How Does Plastic Surgery Differ for Men?
Although Dr. Babbitt will always defer to each individual’s concerns and cosmetic goals, there are certain features often preferred by male patients to create masculine, defined, sharper contours. This is in contrast to the typical preferences of female patients more inclined toward slimmer, softer, smoother results. During an initial consultation, treatments will be determined based on an in-depth aesthetic discussion, health evaluation, and review of body type and skin/hair texture to create the optimal customized surgical plan.
What Are Common Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men?
Plastic Surgery of Southern New England offers a variety of cosmetic procedures designed specifically for the aesthetic goals and anatomical needs of men. The most in-demand procedures requested by male patients at our practice include:
Medically referred to as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both to reduce puffiness, bagginess, wrinkles, and signs of fatigue to create a more revitalized look. Blepharoplasty can also help to correct impaired vision caused by excess tissue or skin hanging over the eyes.
Considered to be one of the top solutions for facial rejuvenation, facelift surgery can smooth wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin in the lower two-thirds of the face by lifting and tightening facial tissues. When performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, facelifts are designed to offer a refreshed appearance while keeping anatomical features for male patients in mind.
Individuals seeking a more prominent, distinct jawline may benefit from a chin augmentation to boost their facial profile. Chin implants are available in many sizes to offer a more masculine appearance unique to each patient, while still looking natural and serving as a long-term enhancement option.
Gynecomastia surgery, also referred to as male breast reduction, is intended to reduce excess glandular tissue and/or fat in the chest, tighten the chest area, and create a more toned appearance. Gynecomastia surgery can help repair concerns related to a surplus of glandular tissue (true gynecomastia), fatty tissue (pseudogynecomastia), or both glandular and fatty tissues via excision, liposuction, or a combination of the two techniques.
Liposuction has retained its popularity as an effective treatment for removing stubborn excess fat pockets that are resistant to a healthy diet and exercise. Male patients typically elect this procedure to further sculpt their physique and achieve more defined, slimmed-down contours. Liposuction can be performed on most areas of the body including the abdomen, love handles, chest, arms, and back.
