Three Aesthetic Concerns Men Have

June 11 2017

The number of men seeking cosmetic enhancement continues to surge. Like women, more men are being proactive in taking care of their looks. But just what exactly does plastic surgery offer men? In this blog post, our Atlanta plastic surgeons take a look at three aesthetic concerns men have and how plastic surgery addresses them.

1. Man Boobs

Gynecomastia, commonly known as “man boobs,” is a medical condition that affects at least 40 percent of all men. The condition, which is characterized by enlarged breast tissue, is a source of both physical and emotional discomfort for many men. Excess tissue and skin can cause chafing and make exercising uncomfortable and even painful. The appearance of “man boobs” can be embarrassing and cause men to shy away from wearing tight shirts or going shirtless in public settings. Male breast reduction surgery removes breast tissue and, if necessary, stubborn fat, for a more classically masculine chest. Following the procedure, patients report a boost in self-confidence, physical relief and improved overall wellness.

2. Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are branching wrinkles that form on the outer edges of the eyes and can be a result of years of squinting or the simple passage of time. Men who are self-conscious about this telltale sign of aging have many treatment options available, including Botox. This minimally invasive procedure takes only 20 minutes to complete and can reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and other facial wrinkles painlessly. Although Botox is effective in creating a younger-looking appearance, its applications are limited. Botox only treats facial lines and wrinkles and does not treat other facial aging concerns like loose, sagging skin, jowls and sunken skin areas. Surgical procedures like facelift and eyelid surgery can provide men who have multiple aesthetic concerns with a more overall rejuvenated appearance.

3. Spare Tire

Bulging fat popping out from underneath a shirt can be frustrating, especially for men and women who spend countless hours exercising and dieting. Liposuction can treat stubborn areas of fat, including the “spare tire” of fat around the waist. The body contouring procedure removes not only the fat deposits in the area, but the fat cells as well so that the fat bulges won’t return. Liposuction allows men who are self-conscious about their abdominal and mid-body regions to feel more confident about themselves.
