Many individuals make the assumption that plastic surgery in Cleveland is just for women, however, men can have many of the same body concerns that women have, making them excellent candidates for certain procedures! The procedures are often performed in the same way, taking special consideration of body type, skin thickness, and hair growth.
Body Contouring for Men
With age, men can experience stubborn fat in the abdomen, flanks, and under the chin. The ideal male figure is considered to be athletic-looking, with a flat chest and abdominal area. Men might choose liposuction to remove stubborn fat and create a slimmer, more masculine figure. Along with stubborn fat, age or a dramatic weight loss can result in lax skin that hangs off areas of the body. Men might choose to have a tummy tuck to remove loose tissue and contour the midsection for a toned appearance.
Facial Rejuvenation for Men
Like women, men eventually suffer from the effects of aging with facial sagging, folds, and wrinkles. These can be improved with a face or neck lift to smooth out folds and redefine the chin for a more masculine profile. Men should take into consideration that their scarring may be more visible than a facelift on a woman. Women can more easily hide their scars with hair styled towards the face and with makeup. It requires a bit more artistry on your surgeon’s part to ensure visible scars are minimized. Your surgeon will also pay close attention to hair-bearing skin, so your facial hair still grows in its natural place. Thankfully, a facelift in Cleveland has advanced to only require small endoscopic incisions in most cases.
Don’t forget, there are cosmetic injectables available, such as Botox or fillers for a more subtle transformation.
Breast Reduction for Men
Gynecomastia, or enlarged breast tissue, can be due to age, weight gain, or genetic factors. The condition can affect men at any age and can cause a great deal of emotional stress for some. A male breast reduction uses liposuction or tissue excision techniques to affectively remove this enlarged tissue and excess fat, helping men achieve a flattened chest and more masculine figure.
