There are many of the cosmetic surgery operations which offer a good result for the male patient, these include;
- Rhinoplasty (nose)
- Otoplasty (ears)
- Blepharoplasty (eyes)
- Abdominoplasty (tummy)
- Face Lift
Although many of these procedures are also all within the range of women’s cosmetic surgery, the body shape and skin is quite different on a male patient, therefore the surgeon’s skills need to be more flexible.
For example, a male patient having liposuction, will probably have chest and flanks in the body shaping techniques, and may even have a Medicare item number for part of the procedure.
The male face lift surgery requires specific placement of the incisions, to avoid them becoming visible or causing hair loss.
The skin of the nose may be much thicker than that of a female patient and require special treatment by the surgeon.
When performing a male abdominoplasty, it is usually not necessary to repair the abdominal muscle, whereas this is usually the case for the female patient.
An experienced patient advisor will be in a position to direct the patient to a surgeon with the necessary skills for the requested operation.
