While it may come as a surprise, men looking for plastic surgery help reshape and refine their physiques. Whether looking to eliminate love handles or remove excess skin resulting from weight loss surgery, plastic surgery can help men regain their confidence.
The most common cosmetic surgery for men is liposuction. In fact, it is the most popular plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States. Liposuction removes unwanted fat deposits in trouble spots that are resistant to diet and exercise. In men, the abdomen, love handles, chest, and neck are the most common areas treated by liposuction.
An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is frequently performed on male patients, particularly if they have lost a significant amount of weight. An abdominoplasty removes excess fat and skin, leaving the stomach flat.
If there is excess skin around your face and neck, you can also get a face or neck lift which will help you feel younger and fresher! In many cases, facelifts and neck lifts can be done in the office under a combination of local anesthesia and oral sedation.
Recovery times from all these procedures vary, but most require one to two weeks off work, with the return to full activities in about six weeks. Your doctor will thoroughly explain your surgery and recovery process at your consultation.
