Plastic surgery is no longer for women, and men in fact now represent a significant percentage of Dr. Teitelbaum’s patients. From face to chest to love handles, men now seek surgical improvement in nearly every area that women have for decades.
Reduction of the male chest—gynecomastia—is the most popular plastic surgery operation for men. Restoring a masculine shape and reducing the protuberance of a chest makes a man look stronger, leaner, and more attractive.
Men do not need tummy tucks in the same sense that women do unless they have lost very large amounts of weight. But many other men have a natural separation of the muscles of their abdominal wall, which can give them almost a pregnant look, and along with it many have a hernia in their belly button area.
Liposuction of the abdomen and hips is very effective for men. The hips in particular can accumulate large amounts of fat in even very thin men, and this fat can be very resistant to diet and exercise. When this is a problem, liposuction is often the only way to improve this area for men.
