Plastic Surgery Options for Men
As a board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Franckle knows that men should not be forgotten when discussing plastic surgery. Many men have important and real concerns about physical characteristics. Some of these issues may be resolved with surgical procedures. As a practitioner of male plastic surgery, Dr. Franckle is committed to assisting men with these concerns when they arise.
As we get older, our metabolism slows and the pounds begin to creep on. It is not just women who are concerned with their appearance; men begin to worry about their physique as well. When the body is not responding to diet and exercise, a body contouring procedure with liposuction might be a solution. It is important to remember that liposuction is not a weight-loss operation. Liposuction works best when used on men at their ideal body weight who need a little extra assistance contouring certain areas or for stubborn pockets of fat that remain even after weight loss.
While it is not well known, gynecomastia (excess pockets of fat in the breasts) is a condition we see frequently for male patients. There are several reasons why gynecomastia can occur: a hormonal imbalance, side effects of certain medications, or other health issues. A popular type of male plastic surgery to resolve this involves a breast reduction with the use of tissue excision, liposuction or both to reduce excess fat in the chest. Men of all ages who are experiencing gynecomastia and wish to craft a more toned and masculine chest might consider gynecomastia.
When frown lines, laugh lines, or crow’s feet threaten to take over one’s face, Botox can be a temporary solution to ease the appearance of these wrinkles. This cosmetic treatment can smooth lines n the forehead, in between the eyebrows, and around the corners of the eyes. Just a few injections can temporarily relax the underlying muscles, allowing the surface skin to smooth and soften. Our male Botox patients see results almost immediately lasting up to 3 months.
Men struggling with a certain aspect their physical appearance should know that there are many viable options for male plastic surgery to help them feel more confident with their bodies. Consultations are our office are completely private, just with Dr. Franckle, and are used to discuss the patient’s concerns and explore solutions.
