Surgical facial procedures for men are becoming increasingly popular as the results obtained, when performed with precision, create subtle enhancements to match the masculine cosmetic and structural goals.
Rhinoplasty is an option for those who have any self-consciousness about their nose, whether it is the shape of the bridge, nasal tip, nostrils, or a combination of factors. Rhinoplasty can correct a misshapen or injured nose, or correct a deviated septum affecting breathing. The procedure itself can be performed in one of two ways, depending on the various structural and aesthetic problems that require surgical correction.
Depending upon the current shape, size, projection, or functional problems, Dr. Lee may perform the procedure from within the nasal cavity, in which case, there will be no visible scarring, called a “closed rhinoplasty,” or a small incision will be created at the base of the column between the nostrils (columella), or an “open rhinoplasty.”
This approach will leave a small scar, but it allows for greater control for surgical correction of nose tip, bridge, removing a hump on bridge, building up bridge, correcting overlarge nostrils, or other aesthetic issue. Rhinoplasty, when performed correctly and with advanced techniques, will create a masculine, balanced nose shape that will bring out the best in your other features.
Augmenting the chin structure can create a far more pleasing and masculine contour for the chin and jaw. If you feel that you would prefer a more prominent chin then through grafting or the use of silicone implants, this can be achieved in a manner that appears completely natural. Liposuction can also be performed to reduce a double chin, with the added benefit of causing your chin to appear more prominent. The approach that will best reflect your personal goals will be discussed with Dr. Lee to ensure that it is the most appropriate technique. Every chin is different and will require a custom implant.
A facelift is the most comprehensive approach to facial rejuvenation, with results that can last up to 15 years, or longer. A facelift smooths deep lines and wrinkles, taking years off your appearance. This procedure will lift the underlying musculature, rather than the older technique of simply removing skin which created a very unnatural look. Incisions are placed in the natural creases around the ears and within the hairline so that they will be almost invisible. Full facial rejuvenation may include a brow lift to soften the forehead creases and restore drooping eyebrows to a natural, youthful position.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is an opportunity to reduce the appearance of tired, puffy eyes and heavy eyelids. Eyelids that have developed excess skin or fat can not only give your face a tired appearance, but they can also cause eye strain or affect peripheral vision. Eyelid surgery for men helps to alleviate the appearance of drooping eyelids for a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. Both the upper and lower eyelids can be enhanced during surgery, or just one area, depending on your individual condition and what needs to be addressed. In many cases both are treated so that the final result is balanced.
Surgical procedures for the body can lead to enhanced self-esteem and a slimmed, more athletic, youthful physique. Men often have their chest and abdomen treated to create a more masculine chest and a trim and fit torso.
Gynecomastia treatment reduces the size of male breasts that develop due to genetics, hormones, and weight gain or aging. Men who opt to have gynecomastia treatment are often looking to:

The procedure can involve various techniques depending on the shape and size of the breasts and if any glandular tissue must be surgically removed. In some cases, only liposuction may be necessary, in other cases, the procedure may be combined with excision surgery and/or nipple re-shaping, to give the overall look of the chest a defined, masculine appearance.
Men who have gynecomastia or excess and stretched skin in the breast area after weight loss may also have large or stretched areola or enlarged nipples. Some men are genetically disposed to having larger nipples. Large nipples can be a source of embarrassment and nipple reduction can be performed to give them the confidence to go shirtless at the beach and feeling more confident in intimacy. The nipple and the areolae (colored area around the nipple) can be reduced surgically so the nipples appear a normal size and shape.
Removing stubborn fat from certain areas of your body may require more than consistent workouts. Often, having a healthy diet and a regular exercise routine are not enough to resolve some body areas where fat is lodged This is where liposuction can help you. Liposuction can target practically any area of the body such as:
These areas can have fat removed to create a more attractive body shape. Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure but can be a very powerful motivator to continue to eat a healthy diet and consistently exercise.
A tummy tuck can help you finally be free of an unsightly tummy bulge – a common area where fat collects in the male body. Some of our male patients have lost a significant amount of weight loss and are now left with excess hanging skin, along with stretched or herniated abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck can alleviate the condition of excess skin, a common source of embarrassment that can even make strenuous exercise difficult. This procedure can also tighten the underlying abdominal muscles and repair hernias in the abdomen. A tummy tuck can help you with issues that diet and exercise cannot resolve, and can leave you with a tighter, flatter, and more appealing abs – youthful and defined.
BOTOX injections are among the most popular non-surgical procedures performed today and is becoming increasingly popular among men. BOTOX smooths areas of the face that have developed fine lines, wrinkles, or heavier creases, around the eyes or forehead. BOTOX This multi-functional treatment inhibits the muscle action just below the surface of the skin which then prevents the area from wrinkling prematurely and smooths current dynamic wrinkle – those caused by constant expressions such as concentrating, focusing, or frowning.
Facial fillers can be used to increase the volume in areas of the face that have lost the look of youth, such as at temples, chin, or cheeks. Also, heavier creases such as those around the nose and mouth can be treated so that they are reduced in depth and size. Facial fillers can also be used as a non-surgical option for chin and jaw enhancement, although the results will not be as long lasting as those obtained through surgical means.
Kybella is an injectable solution that reduces fat, particularly under the chin. Treatments with Kybella can give you a more defined chin and jawline by simply reducing the fat cells that have lodged below the chin. This is a great option if you are seeking a non-surgical option for fat reduction below the chin.
