Male Aesthetic Procedures

An often-overlooked aspect of aesthetic procedures is the need for treatments tailored to the male patient. In the past decade, there has been an increased demand as well as acceptance for aesthetic plastic surgery for the male patient to help improve appearance and restore youth. A pleasing appearance is as important for men as it is for women, and while there are plastic surgical procedures and techniques that are common between genders, there is a need to understand the differences in male and female physical characteristics to help male patients achieve the ideal results for themselves.

Our doctors perform both minimally invasive as well as surgical procedures to help men look and feel their best. Some of the common aesthetic procedures sought after by men are listed below.

Gynecomastia Surgery (Male Breast Reduction)

Gynecomastia Procedures

Gynecomastia is a condition of enlarged breasts in men. This can occur at any age, and while sometimes can be associated with underlying medical issues, there is often no identifiable cause. Gynecomastia can hinder physical and social activities and does not go away with exercise. It is important to seek medical advice not just to uncover any serious underlying problems that could be causing the gynecomastia, but to also understand the appropriate treatments for the condition.

Plastic surgeons, with their keen understanding of pathology and physical anatomy, are best placed to manage these conditions. At Polaris Plastic Surgery, our surgeons utilize techniques such as VASERTM liposuction to maximize outcomes whilst minimizing morbidity.

Minimally Invasive Procedures, Hair And Skin Care

Quite often, males require just minor improvements or touch-ups to improve their features and reduce signs of ageing and skin pigmentation. These can be achieved through minimally invasive treatments such as lasers, HIFU, botulinum toxin and fillers. Many of these procedures involve little downtime and can be performed conveniently in the clinic with minimal discomfort.

Many males suffer from male-pattern baldness and receding hairlines. Using a combination of advanced medical therapy as well as hair transplant techniques, your surgeon can design the appropriate treatment plan to carefully restore hairlines and reduce bald or thinning patches of hair.

Skin care is important not just in reducing the signs of ageing but also protecting the skin from harmful environmental pollutants and UV rays. This helps to reduce the risk of developing skin pigmentation or even more serious conditions like skin cancer.

Facial Procedures

There are many aesthetic surgical procedures of the face which can be performed for both males and females. Some are performed to improve appearance, whilst others are performed to restore youth. In many instances, facial surgery can help with both.

It is important to understand the clear differences between masculine and feminine features to help patients achieve optimal results. In males, a stronger, more angular appearance is commonly desirable. However, any procedure performed should be individualized to harmonize with the inherent features of the face to give a holistic, pleasing look.
Male Facial Procedures
In males, common aesthetic procedures of the upper face include brow rejuvenation (browpexy) and upper eyelid surgery, such as droopy eyelid (aka ptosis) correction. Improving the appearance of the nose through a rhinoplasty is also commonly requested, which helps to give a stronger facial outline. In the cheek and lower face, scarless eyebag removal, midface lifts, facelifts or facial fat grafting can be performed to rejuvenate and refresh overall appearance. These surgical procedures are often long-lasting with minimal or well-hidden scars.

Body Procedures

Male Body Procedures

Modern society places a high value on looking fit. Due to variations in diet and exercise, or plain inherent body type, the ‘ideal’ male physical appearance can be hard to achieve. Body contouring procedures such as liposuction can assist with this by removing excess fat deposits and tightening loose skin in areas such as the neck, chest, arms, abdomen, back, buttocks, thighs, and calves. Utilizing ultrasound and power-assisted liposuction systems, our surgeons are also able to achieve the high-definition outlines of the male physique that is so sought after.
If you are male and have any of the above concerns, do schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons who can help with answering any questions you have and provide you with the appropriate options to help you look and feel your best.
