Cosmetic Surgery Procedures for Men
Double board-certified in plastic and general surgery, Dr. Brought provides a comprehensive variety of cosmetic surgeries for men who would like a more attractive physique, masculine chest, less facial wrinkling or a toned stomach. Men can choose from several minimally invasive cosmetic surgery treatments, ranging from erasing fine lines and wrinkles with Botox injections to liposuction, abdominoplasty, blepharoplasty and pectoral implants.
Botox contains safe, FDA-approved ingredients for relaxing constricted muscles contributing to fine lines and wrinkles. Botox smooths away wrinkles by targeting the platysma muscle, which covers a broad area of the lower jaw, neck and upper chest. Chemicals in Botox prevent the transmission of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine so that muscles stop producing the wrinkles caused when they contract and expand. By blocking the release of acetylcholine, Botox allows the muscles to remain in a relaxed state, creating visibly smoother, younger-looking skin.
Additionally, Botox is approved to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating of the hands, underarms and feet. Men suffering uncontrollable sweating will find that Botox injections significantly reduce perspiration output so that shaking hands or wearing certain types of clothing no longer presents an embarrassing problem.

A minimally invasive procedure, blepharoplasty can be functional or cosmetic and involves adjustments to the amount and shape of the eyelids. A blepharoplasty procedure repositions or removes excess eyelid tissue in less than an hour under local anesthesia.
Some men experience drooping eyelids as they age, when the skin loses structural proteins necessary for keeping the skin firm. Blepharoplasty may also be recommended when sagging eyelids promote fat accumulation and bags under the eyes as eyelids continue to droop. Heavily drooping eyelids can impair your peripheral (side) vision as well as the upper part of your vision field. See if blepharoplasty is right for you.
Enlarged or overdeveloped breasts in men may be genetic or due to abnormal hormone levels and/or obesity. Some medications may also promote gynecomastia, such as anti-androgens, calcium channel blockers and antibiotics. Gynecomastia is often a source of embarrassment and emotional discomfort in men that restricts their ability to engage in intimate relationships and physical activities.
Dr. Brought can help restore your self-confidence by performing a male breast reduction procedure that not only removes localized fat, but also adds symmetry to the chest area.
When your chest fails to respond to exercises intended to define pectoral muscles, many men consider silicone pectoral implants. Available in different sizes and shapes to accommodate your needs, pectoral implants look and feel just like your natural chest muscles to give you that finely chiseled, masculine chest you've always wanted but could never achieve.
Dr. Brought may also suggest liposuction to enhance the results of a pectoral implant procedure if you have excess fat around your chest area. Read more.
Commonly performed on the abdomen (specifically the "love handles") and chest, liposuction for men is a safe, effective method of reducing pockets of fat resistant to exercise or dietary changes. In addition to contouring your body to give you a leaner and more attractive physique by defining underlying muscle, liposuction can achieve dramatic results with minimal incisions and rapid recovery times.
Men also seek liposuction procedures for removing unwanted fat from their thighs, lower back and neck.
To firm and flatten the male abdomen, Dr. Brought provides tummy tucks, which involve the removal of fat and excess skin from your middle to lower abdomen. Men over 35 often find it difficult to achieve a toned stomach when aging, as hormones and genetics come heavily into play during middle age.
Abdominoplasty can help reduce the appearance of a protruding stomach that won't go away no matter how much you exercise or diet. Performed as an outpatient procedure, abdominoplasties are becoming more popular with men seeking an effective, body-contouring treatment that does not require lengthy recovery times.
Men experiencing rapid weight loss following gastric bypass surgery or extreme dieting may need excess skin removed or tightened through cosmetic surgery. One area of the body where skin tends to hang following extreme weight loss is under the upper arms.
To minimize sagging skin under upper arms, Dr. Brought may suggest brachioplasty, a minimally invasive procedure meant to tighten and smooth supportive tissues underneath the upper arms. Men with an inherited tendency towards sagging arm skin will also benefit from a brachioplasty procedure.
Although you should expect desirable results, Dr. Brought wants his patients to understand there is no guarantee you will see optimal results. Outcomes of cosmetic surgeries largely depend on your general health, your lifestyle (both past and present) and how well you heal from surgery.
SPRSI takes a holistic approach to meeting or even exceeding your cosmetic surgery expectations by including instructions on dietary choices, exercise programs, self-care before and after surgery and making positive lifestyle changes.
