Best Candidates for Male Cosmetic Procedures
The best candidates for male cosmetic procedures are those men who feel dissatisfied with certain aspects of their appearance, yet have realistic expectations about their results. Men may also consider male cosmetic procedures for health concerns that affect their quality of life, such as getting penile correction to repair painful penis curvature.
What to Expect
At Elysian Plastic Surgery, we offer multiple options for male cosmetic procedures:
BOTOX®, Evolus® and Injectable Fillers
Looking your best doesn’t have to mean getting plastic surgery. BOTOX and Evolus, along with injectable fillers, work to temporarily smooth away wrinkles so you look refreshed without needing recovery time. BOTOX is typically used to treat frown lines, while injectable fillers restore lost volume to minimize deeper wrinkles or fill in small facial scars.
FUPA (Fatty Upper Pubic Area) Reduction
Excess fat in the pubic area can obscure penis length. With the help of liposuction, or sometimes a combination of liposuction and skin reduction or non-surgical techniques like TruSculpt®, you can see improved contours of the pubic area as well as additional functional penile length.
Gynecomastia is the development of excess breast tissue in men, which can leave men feeling self-conscious about going shirtless at the gym or the pool. Dr. Dellinger can restore a more masculine profile with the help of liposuction to sculpt away excess fat cells.
More significant gynecomastia may include a small incision to also remove glandular breast tissue. Severe gynecomastia can require more advanced body contouring options such as excess skin removal and liposuction of the surrounding areas.
Surgical and Non-Surgical Fat Reduction
More men are taking advantage of fat reduction procedures than ever before. Patients with diet and exercise-resistant fat deposits in the abdomen and flanks, such as the “love handles” can be treated with a variety of surgical methods, including liposuction, BodyTite, or non-surgical methods such as TruSculpt®.
Your Male Cosmetic Procedure Results
Your results will vary depending on the procedure(s) that you and Dr. Dellinger choose together as part of your treatment plan. A surgical procedure like male breast reduction will mean a longer recovery than an injection-based treatment such as BOTOX. Dr. Dellinger will talk more with you about what to expect regarding each procedure’s recovery time and results during your consultation.
Male Cosmetic Procedures FAQs
Can I combine procedures?
Yes, it’s very common for men to combine procedures, either to see more comprehensive results or to address multiple concerns. In some cases, surgical procedures may need to be performed in stages to see an optimum outcome.
Will people be able to tell I’ve had cosmetic surgery?
Dr. Dellinger ensures discreet incision placement whenever possible for results that look natural, never “done.” Many non-surgical treatments today can give you great results and don’t require any incisions at all.
Which procedures are right for me?
The answer to this question is different for every man. During your consultation, Dr. Dellinger will discuss the results you hope to see and then work closely with you to design an individualized treatment plan that can best help you achieve those goals.
