Surgery for Men

Plastic Surgery for Men - Bethesda, MD - Facial Surgery, Liposuction, Tummy Tuck, and More

Plastic surgery is not just for women anymore. These days, more and more men concerned with looking their best are opting for plastic surgery. At our Bethesda, Maryland, plastic surgery practice near Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, facial surgery and liposuction are commonly requested by male patients, as are male breast reduction, tummy tuck , and facial rejuvenation treatments. Whether chosen out of a personal desire to look better or as a way to compete in Washington, DC's image conscious professional environment, plastic surgery has gained wide acceptance among both men and women alike.

Cosmetic surgery for men presents unique challenges to the plastic surgeon. Men have hair in the facial area, their skin tends to be thicker with a richer blood supply, and their esthetic needs and preferences are distinct from women. When considering plastic surgery, therefore, it is important that men choose a board certified plastic surgeon with experience working with men's specific needs. Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a highly respected plastic surgeon in Bethesda, Maryland, with many years experience performing plastic surgery for both men and women. He would be happy to meet with you personally to discuss your goals, tell you more about his credentials, or show you before-and-after pictures of his work.

Facial Surgery

Many men are starting to realize the benefits of looking their best, no matter what their age. Facial plastic surgery can be an important way of helping men stay competitive in their profession, project vitality, and look as young as they feel. At our Bethesda, Maryland, practice, the following plastic surgery procedures are among the most commonly requested by men. If you would like to learn more about one of these procedures, or are interested in another cosmetic surgery procedure that you don't see listed here, please contact our Bethesda, Maryland, plastic surgery practice directly.

Facelift

Reduce sagging in your midface and jaw and return to a smooth, unlined appearance with a facelift. Dr. Oldham works with great precision to hide incisions for his male patients and avoid bringing hair-bearing skin up on the ears during this plastic surgery procedure. Learn more about facelift.

Neck Lift (Cervicoplasty)

Removing extra skin and fat beneath the chin and tightening the remaining tissue can dramatically enhance a man's youthful appearance. Neck lift may also involve liposuction to remove extra fat and is frequently combined with a facelift.

Forehead Lift (Brow Lift)

A forehead lift can take years off your appearance by raising the position of the brow and smoothing over frown lines on the forehead. Dr. Oldham performs endoscopic (minimally invasive) forehead lift surgery. Learn more about forehead lift.

Nose Surgery (Rhinoplasty)

Men and women alike wish to refine the shape of the nose. Dr. Oldham can reduce the size of your nose, subtly alter the tip, remove a bump, or straighten crookedness resulting from a badly healed break. Learn more about nose surgery.

Eyelid Surgery

Bags underneath the eyes or sagging upper eyelids – whether from stress, overwork, genetic predisposition, or aging – can make a man appear much older than he is. During eyelid surgery, Dr. Oldham can remove the excess tissue and fat that cause bags and sagging to give your eyes a more rested, alert appearance.

Chin Augmentation

A well-defined chin helps balance the nose and profile, creating overall symmetry in the face. By contrast, an underdeveloped chin can make the nose look more prominent than it actually is or undermine an otherwise balanced face.

Dr. Oldham performs customized chin augmentation surgery with high-grade facial implants to strengthen the lower face and give a strong, confident profile. Facial implants are placed through incisions inside the mouth or underneath the chin. For more information about chin augmentation, contact our cosmetic surgery practice today.

Liposuction

Men are frequently troubled by exercise-resistant pockets of fat on the abdomen; above the hips (the so-called "love handles"); on the back; and sometimes underneath the chin. In many cases, this problem is genetic. Bodies are programmed to store fat in certain areas and no amount of exercise will eliminate it. For these men, liposuction can provide a solution.

Liposuction targets the body’s problem areas, removing unwanted fat and giving men a trimmer, more streamlined physique. However, it is a body contouring procedure, not a general weight loss program. Best results are obtained when men combine liposuction with a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Oldham performs tumescent-style liposuction at various hospital outpatient centers in and around Washington, DC. In tumescent liposuction, anesthetic fluid is used to fill and numb the treatment area before fat removal, increasing patient comfort and minimizing bleeding. Depending on your skin tone and needs, Dr. Oldham may also combine liposuction with removal of excess skin for optimal results.

Many men in our Washington, DC, area practice find that liposuction, combined with targeted exercise, delivers the toned, muscular bodies they have been unable to achieve otherwise. To learn more about what liposuction could do for your, contact The Practice of Dr. Roger J. Oldham today.

Tummy Tuck

Between the ages of 30 and 40, men’s bodies naturally begin to store excess fat in the abdominal region. Men often find this fat extremely difficult to lose and, even when successful, may find themselves left with excess, hanging skin in their midsection. A tummy tuck can solve this problem.

Performed at various hospital locations in Bethesda, Maryland, Northern Virginia, and the Washington, DC, area, a tummy tuck can rid your body of unwanted skin and fat, tighten the muscles in the abdominal area, and give you a slimmer, more toned appearance. Dr. Oldham performs the full range of tummy tuck procedures, from full abdominoplasty to the mini-tummy tuck.

Full abdominoplasty may be the best choice for men with substantial amounts of excess skin and weakened abdominal muscles. A mini-tummy tuck may be an option for men with less excess skin or whose fat deposits are primarily on the lower abdomen. Dr. Oldham may also combine a tummy tuck procedure with liposuction to enhance body-contouring results. For further details about the different tummy tuck options, please see our body contouring page.

Each man’s body sculpting needs are unique. Dr. Oldham would be happy to meet with you personally to discuss your individual goals and help you determine the best treatment program. To set up a consultation with Dr. Oldham or find out more about the tummy tuck, contact our Bethesda, Maryland, plastic surgery practice today.

Male Breast Reduction

Many men feel embarrassed or self-conscious about excess fat and skin on their chests that gives the appearance of small breasts (a condition known as gynecomastia). This problem, which is more common than most men realize, can cause a man to forego swimming, playing sports, or wearing the type of clothing he would like to wear. If you are one of these men, male breast reduction can help.

Male breast reduction is a discrete, outpatient surgical procedure that removes excess fat and glandular tissue from the chest, helping you feel comfortable in and out of your clothing. Occasionally, liposuction alone, without further surgery, is enough to resolve the problem. In other cases, particularly if there is excess hanging skin, liposuction may be combined with surgery to remove fat and recontour the skin to the chest wall. A one- to two-inch incision around the border of the nipple is usually the only external incision, and the resulting scar, in most cases, is barely discernible.

Dr. Oldham can evaluate your specific needs to determine the best approach for you. Take the first step towards feeling better about your body. Contact our Washington, DC, area practice today to learn more about male breast reduction.
