Trends in Male Plastic Surgery: Tie Tucks

As detailed in a recent issue of Hollywood Reporter, there’s a new trend in male plastic surgery that’s garnering lots of attention from Hollywood royalty. The so-called “Tie Tuck” can help guys achieve the sculpted jawlines sported by Tom Brady, Brad Pitt and Daniel Craig. If a sagging jaw line has been bothering you, this minimally-invasive procedure may be an effective option for sprucing up those jiggly jowls that tend to droop more with age.

The Tie Tuck is supposed to lift and tighten the skin and tissue along the jaw, where pockets of fat tend to accumulate during middle age. Loose facial tissues, or “jowls” are common in both men and women in their 40’s and beyond, and are a natural part of the aging process as fat pads from the cheeks make their slow descent downward.

The Tie Tuck is a means of helping men turn back the clock by providing a more contoured, sculpted jawline.

What is a Tie Tuck for Men?

The Tie Tuck is a two-hour multi-faceted procedure that targets both stubborn fat pockets and sagging skin around the chin and jaw. The first part includes tissue tightening and collagen remodeling with Ultherapy and radiofrequency energy. Botox or Dysport is then injected to weaken the muscles that draw the face downward, giving the appearance of wider jowls. The procedure also uses one of the latest injectables – Kybella – to blast away fatty deposits seen in double chins. Lastly, dermal fillers such as Radiesse or Juvederm may be used to plump up creases left from drooping fat pads. The end result is a more youthful, defined jawline. Men can maintain their results with periodic laser toning and Botox.

Other options for a contoured neck and jawline

The Tie Tuck may be appropriate for men who aren’t quite ready to go under the knife, or simply prefer a less invasive approach to looking younger. At the office of Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. B. Aviva Preminger, we offer numerous solutions to men and women who are bothered by “jowls” or a “turkey neck.” When lunch-time treatments like injectables and Ultherapy fail to get the desired result, patients may benefit from one or a combination of the following procedures:

  • Liposuction around the jaw line
  • Neck lift, offering results that last 10 or more years
  • Lower facelift to tighten skin and reduce sagging near the jaw and neck

There are numerous factors including the patient’s age, skin type, anatomy and desired outcome, that will determine which type of surgery or treatment is best for getting a chiseled jaw line.

What Men Are Asking For From Their Plastic Surgeon

Shirtless muscular male torsoMen have increasingly been taking advantage of cosmetic surgery procedures that women have been availing themselves of for years. Men are much more conscious of their looks, and if some cosmetic surgery can give a man more confidence either socially or in the workplace or both, then why not?

Top NYC cosmetic surgeons like Dr. B. Aviva Preminger have a menu of key procedures specifically tailored for men to achieve attractive and natural looking results.

Top cosmetic procedures NYC men request


The most requested procedure in male cosmetic surgery is liposuction. A skilled practitioner like Dr. Preminger can remove deposits of fat that remain resistant to even the most stringent diets and exercise regimens. These stubborn pockets of fat are usually found in the waistline, abdomen, lower back, buttocks, chest, and of course, the love handles.

Standard liposuction employs hollow, stainless tubes called cannulas through which the subcutaneous fat is suctioned from the problem areas. Power liposuction uses oscillating cannulas which can remove higher volumes of fat in a shorter period of time.

The procedure is not for everyone. The perfect candidate is a man who has realistic expectations about the results both short and long term, is in good physical shape, and is a non-smoker. Ask Dr. Preminger if you’re a good candidate for male liposuction.


If you’re suffering from gynecomastia or overdeveloped breast tissue, you may be tired of enduring embarrassment, either while being intimate with a partner or taking off your shirt at the beach. You already know that the condition can be caused by genetic disposition or certain medications. What is important for you to know is that Dr. Preminger can correct this embarrassing condition through standard cosmetic techniques, usually through liposuction.

Gynecomastia is the presence of excess glandular and breast tissue in a male. The amount of excess tissue will dictate whether liposuction alone, or liposuction combined with breast gland removal, or liposuction, gland, and skin removal is indicated for the best results. A private consultation with Dr. Preminger about male breast reduction will help clarify optimal next steps for you.


Men hear the phrase “nice six pack” and wonder if they’ll ever reach that particular male nirvana. Tough work schedules, eating on the run, not being able to maintain the workout schedule you’d like, previous major weight loss, or simply hereditary disposition can all lend to a soft middle. A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is not to be taken lightly. It is a major surgery which will result in some scarring and should be considered a last resort when diet and exercise cannot provide the result you desire.

There are complete abdominoplasties which involve the removal of fat and skin from the entire abdominal area including moving of the navel, mini abdominoplasties which are for fatty deposits and excess skin generally below the line of the navel, and circumferential abdominoplasties which also include excess skin and fat removal from around the circumference of the waist including the lower back. A consultation with Dr. Preminger will guide you as to whether a male tummy tuck is for you.


As we age, we inevitably lose the sharp contoured lines of our faces we took for granted when we were young. Our skin loses its tight dewy look and begins to sag and wrinkle virtually before our eyes. Some say these wrinkles and crow’s feet add hard-earned character to our faces while others say if I can bring back my youthful look, I will.

Dr. Preminger has been successfully performing face and neck lifts for men for many years and has earned their trust that her decisions and craft are always spot on. Ask Dr. Preminger for her advice on a face or a neck lift if it’s something you’ve been contemplating.


This is not as much a procedure as it is a technique. Laser liposuction is revolutionizing certain liposuction procedures by actually using the laser to liquefy fat cells and allow them to be drawn from the body through small cannulas (stainless steel tubes) leaving virtually no mark. The surrounding tissue around the fat tissue remains intact because of the precise targeting of the laser, and the procedure is quick and painless.

If you have a demanding work schedule and would like to take care of removing stubborn fat deposits in several areas of your body at the same time, laser liposuction for men is the most time-efficient procedure to do just that.
