As a practice performing nearly as much cosmetic surgery for men as for women, we think we know a thing or two about how guys view aesthetic opportunities. We’d like to say that many of our male patients visit us multiple times and often elect combination procedures—and indeed some do. We work with guys who, for example, have dropped dozens of pounds and need more than one body contouring procedure. And some see us more than once for rejuvenating cosmetic surgery as the years pass.
But let’s face it, many guys still don’t view themselves as cosmetic surgery patients, believing the role to be more suited to women and celebrities. Therefore, lots of our male patients duck in the door for a quick, discrete, targeted procedure. One-and-done.
Is this you? Here are some of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures for men in New York today. These are options that can give your confidence a big boost and perhaps accomplish a long desired goal.
By the time most patients consult us about gynecomastia surgery in New York, they have dreamed of a more masculine looking chest for years. As a pioneer in male breast reduction and with literally thousands of patients to our credit, we can offer a level of expertise that can’t be found elsewhere.
Gynecomastia surgery takes between one and two hours in our accredited outpatient surgery suite. Recovery involves mild to moderate discomfort for a few days, and several more days of rest. Most guys can return to light work within a week, and more strenuous activities as healing progresses. No more man boobs!
Rhinoplasty is one of the most popular one-and-done cosmetic surgery procedures for men, and for women too. Even people who don’t view themselves as likely to elect plastic surgery find it hard to ignore a bothersome feature when it’s front and center in the mirror.
When developing a nose job plan for male patients, we strive to balance facial features and create strong, straight noses. Patients usually experience very little discomfort following surgery, but bruising and swelling are normal. That said, most guys are already happier with their nose when we remove the post-op splint in just a few days.
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for men in New York. It’s also one of our favorite surgeries to perform, as it offers a big payoff in terms of rejuvenation. We perform eyelid surgery quite often, and we’re skilled in tightening up saggy upper lids and removing bags from the lower lids without giving men a look that’s too smooth and perhaps feminine.
The average blepharoplasty takes around 90 minutes and causes minimal post surgical discomfort. Light swelling and bruising take about a week to dissipate. If you want no one to be the wiser, you may delay going back to work for a few days longer. It’s likely that your colleagues will not know you had cosmetic surgery—they may just comment that you look rested and happy after your time off!
Of course there are many other options for cosmetic surgery for men in New York with us. If you elect to work with us for a one-and-done procedure, you may find yourself coming back. After discovering how gynecomastia surgery, rhinoplasty or eyelid surgery can improve your outlook, you may decide a little Botox to smooth wrinkles or liposuction to banish love handles is in order.
If you have often wished you could change something about yourself but have felt that cosmetic surgery may not be for you, we encourage you to come in for a consultation. We understand how to work with guys, and there’s never any obligation to move forward. We’ll spend time educating you and we’ll be honest about what you can expect. Then, the decisions are yours.
