Procedures For Men

Cosmetic surgery was always considered a bit taboo for men, but recent developments have reassured more and more men to take the plunge. Men definitely don’t want to be left behind when it comes to turning back the clock be it their face or sculpting their six packs. Each year the number of men undergoing procedures for the face & body is steadily going up at CCRS and we are not surprised.

  • Male breast reduction

Having woman like breasts, known as gynecomastia, is a condition affecting almost 40% to 60% of all men, however it is rarely discussed. Male Breast Reduction is a common concern to men of all ages. It is the development of large breasts that take on the appearance of a female breast. Men with gynecomastia are often too embarrassed to take their shirts off at the beach, as they are self-conscious. This often runs in families and is occasionally caused by hormones but in most cases it happens for no reason. Male breast reduction is a procedure which helps to address the condition. VASER Hi Def can be done to sculpt the chest & enhance the pectorals.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The procedure is done under local anaesthesia with sedation or GA as a daycare procedure.

  • Procedure

If the Gynecomastia consists primarily of excessive fatty tissue, VASER liposelection is used to remove the excess fat through small incision 3 – 4mm. If excess glandular tissue is the primary cause of gynecomastia, it needs to be excised in conjunction with VASER. In extreme cases, excess skin may have to be removed too along with fibroglandular tissue.

  • Post-op Recovery

Whether you’ve had excision or VASER, you will feel some discomfort for a few days after surgery which can be controlled with medications. Swelling & bruising will persist for a while. Dr. Sameer will advise you to wear an elastic pressure garment continuously for a 3 weeks 24×7. You can return to work as early as a 2-3 days post op.

  • Brand New You !

The biggest advantage of a male breast reduction procedure is that it addresses the psychological issues along with the cosmetic ones. Boosting your self-esteem can make you happier and more outgoing, affecting other areas of your life. Male breast reduction may be discouraged if you are obese, or if you are overweight and have not first attempted to lose the fat around the breast area with an exercise or weight loss program.

  • Vaser Hi Def

VASER Hi Def is a pioneering body contouring treatment to sculpt and define muscle groups through VASER Lipo. It can be performed on any part of the body, including stubborn fatty and problem areas

Despite being the most requested procedure by men, patient selection is crucial. Dr.Sameer believes results are optimal in patients with good elastic skin & muscle tone, a healthy diet / exercise regime in place and as near their ideal weight as possible. In men, it can trim down love handles, define your six-pack or sculpt a muscular chest.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The procedure is done under GA as a daycare procedure and an overnight stay is usually advisable.

  • Procedure

VASER Hi Def is very similar to Vaser Liposuction. The selected area to be reshaped is tumesced with fluid which makes it easier for the fatty tissue to be broken up by the ultrasound energy. A small probe is inserted into the selected area and ultrasound energy is to break up fatty tissue while preserving other tissue. It involves a combination of superficial & deep VASER lipo to etch out the muscle outlines & provide high definition body sculpting results.

  • Post-op Recovery

The areas treated will swell and it may take up to 3-6 months to see the final result. You will feel some discomfort for a few days after surgery which can be controlled with medications. Swelling & bruising will persist for a while. You need to wear an elastic pressure garment continuously for a 4 weeks 24×7. Its ideal to plan your trip back home after 7-10 days following the procedure.

  • Brand New You !

This advanced fat removal procedure can give you an athletic & sculpted look helping you to address fat which no amount of strict diet and exercise regimes can shift

  • Male Tummy Tuck

Tummy tuck surgery is actually quite common among men as well. For men, a male tummy tuck would be needed to correct loose skin and remove stretch marks that may appear with aging alone or because of weight loss. Since liposuction and muscle tightening is often performed at the same time, a male tummy tuck can allow the six pack muscles to show more, giving the entire abdomen and waist a more masculine, chiseled look.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The procedure is done under GA and an overnight stay is advisable. In some case it might be advisable to put in drains intra op which we remove after 3-4 days.

  • Procedure

A full tummy tuck involves a horizontal incision that’s placed low in the bikini line just above the pubic bone. Another incision is made around the navel to excise the loose skin paddle. Because the incision length is in part determined by the level of correction needed, the size of the incision may vary from patient to patient. VASER lipo of the flanks and back is done along with the abdominoplasty for more complete body contouring & definition.

  • Post-op Recovery

Immediately following your surgery, you may find it difficult to stand fully upright for a while. You might have bruising and swelling, which will improve over time. You have to wear a compression garment after your tummy tuck to support your abdomen and promote healing for 4 weeks. You are also recommended to abstain from vigorous activities or exercises that may prolong the healing process.

  • Brand New You !

Once you have fully healed, you should notice a firmer, contoured midsection with better-defined abdominals. A tummy tuck when paired with liposuction can reduce excess tissue around your abdomen and restore a trimmer waistline, along with creating more masculine muscle definition.

  • Follicular Unit Hair Transplant

There are many reasons for hair loss, but 95% of all cases in men are due to a condition called “androgenetic alopecia.” This is commonly referred to as “male pattern baldness.” Follicular Unit Grafting is a state of the art procedure yielding the natural results. It is considered to be the gold standard in Hair Restoration.

A hair transplant involves transferring hair from the back and side of the head (the “donor area”) to those areas undergoing hair loss or thinning. The hair from the donor area are genetically programmed to be permanent. A follicular unit is the naturally occurring group of 1 – 3, occasionally 4 hairs. As many as 2500-3000 grafts = 5000-6000 hair can be transplanted in a single procedure lasting 6 – 10 hours.

Once transplanted, these hair will continue to grow for a lifetime, they can be groomed, shampooed and require haircuts like normal hair.

  • Anaesthesia & Stay

The procedure is performed as a day care procedure under local anaesthesia. A mild sedative may be administered to make you feel more relaxed and comfortable.

  • Procedure

A narrow single strip of scalp (1-1.5cms wide & 15 – 20 cms long) is harvested from the back of the scalp. The donor area is closed primarily leaving no residual bald area.The follicular units are cut from the donor tissue under total microscopic control into single, double or triple hair follicular units (therefore 2000 grafts is approx.4000 hair). The grafts can be inserted into tiny needle-sized sites in the recipient area.

A combination of these different sized grafts is used in the Hair Restoration, with the one- hair grafts in an irregular pattern along the hairline, and the two-, three- and four-hair grafts placed further behind to create more density

  • Post-op Recovery

As with any surgical procedure, you will likely experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the upper portion of your face and around your eyes, which can be alleviated with cold compresses, pain medication & massage.

Any stitches or sutures may remain in place for approximately 10-14 days. While you will feel well enough to return to work in approximately 2-3 days, the swelling and bruising make take a few weeks to completely subside.

  • Brand New You !

By transplanting follicular units, the way hair grows naturally, the results of the hair transplantation are virtually undetectable.

  • Facial Rejuvenation

More & more men are pursuing facial cosmetic surgery in an effort to bring their best to the table at the office and after hours. Here are some of the top cosmetic procedures that we regularly perform for our male patients.

  • Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty is a popular procedure amogst men. Loose hanging skin, lateral brows that hang over the upper eyelids, and bulging fat pads below the eyelids with bulging tear troughs put forth the image of fatigue, loss of vitality and make them look tired. The surgery restores the appearance of the upper eyelids with correction of any eyelid droop. The lower lids can be rejuvenated by removing excess fat and repositioning this tissue over the cheek to eliminate the tear trough.

  • Facelifts

In men the problems of an ageing face can be the same; sagging facial skin,a loose neck, jowls with loss of definition of the jaw line.Some look heavier in the face despite not gaining weight. A SMAS Facelift addresses these areas rejuvenating the face, tightening the neck & defining the jawline.

  • Rhinoplasty

While some men opt for a aesthetic rhinoplasty hoping to correct changes brought about by the aging, some men opt for it as they have been unhappy with the facial balance and symmetry for many years. Because of the central positioning of the nose, achieving ideal proportion is paramount & a rhinoplasty or nose surgery can help men achieve the facial aesthetic they have longed for. The key is to provide shape without feminizing the male nose. Recovery is relatively easy and the patient can return to work within a week usually.

  • Chin Augmentation

If the lower jaw projection is limited by lack of growth, it can portray a weaker jaw with less of a masculine appearance. A chin implant can provide an enhanced projection with the combination of either an implant or along with liposuction of the jaw line to create a sculpted jaw which projects strength.
