Popular Male Plastic Surgery Procedures
By on October 01, 2012
Plastic surgery is not a practice that caters only to women. In fact, many of our patients are males. Just as women have their physical insecurities, men also have areas of the body they would like to enhance or improve. Dr. Constance M. Barone has a large male patient base at her San Antonio plastic surgery practice because she offers the most popular plastic surgery procedures for men. Some of the procedures that are most often requested by our male patients are facelift, rhinoplasty, liposuction, and male breast reduction.
A facelift is a popular procedure because it can address the obvious signs of aging on the face. With a facelift, loose skin on the cheeks and jowls can be corrected and wrinkles can be treated. Dr. Barone will make a discreet incision that allows her to pull the skin taut and excise any extra skin. After surgery, our male patients enjoy a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
One of the popular procedures for our male patients in San Antonio, rhinoplasty surgery can correct the size of the nose, reshape the bridge, tip, or nostrils, as well as correct structural defects that may cause breathing problems. The incision for rhinoplasty will either be made along the inside of the nostrils or vertically on the tissue that connects the nostrils. In either case, there should be little to no visible scarring. During rhinoplasty surgery, alterations will be made to give you your ideal nose. While the nose may seem like a small part of your face, rhinoplasty surgery can make a significant impact on your appearance. Having a nose that fits the size and shape of your face produces a more balanced and attractive appearance.
Liposuction allows surgeons to remove stubborn pockets of fat that cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise. Depending on the size of the treatment area, liposuction may require multiple incisions to give Dr. Barone access to underlying fatty tissue. These incisions will be very small to limit the appearance of post-operative scarring. The incisions allow for the insertion of a cannula, which is a thin, tubelike suctioning device that will pull excess fat out of the body. Liposuction can be used on the arms, legs, buttocks, back, flanks (or love handles) to leave the body more trim and toned.
Male Breast Reduction
Men who suffer from a condition known as gynecomastia have unusually large breasts for a male. This condition can have a vastly negative impact on a patient's self esteem. In many cases, we can correct this problem with liposuction. Some of our male patients may require the removal of extra skin, in addition to fat; in these situations, larger incisions are made to remove excess skin and re-drape the skin on the chest to give it a smoother, more sculpted appearance.
