Top Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men
We offer safe, practical plastic surgery options for men that are customized to your needs. The most common male plastic surgery procedures we perform are:
Gynecomastia surgery, or male breast reduction, treats a disorder of the chest glands that results in swelling resembling breasts. The surgery implements two primary techniques to address this development: liposuction, which loosens and removes the fat deposits, and excision, which removes the excess skin and breast tissue.
Gynecomastia surgery restores a normal male appearance to the chest, reducing any self-consciousness caused by excess breast tissue and improving your quality of life.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure used to correct cosmetic and functional skin issues around the eyes, including ptosis (drooping eyelids) and under-eye bags. The surgery involves the excision technique of removing unwanted fat and skin tissue, as well as placing internal sutures to tighten the eye muscles.
The result is a younger-looking, more alert appearance. In cases of severe ptosis, a blepharoplasty can increase your field of vision. Eyelid surgery can also be paired with a brow lift to further rejuvenate the face.
A facelift, also called a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that repositions and tightens loose facial skin. The surgery involves making discreet incisions into the skin to maneuver layers of muscle and tissue, and then pulling the skin tight to give it a firmer, smoother texture.
A facelift is a highly effective means of achieving a more lifted, youthful and rested look.
A neck lift, or platysmaplasty, is similar to a facelift, but focuses on the underlying tissues of the lower face and neck. It involves making discreet incisions beneath the chin, tightening loose muscles and tissue, excising excess skin and suturing the skin to be taut.
A neck lift can eliminate jowls or a double chin and help you achieve a more chiseled jawline.
Liposuction and body contouring
Liposuction employs a suction technique to remove excess fat from almost anywhere on the body, including the abdomen, back, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms and neck.
Nose surgery, or rhinoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that reconstructs the shape of the nose. There are two primary techniques for rhinoplasty. In a closed procedure, incisions are made inside the nose, resulting in no visible scarring. For an open procedure, an incision is made on the columella, the small area of tissue between the nostrils.
Implants and Muscle Augmentation
Augmentation involves the insertion of a cosmetic implant into the body, enhancing the appearance of features such as the chin, lips and various muscles. A wide range of cosmetic implants are offered to contour and increase the size of various desired areas with natural-looking results.
Another option for augmentation is fat grafting, in which unwanted fat is removed from another area of the body and injected into the area requiring enhancement.

Before & Afters
What to Expect from Your Plastic Surgery Procedure
Plan to undergo medical evaluation and some lab tests for plastic surgeons to consider factors such as skin thickness and body type. A week to several weeks before the surgery, you’ll likely need to stop drinking alcohol, smoking and taking anti-inflammatory medications.
During the surgery, you’ll be under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. The operation may take from 45 minutes up to several hours. Arrange for someone to drive you home post operation.
Afterward, be sure to follow all your surgeon’s care instructions. Your recovery may take anywhere from a few days to 6–8 weeks. During that period, you’ll have multiple follow-up appointments to ensure the healing process is going smoothly. Do not recommence activities such as exercise until cleared to do so by your surgeon.
Cost of Plastic Surgery Procedures for Men in Greenville, SC
The cost of surgery for men depends on many factors, the most important of which being which type of surgery you’re planning on getting.
Other factors that may add to the overall cost include the complexity of the concern being addressed and how many services are being required (incisions, excisions, etc.). To learn more specific details about procedural pricing, give us a call or schedule a consultation today.
We offer nonsurgical procedures that are also popular among men. The ones we perform most often include:
- Botox and other injectable neurotoxins are toxins injected into muscles to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The toxin blocks nerve signals that allow muscle mobility, relaxing the muscles and preventing them from making the movements that create wrinkles.
- Dermal fillers are gel-like substances injected into the skin to temporarily reduce wrinkles, increase lost volume and enhance specific facial features. The primary ingredient of most fillers is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that is lost with age.
- Laser and light therapies address issues such as acne scars, dark spots, visible veins and provide overall skin rejuvenation. Treatment is customized to be gentle or more aggressive, depending on your goals and wishes.

Is plastic surgery safe?
Any surgery carries a certain amount of risk. By choosing a reputable, board-certified plastic surgeon who uses top-of-the-line technologies and techniques, you minimize the chances of poor outcomes. Be sure to discuss your full medical history and any concerns with your surgeon.
Will I go home the same day?
In most cases, plastic surgery is an outpatient procedure, and you will go home the same day as surgery. Patients undergoing extensive body contouring procedures or multiple procedures on the same day may need to stay overnight in one of our comfortable suites for monitoring.
How soon can I go back to work?
Plastic surgery procedures vary greatly in length for full recovery, depending on the type of work one does. If your job requires heavy lifting or physical exertion, some procedures may require a wait time of 1–2 months before fully returning to work. With minor procedures, downtime may be a few days to none.
