Women aren’t the only ones who seek elective cosmetic procedures. Recently, the number of male patients opting to undergo both facial and body cosmetic surgery in order to restore their appearance has substantially increased. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the top five male cosmetic procedures performed in 2012 were nose reshaping, eyelid surgery, liposuction, breast reduction, and facelifts. Double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman has maintained a thorough knowledge and expertise in utilizing various specialized techniques to produce the most natural-looking results specifically tailored to the male physique.
For men looking to change the appearance of their nose, Dr. Whiteman performs male rhinoplasty, which unlike a female’s nose surgery, requires tailoring the placement and size of the incisions in order to define distinct male characteristics. Typically, male patients seek a more defined nose with a higher bridge while women elect for more subtle results. For other facial procedures such as eyelid surgery and facelifts, Dr. Whiteman integrates the same personalized techniques to enhance dynamic facial features that most men possess.
Though many men typically lead a very active lifestyle in which they’re consistently burning calories, they also have those few “problem areas” that they would like to address as well. To help patients get rid of excess weight that diet and exercise can’t control, Dr. Whiteman performs multiple body contouring procedures including male tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast reduction. For men who suffer from gynecomastia, which is when breast glands rapidly grow to an unusual size, causing overly large breasts, Dr. Whiteman removes excess fat, tissue, and skin and then uses liposuction to produce a flatter chest.
No matter what gender you are, Dr. Whiteman strives to produce the most optimal results as well as meet each patient’s personal needs and goals.
