Plastic Surgery for Men

Men have special and specific needs when it comes to plastic surgery, and there are special operations just for men. Although rarely discussed, enlarged male breasts (also known as gynecomastia) are a common condition. Gynecomastia affects approximately 40 to 60 percent of men. In most cases, there is no known cause for the gynecomastia, although there has been correlation with obesity, drug use, and some medical conditions. By removing fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts, men who feel self-conscious about their appearance can gain new confidence.

Common Male Plastic Surgery

Cosmetic surgery in men uses many of the same procedures as in women. However, because of the structure of a man’s body there are many technical differences. For example, the skin in men is thicker and in the facial area contains hair. Cosmetic procedures such as eyelid surgery, nose surgery, and facial-implant surgery are performed essentially the same way for men and women. If you are seeking a more masculine look to your facial features — a chin with better projection, more prominent cheekbones, a stronger nose — these are all available by using facial implants, rhinoplasty, or a face lift in Tracy.

Liposuction and body contouring are also popular male procedures. The ideal male body shape is considered to be trim and athletic-looking, with broad shoulders and chest, a flat abdomen, and a narrow hip-thigh area. However, as men age, areas of fat tend to accumulate around the abdomen, the flanks (“love handles”), the breast area (a condition called gynecomastia), and along the chin and neck. Men sometimes seek liposuction in the Walnut Creek area to remove these fatty deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. View our before and after photos of Vaser liposuction in the Tummy Tucks section. In many cases, liposuction alone can effectively correct problem areas. Men retain their skin elasticity longer than women do, and the areas of fat beneath the skin tend to be firmer and more vascular than those in women. Because of these and other factors, liposuction in men is usually very effective.

Look Great Without Surgery

In addition to surgery, there are also other non-surgical services that can help men improve their appearance, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic. Dr. McNemar understands the special needs of his male patients and looks forward to helping you enhance your image.

Today, men of all ages and all walks of life are requesting plastic surgery in Tracy, California. Men’s goals include a more balanced nose, a rejuvenated face, a trimmer waistline. The procedures used to achieve these goals must take into consideration factors such as skin thickness, beard growth, or body type. Request a consultation today or call our Tracy office (209) 834-0626 to make your appointment.
