Male Cosmetic Surgery
As cosmetic surgery becomes more popular and effective, more and more men turn to Dr. Potter for the exceptional results made possible by cosmetic procedures of all kinds. Gynecomastia treatment and other male-specific cosmetic surgery options are available at Graystone Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Potter understands the unique needs of male patients and is able to treat them in a comfortable, welcoming environment.
Men with gynecomastia have unusually large mammary glands and enlarged breasts. In the most severe cases, the breasts may even lactate. The condition has no single clear cause, although hormonal imbalance is thought to play a role in many cases. Often, obesity plays a substantial role. Some adolescent boys may experience gynecomastia during puberty. In addition, some medications that affect hormone levels may cause or contribute to the development of gynecomastia.
Gynecomastia is often a source of embarrassment for both men and boys. A very effective male-specific form of cosmetic breast reduction surgery is available for men who want to treat gynecomastia surgically. Male cosmetic breast reduction surgery is similar to conventional breast reduction in that Dr. Potter removes excess glandular material, fat, skin, and tissue in order to create a flatter, tighter chest.
Surgery for gynecomastia may also be coupled with high-precision body contouring procedures as appropriate. Dr. Potter will help each male cosmetic surgery patient seeking relief from gynecomastia determine exactly which procedures are appropriate for his specific case. Gynecomastia may be embarrassing, but effective cosmetic surgery offers new hope to men everywhere who are ready for a change.
Body contouring procedures can help men achieve a fitter, more attractive body shape. Patients can rely on a variety of male-specific body contouring procedures that target common problem areas.
Liposuction can help remove small to moderate amounts of excess fat from the abdomen, pectoral region, back, and other areas where men commonly experience fat buildup. While liposuction is not appropriate for removing large amounts of weight, it can be a great way to tone up the abdomen and other areas for a more sculpted look. Liposuction is also commonly a part of male cosmetic breast reduction surgery to treat gynecomastia.
A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, is a great way to tighten loose skin and muscles in the abdomen for an enhanced appearance. Tummy tucks are often combined with liposuction and other body contouring techniques for a more comprehensive effect.
Facial Plastic Surgery
Cosmetic surgery of the face offers solutions to drooping facial skin, injured, or disproportionate facial features, and other aesthetic flaws. Dr. Potter’s male cosmetic surgery patients enjoy a variety of surgical treatments to address all kinds of imperfections for a naturally handsome appearance.
Dr. Potter can surgically remove drooping skin around the eyes using eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). Eyelid surgery offers both functional and aesthetic benefits to male cosmetic surgery patients. By removing drooping eyelid skin that obscures peripheral vision, Dr. Potter leaves the eyes with a more youthful appearance.
The brow lift is designed to smooth deep forehead wrinkles and lift hooded brows. Dr. Potter will make incisions along the top of the forehead above the hairline, through which he will tighten muscles in the forehead and remove excess skin. Finally, he will reposition the forehead skin to raise the brow and suture it in place to heal. Once healing is complete, the male cosmetic surgery patient will have a smoother, more attractive forehead and brow.
Facelift surgery is performed to tighten and smooth the facial skin, eliminating signs of aging throughout the face and jaw area. A variety of facelift procedures are available, depending on the needs of the patient. Dr. Potter will meet with each male cosmetic surgery patient to determine which strategy is most appropriate.
Realistic facial implants are available to improve the appearance of the cheeks, lips, and chin. Men concerned by thin lips, cheeks with less definition, weak chins, or facial asymmetry can use these implants to improve their appearance. Facial implants are typically placed through incisions inside the mouth in order to avoid visible scarring.
Rhinoplasty, also called a nose job, is a popular procedure in which the nose is reshaped and repositioned to achieve a more symmetrical and attractive shape. Male cosmetic surgery patients who desire a different look can rely on the attractive, natural results made possible by rhinoplasty.
