Male Plastic Surgery Procedures By Brian Kobienia, MD, FACS on May 29, 2012

Even though plastic surgery is often associated with women, many men are undergoing surgery as well in order to fight signs of aging and look their best. When you come to our Minneapolis plastic surgery center, we will be more than happy to answer all of your questions about plastic surgery and how your aesthetic goals can be addressed.

Why Men are Undergoing Surgery

Looking young and energetic and in great shape holds a number of advantages. For one, there is the issue of self-esteem. If you feel good about yourself, great things are possible. In addition, looking your best helps you make good first impressions and remain competitive, which can mean a lot in your personal life as well as your professional life.

Those are just a few reasons that men have visited our plastic surgery center serving Minneapolis, though there are many other valid reasons as well. Let's look at some of the most common surgeries that men ask about.

Facelift and Other Facial Rejuvenation Surgeries

Wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin can all have a major impact on your appearance. For that reason, many men are looking into facelift surgery and other options for facial rejuvenation. This includes surgeries that address crow's feet, jowls, a sagging or flabby neckline, furrows on the forehead, and even issues with the upper and lower eyelids.

Rhinoplasty (Nose Job)

Since the nose is such a prominent facial feature, it should come as no surprise that men ask a lot about Minneapolis rhinoplasty. The surgery can help adjust the size, shape, and prominence of the nose. It can also be performed as a reconstructive surgery to address injuries or as a medical procedure to help correct the internal structures of the nasal passages.


You can diet and exercise and try too stay fit as best as you can, but sometimes you will be left with problematic pockets of fat that will not go away. A great way to remove these little bits of fat is liposuction. This aesthetic fat reduction surgery can be used anywhere there is unwanted fat.

Tummy Tuck Surgery

When you lose a lot of weight, you are bound to face a number of serious body contouring issues, especially in the lower abdominal area. To help remove that excess skin in the lower abdomen, there is tummy tuck surgery. Different degrees of tummy tuck surgery can be performed in order to address varying body sculpting needs.

Male Breast Reduction

Sometimes men have chests that are flabby and look effeminate. This is a condition known as gynecomastia. If you suffer from gynecomastia, male breast reduction surgery will be able to reshape your pectoral region so it looks more appealing and masculine.

Many More Options for Aesthetic Enhancement

The above is just a sampling of your surgical options. There are plenty of other aesthetic treatments to consider, both surgical and non-surgical. We will be more than happy to discuss your aesthetic goals and how they can be met when you visit our practice.
