Male Plastic Surgery
Several men experience weight fluctuations that can lead to a significant apron of excess skin on certain parts of their bodies. The chest and abdomen are the most common areas treated for men. Whether you are struggling with enlarged breasts, sagging skin, or excess fat, no one should feel uncomfortable or insecure about their appearance. Dr. Linder offers several body contouring procedures specifically designed for men who are looking to improve their physical appearance. These procedures include gynecomastia surgery, tummy tuck surgery, and liposuction.
Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, is commonly performed on men to reduce their enlarged and feminine breasts. Gynecomastia can develop due to hormones, genetics, obesity, or the use of alcohol and certain medications. Many men who struggle with this condition may often feel insecure about their large chest and experience physical and emotional discomfort. Only board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeons should perform gynecomastia surgery, as the specifics and details of this operation require skill and understanding of the functional anatomy of the male chest. In more severe cases, gynecomastia surgery may require both liposuction and surgical removal.
Tummy tuck surgery, or abdominoplasty, can be performed on men who have lost a substantial amount of weight or have weak rectus muscles. A tummy tuck procedure can improve core strength by tightening the abdominal muscles. This procedure is performed to remove excess fatty tissue and correct abdominal skin laxity for a more slim and toned midsection. Dr. Linder offers a variety of different tummy tuck techniques, including a mini, modified, extended, and belt procedure.
Stubborn or unwanted fat can often cause frustration, especially when you are so close to achieving your weight loss goal. Liposuction can eliminate stubborn fat deposits while Dr. Linder reshapes certain areas of the body. In addition to improving the appearance of your body, liposuction can also be combined with gynecomastia surgery to treat feminine-looking breasts.
