The number of men seeking plastic surgery is at an all-time high as men of all ages and backgrounds want to look and feel their best. There are many specific factors to consider when treating male patients, and Dr. Genaro Valladolid is committed to offering the highest level of care in a safe, welcoming environment. He understands how to improve a male patient’s appearance while still preserving a masculine, athletic look.
The most popularly requested plastic surgery procedures for men include the following:
Gynecomastia is a condition in which a man’s breasts are enlarged and woman-like. An estimated 40 to 60 percent of men experience gynecomastia at some point in their lives, and can suffer from related physical and emotional discomfort.
Dr. Valladolid offers male breast reduction to men with gynecomastia. Depending on the size of the patient’s breasts and the composition of the tissue, Dr. Valladolid may use liposuction and/or surgical excision techniques to remove tissue and flatten and firm the breasts. He can also reduce the size of large areolas and reposition them higher on the breasts if desired.
Countless men seek liposuction to remove problematic areas of unwanted fat that do not respond to diet or exercise habits. The most common liposuction treatment areas for men include the abdomen, flanks, and area underneath the chin.
Men who wish for a more youthful and energetic expression turn to procedures like facelift, neck lift, brow lift and eyelid surgery. Facelift tightens and lifts the tissues of the lower portion of the face, including the chin and jawline, whereas eyelid surgery and brow lift refine the eye area. Neck lift focuses exclusively on the neck and the area underneath the chin.
Otoplasty, or ear reshaping, can reduce the size of prominent ears or bring protruding ears closer to the sides of the face. This procedure is particularly common in young children to prevent teasing and bullying due to their appearance.
Rhinoplasty is common among men who are bothered by the size, shape, angle or characteristics of the nose. The nose reshaping procedure can improve an oversized, crooked or asymmetrical nose, or it can refine the features of the nose like the nostrils or the tip. Rhinoplasty can also improve structural problems, like a deviated septum, that interfere with normal breathing function.
Men who want to turn back the clock without undergoing surgery can achieve great results with Botox and fillers. These cosmetic injectable products minimize the appearance of wrinkles and other signs of aging with virtually no pain, quick results and no downtime. Botox is particularly effective on frown lines between the eyebrows and wrinkles across the forehead. Dermal fillers are great for filling in facial creases and folds, such as nasolabial folds, or for restoring lost volume to areas of the face that need it.
