Plastic Surgery for Men

Plastic surgery is becoming more common among men. Men of all ages, races and financial standing are choosing to undergo plastic surgery as it is a viable way to improve their appearance.

Some of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for men include:

  • Rhinoplasty or the reshaping of the nose
  • Facelift for a rejuvenated, youthful appearance
  • Abdominoplasty for a firm, toned midsection
  • Male Breast Reduction
  • Pectoral Implants
  • Calf Implants

A consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will help you determine which cosmetic procedures are right for you. Each procedure carries some risk just as any surgery does. Your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon will discuss all potential risks as well as what you can do to reduce your chance of complications. For some this may include quitting smoking.

The Videos of My Plastic Surgeon USA

High school students all across America are right now standing in their rooms, the book they were assigned to read in their left hand and the movie based on the book in their right, and they are thinking… why read when I can watch??

Sometimes this approach works, sometimes not. We all have different ways of processing information. Some of us learn best by reading, others by doing, and still others by seeing or hearing. When trying to research the information you’ll need to make a decision about having a plastic surgery procedure, or even finding the right plastic surgeon to do it, it is very easy to become overwhelmed very quickly by the amount of information available on the web. There are literally billions of pages of websites dedicated to describing procedures and just as many pages for biographies and backgrounds on the plastic surgeons who perform them. No one has the time or attention span to sort through it all. One great way to speed up this process, help you understand the procedures better, and to make it all a lot more interesting, is by watching videos.

That’s right. Videos. A lot of doctors are now putting up videos or 3-d animations showing and explaining various procedures. It’s a quick, easy, educational and even entertaining way to learn about the procedure you are considering. It’s also a bonus if it’s by the plastic surgeon you are considering and you can get a feel for their work, style and personality to see if they would be someone you feel you could be comfortable with and confident in. In our video gallery we have videos uploaded by various plastic surgeons featured on our site and these videos cover a variety of topics from Body Contouring to Financing Your Procedure and even Patient Testimonials and Stories.

Treating Overdeveloped Breasts in Men

The condition known as Gynecomastia, or overdeveloped breasts in men, is actually a fairly common one. In many cases this condition will be grown out of, but for those in which that is not the case, it can be an extremely uncomfortable condition to have to deal with emotionally. Men with gynecomastia are often very self-conscious and teased by fellow peers. It can be very emotionally traumatizing. There are varying degrees of severity about men with gynecomastia ranging from slight to very severe. Some may even only develop it in one of the breasts.

The only treatment for gynecomastia is through Male Breast Reduction surgery. In this procedure an incision is generally made around the areola and excess fatty tissue and skin is removed. In some cases liposuction may also be used, depending on the case. The remaining skin will be closed creating a flatter, more masculine chest.

View before and after photos of men who’ve undergone Male Breast Reduction surgery to treat their gynecomastia.

Deciding to Undergo Breast Augmentation?

The decision to undergo a Breast Augmentation is not one that should be made lightly. It requires researching skilled, board certified plastic surgeons who have the experience, training and reputation for producing safe, effective work. They should always make you feel comfortable enough to ask any questions and you should feel confident in their ability to give you the results you want. Even before researching plastic surgeons, however, it is important to evaluate your own reasons for wanting a Breast Augmentation procedure. Make sure you aren’t doing it to please anyone but yourself. It’s also best to sleep on it a while, to make sure it’s something you actually want and not just an impulse in reaction to something else. A Breast Augmentation is a decision that will effect the rest of your life and it deserves an adequate amount of thought and research before being decided on.

Once you have evaluated your personal reasons for wanting a Breast Augmentation procedure and have come to the conclusion that you want to do it for you and you have given it adequate time and thought to move forward with the decision, it is time to schedule your consultation. Remember, a consultation is just that- an initial meeting. It’s like an interview. It doesn’t mean that you have to choose that plastic surgeon, it’s just the first step in finding out if you feel comfortable with that plastic surgeon and confident in their work. It is also for the plastic surgeon to determine if you would even be a good candidate for the procedure.

Never be afraid to ask questions! It’s your body and it’s your life. You are in charge in the consultation. Sometimes it can help to make a list of things you want to remember to ask ahead of time so that you don’t forget.

The decision to undergo Breast Augmentation is an exciting and anxious one. If you are ready to explore your options further by talking with a board certified plastic surgeon, click here to find one in your area.

Reduce the Strain, Reduce the Pain with Reduction Mammaplasty

There is a lot of focus on breast implants and oftentimes women who desire to have their breasts reduced may receive harsh, unwanted criticism about their decision. It is important to keep in mind, in any plastic surgery procedure, that the decision is all yours and it should be done for you and you alone. Having large breasts can put a lot of strain on parts of the body, most noticeably perhaps are the neck and back. It may even cause difficulty breathing. Often women may also feel that their breasts are taking away attention from them. Whatever the reasons for wanting a Reduction Mammaplasty, or breast reduction surgery, they are personal and unique to each patient.

It is important that you find a qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon with whom you feel comfortable discussing your concerns and goals with, someone you feel confident in. Beginning your search can seem like a daunting process, especially at first, but thankfully you are in the right place. Head on over to our Plastic Surgery locator to find one in your neck of the woods and start on a path to relieve the stress, both emotional and physical, caused by large breasts.
