In recent years men have become increasingly aware of their appearance. Consequently, plastic surgery is no longer the realm of women alone. Although men are just as likely as women to want cosmetic surgery, they are more often reluctant to talk about it or admit they’ve had a procedure done.
At Dr. David G. Glick M.D. Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, we specialize in plastic surgery tailored specifically for men. Whether it’s liposculpting to target and shape those abdominal muscles, treating gynecomastia (the development of male breasts), or even augmenting the chest or calf muscles with implants, Dr. Glick is especially attuned to the cosmetic needs of the male patient. We also perform an array of facial cosmetic procedures for men including hair transplantation, rhinoplasty, face lift, brow lift, ear and eyelid surgery, and non-operative facial rejuvenation. Ask Dr. Glick about how to improve your looks in a safe, professional and discreet manner.
Gynecomastia, a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, is common in men of any age. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease or the use of certain drugs. Gynecomastia can cause emotional discomfort and impair man’s self confidence. The average California male breast reduction operation is performed on an out–patient, ambulatory basis in our fully accredited, hospital–type operating suite, which is certified by The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). Surgery takes from 60 to 90 minutes and is performed under general anesthesia.
Dr. Glick frequently performs liposuction for men around the waistline. The surgery can restore the confidence that a man often thinks is unattainable. Liposculpture and lipo-etching are just two of the newest techniques Dr. Larsen has brought to the operating room to sculpt a good-looking abdomen.
Injectables and Skin Renewal Procedures
We also cater to men’s skin care and nonsurgical needs with procedures such as laser hair removal, laser skin rejuvenation, and facials. Microdermabrasion, BOTOX®, Restylane, Radiesse and medical grade skin care products are also common non-surgical treatments for men. All these procedures are performed in a safe and professional environment at Buckhead Plastic Surgery. Treatments are directly overseen by Dr. Glick.
After Weight Loss
Procedures like abdominoplasty or belt lipectomy can be beneficial for a man who has experienced major weight loss. Removing the loose tissue around the midsection with these procedures can provide a flatter abdomen and improve lower body shape.
Nose reshaping can balance out the nose with a man’s other facial features. Often combined with chin augmentation, a rhinoplasty can meet a variety of different aesthetic goals, such as: reducing irregularities on the nose, narrowing a wide bridge, or turning the tip up or down.
The ideal chin is prominent while remaining in proportion to the nose and forehead. If the chin is small, these other features can appear larger than normal. With a chin implant, a small chin can be augmented, resulting in a significant impact on a man’s overall look. Dr. Glick makes a short incision below the chin to insert the specially-shaped silicone facial implant in front of the jawbone.
