What Men Are Asking For From Their Plastic Surgeon

Men 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

Male Liposuction

The most requested procedure in male cosmetic surgery is liposuction. A skilled practitioner like Dr. Preminger can remove deposits of fat that remains 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.

Male Breast Reduction

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.

Tummy Tuck

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 that 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.

Facelifts and Necklifts

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 necklifts 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 necklift if it’s something you’ve been contemplating.

Laser Liposuction

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.
