Most Common Reasons Men Seek a Specialist Plastic Surgeon for Plastic Surgery

1. Male Breast Reduction Surgery (Gynecomastia or Gynaecomastia)

Some men may wish to reshape their chest area. However, weight changes, obesity, hormonal changes, and andropause may affect chest appearance.

If you have a protruding upper chest area and want to get a flatter chest, the surgery you’ll be looking for is Male Breast Reduction for Gynaecomastia/Gynecomastia).

Male breast reduction procedures often involves liposuction as well as redundant skin removal (skin excisions). There may be a scar if excess skin is removed, but you can ask about our Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) and other scar minimisation strategies when you come in for your confidential consultation with a Specialist Plastic Surgeon,

You may need to wait several weeks after Surgery before resuming some of your normal activities such as heavy lifting or weight training.

Ask us for more information by scheduling a confidential consultation (send an Enquiry form below or phone us during Clinic hours on (03) 8849 1444.

2. Rhinoplasty (Nose reshaping or repair of a Deviated Septum)

Changing the Shape of Your Nose with Plastic Surgery

Mens noses they tend to keep growing as you get older. Even if they don’t continue to expand, it’s often the loss of volume in the face that makes them look larger over time. There are several options for reducing the visual size of your nose, including:

If you’re someone who has never liked the shape, size or position of your nose or nostrils, there are many new surgical options available to reshape the nose.

You can have Rhinoplasty surgery.

For some smaller nose changes, however, cosmetic injectables might be able to change the appearance of your nose.

A Specialist Plastic Surgeon can help you to assess whether a Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping) surgery is a suitable option, or if you’re a candidate for an Injectables approach to nose reshaping, using dermal filler. If you’ve had a prior nose job that you didn’t like the results of, you can also ask your surgeon’s opinion on a Revisional Rhinoplasty procedure.

Plastic Surgeons work closely with the Coco Ruby Injecting team and Dermal Clinicians. Phone us for more information on (03) 8849 1444 or send an enquiry form today.

3. Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

Eyelid lifts are one of the procedures men choose to reduce the signs of ageing. An eyelid lift procedure can help remove excess eyelid skin – or for a lower blepharoplasty, it can reduce the appearance of loose skin beneath your lower eyelids.

If you’re starting to think your eyelids are ageing your face, prematurely, you can schedule a confidential consultation with a plastic Surgeon for an eyelid lift.

4. Facelift Surgery (Facial, Eyelid and Neck Lift Surgery for Men)

5. Liposuction, Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty) Surgery and Body Procedures (Skin Tightening and Fat Removal including after Bariatric Surgery or other Significant Weight Loss)

Many men have excess fat or skin around the abdomen area. Other men are concerned about skin folds that hang over the lower hips or pubis area, especially as occurs after massive weight loss.

Surgery procedures to reduce redundant skin and remove excess body fat deposits from the front torso area, hips, thighs or buttocks areas are called “body surgeries” or “body lift” procedures. They are increasingly common options for men who want to alter body shape after significant weight changes or bariatric procedures such as gastric sleeve surgery or gastric band surgery.

6. Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) Surgery for Men including Belt Lipectomy (Circumferential Abdominoplasty)

There are many different types of body procedures or body lift surgeries. These include a Circumferential Abdominoplasty (Belt Lipectomy) or a more traditional Tummy Tuck (abdominoplasty), Lower Body Lift, Thigh Lift, Upper Body Lift, or Male Breast Reduction surgery (Gynaecomastia).

If you have redundant skin or stubborn fat stores in your torso area, or along the hips, thighs, back or chest area, contact our Patient Care team to arrange a confidential consultation with our plastic surgeons.

Injectables can relax muscles that cause deep wrinkles. Microdermabrasion or IPL and laser treatments can remove some wrinkles while stimulating collagen formation to firm up the texture of your skin.

The skin care team at Coco Ruby also offers different types of laser techniques.
