Male Procedures

Male plastic surgery procedures performed by Dr Jeremy Hunt

Dr Jeremy Hunt has operated on hundreds of men over his 20-year career as a specialist plastic surgeon.

Dr Hunt’s male patients most commonly approach him for male chest reductions to treat gynaecomastia, eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, abdominoplasty for the abdomen, liposuction, and chin surgery (genioplasty). The most common male plastic surgery procedure of all is rhinoplasty.

Dr Hunt’s Philosophy on Male Cosmetic Surgery  

Surgery for male patients is often different from surgery for female patients. This is due to the natural differences between male and female characteristics and desired outcomes. Men and women often have different goals for the appearance they want to achieve, and Dr Jeremy Hunt aims to adjust his approach accordingly. If the patient wishes for a subtle result, Dr Hunt will aim to cater to this when outlining the patient’s customised treatment plan.

Gynaecomastia Surgery for Men

There are a number of reasons why some men may develop an excess of fat tissue on the chest, known as gynaecomastia, whether genetics or other factors…

Male Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Male rhinoplasty is most often sought to reshape and restructure the nose to produce a certain aesthetic outcome.

Male Liposuction

Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, stubborn pockets of fat persist. In men, this tends to occur around the abdomen, flanks (hips), chest and chin.

Male Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty is a common facial procedure. It is common for the skin around the eyes to stretch over time, and surgery can reduce this appearance…

Male Neck Lift (Platysmaplasty)

A neck lift, also called platysmaplasty, can reduce skin laxity around the neck in order to address patient concerns about signs of ageing in this area.

Male Chin Surgery (Genioplasty)

Some men become concerned about the shape, size, or projection of their chin and jawline. Many men are opting for chin surgery, or genioplasty, to reshape their chin.


What are Male Procedures?

Plastic surgery offers options for women and men alike who are suitable candidates. And the number of men undergoing plastic surgery is rising each year.

The most commonly performed male procedures are liposuction, gynaecomastia, lower body lift (torsoplasty), and abdominoplasty. They also include face procedures such as facelift (rhytidectomy), neck lift (platysmaplasty), chin surgery (genioplasty), blepharoplasty, and others.

Gynaecomastia surgery is the procedure performed to eliminate excessive breast tissue in the male chest. Liposuction can be performed on different areas of the body, but chin, neck, and abdominal liposuction are probably the most sought-after procedures.


Why Patients Might Consider Plastic Surgery Male Procedures

There are many reasons why male patients undergo plastic surgery. Some common reasons include:

  • Reducing loose or excess skin after weight loss
  • Reducing skin irritation caused by excess skin
  • Treating conditions like gynaecomastia
  • Targeting signs of ageing
  • Removing unwanted fat deposits

Like each surgery is individualised, so are patient outcomes. No two surgeries are the same, and you should ensure you have a good idea of what your procedure entails before making your decision.

How are Male Procedures Performed?

If you are wondering how male procedures are performed, you should know that in most cases, the procedures follow the same operating techniques as in the case of women. Of course, there are slight differences, but not essential.

Even the procedure that is designed exclusively for men – gynaecomastia – is similar to breast reduction mammoplasty surgery in women. In men, the glandular tissue is not as prominent as in the case of women. However, a typical gynaecomastia surgery would involve incisions at the crease under the breasts, as well as the excision of the excess glandular tissue.

Most procedures are performed with the patient under general anaesthesia unless. In some cases, during the consultation with Dr Hunt, may be decided to go for local anaesthesia with sedation.

The duration of male procedures is dependent on the specific characteristics of each patient and the complexity of each case. While some procedures might take only 30 minutes to be performed, for others, Dr Hunt might need up to three hours or more. Keep in mind that combined procedures usually take longer.

Recovery after male plastic surgery

The recovery period after male plastic surgery is highly dependent on the complexity of the procedure performed. Expect a certain level of discomfort to occur during the first few days post-op.

It is best to avoid strenuous physical activities during the first week or two after a male plastic surgery and make sure to take time off from work to allow your body to heal. Here are more recommendations for the recovery period after plastic surgery:

  • Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for at least two weeks
  • Avoid steam rooms and saunas
  • Have a healthy and balanced diet
  • Keep your body hydrated

To avoid risks and complications that could occur during the recovery period make sure to follow Dr Hunt’s directions
