Popular Male Plastic Surgery Procedures
By Patricia Berbari on April 22, 2013
Today’s confident, self-assured male is turning more and more often to plastic surgery to achieve more youthful, chiseled, masculine features. Through procedures specially designed to enhance the masculine physique, Gatineau plastic surgery patients are able to achieve natural, yet dramatic results.
Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia, a condition in which men develop enlarged breast tissue, can affect men of all age groups. The over-development of breast tissue is a problem for many men and can be incredibly embarrassing. It can be caused by genetics, weight gain, certain diseases, certain medications, and hormonal imbalances, among other factors. For many of our Gatineau male breast reduction patients, the cause of the condition cannot precisely be identified.
Many patients affected by gynecomastia express feelings of depression and anxiety that directly result from having the condition. Sadly, this common condition can significantly affect the self-esteem and quality of life of a patient. The over-development of breast tissue can cause a male to feel trapped within his own body. Normal day-to-day activities that most men are able to take for granted, such as being able to swim without a shirt on, remove one’s shirt when participating in physical sports, or even being able to be intimate with a significant other without feeling embarrassed or ashamed are impossible for many men affected by gynecomastia. To help patients feel more comfortable in their bodies and no longer fear removing their shirts, we offer male breast reduction surgery.
Gone are the days that a male has to feel self-conscious about wanting to appear more youthful and refreshed. Not all men agree with the old saying “men get better with age,” at least when it concerns the appearance of aging on the face. Men can be just as bothered by the appearance of facial aging as women. The appearance of wrinkles, creases, sagging skin, and other signs of aging are not something that a man should have to accept simply because he was born male instead of female. Dr. Patricia Berbari offers a wide range of surgical and non-surgical treatment options to restore a younger, more refreshed, and revitalized facial appearance to both her female and male patients.
Utilizing one or more cosmetic procedures such as facelift surgery, eyelid surgery, dermal fillers, brow lift, and microdermabrasion, Gatineau male plastic surgery patients can achieve a more youthful, well-rested, natural-looking appearance.
Rhinoplasty, or nose-reshaping surgery, is among the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed. Many men who are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or other elements of their noses choose to undergo rhinoplasty. A male may undergo rhinoplasty to achieve a larger or smaller nose, to remove bumps from the nose, to alter the angle between the nose and the upper lip, and to change the shape of the tip or bridge of the nose.
Men desiring to enhance their masculine form may benefit from body contouring. Male-specific body contouring techniques may be used to create a more muscular appearance in the calves, abdomen, and other areas. A popular and effective body contouring procedure that is often combined with other body contouring procedures is liposuction. Liposuction may be used to address stubborn fat deposits in the abdomen, the flanks, the pectoral region, and the back, among other areas. Men who have lost a substantial amount of weight and are now suffering from sagging, droopy skin may benefit from body lift surgery.
