Plastic Surgery Options for Men

November 21, 2019

While women undergo the majority of cosmetic surgery procedures each year, there are a significant number of men who also undergo surgery. According to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), there were 214,741 cosmetic surgeries performed on men in 2018.

Dr. Marcus H. Crawford offers men countless options for aesthetic enhancement. The team at our plastic surgery and cosmetic skin care center serving Atlanta and Marietta, GA would like to go over the most popular surgical treatment options for men below.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery

If you have a chest that is flabby and effeminate in appearance, it can make you feel extremely self-conscious about wearing certain clothing and taking your shirt off in public. To address this issue, many men undergo male breast reduction. This surgery removes fat and excess tissue to achieve a more masculine pectoral region.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)

After losing a lot of weight, it’s common to have a lot of loose skin around the lower abdomen. The only way to get rid of this excess skin is to undergo a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty). The surgery will allow surgeons to remove excess skin and revise the underlying structures of the abdomen, helping you achieve a slimmer overall body contour.

Arm Lift (Brachioplasty)

The shoulder and tricep area can both be seriously impacted by major weight loss. In addition to a tummy tuck, undergoing an arm lift (brachioplasty) is a good idea. This procedure removes loose skin along the underside of the arm, helping patients achieve a more chiseled and athletic appearance.


Many people have stubborn pockets of body fat that do not respond to a healthy diet and regular exercise. A great way to treat this is liposuction, a cosmetic fat removal procedure. Men can benefit from getting liposuction around the abdomen, the love handles, the flanks, the neck, the upper arms, and even the chin.

Nose Job (Rhinoplasty)

If you’ve suffered a broken nose or have issues with the prominence of your nose, you should really consider a nose job (rhinoplasty). This procedure can correct the nasal bridge, the tip of the nose, and the nostrils. Just a slight adjustment to the nose could improve the balance of your facial features.

Brow Lift

A few lines on the forehead may be a sign of wisdom and distinction, but too many can make you look old and even worried. Thankfully, a brow lift can help smooth away those unwanted lines on your forehead. It’s a great option for getting rid of major creases that affect your appearance.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Drooping upper eyelids and baggy lower eyelids will add years to your looks. By undergoing eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), men can look far younger and more refreshed. This surgery is especially ideal when the upper eyelid droops severely and obscures part of the vision.
