Although plastic surgery is extremely popular around the world, not everyone likes to admit they want to have work done. For many years, cosmetic enhancement procedures have been viewed as a woman’s thing to do. However, as the years have gone by, an increasing number of men are coming forward to have treatments done and are not afraid to admit it.

There are several cosmetic procedures men can undergo, from liposuction to chest contouring, to Botox. There are just as many benefits for male surgeries as there are for women, so the taboo surrounding male plastic surgery in New York has definitely become a thing of the past. At our office, New York cosmetic surgeon, Dr. David Shafer, offers several treatments specifically geared toward men’s needs, including love handle reduction, Botox and fillers, chest reduction, and many others.

One of the most popular procedures for men is liposuction, which can be performed on virtually any area of the body, including the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and arms. For men, the most popular areas to undergo liposuction are the love handles, neck and chest. Stubborn fat tends to accumulate in these areas and no matter how much diet or exercise is done, the fat cells don’t seem to get any smaller. New York liposuction can address these issues, leaving male patients feeling younger and revitalized. Along with neck and chin liposuction, Dr. Shafer can also perform a neck lift to tighten the skin in the area if it appears saggy. The result is a more defined jaw line and slender neck, without the extreme surgical process of getting a full face lift.

New York male liposuction patients can also enjoy the benefits of reducing their chests. Many men suffer from enlarged breasts, a condition called Gynecomastia. Gynecomastia usually develops around puberty, but can also be caused by hormonal imbalances, drug abuse, steroid use, and prescription drugs. The excess fat in the chest cannot be eliminated through diet and exercise, leaving many men frustrated and dejected. Gynecomastia leaves men feeling insecure about their bodies and may lead them to feel reluctant in removing their shirts in public. With Dr. Shafer’s New York chest contouring treatments, the size of the breasts will be reduced and overall shape can be enhanced to appear more defined and muscular. Recovery takes a few weeks, but the results last a lifetime.

New York male cosmetic surgery patients can also opt for a non-surgical procedure, such as Botox. Dr. Shafer will evaluate the patient and determine which areas can benefit from Botox. He will then inject those areas, decreasing wrinkles and muscle activity. Results last around four months and are not permanent, so patients do not have to worry about making any lifelong changes to their facial appearance. For more permanent results to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, Dr. Shafer offers male facial fillers that can add volume to sagging skin and eliminate creases.
