Surgery for Men
Today more than ever men seek cosmetic plastic surgery procedures. The reasons are complex, reflecting an increased awareness of cosmetic surgery and a growth in decision making by men in health care issues. Men now take increasing responsibility for their own choices in cosmetic plastic surgery. If you are in Modesto, Stockton, Walnut Creek, or Concord, CA and considering plastic surgery, visit our photo gallery to see before and after photographs of real patients just like you.
Men in the Bay Area have many reasons to choose facial plastic surgery in the Walnut Creek area. Request your consultation online at Dr. McNemar's Tracy or San Ramon cosmetic surgery offices.
Plastic Surgery for Men
Competition in the business world imposes a common viewpoint. Businessmen turn to cosmetic surgery as a way to shift the stigma that an older man is not trendy and therefore not as effective as a younger man in the very same job. Men have special needs when it comes to plastic surgery, and there are some 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 San Ramon or 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.
