Just like women, more and more men are seeking cosmetic surgery. It can be surgery or aesthetic treatment.
Interventions for men can concern the silhouette, with for example abdominoplasty (or tummy tuck) with liposuction of the abdomen or love handles. But also the treatment of the sequelae of massive weight loss following obesity called "post bariatric". Male patients can also be treated for having enlarged breasts (gynecomastia).
Men also seek facial surgery: cervico-facial face lift (or re-tensioning of the skin and redistribution of facial volumes, e.g. cheekbone lift), fat injections to restore the natural volumes of the face (lipostructure and lipofilling), cosmetic surgery of the eyelids, liposuction of the neck, rhinoplasty, or even profile correction or profiloplasty with a chin implant.
The consequences of obesity affect 30% of the population, including 15% of children and adolescents.
The operations are performed AFTER a more or less important weight loss AND when the weight is stabilized. The goal of these interventions is to improve the silhouette BUT NOT to lose weight.

There are three types of facelift for men:
Unlike women's facial skin, men's is thicker and its sagging is later but more significantly than women's (turkey neck). It is common to see that male face tissues sag more and have more skin excess. This is why a male facelift is an effective solution. The incisions will be adapted to the hairline
Blepharoplasty is a very popular procedure in aesthetic surgery of the face and it is also sometimes reconstructive. It can be performed on both men and women. It concerns the upper and/or lower eyelids. This eyelid surgery allows for the improvement of the look of the eyes, which, with the sagging of the skin, gives a sad and tired look to the face. Fatty bags of the lower eyelids in men are often very marked. It is a meticulous surgery due to the fact that the eyelid is always overstretched in addition to the sagging skin. The round eye is more frequent in men.
Facial masculinization for men is a frequent request at Dr. Bergeret Galley's aesthetic surgery practice in Paris. Indeed, many men want to appear more virile and masculine, especially those with long and very thin faces.
