Plastic surgery for men is one of the fastest growing segments within plastic surgery. More and more men want to combat the signs of aging while maintaining their competitive edge. Our practice is experienced in the many surgical and non-surgical cosmetic options available for men. Though many procedures for men are similar to those performed on women, there are significant differences in technique that produce uniquely masculine results. Dr. Mark Pinsky, our West Palm Beach plastic surgeon, understands the subtle distinctions that result in handsome and natural-looking features while keeping in mind individual patient goals and time-frame.
At Pinsky Plastic Surgery, we recognize that an increasing number of men are interested in improving their looks to appear more fit, stress-free, and youthful. Our office has a significant male patient base and understands the unique needs of men, including privacy and downtime. Please contact us today to talk about non-surgical and surgical options to help you look as young and vital as you feel. Some of the most common procedures for men are detailed below.
Affecting males of all ages, gynecomastia can be the cause of severe embarrassment and self-consciousness, especially since men frequently expose the upper body in locker rooms, while playing sports, and at the pool or beach. Gynecomastia treatment, also called male breast reduction, is a procedure intended to reduce excess glandular tissue and/or fat in the chest and help create a flatter appearance.
A procedure to reduce excess fat, liposuction can be performed in the abdomen, back, neck, and virtually any other body area experiencing excess fat deposits. The procedure can be very helpful for addressing stubborn fat pockets that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Tummy Tuck – Abdominoplasty
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is common for men wanting to reduce their girth through the middle. The procedure can reduce sagging skin and excess fat and tighten loose muscles, restoring a firmer, flatter stomach. Many male patients are successful in defining muscles and strengthening their arms and legs but struggle with stubborn fat around the middle. For those men, an abdominoplasty can be the right solution.
Hair Loss Treatment/Hair Replacement
Thinning hair, a receding hairline, and balding areas of the scalp are some of the most common cosmetic concerns for men. A thick head of hair can convey youth, appeal, and vitality, where as hair loss and a receding hairline can signal advancing age and impact confidence. With the minimally invasive NeoGraft® procedure, *Dr. Pinsky can restore thicker, fuller hair by transplanting individual hair follicles for results that look exceptionally natural and continue to grow for many years to come.

Face Lift/Neck Lift
Both skin and muscle lose elasticity with age, leading to softening of the face and neck (jowls). A face lift, also known as a rhytidectomy, is designed to reduce sagging skin and tighten muscles to give a more youthful appearance. Scars can be hidden in natural creases, behind the hairline, as well as in or behind the ears. A neck lift also reduces excess skin fat deposits that can contribute to the appearance of a double chin or weak jawline. These procedures can create smoother skin and a more masculine profile.
Brow Lift/Forehead Lift
Unlike the procedure performed on women, a brow and forehead lift for men is not intended to raise the brows (a feminizing feature). In men, this procedure is designed to reduce the appearance of furrows or frown lines between the brows and smooth out creases along the forehead. Frown lines, deep furrows, and forehead creases all contribute to an older, stressed or angry appearance. Dr. Pinsky understands and utilizes techniques that produce a very natural-looking outcome that compliments male anatomy.
Being viewed as attractive has a close correlation to strong facial symmetry. So men who feel they have disproportionate noses, either too small, too large, or “crooked,” can greatly benefit from rhinoplasty, commonly called a nose job. Reshaping the nose to balance facial features can often provide subtle yet dramatic improvement to the entire face. This treatment can also correct functional problems, such as a deviated septum.
A strong jawline and well-defined profile is considered a distinctly male characteristic, but not every man is born with chiseled features. Some men find that age or health issues have softened their once strong chins and straight jawlines. Contouring the chin, cheekbones, and jawline is possible with facial implants, which are typically molded to suit the anatomic elements and individual goals of each patient. In addition, fat can be removed or added (fat grafting) to give a smooth, strong youthful look.
Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation
There are numerous non-surgical rejuvenation treatments that are designed to contour and refresh facial features, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and laser skin resurfacing. Utilizing techniques exclusive to men, our aesthetics team can often diminish signs of aging, add volume, reduce pigmentation, and define softened features for a masculine appeal that is distinctive from our treatments for women. Those less experienced in treating men may not realize that certain fillers are more effective for men. Products are often used in combination to achieve the “full correction.” This can be done over a series of visits if patients want subtle results, or more rapidly for those wanting to minimize office visits and achieve a more immediate, dramatic result. Dr. Pinsky has extensive experience modifying cosmetic procedures to suit individual goals, providing a customized result for every patient.
