Cosmetic Procedures for Men
Cosmetic surgery for men is growing fast. There are several procedures that are performed regularly on men. Two of the most common cosmetic procedures for men are:
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Many boys develop an abnormal enlargement of breast tissue during puberty, and men can also encounter this as they approach middle age. This condition sometimes rectifies itself with boys. However, whether with boys or men, if the condition is causing embarrassment or discomfort, surgery may be a good solution.
Each patient’s condition is unique. Depending on the patient’s condition, the technique used might include liposuction, ultrasound assisted liposuction, skin tightening, or a combination of these. Patients wear a compression vest for a period of time after surgery but normal activities can usually resume in a few days.
For men without a lot of chest definition, pectoral implants are a good option. The semi-solid silicone implants are inserted through an incision in the armpit under general anesthesia. Generally you can return to work in about five days but should refrain from exercise and lifting for about three weeks.
