Male Breast Surgery and Other Treatments to Give You a Strong, Masculine Appearance
Many patients do not realize that cosmetic surgery is equally beneficial for men and women. Bharat Shah, M.D., F.A.C.S., offers advanced procedures, specifically tailored for men. As a man, he understands your unique concerns, and he can create a precise treatment plan to give you the sculpted, masculine body that you desire. One of his particular specialties is male breast surgery, performed in his private Springfield, MO, operating facility. If you suffer from gynecomastia, this treatment can reduce unwanted breast tissue with lasting results. Other options include facial rejuvenation, additional body contouring procedures, and hair transplants. These various treatment options will not only improve your appearance. They could also give you a major boost of self-confidence.
Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia can cause you to develop excess tissue or fat deposits in the chest. Resulting “male breasts” can cause significant embarrassment. The condition is the result of hormonal changes, and it can affect young men undergoing puberty. Most frequently, however, men between the ages of 50 and 69 suffer from gynecomastia. If you have developed this condition, and diet and exercise have not produced the desired results, you may be a candidate for male breast reduction. In many cases, Dr. Shah can use minimally invasive liposuction to remove stubborn fat. In more severe cases, he may manually trim away unwanted skin and reduce the size of your areolas.
Dr. Shah specifically tailors his procedures for male facial anatomy. For instance, during a facelift, he can place the incisions in a way that will keep them hidden in your beard line.
Other Body Contouring
The breasts are the most common area for male plastic surgery. However, you could also benefit from one of our additional body contouring procedures. These treatments may especially be appropriate if you have lost a large amount of weight. Massive weight loss can result in stretched or damaged skin across much of your body. Dr. Shah offers many types of body contouring, including abdominoplasty, thigh lifts, and total body lifts. During these various surgeries, he will excise unwanted skin and lift the underlying muscles. Alternatively, he can perform liposuction alone or in conjunction with another treatment. We offer innovative SAFELipo®, which will have minimal impact on the nearby tissues.
Just as body contouring can have dramatic effects for your appearance, so facial rejuvenation can also help you to look years younger. Dr. Shah performs a complete array of facial plastic surgery. Procedures include facelifts, brow lifts, fat grafting, rhinoplasty, otoplasty, and more. These treatments can also improve your health. For example, rhinoplasty can reshape your nose and, at the same time, correct a deviated septum. Dr. Shah specifically tailors his procedures for male facial anatomy. For instance, during a facelift, he can place the incisions in a way that will keep them hidden in your beard line. Similarly, he may use a specialized mid-forehead crease incision during a brow lift.
Male-pattern baldness is one of the most common cosmetic problems for men. However, its regularity does not make it any less embarrassing. Dr. Shah offers effective hair loss treatments to restore your appearance and confidence. In almost all cases, he recommends the NeoGraft®, an innovative type of hair transplant. With a small, handheld device, he can easily remove donor hairs from the back of your scalp. Hair follicles there typically remain healthy and functional for life. Then he can graft on individual hairs. He will place thousands of new units in one virtually discomfort-free treatment session. He can also provide a laser cap, which will stimulate existing follicles to encourage a thick head of hair.
