Male Cosmetic Surgery
More men than ever are deciding to have cosmetic surgery to improve their physique and facial features and to feel more confident in their daily lives.
Here at Mount Stuart Hospital we offer many cosmetic body and face enhancing surgical procedures for men. These include: male breast reduction surgery, liposuction, face lifts, eyelid surgery and nose jobs. Our highly regarded cosmetic surgeons will discuss the best individual options for a man seeking cosmetic surgery or non-surgical treatments. Our non-surgical options for men include: muscle relaxing injections, tattoo removal using laser treatment and acne treatment.
Gynaecomastia is also referred to as enlarged male breast tissue or man boobs. This common condition, where the breast tissues of a boy or man swell and become larger than normal, may be due to a number of reasons and can cause embarrassment and a lack of self-confidence.
A cosmetic male breast reduction, also called gynaecomastia, is carried out under general anaesthetic and takes around 60 to 90 minutes to perform. During the procedure your cosmetic surgeon will remove excess breast tissue to create a more masculine chest. They may use liposuction as well. This will be discussed in detail at your consultation with your cosmetic surgeon.
Blepharoplasty involves the removal and smoothing of excess skin and the repositioning fat surrounding the eyes. It is also called eye bag removal or eyelid surgery depending upon whether surgery is performed on the upper or lower lids. It treats the loose or sagging skin that can result in folds and puffiness in your eyelids and under eyes to rejuvenate these areas. It can also improve your sight if your vision is affected by slack eyelid skin.
When performing a blepharoplasty in men your cosmetic surgeon will make the brow positioning and initial eyelid incision lower than in women to create a natural and masculine look.
Blepharoplasty is a day case procedure that’s performed under general anaesthetic and takes around one or two hours.
A rhinoplasty is also called nose reshaping or a nose job. As noses are the central feature of your face they draw attention and if you’re not content with your nose this can lead to feelings of self-consciousness.
Men may want a smaller, larger, thinner, wider, straighter, less bumpy nose. A rhinoplasty can adjust the size, shape and length of your nose. It can improve the appearance of your whole face, increase your confidence about the way you look and in some cases can also help make breathing easier.
These changes are achieved by modifying or removing bone or cartilage or using a graft of bone and cartilage under general anaesthetic. The operation takes up to three hours.
