Common Cosmetic Procedures for Men

September 1, 2022

Plastic surgery is a daunting word that strikes a wide range of emotions. At Advanced Aesthetics, we work to ensure all our patients are comfortable and find the right procedure for them. Did you know that plastic surgery isn’t just for women? The amount of men who are taking action about their appearance is growing and can no longer be ignored. They want to look and feel good about their bodies as they get older. Some see the benefits and happiness their wives have enjoyed from plastic surgery and figure, why not me? Some feel like they need to keep up in the workplace and that their appearance is crucial to doing so, while others are business owners trying to thrive in an age of social media in which brand and image are important.

Whatever the reason, demand for cosmetic surgery from men has skyrocketed. At Advanced Aesthetics, we are equipped to meet that demand and welcome men to call our office for a free cosmetic consultation. Here are some of the most commonly requested cosmetic procedures for men that we provide:

Chin augmentation

Some men have a weak or saggy jaw that, as it ages, can appear less masculine. Our team of plastic surgeons can insert an implant and sculpt a stronger jaw. Chin augmentation is the procedure that Jim Kirpatrick, an Advanced Aesthetics patient, sought out because of excess skin hanging under his chin. But Kirkpatrick got even more than what he expected when he opted for an additional procedure to make his chin have a firmer, more rounded structure.

“And that was kind of a bonus,” Kirkpatrick said. “I hadn't really thought of that. He said, ‘Well, while you're here. Why don't we give you a little more structure?’ I hadn't even expected that and was really pleased about that.”

Gynecomastia surgery

Some men feel self conscious about taking their shirt off. At Advanced Aesthetics, we understand and can help. Gynecomastia surgery is a procedure that is specific to men and reduces male breast size. Gynecomastia is a condition that causes male breasts to be overdeveloped or enlarged as a result of hormonal changes, obesity, or the use of certain drugs. It can also be hereditary. Men who suffer from gynecomastia sometimes feel ashamed about their appearance and less masculine.

Advanced Aesthetics can help men gain confidence again with gynecomastia surgery. The procedure is relatively straightforward, recovery time is quick and scar visibility is minimal. At Advanced Aesthetics, we do it two ways. One way it can be done is through liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue and form a new chest contour that appears natural to your body. The other way it can be performed is through direct excision, which removes excess skin and repositions the nipple. If you’re wondering if gynecomastia surgery is right for you, consult with our team of surgeons today. 

Neck lift

Some men (and women) experience what is commonly referred to as “turkey neck” in which skin around the neck starts to droop and lose elasticity. Turkey neck is primarily caused by a combination of age and sun exposure. For men, turkey neck can cause discomfort when wearing a tightly buttoned dress shirt with a necktie. 

A neck lift, known medically as a platysmaplasty, removes excess skin while smoothing out the remaining skin and restoring the firmness and slimness of the neckline. This procedure often takes several hours. If any anxiety is felt about the procedure, our caring staff understands and can offer the patient deep-sleep anesthetics or sedatives that keep the patient comfortable. At Advanced Aesthetics, we want our patients to not only gain confidence in their appearance but also have an enjoyable experience in the process. 

Rhinoplasty

Taking the time to be intentional and truly listen to patient concerns is very important to us. Rhinoplasty, or a nose job, is another common procedure chosen by male patients who feel like their noses are too big, awkward or out of place. Your surgeon may recommend a chin augmentation along with a rhinoplasty to keep your facial appearance consistent and in sync. Rhinoplasty has a very short recovery period, and patients can often return to normal activity within a week.
