Most commonly requested plastic surgery for men

Thursday, May 12, 2016

As a man you are not exempt from wanting to achieve a more youthful face and body.  We have seen a substantial increase in recent years of men requesting plastic surgery.

The requested male plastic surgery procedures are varied and undertaken for a multitude of reasons.  Whether you are a baby boomer who has taken good care of yourself and want the outside to reflect how good you feel on the inside, someone you know has had surgery – loves the results and has encouraged you to explore your options or you are concerned about an aspect of your physical appearance and would like to improve it, Mr Mutimer has considerable experience in plastic surgery for men.

Whether you seek to reduce the signs of ageing, want to sculpt/shape your body, resize your nose or improve skin tone and texture, Mr Mutimer will be able to customise a procedure specific to your particular circumstances and discuss what can be realistically achieved.  Some of the most popular male plastic surgery procedures requested by men visiting Brighton Plastic Surgery include:

Rhinoplasty:

Did you know that male noses tend to have a more prominent straighter bridge and greater width to the middle of the nose?  Male rhinoplasty is a procedure that restructures the nose in order to improve its appearance and function.  The key to performing this procedure on men is to provide and improve shape without feminising the appearance of the nose. Your nose is one of the most defining characteristics of your face and for that reason, even the smallest change can have a positive impact. 

Face Lift:

It is common knowledge that, whether you are a man or woman, the first signs of ageing typically appear on the face. A facelift will tighten skin around your face, jawline and neck, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.  It isn’t a one size fits all procedure and there are different considerations that need to be given to a male face lift candidate over a female.  Mr Mutimer will discuss the best approach for you given your specific requirements and expected outcomes. He is an advocate of natural looking facelift surgery.

Blepharoplasty:

Eyelid surgery (also known as blepharoplasty) is a popular surgery undertaken by men.  The procedure refreshes the eyelids, removes excess fat from under the eye and helps reduce the signs of ageing, which often are quite prominent around the eyes.  Eyelid surgery is also performed to correct vision impairment as a result of sagging upper eyelids.  Your surgeon may recommend upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery or in some cases, a combination of both.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia):

Men can develop enlarged breast tissue – known as gynaecomastia (or in more plain speak ‘man boobs’).   The condition refers to enlargement of glandular tissue, not fat tissue. It can happen to males of any weight or age and can sometimes be an inherited condition.  Obese men can look like they have man boobs due to increased fat tissue all over the body however this is not true gynaecomastia.  Mr Mutimer can discuss a number of treatment options available to improve the appearance of the chest area and the best treatment plan given your individual circumstances.
