Attention fellas: Plastic surgery isn’t just for the ladies anymore. In fact, it hasn’t been for a while but male-centric options are just now beginning to go mainstream. While male-focused procedures may not make the headlines as frequently, they are certainly available if you feel like it’s time for some sprucing up. There is a suite of procedures that can stand alone or be paired together for a dynamic transformation; these range from the superficial (chemical peels) to the more invasive like breast reduction to treat Gynecomastia (male breast enlargement).
Skin on your face, neck and hands create a first impression. While men can hide behind a 5 o’clock shadow, that doesn’t mean that the quality of your skin should be neglected. Dead skin builds up, creating a dull, rough surface and needs to be removed. Chemical peels are offered in a variety of strengths and formulas catered to your face’s needs at the time. It reverses sun damage, balances uneven skin tones, and reduces wrinkles. The variation of the chemical peel can be increased with each session.
When diet and exercise leave resistant pockets of fat, liposuction can surgically remove them from areas such as the buttocks, hips, love handles, saddlebags, thighs, calves, ankles, pecs, back, arms and neck. The unwanted fat can be injected into other areas the body, such as the pectoral muscles, sculpting your overall shape. Say hello to a six-pack!
Breast Reduction To Treat Gynecomastia
Gynecomastia is the swelling of breast tissue in men, usually caused by unbalanced hormones. Multiple reduction methods such as liposuction or cutting out excess glandular tissue or a combination of both liposuction and excision can be used to treat gynecomastia.
