Male Breast Reduction
Enlarged male breasts, also known as gynecomastia, can lead to a loss in self-esteem for many men. Male breast reduction is a cosmetic surgical procedure where extra glandular tissue is removed to give men a flat, firm, and tightly contoured chest.
Male breast reduction is carried out by Dr. Weinrach on an outpatient basis, usually under general anesthesia. The doctor can remove firmer tissue after incisions are made into the skin and use liposuction to remove a softer, more fatty type of tissue. Dr. Weinrach is careful to make all incisions as small as possible to ensure the healing process produces small, barely-visible scars.
After the procedure, patients wear a pressure garment to facilitate the healing process. This is usually for two weeks and then at night only for another two weeks.
Male liposuction is a common cosmetic procedure that removes stubborn fat and skin deposits from areas of the body that do not readily respond to diet and exercise.
Most men are interested in liposuction to target the abdomen, the breast area, and along the chin and neck. When sculpted with liposuction, these areas achieve a body shape that is trim and looks athletic.
During liposuction, Dr. Weinrach will use a cannula to suction fat from the body. The tumescent technique involves the use of a sterile saline solution containing local anesthetic and epinephrine to minimize bleeding. Some areas of the body such as the chest and flanks that contain particularly tough tissue respond very well to ultrasound assisted liposuction. One common brand of ultrasound-assisted liposuction that Dr. Weinrach uses is VASER. The ultrasound energy liquefies the fat which is then easily suctioned and removed from the body. The heat generated from the ultrasound also helps with the contraction of the extra skin, giving even better contour to the body.
Liposuction for men is usually a very effective procedure that gives long-lasting results. Men who have hanging skin around the abdomen sometimes choose to undergo a male tummy tuck in addition to liposuction to tighten muscles and trim down the waistline.
Dr. Weinrach works closely with all patients to explain the liposuction process and is happy to recommend other procedures that might be effective in conjunction with liposuction.
Botox® /Dysport® /Xeomin®
Botox® has long been a popular cosmetic treatment for women, but its use among men is on the rise as a tool to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles near the eyes and mouth. After being injected into the face, Botox® helps keep the muscles from contracting. This procedure stops wrinkles and fine lines from forming and “calms down” existing signs of aging that are already present on the face.
Botox® should only be injected by an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Weinrach. He personally administers Botox® to patients to make sure the treatment is effective and safe. Carried out as an outpatient procedure, Botox® usually lasts about six months. Due to the ease and convenience of injections, many patients return to our office for additional procedures.
Dermal fillers like Restylane® and Juvéderm® are effective and safe solutions to correct wrinkles and lines for the long-term. Patients see results immediately. The fillers themselves are extremely safe as they are a naturally-occurring substance in the body (hyaluronic acid).
Many men have become interested in dermal fillers. A growing number of younger men have been receiving soft tissue fillers in order to give the skin volume and tone before they get older.
As a double-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Weinrach is familiar with the subtleties of injecting a wide variety of dermal fillers. Other practices task a nurse or other practitioner with carrying out the injections. Dr. Weinrach’s precision method ensures the best results. Dermal fillers can last up to two years and are easily injected in our office so you can get back on your feet quickly.
A male facelift can give men a more youthful and energetic appearance while maintaining and enhancing a masculine and rugged aesthetic. Male facelifts are effective at firming up sagging skin and lightening up a sallow appearance.
Since a man’s face is far different than a women’s, a plastic surgeon should have a deep understanding of male aesthetic features. Dr. Weinrach’s years of experience performing facelifts gives him the expertise needed to ensure a facelift that accentuates masculine features.
