Male Plastic Surgery

BreastMale plastic surgery procedures are increasingly sought-after. Looking youthful, attractive, and masculine contributes to male self-confidence. Male plastic surgery procedures include everything from gynecomastia to liposuction and tummy tuck surgery to facial injectables. While there are many cosmetic procedures that men can undergo, three of the most sought-after procedures include the facelift, eyelid surgery, and gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction). These three procedures alone account for nearly 70,000 of the male plastic surgery procedures undergone in 2014.

Candidates

The best candidates for any of these male plastic surgery procedures:

  • • Are generally healthy
  • • Have realistic expectations
  • • Are motivated by personal reasons
  • • Experience one or more of the correctable issues described below

Consultation

During your personalized consultation, Dr. D’Amore will meet with you to discuss your desires and gain a thorough understanding of your goals to determine which procedure(s) will be best for you. He will also review your medical history as well as any medications you are currently taking. Finally, he will conduct a physical examination to create a customized treatment plan for you.

Procedures

Here is what you may expect for each of these procedures:

Facelift

Facelift surgery tightens the facial skin, re-adjusts the underlying facial tissues, and removes excess facial and neck skin to achieve better contours and a more youthful appearance. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis with the patient under light general anesthesia. Dr. D’Amore makes incisions along the hairline and around the ears to remove excess skin and fat. He also repositions the underlying tissues and then drapes the skin so that it rests more pleasantly on the face. Depending on the patient’s needs, he may also remove excess fat and skin from underneath the chin and around the neck.

A facelift can correct:

  • • Lines and wrinkles in the mid and lower face
  • • Creases along the nasolabial folds
  • • Sagging jowls
  • • Loose skin on the face or neck
  • • Neck bands
  • • Loose skin underneath the chin or jawline

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery eliminates wrinkles, eye bags, and sagging skin around the eyes to restore a more youthful appearance. It may be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both to achieve the desired results. The procedure is conducted on an outpatient basis with the patient under light general anesthesia. With upper eyelid surgery, Dr. D’Amore makes a minor incision along the natural eyelid crease, removes excess skin and fat, and tightens the muscles if necessary to correct drooping or sagging. With lower eyelid surgery, he makes a minor incision under the lash line, removes excess skin and fat to correct puffiness, and tightens the eyelid if necessary. In some cases, lower eyelid surgery can be performed from inside the eyelids, leaving no visible scars.

Eyelid surgery can correct:

  • • Sagging eyelid skin
  • • Excess eyelid skin
  • • Excess fat deposits around the eyes that cause puffiness
  • • Bags under the eyes
  • • Droopy eyelids

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia is the condition of enlarged male breasts, and it can be caused by genetics, hormonal changes, or weight gain. This common condition is corrected with surgery in which fatty tissue and glandular tissue are removed from the chest to improve pectoral contour. The procedure is conducted on an outpatient basis with the patient under general anesthesia. Dr. D’Amore utilizes liposuction and surgical techniques to excise and remove excess tissue as necessary. The procedure is completely customized to meet the man’s needs.

Gynecomastia surgery can correct:

  • • Enlarged male breasts caused by excess fat
  • • Enlarged male breasts caused by excess glandular tissue
  • • An unattractive pectoral contour
  • • Asymmetry in the appearance of the chest caused by excess fat or glandular tissue

Results

After male plastic surgery, patient satisfaction is quite high. Most patients experience a renewal of their self-confidence in conjunction with a more masculine, youthful, and attractive appearance. Long-lasting results are best maintained with weight maintenance and proper skin care.
