Cosmetic Surgery for Men in Fort Worth
In 2011, over 1.3 million men chose to have surgical and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). This is on the rise since 2010. Men cite many reasons for seeking touchups, such as remaining competitive in the workplace and simple mid-life tune-ups. The procedures below are listed in the rank order of national popularity among men, based on ASPS 2011 statistics.
Liposuction, also referred to as liposculpture, is a procedure that instantly reduces the number of fat cells in your body. This is one of the most popular procedures requested among men in Fort Worth, Texas. With liposuction, you can elect to target a specific area or a combination of areas, depending on the plan you and Dr. Kirby create. Some men are good candidates for abdominal sculpting as part of the liposuction process. Consult with Dr. Kirby to see how liposuction, liposculpture and abdominal sculpting can benefit you.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is the correction of heavy, excess or stretched upper eyelid skin and displaced fat that may obstruct vision. This is the second most popular cosmetic surgical procedure among men after rhinoplasty. Following surgery there is a more youthful, rested look to the eyes. Blepharoplasty can be performed on both upper and/or lower eyelids at the same time.
Enlargement of the male breasts, or gynecomastia, can be treated surgically. Gynecomastia is swelling due to a hormonal imbalance and can be present in one or both breasts. It can be caused by a variety of conditions and substances. Depending on the size and shape of the breast, liposuction or reduction surgery may be recommended.
