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.
Male breast reduction for the treatment of 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 a tummy tuck 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.
DR. TEITELBAUM'S UNIQUE APPROACH TO MALE PLASTIC SURGERY
In general, men have specific goals for plastic surgery. Dr. Teitelbaum believes his role is to help those patients understand what procedures will bring them the outcomes they desire. From a technical point of view, his goal is to make his patients look better, without any obvious signs of surgery. A “done look” is unacceptable to all men.
Often, men are some of the happiest plastic surgery patients. For instance, when a man loses his love handles, loose skin under his chin, or excess fat in his chest, he simply looks more fit, strong, and masculine. Dr. Teitelbaum firmly believes that any plastic surgery procedure he performs should be carefully inconspicuous to others. The key in retaining the masculinity of his patients is keeping with the integrity of the patient’s original form.
Most of Dr. Teitelbaum’s male patients come in for stubborn areas that are resistant to efforts such as diet and exercise. These include: neck fat, loose skin after weight loss, or excess fat in the chest or outer thighs. Inappropriate fat deposits in men are not just a matter of looking thin, in the wrong places, excess fat can undesirably feminize a man’s body. Dr. Teitelbaum has a very keen eye for proportion and the types of improvement that make a man look better with plastic surgery, and you can rely upon him to help sculpt an ideal body for you.
