Procedures for Men
More and more men are discovering the positive benefits of cosmetic surgery. At Burgess Plastic Surgery, we offer a range of services for our male patients, in a comfortable office setting where you can discuss your cosmetic questions with a board certified plastic surgeon. At your consultation, Dr. Burgess will listen to your concerns and help guide you towards your best option with the most gratifying results.
Male Body Contouring
The most requested surgical procedures for our male patients are abdominal surgery and facial procedures. Sometimes even with a consistent workout regimen, men can still hold excess fatty tissue in the love handle area. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that can improve fatty areas for around a 20-30 % improvement. VASER® Liposuction can also be a great option for this area, as the fat is removed permanently, allowing for your clothes to fit better. For those who have had massive weight loss, sometimes a tummy tuck or abdominoplasty may be considered. This is a major surgical procedure, where the abdomen is liposuctioned, the abdominal muscles are tightened and excess skin is permanently removed.
Facial Plastic Surgery for Men
Facial procedures are normally done to help refresh gentlemen and give them a more youthful, natural looking appearance. Some men choose to have eyelid surgery, to remove excess sagging skin from their eyelids that makes them appear tired. This can have a nice, natural result that is sometimes followed with Botox®, an injectable medication that works to soften frown lines between the brows. Your body may be in great shape but every time you lose weight it also makes your face looker thinner, gaunt, and older. Sculptra® Aesthetic can add facial fullness after several treatments. Wrinkles can be treated with Juvederm® and other facial fillers. Others still are concerned with fatty tissue under the chin area. Ultherapy® can offer a smooth result that can help define the jaw line and face. Sometimes a facelift may be considered to rejuvenate the facial features by repositioning the tissue and removing excess skin. The goal of any facial surgery is to still leave you looking like yourself, just a refreshed and rejuvenated you!
Male Breast Reduction
In addition to the above procedures, Dr. Burgess also surgically treats gynecomastia, or excess breast and fatty tissue in men. Gynecomastia can occur for a variety of medical reasons, but can make many men feel very self-conscious. It can inhibit their lifestyle and activity choices. Patients who undergo gynecomastia breast reduction surgery are satisfied with a flatter and more sculpted chest and feel much more comfortable in their clothing, as well as bathing suits.
