Cosmetic Surgery for Men
In Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona, there are many reasons cosmetic surgery has been increasing in popularity for men. Many of my male patients have expressed a desire to rejuvenate their facial features so they can remain competitive in the workplace. Other patients were frustrated with diet- and exercise-resistant fat, and wanted body contouring to improve their physique and maximize the results of their workouts. Finally, many men are unhappy with the shape of their noses, the prominence of their ears, or the "weakness" of their chins and wish to pursue facial sculpting to increase the attractiveness of their facial features.
Medical director Dr. Robert Cohen and his associates, Dr. Steven Sigalove and Dr. Josh Olson, are certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. These talented surgeons are leaders in the field of plastic surgery and the proof is in their results.
Many men also complain of excess fat on their chest, giving them a feminized appearance. This problem is called "gynecomastia," and can be a significant source of embarrassment. I am able to correct this problem with power-assisted liposuction and/or direct excision of the excess breast tissue.
Body contouring plastic surgery for men is also somewhat different. As opposed to women, who tend to complain most about the hips and thighs, men generally complain of the abdomen and love handles. This is because there are frequently gender related differences in fat distribution. With men, I tend to perform surgery that will enhance their muscular appearing physiques. For example, with carefully applied liposuction, I can narrow the waistline and can enhance the appearance of a "six-pack" abdomen via "abdominal liposuction."
Every facial rejuvenation and facial sculpting procedure available to women is also available to my male patients. Obviously, when I perform facial surgery on a man, my goals are quite different, as men generally do not want their faces "feminized." This means that I do not try to arch the brows or slim the nose too much. Men tend to want straighter, stronger, more angular facial features than women do, and my techniques are altered to accommodate these objectives.
The days of plastic surgery as a "women-only" pursuit are over, as more and more men realize that looking their best can boost their confidence, motivate them to exercise more, and help them feel their best.
