Male cosmetic plastic surgery
The modern man is more aware of how he looks than ever before, and is keener than ever to have a few things done for better aesthetics.
Sometimes, even with a healthy diet and regular workouts at the gym, some body contouring is needed to achieve a person’s goals. There’s no shame or embarrassment in seeking professional help to get your body’s details just right. Having plastic surgery done for men is becoming less of a taboo in society.
Dr André Safvat is a highly skilled and qualified specialist plastic surgeon, and he sees trends in which more and more men get a little nip and tuck. We’ve listed a few of the popular male treatments available.
1. Male breast reduction
Gynaecomastia is excess breast tissue in males, a common condition becoming more prevalent among men. The man-boob is a frustration for many fit, gym-going males: male breast reduction surgery may provide the answer.
Male breast reduction surgery corrects enlarged breasts by removing excess breast tissue. It may also be combined with liposuction to remove excess chest fat, and has lasting results.
2. Body contouring after weight loss
Bariatric surgery is becoming very popular in Australia, and is quite successful in losing weight. However, the excess skin after massive weight loss unfortunately does not go away. This can cause chafing, rashes, and difficulty walking in some cases, as well as being displeasing after working so hard to lose weight.
Body contouring after weight loss removes the excess skin and fat, restoring normal body function and giving the patient the self-confidence they deserve. It can make up the final step in both male and female weight loss journeys.
3. Eye lift (blepharoplasty)
Droopy eyes happen naturally with age, but is more than just a skin condition. Especially when it affects the upper eyelid, it can obstruct and interfere with vision. Eye lift surgery may be needed to improve your vision as well as your appearance. It can give the face a revitalised, youthful look. Men in particular often require more reduction in the upper eyelid to achieve this.
4. Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
Abdominoplasty is the reshaping of the abdomen by removing excess fat and skin. Also known as a tummy tuck, the procedure is ideal for men (or women) who are close to their ideal body weight and shape, but still have problematic fatty areas they would like to correct.
Abdominoplasty reshapes the abdomen by removing excess fat, loose skin, and stretch marks. The belly button can also be reshaped and repositioned in a more desirable location. The rectus muscle (also known as the six packs) is often stretched apart and it repaired during this procedure. This improves the core muscle function. Dr Andre Safvat often combines abdominoplasty with liposuction to deliver impressive results.
5. Neck lift
A neck lift can remove excess skin, tighten loose skin, and reduce the appearance of a double chin. Since these things often develop with age, a neck lift may help you feel younger again.
Dr Safvat performs a direct excision neck lift: a technique where the skin of the neck is cut in a Z form. This allows for better healing, is a more straightforward procedure than a full neck lift and is a very good option for men.
6. Ear surgery (otoplasty)
The correction of prominent ears is normally done in childhood after the ears have grown to their full size, but otoplasty (ear surgery) can be done at any age. The ear cartilage is moulded to the desired shape, and any incisions are usually concealed behind the ear
Other cosmetic options for men
There are alternatives to male cosmetic plastic surgery for the modern man, and they can still present amazing results. These include dermal fillers, antiwrinkle injections, lip fillers, skin care creams, and LED light therapy. Dr Andre Safvat can provide these in his Miranda clinic.
