Plastic Surgery: Not Just for Women

In the past few years there has been a huge boom in men’s cosmetic surgery. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, “the number of cosmetic procedures for men increased by more than 106% between 1997 and 2012”.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common plastic surgery procedures for men. One of the most common procedures is gynecomastia. The over-development of the male breast, also known as gynecomastia, can cause significant concerns and decreased self-confidence. Depending on the degree of the deformity, the male breast can have enlarged nipples or large excess hanging breast tissue similar to a female breast. Gynecomastia surgery removes this extra breast tissue.

The procedure to correct gynecomastia continues to grow in popularity with men due to its efficient and effective results. Dr. John McFate is experienced in the latest and various techniques to address each particular degree of gynecomastia.

Another common procedure for men is blepharoplasty(eyelid rejuvenation). This is a procedure that restores the upper eyelids to their younger appearance. The lower eyelids can also be rejuvenated by removing excess fat and tightening the skin.

Other common procedures include neck lifts, rhinoplasty(nose surgery) and liposuction. If you or anyone you know is thinking about getting any of these procedures please contact us to schedule a free consultation!
