While the majority of people who opt for plastic surgery treatments in New York are women, the number of men who are seeking out cosmetic enhancements is growing. Men struggle with unwanted fat as much as women do, but there has always been a taboo about male plastic surgery that has prevented many men from getting the procedures they really want. While women may not usually care too much if they lose stubborn fat through diet, exercise or liposuction, men see things a little differently. Most men would like to say they spent hours at the gym to get the body of their dreams, but the reality of the matter is much different. Not everyone can get the rock solid abs they want or well defined calves by working out or eating a balanced diet. Some men work extremely hard, often to the point where they become fatigued, to try and achieve the physique they want, but it just doesn’t happen. Genetics plays a huge role in whether a man will be more likely than another to bulk up through weight lifting or lose unwanted fat through cardio. However, as the years have gone by, plastic surgery procedures for men have become increasingly popular.

At Dr. Shafer’s New York City plastic surgery office, men are given the opportunity to have their own cosmetic goals achieved through special procedures geared toward men really want. We know that men’s goals are very different than women’s, so we offer individualized treatments that cater to what men want to achieve cosmetically. At our office, we offer male chest contouring and reduction treatments, love handle reduction, neck contouring and liposuction procedures and even Botox and fillers. As the holidays quickly approach, men, just like women, want to look and feel their best, especially after the inevitable holiday weight gain. Our treatments range from non-invasive to minimally invasive to traditional surgical procedures, letting each patient take the lead on how much or how little aesthetic enhancement they want performed. Best of all, results look natural, with minimal bruising or scarring, so no one has to know you spent an hour at our office instead of a year at the gym.

Our special contouring treatments can give men the look of well-defined abdominal, pectoral or oblique muscles or, our New York cosmetic surgery patients can simply opt to have traditional liposuction on problem areas to eliminate stubborn fat in the love handles or “beer belly” area. Our male patients can also choose to undergo a more rejuvenating procedure, such as Botox, to give a more youthful appearance and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. Regardless of the treatment you would like, Dr. Shafer can make your cosmetic goals a reality.
