What Plastic Surgery Options Are Available for Men?

2 Min Read

Although the plastic surgery arena mainly consists of women, there has been a growing number of male plastic surgeries being performed each year. 

While the most common procedure for women is breast augmentation, there are quite a few options for men to achieve their ideal body or facial structure.

Man before and after Gynecomastia surgery in Fullerton, CA.We have created a list below of some options for men seeking to enhance their facial features or body contours to align with their cosmetic goals.

What Are the Benefits of Male Plastic Surgery?

  • A heightened sense of male identity or masculinity
  • Balanced facial features
  • Improved figure and comfort with your body
  • Increased confidence
  • More clothing options

Calf Implants

When the legs appear small or weak, calf implants can create a fuller, more defined muscular leg appearance.

Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can address upper and lower eyelid sagging, loose skin, and fat deposits around the eyes. This procedure can relieve drooping eyelid skin and puffiness.


Facial hair plays an essential role in a man’s facial appearance. Dr. Wald considers your facial hair when discussing facelift surgery.

Only a skilled, experienced surgeon with knowledge of male facial anatomy should perform a facelift. 

When necessary, a neck lift is combined with facelift surgery to also address concerns in the neck (excess fat or loose neck bands).


Minimally-invasive treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic can temporarily relax facial muscles for smooth, youthful skin.


Addressing excess body fat can be a tricky issue; changing your diet and increasing your exercise may not abolish fat deposits.

Liposuction is a surgical procedure to reduce fatty tissue from various targeted regions of the body. 

The most common areas selected by men include the arms back, chin, flanks, neck, and stomach.

In some instances of gynecomastia, enlarged male breasts, liposuction can be used to eliminate extra breast fat. 

The liposuction process allows for a more masculine, defined chest.

Abdominal Etching

Using a strategic liposuction technique, abdominal etching can create a robust and muscular appearance on the stomach.

Pectoral Implants

For men who feel that their chest is flat, pectoral implants can enhance the size and appearance of the pectoral muscles.


Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, can reduce a large or long nose while maintaining a masculine, strong nasal shape. 

Tummy Tuck

Significant weight loss can leave loose, sagging skin on your abdominal region.

Tummy tuck surgery is designed to remove this excess residual skin, tighten the abdominal muscles, and pull the remaining skin taut for a chiseled stomach appearance.
