At Dayton Plastic Surgery, Dr. Matthew Fox provides a number of procedures for men in Dayton. In the past, there was a stigma surrounding male plastic surgery, along with a fair amount of erasure, but those days are long gone. Now, men feel much more comfortable coming in for a variety of cosmetic surgeries to achieve their aesthetic goals.
Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, sculpts and contours the male abdomen by removing excess fat and skin. The remaining skin is tightened, as are the loose muscles in the abdominal wall. Stretch marks can also be removed through this procedure.
The procedure targets the middle and lower parts of the abdomen. It is an ideal way to get rid of a spare tire or love handles. It is especially useful for patients who suffer from sagging excess skin after dramatic weight loss.
Cervicoplasty, also called the neck lift, is a surgical procedure that reduces loose skin near the neck area. Neck lifts can also reduce excess stubborn neck fat and tighten the skin and platysmal muscles. This leads to a more youthful and in-shape contoured appearance for the neck.
Rapid weight loss, aging, and other factors often lead to the formation of folds of skin in the chin and neck area. It can address a double chin and a turkey-wattle neck. The procedure is very useful for patients who develop harsh platysmal neck bands.
A Facelift (technically called a rhytidectomy) is a surgical procedure that lifts the tissues of the face and removes sagging excess skin. This additional skin forms through aging and rapid weight loss. With this procedure, men can get rid of frustrating facial wrinkles, helping them look more handsome and up to 10 years younger.
Gynecomastia is a condition where the male breast tissues swell up, creating the appearance of male breasts, sometimes referred to as “man boobs.” Gynecomastia can occur at any age. It is typically caused by an imbalance in hormonal levels of testosterone and estrogen in the body. Imbalances can result from recreational drugs, puberty, conditions like kidney failure and obesity, and many other factors.
Gynecomastia surgery, typically known as male breast reduction, is a way to reduce the excess glandular breast tissue, fatty tissue, and skin that make up male breasts. This surgery sculpts and contours the male chest for a more masculine appearance. It can involve tissue excision and liposuction.
Liposuction removes stubborn excess fat from underneath the skin, reducing areas in volume. It is also known as lipoplasty. Liposuction can be done on numerous parts of the body, such as the abdomen, neck, chest, hips, upper arms, back, chin, thighs, knees, and buttocks.
In this procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is inserted into a very small incision. The excess fat is loosened from the surrounding tissues and then suctioned out of the cannula using medical suction.
Otoplasty is also called ear surgery. It is the process of reshaping the pinna, or the outer ear, to address ear malformations, deformities, or proportion issues with the rest of the face. It can correct problems related to injury or birth defects.
The procedure is a safe one and can even be done on infants that are a few weeks old. Otoplasty can treat oversized ears, undersized ears, overprojecting ears, and many more types of ear issues.
Rhinoplasty is nose plastic surgery that alters the shape and structure of the male nose. The procedure is commonly referred to as a “nose job.” It reshapes the cartilage, bone, and skin tissue of the nose.
There are various reasons for getting rhinoplasty, like addressing breathing problems, improving aesthetic appeal, or rectifying a birth defect. The recovery period ranges from a few weeks to months depending upon the degree of change.
