Plastic Surgery for Men in Kansas City
Over the past few years, more and more men have been pursuing plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments. In 2013, they accounted for more than 1 million cosmetic procedures, which is a shocking 273 percent increase from 1997. The fact is, plastic surgery is just as much for men as it is for women, but until recently, men have tended to shy away from getting any help to achieve their desired look.
Today, men are caring more about the way they look. They are wearing designer suits, paying more attention to their grooming, and there are even several successful lines of men’s skin care and beauty products. However, when it comes to getting the body they want, sometimes regular visits to the gym and a healthy diet aren’t enough. Aging also begins creeping in, causing faces to wrinkle and sag. Dr. Aylward and the Truman team believe that there is no reason men should feel unwelcome to pursuing cosmetic treatment to achieve the look they desire – they have just as much of a right to be comfortable and confident with their appearance.
The following procedures have been especially popular with men in Kansas City.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)
Gynecomastia is a medical condition in which a man has developed excess breast fat and tissue, resulting in breast enlargement and a feminine appearance of his chest. Most men who struggle with gynecomastia will simply attempt to hide their condition and disguise it under loose-fitting clothing. While exercise and weight lifting can often help with small improvements, full treatment of gynecomastia may require surgery.
Male breast reduction in Kansas City is a male-specific plastic surgery procedure the Truman team performs to reduce the size of a man’s breast and achieve a taut and masculine appearance. Using a combination of liposuction and excision as needed, your surgical team will work to flatten and tighten the look of your chest. Those who undergo male breast reduction in Kansas City experience significant improvements to their condition and feel more comfortable in (or out of) their shirts.
Male Facial Surgery
Facial plastic surgery continues to be a more popular option for men who are looking to maintain a youthful look – especially in the young and competitive business world. In 2013, eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty), nose surgery (rhinoplasty) and ear surgery (Otoplasty) were among the top five surgical procedures for men.
Our Truman surgery team knows that facial surgery is different for men than it is for women. Men who are seeking out facial plastic surgery want to improve the signs of aging while maintaining their masculine appearance. By treating each of her patients as unique individuals, paying attention to their specific needs and condition, Dr. Aylward and the Truman team are able to provide men with the results they desire with male facial plastic surgery.
Body Lift for Men
Men who have lost a large amount of weight often are left to deal with excess skin left behind. Although it is important to continue exercising regularly and eating healthy to maintain your figure, many times the skin will not go away without surgery.
We perform the body lift for men who are looking to get rid of the loose, hanging skin around the waist and lower body. The surgery consists of a circumferential incision around the body to remove a band of excess skin and restore the underlying muscles and tissue. Because it is a more invasive procedure, recovery will take some time, but the results can be life-changing.
Men who undergo a body lift are able to wear clothing that fits properly, exercise easier, and feel better overall for the hard work that they have done to lose the weight. This is their reward.
