Long gone are the days when cosmetic surgery was thought to be primarily for women. Men in growing numbers have begun turning to cosmetic procedures as a means to regain the healthy, youthful, energized appearance they once enjoyed.
Not only does a rejuvenated look boost self esteem in social settings, in can also provide a much-needed edge in the world of business, something on which men everywhere tend to place a real premium.
To learn more about how Dr. Lofman can develop a treatment plan meant to turn back the clock, give you the confidence necessary to succeed and do so while also minimizing recovery time, we welcome you to schedule a consultation.
Gynecomastia, a condition marked by the development of breast tissue in males, can cause a great degree of embarrassment and discomfort for men afflicted by it. Breast development in men can be the result of genetic factors, and it has also been linked to the use of certain prescription medications. Fortunately, there is no reason for anyone to continue suffering from the unpleasant effects of gynecomastia.
Dr. Lofman offers several treatment options able to eliminate excessive tissue and fat while providing attractive contours to the body. Incisions, when necessary, are typically minimal in nature, and it is possible for patients to resume normal activity soon after their procedure.
Another popular male cosmetic surgery option is that of traditional liposuction. The fastest-growing cosmetic procedure for men, liposuction is a treatment meant to address pockets of fat that have proved to be stubborn and resistant to traditional adjustments in diet and exercise. It can also be an effective means for treating gynecomastia.
During a liposuction procedure, protruding deposits of fat are loosened, separated and removed from the body through the use of suction. This technique is ideal for targeting accumulations of fat in the midsection, thighs, buttocks and beneath the chin area.
When genetics and simple fluctuations in weight fail to show off the toned, flat abs they work so hard for in the gym, men are increasingly turning to the “male tummy tuck” or abdominoplasty as a way to achieve their dreams of having that visible six-pack.
This procedure works to eliminate excess amounts of fat and skin while also tightening abdominal muscles that have grown lax over time. The end result is a defined, contoured midsection patients of all ages covet.
Abdominoplasty is an option for men of a wide variety of body types, provided they are in good general health and are realistic about the limitations of the surgery. Results are noticeable immediately and will only improve in the weeks following the procedure. With proper maintenance through diet and exercise, it is possible for the effects of the male tummy tuck to last for years.
Whether due to lifestyle choices, sun exposure, gravity or the simple passage of time, all of us are vulnerable to the signs of facial aging. Men are no exception. The jawline tends to lose its chiseled edge to ever-increasing chin folds. Wrinkles often begin to develop around the eyes and mouth while skin slackening saps away the glow of youth. Fortunately, a facelift procedure, also known as rhytidectomy, can provide just the solution men throughout Michigan are seeking. Dr. Lofman possesses vast experience performing this procedure for both women and men, skillfully repositioning the skin, fat and muscle of the face to produce a firmer, smoother and tighter appearance. Though the recovery process for a full facelift is somewhat lengthier than for other male plastic surgery procedures, the impressive results make it worthwhile for many.
As the years go by, fat accumulation, loosening skin and muscle cording can cause a previously sharp, masculine jawline to transform into something far less desirable. In some cases, skin laxity and excessive fat in the neck area can be caused by genetic factors that affect even younger males. A neck lift procedure performed by Dr. Lofman can alleviate problems caused by sagging skin, eliminate unwanted fat deposits and restore the strong profile you have been missing. Less invasive and requiring a shorter recovery time than a full facelift, this procedure is often favored by men who are unable to set aside substantial downtime and must return to normal activities quickly.
