Gone are the days when there was a stigma surrounding plastic surgery for men. Today, a growing number of men are joining women in enhancing their appearance so that they appear more youthful and energetic. This is understandable because men want to look and feel confident, so they want to have an edge in the workplace, in dating, and in life. Dr. Haque understands the needs of men for cosmetic procedures.
Here are a few of the most commonly requested types of plastic surgery among men:
Male Breast Reduction
Although gynecomastia or enlargement of breast tissue among men, is not frequently talked about, it is more common than many people realize, affecting around half of all men at some point in their lives. It can be the result of things like taking steroids or certain medications, like finasteride for hair loss.
Many men with gynecomastia assumed that when they lost weight that their chest area would resume its normal proportions. Unfortunately, breast enlargement among men can involve both fat and glandular tissue. Glandular tissue does not respond to weight loss.
Male breast reduction procedures help remove both excess fat and glandular tissue. Some men also require some removal of excess skin tissue, leading to a firmer, flatter, and better-contoured chest area.
The same reason why women love liposuction also makes it appealing among men. Men also deal with excess body fat that is sometimes unresponsive to dietary changes and exercise. Liposuction procedures can help remove stubborn pockets of fat from places like the abdomen, arms, buttocks, thighs, and other areas.
One of the first areas to display visible signs of aging is the area around the eyes. Since this is a central part of the face, this can really make you appear older than your actual age. Eyelid rejuvenation procedures can help men dealing with loose skin hanging over their upper eyelids, as well as swollen fat pads under the eyelids.
Eyelid rejuvenation procedures can turn back the clock on these common signs of aging around the eyes. The result is a refreshed, alert, and more youthful look that makes you look as if you’ve just returned from a relaxing vacation.
