Procedures for Men

Plastic surgery helps give men the firmer bodies they want and restores a younger appearance. Dr. Cohen specializes in treatments specifically tailored to men’s goals, such as trim waistlines and sculpted chests. Personalized plans are developed based on body type and goals can include treatments like liposuction, tummy tucks, breast reductions, face and eyelid lifts, and facial rejuvenation.

Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia is a condition of enlarged or overdeveloped breasts in men. It can occur at any age and for various reasons. It can interfere with physical activities, as men with the condition can be normally self-conscious about it. Dr. Cohen uses a combination of liposuction and excision procedures to remove excess tissue and skin, which creates a firmer, more masculine chest. Sometimes, the nipple needs to be repositioned to ensure a natural result.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. After surgery, strenuous exercise should be avoided for two weeks. Depending on the nature of your work and the extent of your surgery, your time away from work will be between one to four weeks. You will need to wear a compression vest for support to minimize swelling and support the new chest contour. This might need to be worn for approximately six weeks to achieve best results.

Liposuction For Men

As men age, fat tends to accumulate in areas like the chin and neck, chest (gynecomastia), and around the abdomen and flanks (love handles). These areas don’t always respond to diet and exercise alone, making liposuction a popular choice for men with stubborn fat. Men retain their skin elasticity longer than women do, and the areas of fat beneath the skin tend to be firmer and more vascular than those in women. Because of this, liposuction for men is very effective.

To perform this procedure, Dr. Cohen makes a small incision in the treatment area, where a small tube is inserted to remove the extra fat. This is normally done under general anesthesia. Recovery time is minimal and most people are able to return to their normal exercise and work routine within one to two weeks. After liposuction, it is necessary to wear a compression garment for up to six weeks to get the best results.

Minimally Invasive Procedures For Men

Minimally invasive procedures will update your appearance without the time commitment of major surgery. Dr. Cohen performs a variety of procedures to give you the results you want with less downtime.

Botox and fillers like Juvederm and Voluma can reduce crow’s feet, frown lines, wrinkles, and laugh lines and restore volume in the face and neck. These procedures reduce the signs of stress and aging on the face.

Dr. Cohen is certified to treat patients with Kybella for reduction of submental fullness, known as a double chin. This highly effective, FDA approved treatment, is an injection under the chin area which dissolves the fat cells causing the double chin and restores a more youthful, trim shape to the face and neck. For maximum benefit, several treatments may be needed.

Lasers can tighten the skin and improve skin’s texture as well as reduce scarring, minimize lines and wrinkles, treat acne and rosacea, improve uneven pigmentation. Dr. Cohen has the most advanced laser treatments in the Richmond area which can be customized to each patient’s specific needs. With CO2RE, sublative, intense pulsed light (IPL) and MedLite C6 lasers available, you get precise and noticeable results in less time.
