When it comes to plastic surgery, many people commonly believe that women make up the majority of patients. While women do represent a substantial amount of cosmetic surgery patients, more and more men are pursuing surgery. Many men undergo facial cosmetic procedures to address wrinkles, sagging facial skin, and folds to regain a more youthful look. Body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tuck are also popular as men are also concerned about unwanted fat. Additionally, men can choose breast reduction surgery to address large male breasts. At Pittman Plastic Surgery, Drs. Ed Pittman perform facial, body, and breast procedures for male plastic surgery.
In today’s evolving job market, men have chosen procedures like blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) or facelift surgery to remain competitive with younger professionals. Patients with drooping eyelids or heavy under-eye bags can benefit from blepharoplasty. Rhinoplasty is also another popular procedure among men who desire a more defined and improved facial balance. For sagging facial skin or areas with excess fat or lost volume, facelift surgery smooths wrinkles and restores an overall rejuvenated look.
Body contouring procedures like liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are commonly performed in mommy makeover surgery. However, both men and women can benefit from liposuction on common problem areas like the thighs, back, abdomen, and hips. Tummy tuck surgery removes unwanted fat and skin on the abdomen and flanks, as well as repairs weakened abdominal muscles. For patients who have small areas of stubborn fat and are not ready for surgery or downtime, CoolSculpting® fat reduction uses a non-surgical cooling process to freeze fat cells for the body to naturally eliminate.
As breast procedures are generally tailored for female patients, men can choose breast reduction surgery to address a medical condition called gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts. Dr. Pittman perform male breast reduction by removing fat and glandular tissue for a firm, masculine appearance.
