With advances in cosmetic procedures, increased acceptance of cosmetic procedures, and more competitive work environments, more and more men are opting to improve their appearance through plastic surgery than ever. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew H Steele offers various cosmetic procedures at his Fort Worth office for men looking to change their appearance, enhance certain features, or turn back the clock. Although men’s cosmetic goals may differ from women’s, plastic surgery can offer solutions to provide a younger and more masculine look to the face, chest, and body.
There are many types of cosmetic plastic surgery procedures available for men, and Dr. Steele will help you decide which procedure or combination of procedures is right for you.
With aging, many men find they are heavier with excess fat along their chest, abdomen, and waist. Others may notice excess, loose skin due to massive weight loss, genetics, or the natural aging process. Men often turn to plastic surgery to improve the contour of their chest, abdomen, and waist. With male body contouring, men can achieve a firmer, younger look utilizing techniques such as BodyTite, liposuction, and body contouring.
Dr. Steele may recommend liposuction to sculpt the waist and abdomen while removing unwanted fat. This is often combined with BodyTite and can be performed under local anesthesia in the office. Popular treatment areas for liposuction and BodyTite include the abdomen, chest, arms, back, and waist. Other procedures such as a tummy tuck or body lift are useful for removing excess loose skin along the abdomen, waist, and back.
For men who have enlarged or excess breast tissue caused by hormonal changes or obesity, and those who would like to be rid of excess skin and fat around the breasts, male breast reduction surgery at our Fort Worth clinic can restore a more masculine appearance to the chest. For men with good skin quality, liposuction with direct gland excision can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. Men whose breasts have significant drooping or sagging due to excess skin typically require skin excision with or without a free nipple graft performed under general anesthesia in the operating room.
Loose skin, heavy brows, wrinkles, and bulging fat around the eyes may convey a sad, tired, or angry appearance despite feeling otherwise. Blepharoplasty surgery can restore a more vibrant look to the upper and lower eyelids as well as resolve the puffy appearance below the eyes. This surgical procedure removes unwanted fat and skin from the eyelid and, in some cases, may reshape the lower eyelid, while a male direct brow lift repositions the eyebrows by removing excess skin in the forehead with a carefully concealed scar hidden in the forehead lines.
Male direct brow lifts and upper blepharoplasty procedures can be performed in our office under local anesthesia. Lower eyelid procedures require general anesthesia and will be performed at the surgery center. Recovery time is quick – about one week – however, the patient should avoid vigorous cardio activity for two to three weeks.
Most men prefer a strong-looking jawline and a contoured neck, and a male neck lift or FaceTite procedure can provide a more masculine appearance by sharpening the jaw and neckline. For men with early jowling and mild neck laxity, FaceTite can be a very effective, minimally invasive technique to reduce neck fat and tighten facial and neck skin.
For men with significant, hanging neck skin (turkey neck), a male direct neck lift is a better option. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia in the operating room and takes about two to three hours. It is a powerful technique that eliminates excess neck skin while leaving fine, well concealed scars within the neck.
