Top Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men

A common misconception is that plastic surgery is only performed on women.  Although women used to make up the majority of plastic surgery patients, today there are just as many men receiving plastic surgery treatments. In fact, many procedures are designed specifically for men to improve and maintain their masculine features. Here is a list of the top plastic surgeries for men.

GynecomastiaGynecomastia in Philadelphia, PA

Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by a build-up of fatty tissue in the chest area. This can give the undesired appearance of “man boobs”. Gynecomastia surgery can help to remove this fatty tissue and restore a sculpted, masculine appearance to a man’s physique.

Liposuction

Getting older causes many areas of the body to be less responsive to diet and exercise. If this is the case, you may be able to benefit from liposuction. Liposuction can be used nearly anywhere on the body, and can help men regain a lean, contoured figure,

Chin Augmentation

A weak jaw can contribute to a softer, less masculine appearance. Chin augmentations can help create a more defined jawline and fill out the profile of the face. Most men are often surprised at how much their appearance benefits from a simple chin augmentation.

Neck Lift

As mentioned above, a strong jawline is a large part of a masculine appearance. If you have loose, hanging skin on the neck, a neck lift may be just what you need. This procedure can help tighten the neck and improve how you look and feel.

Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, helps to correct sagging skin on the eyelids and rejuvenates the look of the eyes. Most patients find that this treatment makes them look less tired, resulting in a youthful, vibrant appearance. This treatment can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.

Putting Your Best Face Forward With A Chin Implant

Today more than ever it is obvious the importance we place on prominent facial features.
A strong or a weak chin can influence judgment on the strength of one’s character, leadership
and attractiveness, according to Business Week. So what can you do when the chin you
were born with is less than indicative of the one you want to convey?

Fillers can temporarily produce similar results, but a chin implant is likely the most popular
way for men and women to surgically balance out the features of the face. In fact, reshaping
your chin via a surgical implant can not only improve your chin, but can also improve your
jawline, make your neck more prominent and correct some facial asymmetry or deformities.
And did we mention it can immeasurably improve your ability to FaceTime or take a decent
Selfie?

Getting a chin implant is a surgical procedure meant to reshape the size of your chin by
inserting an implant to enhance and rejuvenate the contours of your chin. An implant
(silicone or polyethylene) will be used to improve the chin features.

Chin implant procedures are typically done under general anesthesia. A cut will be made on
either the inside of the mouth or outside under the chin, creating a pocket in which to insert
the implant in front of the chin bone and under the muscle. Once the implant is in place, it’s
secured to the bone with sutures or screws, and then the opening is stitched up to heal.

Some of the pros are: “Hey! Check out my gorgeous chin!” a renewed sense of confidence,
and facial symmetry. The procedure is also relatively quick to perform and offers nearpermanent
results. Scarring is minimal and barely noticeable, and you should be able to
resume your usual activities after 7 – 10 days.

right for you.
