The male cosmetic surgery includes all the cosmetic surgery and aesthetic medicine treatments designed to eliminate or mitigate both congenital imperfections than those derived from normal aging of the male body processes. Today the use of surgery and aesthetic medicine by men is increasingly frequent. The man turns to the plastic surgeon above all to obtain a more harmonious nose, a rejuvenated face, a more toned abdomen or to increase the volume of certain parts of the body (e.g. cheekbones or calves) by means of prosthetic implantation.

WHAT ARE THE MOST REQUIRED SURGICAL INTERVENTIONS BY MAN?

The plastic and cosmetic surgery operations most frequently requested by men are:

1) ABDOMINOPLASTY
L ‘ abdominoplasty allows you to remove excess skin and fat from the upper and lower part of the abdomen and toning the muscles of the abdominal wall. The cosmetic surgery of the abdomen allows you to dramatically improve the appearance of a relaxed belly and / or prominent removing excess skin, the localized accumulation of fat and laxity of the abdominal muscles.

2) Blepharoplasty
The  blepharoplasty  is a surgical procedure that corrects defects such as upper eyelid drooping, fat bags and dark circles that make the eyes look tired, aging and the face and sometimes interfering with vision. The cosmetic eyelid surgery is the removal of the skin and excess fat inside the upper and lower eyelids and in repositioning the drooping eyebrow. With blepharoplasty it is also possible to change the shape of the gaze by lifting and / or repositioning the lateral angle of the eye (so-called cantoplasty and cantopexy ).

3) GYNECOMASTY
The term gynecomastia is used to indicate the presence of a mammary gland unusually developed in humans. Although little is said about it, it is, however, a cosmetic defect frequently found in the male population, which can be a source of embarrassment in interpersonal relationships and a cause of profound insecurities.

The increase in the volume of the male breast can depend on:

  • Excessive development of glandular tissue (true gynecomastia).
  • Excessive development of glandular and adipose tissue (mixed gynecomastia).
  • Excessive development of adipose tissue (false gynecomastia.

Gynecomastia therapy is surgical and consists in the removal of breast tissue, adipose tissue and sometimes excess skin. With this type of surgical therapy it is possible to give the chest a more toned and natural appearance.

4) LIFTING
The  face lifting allows you to give the face a more youthful appearance by eliminating the imperfections caused by prolonged exposure to the sun, by the stress of everyday life, by incorrect nutrition, by the effects of the force of gravity and by the passing of the years and which occur with more or less deep wrinkles around the eyes and between the nose and mouth, with the lowering of the cheeks and the formation of deposits of fat located mainly around the chin and neck.

The face lift allows you to eliminate these imperfections by removing wrinkles and excess fat, repositioning the muscles of the face and relaxing the skin of the face and neck.

5) And LIPOSCULPTURE LIPOSUCTION
The  liposuction  and liposculpture are cosmetic surgery procedures that men increasingly use to get a more harmonious body and remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas such as the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper limbs, chin and neck.

Liposculpture is an evolution of liposuction in that it uses microcannulas to “sculpt” very selected areas of the body. Although body remodeling surgery is not a substitute for diet and exercise, liposuction and liposculpture allow you to remove localized adiposities that cannot be eliminated in other ways.

6) OTOPLASTY
The  otoplasty  is a surgical procedure that allows you to reposition and reshape the prominent ears (so-called “fan” ears, “protruding” or “loop”) and to correct defects present from birth or post-traumatic (lack or partial or complete ear loss, ears too small or too large, lobe too wide or too long, etc.) and results of demolition operations of the auricle following the removal of tumors.

7) CHIN PROSTHESIS AND CHEEKBONES
The  chin and cheekbones remodeling surgery allows to change the shape and size of the chin, improving the harmony of the face and its appearance.

More precisely, cosmetic chin surgery allows you to increase the size of a too small, too large or too large chin with a solid silicone, Goretex or Medpor (additive mentoplasty) prosthesis. The cosmetic surgery of the cheekbones allows instead to increase the volume and modify the shape of the malar region (cheekbones) by using prostheses, the injection of resorbable or permanent fillers or with lipofilling.

8) HEARING OF CALF
The aesthetic enhancement surgery calf volume changes the shape and size of too small calves.

This type of surgery is increasingly requested by men, especially by those who dedicate themselves to bodybuilding and who, despite the exercise and an appropriate diet, are unable to achieve a sufficient volume of the calves.

9) And Rhinoseptoplasty Rhinoplasty
The  rhinoplasty  allows you to change the shape and size of the nose, enhancing facial harmony without distorting its appearance.

More precisely, cosmetic nose surgery allows you to increase or decrease the size of the nose (too small, too large or too wide), change the shape of the back (hollow or with the presence of a hump or hump) and of the tip (too large, too narrow or too long), change the width of the nostrils and change the angle between the forehead and nose or between the nose and upper lip.

With this type of intervention, it is also possible to correct post-traumatic or present birth defects and respiratory problems. If breathing difficulties are caused by the deviation of the nasal septum it is necessary to proceed simultaneously with a ” septoplasty ” intervention in order to model and reposition the deviated nasal septum.

10) HAIR TRANSPLANTATION
Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that allows the transfer of a certain quantity of hair bulbs from the patient himself from one region of the scalp to another.

The hair transplant operation consists in the excision of a scalp strip taken from the occipital region of the head and in the reimplantation of the single hair bulbs, carefully selected, in the areas to be transplanted.

The treatment is generally performed under local anesthesia, lasts a few hours and is absolutely painless. The intervention does not require any dressing and the patient can return to carry out his normal daily activities within 48 hours.

The aesthetic result achievable with hair transplantation is natural, long lasting and repeatable.

FAQ MALE AESTHETIC SURGERY

Q. How do you apply for funding for a male cosmetic surgery?
R. It is possible to request the payment in installments  of a male cosmetic surgery , by asking your cosmetic surgeon what are the  methods of financing cosmetic surgery in cases where there is no immediate financial availability to pay for an intervention.

 

Q. What is cantoplasty in humans?
R.  The canthoplasty is a surgical procedure that allows to modify the shape and position of the lateral portion of the eye. This type of intervention is also required by men in case you want to change the shape of the eye making it more “Asian”. There are two types of cantoplasty : a lifting cantoplasty , also called cantopexy , in which the surgeon raises and restores tone to the lateral canthus of the eye, without however determining very substantial changes to the shape; a cantoplasty proper, where the surgeon releases the lateral cantal ligament and reposition it on the orbital edge, thus managing to obtain any modification and lifting of the lateral part of the eye, without great limits. This second surgery is much more aggressive and is generally more in demand in the female gender. The cost of a canthoplasty can range from 4,000 € to 8,000 € .
Q. Is lip-fingering also common among men?
The request for the request to redo the lips is much less common in men than in women, but, in the case in which the male lips are particularly thin and hypotrophic, it is normal that the man also requires an aesthetic improvement of this anatomical area. The techniques in men for increasing the volume of the lips are identical to those of the woman.
The simplest method is to use a resorbable filler, such as hyaluronic acid specific for the lips, which has reabsorption times around 6 months. It is absolutely not recommended to use non-resorbable fillers. The cost of a cc of hyaluronic acid for the lips is €  400  . Another method widely used is that of lipofilling, that is, transferring a little fatty tissue from your body into the lip region using syringes. This method is very effective, it is permanent but has the disadvantage that it must be performed in a small operating room. Lip lip filling costs € 2,500 . A permanent, rapid and particularly satisfying method is that of using Permalip. It is a small tube of very soft solid silicone that is inserted inside the lips with a little local anesthesia. The great advantage of this method is that it is a permanent but reversible method so that if a patient is not satisfied with the result for any reason, he can return exactly to the starting situation in a few minutes. The cost of the Permalip is around € 3,000
