculpted look that enhances your overall appearance.
Pectoral implants are made of a firm, yet soft and flexible silicone. They 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 from regular workouts, therefore bicep implants may be a suitable option. 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 made in the armpit or upper arm to conceal any visible scarring; 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 their flat or poorly developed buttocks for a fuller and more muscular shape. 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. The implants are 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 providing a firm, smooth and natural feel. For most patients, buttock augmentation is a highly successful and permanent procedure that significantly improves one’s self-confidence and satisfaction about their appearance.
Despite rigorous exercise routines, many men cannot develop the calf muscles they desire and prefer 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. The implants can also help correct muscle imbalance caused by certain physical defects and can 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 optimal results.
