Plastic Surgery For Men
In today’s competitive work force and media, more and more men are opting for cosmetic procedures to look more youthful. It is no longer taboo for men to care about their appearance. They know that looking athletic and attractive is as much an asset as intelligence, skill, and personality. Looking your best not only improves your self-esteem, but helps you compete in the youth-driven job market and culture.
The experienced plastic surgeons at Summit Health know that your results can make a positive difference in your life. They are experienced in plastic surgery for men and understand the inherent differences in performing these procedures on men as opposed to women. There is an art to performing plastic surgery on the male face and form to ensure that the results are appropriately masculine. Incisions need to be in different areas, for example, as men have less hair on their heads to cover scars. Likewise, gynecomastia surgery incisions must take into account that men do not wear bras that can hide scars.
If you are interested in more than one procedure, combining them is sometimes possible. When surgeries or non-surgical treatments can be done concurrently, the procedures are less costly, you have fewer incidents of anesthesia, and you reduce your time in recovery.
It is very important to men that no one be able to tell they have been to a plastic surgeon. At Summit Health, we are dedicated to providing natural-looking results. We prefer to remain in secret so that our patients can look their best.

Types of Plastic Surgery for Men
This procedure improves horizontal lines on the forehead and raises eyebrows that have begun to droop from the pull of gravity. Our expert surgeons provide a subtle but dramatic change that avoids the “surprised” look you may have seen on Hollywood actors. Read more about brow lift.
This surgery is frequently chosen by men. A weak chin can cause a man’s face to look out of proportion. A chin implant provides a stronger, more balanced profile. Read more about chin implant.
Prominent or misshapen ears can cause men and boys a great deal of embarrassment and ridicule. Whether your ears stick out or have an abnormal shape as a result of genetics or injury, our surgeons can reshape your ears and create a normal, symmetrical look. Read more about ear surgery.
Men often show their age in their eyes before anywhere else. If you have bags under your eyes or upper lids that sag and hang over your eyes, eyelid surgery could be the answer. Upper eyelid surgery can get rid of the overhanging lid, while lower eyelid surgery can reduce sagging or bags. Read more about eyelid surgery.
Face and neck lifts are no longer just for women. Sagging of the mid to lower face on men can cause them to look older, limiting opportunities in both business and social situations. Our expert surgeons reshape the under-structure of the face and neck so that the surgery lasts a long time and looks natural. We do not provide that “tight” look. Instead, you will look like you did a few years ago with naturally tighter cheeks, jowls, and/or neck. Read more about face and neck lift.
Many men are unhappy with the look of their nose or have suffered a broken nose, leaving a prominent bump. Nose surgery can reduce a bump, shorten a long nose, reduce large nostrils, straighten a crooked nose, or even make the nose larger in those cases where the man’s nose is too small for his face. We know that it is imperative to make the nose fit the individual’s face. It should be strong, masculine, and proportionate to his other features. Sometimes, nose reshaping and a chin implant are complementary procedures to provide the male patient with an overall stronger, more attractive profile. Read more about nose surgery.
These products are non-surgical injections that replace volume loss in the face and neck. Done correctly, no one can tell that you have had dermal fillers, but they can take years off your face and restore you to a younger look in a subtle way. At Summit Medical Group, all fillers are injected by our surgeons, who bring their intimate knowledge of facial anatomy to bear when determining the best injection sites for optimal results. Dermal fillers include Restylane, Radiesse, Sculptra, Juvederm, and Juvederm Voluma. The results are not permanent. Read more about dermal fillers.
Botox injections correct lines and wrinkles that are caused by muscle activity. These include frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, and smile lines. On men in particular, frown lines can create a constantly angry or tired look. Botox injections last 3 to 4 months and must be repeated 3 to 4 times per year. Read more about Botox.
A tummy tuck provides men with an opportunity to get rid of excess fat in the abdomen that refuses to reduce despite diet and exercise efforts. This is not a weight loss technique, but it is an appropriate procedure for men who are near their ideal weight but have extra bulk in the midsection of the body. Liposuction is often performed with a tummy tuck, excess skin can be removed if necessary, and the muscles of the abdomen are also tightened in some cases. Read more about tummy tuck.
This surgery uses a small incision and a tube called a cannula to vacuum out excess fatty tissue that has not responded to diet and exercise. In men, it is most often used for love handles, but it can be done in most any area where there are localized pockets of fat. Read more about liposuction.
After massive weight loss or bariatric surgery, there is usually a great deal of sagging, loose skin that needs to be removed in order to create a smooth and firm body contour. There are a number of procedures that take care of this excess skin wherever it appears. Read more about body contouring after massive weight loss.
This non-surgical procedure for hair removal is popular with men. The most common areas that men choose to have the procedure are the back, shoulders, neck, and chest.
