If you are mistakenly assuming plastic surgery isn’t “manly” enough for you, think again. There are numerous procedures specifically designed to restore your masculinity while enhancing your appearance. At New Reflections Plastic Surgery, Dr. Patel is committed to helping all of his patients, male and female, achieve their aesthetic goals. Here are five treatments men can benefit from at our office.
If you are looking for a way to hone your six-pack without surgery, SculpSure might be the solution you are seeking. This laser treatment heats isolated areas of fat cells, destroying them so they can be flushed out by the body. As the cells are eliminated, the treated area becomes slimmer and more contoured. This non-invasive procedure does not require any anesthesia and only takes 25 minutes to complete. Our patients experience a fat reduction of up to 24 percent after a single treatment. You can also choose to undergo additional procedures to see even greater results.
If you want more fat reduction than you can achieve with SculpSure, liposuction is another body contouring option. This treatment uses a narrow tube or cannula, which Dr. Patel inserts directly into the treatment area. The cannula delivers laser energy into the fat deposit, liquefying the cells before gently suctioning them out of the body. The laser heat may also tighten skin slightly in the treatment area to produce a smoother contour. Local anesthesia is usually the top choice for this outpatient procedure and recovery time may be as short as a few days.
This specialized liposuction technique is designed to help you sculpt the six-pack you have been unable to obtain with diet and exercise alone. Dr. Patel carefully reduces fat cells between the abdominal muscles to create a washboard effect on your abdomen. The procedure is done similarly to traditional liposuction under local or general anesthesia. Patients are back in action within about one week, flaunting those toned abs with confidence.
When you look in the mirror, is there a much wearier reflection staring back at you? Your aging eyes may be to blame. The thinner skin around the eyes is often one of the first places where time and gravity can take their toll. If your eyelids are starting to sag and droop, or you are noticing perpetual puffiness underneath the eyes, a surgical lift may produce the results you want.
This outpatient procedure, which is performed using a local anesthetic, removes excess skin and tissue from the eyelids to create a cleaner contour around the eyes and refresh your appearance overall. The procedure takes just a couple of hours to complete, and most men are back to their regular schedules within two weeks. Results are dramatic and last many years.
Male Breast Reduction
One of the most traumatic conditions facing men today is gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts. While it is not typically a serious medical concern, it can be debilitating from a psychological and social standpoint. Some men find gynecomastia resolves on its own, but when that doesn’t occur, surgical breast reduction can be the answer.
Dr. Patel performs male breast reduction under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Incisions are carefully placed where visible scarring will be minimized after surgery. Through the incisions, Dr. Patel removes excess tissue and skin to create a smoother, more masculine chest contour. Recovery from male breast reduction is about two weeks.
