Common Types of Plastic Surgery for Men

Every day more men are turning to plastic surgery to help regain confidence, reshape their bodies, and reform their physiques to better match their lifestyles and goals. For many years, plastic surgery seemed like a women’s matter, but it turns out that caring about your appearance isn’t only a woman’s concern. Men have specific issues they’re concerned about regarding their bodies , and  they’re finding ways to improve these areas with surgical and non-surgical treatments. Examples of this can be seen below as the top surgical and non-surgical treatments for men offered at Imagos Plastic Surgery in Miami, FL.

1. Liposuction

Liposuction is one of the most popular procedures in plastic surgery because of its ability to shape most areas that are holding onto stubborn, unwanted fat. Liposuction can help slim the neck, the abdomen, back, arms, thighs, love handles and other problematic areas of the body diet and exercise can’t correct.

Dr. Perez-Gurri and Dr. Garcia perform surgery with various techniques that allow patients to experience minimal scarring and downtime after surgery. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within a few days.

2. Blepharoplasty

You can rejuvenate and brighten your eyes by removing excess skin , fat and fluid with an eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty.

You’ll look refreshed,  and with the  removal of excess skin from hooding eyes, visibility is improved for performance of everyday tasks with greater ease.
