Plastic surgery isn’t just for women. Cosmetic procedures have become extremely popular among male patients; more men than ever are choosing plastic surgery as a way of achieving their ideal body image.
Dr. Gabriel Chiu provides the following surgical procedures to assist men in rejuvenating and enhancing their face and body. When you choose Dr. Chiu, rest assured you are in the hands of a well-trained, experienced, and highly skilled surgeon.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) removes excess skin and adjusts or removes displaced fat deposits from the upper and/or lower eyelids. It can restore sightlines and remove wrinkles while making a patient’s eyes look younger and more alert.
Most patients will experience bruising and swelling for a week or two and fully recover from blepharoplasty within three weeks. The results of eyelid surgery are long lasting, and lifestyle choices can extend the beneficial effects even longer.
Facelift surgery tightens sagging muscles and removes excess skin in the mid and lower face. Wrinkles are smoothed, and new contours in the form of defined cheeks and jawlines ensure a younger-looking face. You may be interested in a facelift if you are concerned about the effects of aging on your appearance. This procedure is often combined with neck lift surgery for comprehensive rejuvenation of the lower face and neck.
Most patients return to work within a week, with full recovery usually occurring about a month after the operation.
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) adjusts the skin cartilage and bone of the nose. This procedure is used to change the appearance of the nose and face as well as correct any structural issues within the nose that may impede breathing. You may be interested in a nose job if you are unhappy with your nose’s size, shape, or structure.
Most patients return to work within a week and are fully recovered within a month of the surgery.
Liposuction surgery is used to remove pockets of unwanted excess fat. It can slim localized areas with fat deposits, contour areas concealed by excess fat, and ensure that the removed fat does not return to the treated area. While it should not be considered a weight loss procedure, liposuction can achieve a small amount of weight reduction and encourage further weight loss with a healthy lifestyle. You may be a candidate for liposuction if you have unwanted pockets of fat and are as close to your goal weight as possible.
Most patients can return to work within a week of liposuction treatment. Full recovery usually occurs four to six weeks following the operation. Final results are usually apparent within six months.
Gynecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction or male chest contouring, is performed to remove excess fat and glandular tissue from men’s chests. The procedure is used to enhance the contours of the male chest and restore symmetry and aesthetic appeal. You may be interested in gynecomastia surgery if you are unhappy with the size or shape of your chest due to enlarged male breast tissue.
Most patients return to work within one or two weeks after gynecomastia surgery, with final recovery and results occurring within one to three months.
