Male Plastic Surgery

Today, cosmetic surgery isn’t just for actors and models. Men of all ages and from all walks of life want a more balanced appearance, including a rejuvenated face, a more defined facial profile, and less fat around the neck, as well as a more-proportionately contoured physique. Fortunately, there is no longer a stigma attached to surgically improving one’s appearance, and Dr. Robert Singer offers a range of male plastic surgery options at his La Jolla practice in San Diego.

The techniques used in performing cosmetic procedures such as eyelid surgery, nose surgery, facelift, facial implants, liposuction, and body sculpting surgery are essentially the same for both men and women. However, there are subtly different approaches required to maintain or achieve a natural masculine appearance.

Facial Plastic Surgery for Men

Special considerations must be taken for men who are undergoing facial surgery. Men’s facial features and characteristics are quite different from those of women and require specialized techniques to maintain the masculine appearance of certain features, such as the eyes, nose, chin, and forehead. For his male patients undergoing facial plastic surgery, Dr. Singer takes all of these issues into consideration when creating a personalized treatment plan.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) enhances the appearance of your eyes by eliminating excess skin and/or fat to smooth the eyelids. Eyelid lift can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both lids, depending on your specific needs.

The facelift (rhytidectomy) surgically lifts and tightens facial and/or neck skin and underlying muscle. For his male patients, this plastic surgery procedure is one of the most popular and satisfying options. If you are ready to “turn back the clock,” you can appear more rested, healthier, and vigorous through facelift surgery.

Brow Lift

Laughing, smiling, and squinting are all everyday facial movements that gradually cause your forehead to develop unwanted furrows, wrinkles, and lines. This, coupled with the inevitable effects of aging, can create forehead lines that lead to a tired, worn look that robs you of your confidence in social and business situations. A brow / forehead lift can remove unwanted wrinkles and lift the brow to rejuvenate your face.

Nose Surgery

Nose surgery (rhinoplasty) is one of the most popular male plastic surgery procedures available. Nose reshaping alters the external appearance and sometimes the internal function of your nose, to can create a more defined facial profile and improve breathing.

Cheek and Chin Shaping Surgery for Men

Cheek and chin shaping procedures use special facial implants to improve and enhance the contours of this facial area. These procedures can bring balance to your face by correcting flat cheeks or receded chins to enhancing your overall appearance.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the one of the best ways to diminish wrinkles and unwanted expression lines on your face. Common treatment areas for men include the forehead, between the eyebrows, and the lines on the sides of the eyes. One of the benefits of BOTOX® injections is that there is no recovery time.  Dr. Singer performs all injections personally, so you can rest assured that you are in the most professional hands.

Facial fillers, such as Restylane®,  are excellent alternatives to male plastic surgery to enhance your facial features and help fill in any creases or lines on your face for a temporary enhancement. The most common area for men is the nasal-labial folds (lines running down the cheek). Restylane® is safe and is made of a naturally occurring substance that binds water to cells. Other non-surgical options include JUVEDERM®,Perlane® , Juvederm Voluma™ and microfat grafts.

Liposuction is very popular among men who wish to remove excess fat around the waist or flanks, under the chin, or to remove male breast tissue that results from a condition known as gynecomastia. Many of these areas are resistant or impervious to diet and exercise. Men’s skin tends to retain elasticity longer than a woman’s does, increasing the chances that liposuction alone will be able to treat these specific areas without the need for further procedures.

Male Breast Reduction for Gynecomastia

Men who feel self-conscious about their abnormally large breasts (gynecomastia) often are reluctant to appear in bathing suits or participate in sporting activities without wearing loose fitting shirts to hide their chests.

Gynecomastia is derived from the Greek words to describe a condition that makes men’s breasts appear enlarged or “woman-like.” It may affect both breasts, or occasionally, just one. There are a variety of reasons for male breast over-development, but in the vast majority of cases there is no known cause.
