Liposuction, Scrotox, and Other Male Cosmetic Surgery Options

It’s an undisputed fact: Men are getting cosmetic procedures. Although the majority of plastic surgery services selected by men are non-invasive, there is a growing trend of undergoing cosmetic surgery to achieve their aesthetic goals.

Gynecomastia is the overgrowth of the male mammary gland due to the growth of fat and glandular tissue. It is a condition that often begins during adolescence, and unfortunately cannot be resolved on its own. Habits such as using marijuana, steroids, and high consumption of IPA beers can contribute to this increase. Prominent breasts can be bothersome for a man and persist despite training or weight loss.

This type of glandular gynecomastia presents a hard mammary gland that cannot be aspirated by liposuction, and requires surgical removal of any excess glandular tissue. However, if the male breast is quite fatty, liposuction can be effective.

The surgery for gynecomastia on male patients (removal of mammary glands) is done through general or local anesthesia, and takes from 1 to 3 hours depending on the plastic surgery procedures required. We recommend that patients wear a compression garment for two weeks after this form of male breast reduction. Final results in contour as well as scar quality will take from 4 to 12 months after the work is done by our plastic surgeons.

The goal of liposuction is to treat fatty bulges by removing localized fat to recreate a better-defined silhouette. This type of surgery for men is gaining popularity because it is a solution that reduces stubborn fat that won’t disappear despite exercise and dieting.

Depending on the type and area, a liposuction can last anywhere from 20 minutes in the neck to an hour for the abdomen.

Unlike liposuction, which involves sucking up fat, an abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck” tightens the skin of the abdomen. Tummy tucks tighten the skin of the abdominal wall as well as around sagging muscles. By removing excess skin and fat, the goal is to tone and strengthen the abdominal muscles.

A Tummy Tuck performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon can be completed in 2.5 to 3 hours. Take a look at our before/after tummy tuck pictures

Similar to a Tummy Tuck, a pubic lift tightens the skin around the pubic area- a pubic lift accentuates the shape directly above the penis. Weight loss can leave excessive tissue and most men find weight loss alone does not get rid of that fatty area enough.

A Pubis lift takes between 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.

A scrotum lift is an operation designed to reduce excess scrotal skin (and fascia) that arise due to age, family trait or weight-loss. By removing skin, and folding in layers, the process tightens and reduces the slack in the sack. Fortunately, scrotums tend to heal well due to the quality of skin. A scrotum lift generally takes 1 hour to complete.

The scrotum is composed of multiple layers of muscle tissue, the testicles, spermatic cord and lymphatics. Contraction of the scrotal skin (think cold water) is your body’s way of maintaining a temperature ideal for sperm production. The scrotum will sag with age, and some men experience discomfort with excessive hanging of the testes while doing different activities.

The opposite of this procedure is also in demand from men – Some men have chronic contraction of the scrotal muscles and consequently will “show” a very small and high scrotum, along with high and almost hidden testicles. BOTOX would be used as the muscle relaxant to soften or iron out the contracted folds in the sack – and consequently relax – or alleviate the testes. Like regular Botox, results last about 4-6 months (which is how long the product lasts), and results take effect between 1-2 weeks. Scrotox only takes about 20 minutes to perform and between 50-100 units are needed.

Platelet Rich Plasma is a non-surgical, great method to treat thinning hair. PRP is a natural process that uses your own blood by using a centrifuge system that separates the platelets from your blood, and is injected back into your scalp. The platelets, one type of blood cells, contain growth factors that can stimulate cell proliferation, help heal tissue regenerations – all without using chemicals or non-natural substances.

PRP has been proven to be able to help diminish hair loss, densify hair with more volume. The procedure is non-invasive and takes about 30 minutes. Regrowth starts to happen generally after 2-3 months post-treatment.

Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids essentially rejuvenates the eye contour, reducing the tired appearance and sometimes improving the visual field. The surgery is performed by removing excess tissue and skin. A very discreet scar hides in one of the natural folds of the upper eyelid.

The procedure takes less than 1 hour for both eyes and patients are able to return to normal activities within ten days. Some patients experience temporary sensitivity to light for the first few days during the recovery process.

One of the most popular methods for anti-aging in men is the minimally invasive, non-surgical Botox method. Botox – or botulinum toxin injection – blocks the message sent by your nervous system that tells your muscles to contract and instead tells them to relax. The ‘relaxation’ of the muscles is what will reduce wrinkles – and therefore prevents new wrinkles or creasing to form. It is best known for the treatment of dynamic facial lines and wrinkles, though it is also beneficial in treating overactive sweat glands, oil secretions, teeth grinding, and even headaches.

We often get asked by patients to target these specific areas: the forehead to reduce creases, corners of the eyes to prevent crow’s feet, around the mouth to target laugh lines and between the eyebrows to target frown lines. By weakening muscle contractions, the skin above the muscle can regain a smooth wrinkle-free appearance. For men with deeper forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet, Botox may be the right procedure to turn back the clock on their appearance.

Typically, a Botox appointment is completed within 20 minutes. In general, the effects of Botox last 4-6 months and a regular maintenance schedule is recommended for lasting results.
