Male cosmetic surgeries we offer
Gynaecomastia, also known as man boobs, is a common condition that produces prominent nipples and enlarged breasts in men and can lead to feelings of self-consciousness. It may be a hereditary condition or, caused by weight gain or loss, illness or drugs.
Gynaecomastia surgery, also known as male breast reduction, is performed under general anaesthetic and takes around 60 to 90 minutes. It removes excess fatty tissue from the male breast area to produce a manlier chest.
Expanded, split and general earlobe repair
Earrings can cause damage to your earlobes. Your earlobes may become expanded due to having flesh holes in your ears. They can become split by wearing heavy earrings or by an earring getting caught or yanked whilst playing a contact sport. More men are wearing earrings these days and some fashions can damage your earlobes. Whatever the injury to your ear we can perform surgery to repair your earlobe.
Depending upon the repair required surgery time usually takes between twenty and thirty minutes. Earlobe surgery is a relatively simple procedure performed under local anaesthetic. Your repair can be so effective that ear piercing of the repaired lobe is possible at a later date.
A rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, alters, resizes and reshapes your nose to produce your desired nose profile and may naturally enhance the look of your whole face. It’s a popular operation as the nose is a central feature of your face and can draw attention, leading to feelings of self-counsciousness if you’re not happy with it. You may feel your nose is too large, small, wide or overly bumpy either from injury or naturally. As well as cosmetically enhancing your nose a rhinoplasty can also improve breathing.
Rhinoplasty is an intricate facial cosmetic procedure that involves the refinement of different parts of your nasal architecture. It may include repositioning the bridge, removing bumps or, changing the tip of your nose and modifying your nostrils. It’s performed under general anaesthetic whereby bone or cartilage can be altered or removed or a skin graft may be used. Surgery normally takes up to three hours.
A blepharoplasty is eyelid and eye bag surgery that takes away fat deposits and excess skin or muscle from around your eyes to produce younger looking eyes and it can improve sight in some cases. Ageing, smoking and excessive weight loss can cause loose skin and puffiness around your eyes.
A lower blepharoplasty removes tired sagging eye bag skin underneath your eyes. An upper blepharoplasty removes drooping skin and wrinkles on your eyelid. This surgery takes around one or two hours to perform under general anaesthetic.
Eyelid surgery is becoming increasingly popular amongst men and we offer an altered procedure, whereby the brow positioning and initial eyelid incision is made lower than for women, to produce a more natural masculine look.
