Why Male Plastic Surgery is Becoming the Latest Trend
By Dr. Michael L. Thornton | Jun 12, 2018
While the world of cosmetic plastic surgery typically focuses on femininity and achieving the perfect womanly figure, the presence of male cosmetic plastic surgery has continued to rise in recent years and has now become the latest trend. The ideal masculine figure has a sculpted chest, well-defined abs and a pronounced jawline, but achieving that look can be difficult or even impossible for many men without help.
With the support of Dr. Michael L. Thornton and his expert staff at Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center, men can achieve the body of their dreams. Common cosmetic plastic surgery procedures for men include male gynecomastia breast reduction, body and chest VASER® liposuction, jawline sculpting, skin removal following massive weight loss, SculpSure® non-surgical fat reduction, male neck-lift and face-lift, and male Botox® / Xeomin® as well as other skin procedures from our aesthetic medical spa.
Sculpting a More Masculine Chest
A pronounced chest is often the centerpiece of attention for the male figure, but gynecomastia, or the development of enlarged male breasts, can make achieving a tight, sculpted chest an impossibility for many men. Gynecomastia can occur due to a number of factors, including fluctuations in weight, hormonal imbalances, genetics, anabolic steroid use and a loss of testosterone due to aging. If you suffer from enlarged male breasts and no longer feel comfortable shirtless, then male breast reduction surgery may be the tool you need to recapture your self-confidence.
Enlarged male breasts can occur due to the presence of both fat and excess glandular tissue. For male patients whose enlarged breasts are comprised mostly of excess fat, chest liposuction and VASER® liposculpting can be used to directly remove the fat cells and provide an immediate tightening effect with minimal scarring. For men with excess glandular tissue, Dr. Michael Thornton, a double board certified cosmetic surgeon and Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, can remove male breast gynecomastia tissue through an imperceptible incision around the areola. However, the best approach to male breast reduction surgery is a procedure that combines both methods – liposuction and direct tissue removal.
Male breast reduction is a quick, simple surgery that results in a tighter, firmer chest with minimal scarring. The procedure is consistently popular among men of all ages and continues to grow in its popularity every year.
Create a Firmer, Tighter Jawline
In addition to a broad chest, a strong jaw and chin are commonly associated with masculinity. For some men, having a strong jaw is just not in their genetics, while other men struggle to carve out their jawlines after weight gain or the effects of aging have taken it away. Using a variety of methods tailored to the needs of each patient, Dr. Thornton can sculpt a new jawline that enhances his patients’ appearance and increases their self-confidence.
Neck and jawline liposuction is primarily used to treat submental fullness, or excess fatty tissue located beneath the chin. For men with excess skin that obscures their jawline, facelift or neck lift surgery can eliminate the hanging tissue and combat the effects of aging. More minimally invasive procedures like ThermiTight® can even contract the skin using radiofrequency (RF) energy for a slimmer jawline without the need for surgery.
If you are bothered by a lack of jaw definition in your face, then let Dr. Thornton provide you with the resources you need to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Eliminate Loose Skin and Excess Fat with Body Contouring
Just like women, men also struggle with stubborn pockets of fat and unsightly loose skin especially following successful bariatric surgery or weight loss programs. Body contouring procedures, like abdominoplasty and liposuction, can help you refine a male figure and finally get rid of fat and excess skin.
According to 2016 data provided by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, liposuction is the number one procedure among men everywhere, followed closely behind by male breast reduction surgery. If you work tirelessly in the gym to build muscle and burn off fat but have yet to see your desired results, then let liposuction help you remove that final layer of fat and reveal your underlying muscle definition.
Losing weight can be a long process, and for some men, it can reach a roadblock with the presence of loose skin. Loose skin can appear anywhere on the body where dramatic fat loss has occurred, including the abdomen, upper arms, thighs and sides. If you have dedicated your time and effort into sculpting a better, healthier body only to be met with stretched, unsightly excess skin, then consider skin removal surgery. Using common procedures like abdominoplasty and body lifts, Dr. Thornton can remove layers of excess skin and tissue to help you finalize your weight loss goals.
