Gone are the days when plastic surgery was exclusively a woman’s domain. Times are changing, and so are the demographics. More men than ever are turning to surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures to feel more confident and youthful—and even to gain a competitive edge in the workplace.
Whether you’re aiming for a chiseled jawline, a flatter abdomen, or a more youthful look, the best plastic surgery for men involves a spectrum of options designed to help you reach the best version of yourself.
Why Men Are Embracing Plastic Surgery
Men from all walks of life are catching on to the benefits of plastic surgery. So, what’s driving this change? It’s a combination of factors.
For one, societal norms are changing. The stigma surrounding men taking an active interest in their appearance is eroding as more and more men are embracing the cosmetic enhancements available to them.
Second, feeling comfortable in your own skin is an essential part of mental well-being. For some men, plastic surgery can open the door to renewed confidence—creating a cascade effect that positively affects social interactions, relationships, and even their career trajectories.
And then there’s the age factor. As we grow older, it’s natural to want our external appearance to reflect the vitality we still feel inside. An increasing number of men seek plastic surgery to help them navigate the aging process more proactively and with greater self-assurance.
Tailored Techniques for Men
Plastic surgery comes with a unique set of goals and concerns for men. You’re not looking to achieve the same results as women, and that’s where a skilled surgeon’s expertise is invaluable. At the Center for Plastic Surgery, customization is at the heart of our approach.
How does the customized approach extend to specific procedures? With a range of available options, our male patients can choose procedures to meet their individual needs and expectations. Let’s look at some of the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures for men to see how they can work for you.
Liposuction for men can serve multiple functions. Want to better define your abs? Liposuction can remove the stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise. Frustrated with how your pecs look? We offer liposuction for men’s chests, too, for a more chiseled and masculine appearance.
But the applications don’t stop there. From love handles to the jawline, liposuction offers targeted body contouring possibilities, allowing you to sculpt the physique you want.
Male Breast Reduction
For many men, the presence of excess breast tissue—commonly known as gynecomastia—can be a source of significant distress, often causing a ripple effect that extends to various aspects of life. Male breast reduction surgery isn’t just a cosmetic procedure—it can be a transformative experience.
A skilled surgeon will first determine the underlying cause of the breast enlargement, whether it’s excess fat, glandular tissue, or a combination of both. The procedure is adapted to your needs and can involve liposuction, excision, or both. The result? A flatter, firmer, and more contoured chest that aligns with your vision of a masculine physique.
Tummy tuck surgery for men is becoming more and more popular. The procedure is an effective way to tackle excess skin and an abdominal bulge that won’t budge with diet or exercise. Men typically opt for a tummy tuck after significant weight loss has left them with sagging skin or when the natural aging process has resulted in a less-than-taut abdomen.
While tummy tucks for women often focus on restoring figures after pregnancy to create a slim, hourglass figure, tummy tuck surgeries for men aim to achieve a more athletic contour. An experienced board-certified plastic surgeon will be able to adjust their approach accordingly.
Facial plastic surgery for men has evolved to be incredibly nuanced, focusing on elevating the skin, repositioning underlying muscle, and reducing excess tissue in a way that retains masculine features. Today’s techniques are about restoring volume and contour to reflect a natural, youthful appearance while still preserving the character and ruggedness that many men wish to maintain.
Men often face challenges like a sagging jawline, deep wrinkles around the mouth and eyes, and a lack of definition in the cheeks. A customized facelift for men will address these areas strategically, with the understanding that even small adjustments can lead to significant changes in appearance.
Facelifts can be combined with other procedures, such as a neck lift, rhinoplasty, and chin augmentation, to create a harmonious overall rejuvenation. By selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon, you ensure that the outcome will reflect your aesthetic goals. You don’t want to look like you’ve had work done—you want to look like a more refreshed, youthful version of yourself.
