Male Cosmetic Surgery Options
The desire for aesthetic self-improvement is not a characteristic that is reserved solely for women. As gender rules have become less rigid over time, the number of men seeking out cosmetic surgery has dramatically increased. In 2012, there were more than 204,000 cosmetic surgeries, and more than 1,049,000 minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed on men. In modern society, men of all ages and walks of life are requesting cosmetic surgery to correct or enhance their aesthetic features. The goals of male cosmetic surgery vary from patient to patient, and include the desire for: a rejuvenated facial appearance, a more symmetrical or balanced nose, a leaner waistline, and male breast reduction.
When working with male clientele, plastic surgeons must take into account a number of unique factors, including: skin thickness, body type and beard growth. Fortunately, Dr. A. Dean Jabs, M.D., Dr. Franklin D. Richards, M.D. and Dr. Keshav Magge, M.D., are highly experienced working with male patients, and will conduct a thorough medical evaluation in order to determine the optimal approach to address your individual aesthetic goals. Cosmetic Surgery Associates has offices in McLean, VA, and Bethesda, MD, and offers a wide variety of cosmetic surgery procedures for men, including, but not limited to:
More than 20,000 male breast reduction surgeries were formed in 2012, up 5% from 2011. Male breast reduction surgery is performed to correct the symptoms of gynecomastia, the swelling of the breast tissue in boys or men, caused by an imbalance of testosterone and estrogen. Natural hormonal shifts, medical conditions, malnutrition, and various medications are among the causes of gynecomastia.
Liposuction is also an extremely popular procedure for men, with over 23,000 male liposuction surgeries performed last year. Men frequently elect to undergo liposuction to help shape and contour their bodies, and acquire a leaner, more athletic-looking physique. The most population regions for male liposuction include: love handles (flanks), abdomen, and lower back.
