More and more men are taking a proactive approach to enhancing their appearance. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of male plastic surgery patients has been on the rise since 2000. Below Louisville plastic surgeon Dr. Sean Maguire discusses the results men can expect from plastic surgery, from rejuvenated, younger looking skin to sculpted, masculine contours.
A More Masculine Chest
Men with gynecomastia, also known as “man boobs,” often feel self-conscious about their physical appearance, especially in public. In fact, male breast reduction surgery, the procedure that corrects gynecomastia, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures among men in the U.S. Gynecomastia creates overdeveloped breast tissue, resulting in enlarged, and sometimes sagging, male breasts. Male breast reduction surgery removes excess fat, tissues and skin, flattening and toning the patient’s chest. Most men recover from the surgery within days and are able to feel confident about their more masculine looking chest within days.
Restored Youth with Facelift
Men are not immune to the physical signs of aging, including wrinkles, crow’s feet and drooping facial skin. Dr. Maguire is highly trained and experienced in performing facelift procedures for men looking to shed years off their appearance. The contours of the face are raised and tightened, removing creases and sagging skin for a more youthful facial appearance. Brow lift surgery is also an option for patients wishing to eliminate crow’s feet or wrinkles on the brows. Dr. Maguire also offers non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments. Both Botox and Dysport injections block nerve impulses to muscles, temporarily relaxing muscles that cause wrinkles in the face.
A Toned Physique with Body Contouring
Men who have lost a lot of weight and are left with small, stubborn fat deposits in several areas of the body can put the finishing touches to their physiques with body contouring. A body lift can eliminate excess, hanging fat and skin. The remaining skin is smoothed and tightened. A body lift targets sagging skin on the arms, back, abdominal area, buttocks, hips and thighs. Dr. Maguire performs other body contouring procedures that aim to tone and trim a patient’s body. Men who have “love handles,” or small, hanging fat deposits on the sides of the stomach should consider liposuction, while those who want to tone their abdominal area may prefer tummy tuck surgery.
Confidence with Rhinoplasty
The number of male rhinoplasty procedures performed has increased in recent years, as more men seek to improve the size or shape of their nose. An unattractive bump on the bridge of the nose or asymmetrical nostrils can make men feel self-conscious about their noses and overall appearance. By enhancing the nose, balance and beauty is restored to the face, giving men the confidence they need to meet and interact with others. Dr. Maguire customizes each rhinoplasty procedure to fit the needs and goals of each patient.
