Male Plastic Surgery
Men are finally learning what women have always known—plastic surgery works! Whether you desire to achieve a fitter, more toned physique or you simply want to appear as lively and youthful as you feel, there are numerous male plastic surgery options that can help you attain your aesthetic goals with exceptionally natural-looking results.
Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Holzman, is greatly skilled in tailoring cosmetic treatments to meet the unique needs and preferences of males, always holding safety, privacy, and discretion in the highest regard. In fact, having quite a large male patient base, he is considered one of the top providers of plastic surgery for men in the Austin area.
To learn about your treatment options, we encourage you to browse the information provided below and/or contact our practice today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Holzman. He will gladly meet with you to determine the most effective, least invasive approach to attaining the look you desire.
Gynecomastia is an aesthetic condition characterized by enlarged male breasts. While diet and exercise can help diminish fat and tone musculature throughout the chest region, these efforts cannot effectively treat gynecomastia, as the true cause of the concern is excess glandular tissue. This can only be removed via surgical excision.
Fortunately, techniques for gynecomastia surgery have come a long way over the years, with current methods making it possible to achieve a more sculpted, masculine-appearing chest with minimal scarring or signs of treatment. Based on your unique needs and goals, Dr. Holzman can customize a surgical plan that yields optimal results, helping you to look and feel your very best.
Male Body Contouring
Over time, most males start to accumulate stubborn fat in various regions of the body—particularly in the midsection, flanks, chest, and beneath the chin. In spite of eating a healthy diet and committing to a regular exercise routine, these troublesome areas of fat can be resistant to change, even when success is visible elsewhere. Additionally, in the event a significant amount of weight was gained and then lost, some degree of excess, sagging skin can remain. This lax, redundant tissue is also immune to diet and exercise, despite even the most rigorous efforts.
The good news is, body contouring surgery can often achieve excellent results for males desiring a leaner, more sculpted physique. In cases of stubborn fat, liposuction can be utilized to eradicate excess fatty tissue from virtually part of the body, perfectly complementing—or even accentuating—one’s diet and exercise efforts. For those bothered by loose, hanging skin (with or without the presence of excess fat), techniques such as abdominoplasty, arm lift surgery, and thighplasty can be employed to remove extra skin and tighten the remaining tissue for a leaner, more toned appearance in the area(s) of concern. As an added benefit for those undergoing abdominoplasty, any muscles of the abdomen that were stretched—or perhaps even separated—due to excessive weight gain can be repaired for a flatter overall contour.
Facial Rejuvenation for Men
As we age, the cumulative effects of natural maturation, sun exposure, gravity, genetics, and various other lifestyle and environmental factors take their toll on our facial appearance. Some of the most common concerns experienced by men include a sagging brow, crow’s feet around the eyes, wrinkles and creases across the forehead, drooping eyelid skin, facial tissue laxity, and jowling. Not only can these aesthetic issues make males look much older than they actually are or feel, they can also lead to self-consciousness at work—particularly in professions that have a growing number of younger personnel.
For men seeking a rejuvenated facial appearance, Dr. Holzman offers many options that can reduce signs of aging with natural-looking results, helping turn back the clock several years with little to no indication of aesthetic treatment. Procedures such as brow lifting and facelift surgery (sometimes including a neck lift) can be great choices for treating lines, wrinkles, and loose skin/musculature in the forehead and mid-to-lower face, respectively. In addition, blepharoplasty can be an excellent option for removing excessive upper eyelid skin that hangs down over the eyes, and/or to eliminate fat and smooth crepey skin of the lower eyelids—both of which contribute to an aged appearance.
All facial rejuvenation surgeries can be performed alone or in combination with one another for a more comprehensive enhancement, and Dr. Holzman takes great care to ensure results never appear “overdone.”
Under-Chin & Jawline Contouring
One of the most common aesthetic concerns among men is submental fullness, an issue more commonly known as a double chin. Caused by an accumulation of excess fat, submental fullness can be incredibly difficult—if not impossible—to lose via diet and exercise alone, leaving many men with an under-defined chin and jawline despite achieving improved contours elsewhere on the body through these measures.
At our practice, Dr. Holzman offers KYBELLA® and chin liposuction for the treatment of submental fullness. KYBELLA® is an innovative injectable designed to non-surgically destroy fat cells beneath the chin and jawline, leading to their removal from the body through natural processes. Chin liposuction is a surgical technique that involves the strategic extraction of fat cells through tiny, well-concealed incisions. Both options can create a leaner, more defined under-chin and jawline contour for proper male candidates. If necessary, they can also be combined with neck lift surgery to eliminate any loose, excess skin that may be present in the area for an improved overall appearance.
Injectables & Fillers for Men
Surgery is not always necessary for men who are interested in achieving a rejuvenated facial aesthetic. Dr. Holzman offers several cosmetic injectables and dermal fillers designed to smooth wrinkles, restore lost volume, and even accentuate certain features—all without the need for incisions or an extended recovery period. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Jeuveau™, he can minimize lines and creases on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the corners of the eyes. Furthermore, he has a full range of JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® products at his disposal to fill in wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and midface, as well as add volume to the cheeks and/or other areas of the face that have sunken with time. Dr. Holzman is highly skilled in the administration of injectables for men, enabling him to effectively address specific concerns while maintaining his patients’ masculine appearance.
Skin Improvements for Men
Dr. Holzman treats a wide variety of skin irregularities for men, including scars, moles, cysts, skin cancer, and lipomas. These skin improvements can usually be conducted as simple outpatient procedures, allowing patients to resume their normal daily routines soon—if not immediately—after they leave our practice. Additionally, Dr. Holzman offers a carefully curated line of medical-grade skin care products that is specially formulated to help men maintain healthy, good-looking skin. He will gladly formulate a personalized regimen for anyone interested.
