With his attention to detail and unerring dedication to achieving outstanding, long-lasting results, Dr. Small is dedicated to helping both men and women receive the benefits of cosmetic and restorative surgery.
Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a condition in which males are possessed of excessive, enlarged breast tissue, and it affects millions of boys and men to some degree throughout the world. Usually, the symptoms can be treated with simple diet and exercise. However, in some cases, lifestyle changes are not enough. The presence of enlarged breasts has been shown to have detrimental psychological effects on males, especially boys who have yet to undergo or are undergoing puberty. Dr. Small takes care to advise his patients about the various ways to improve their appearance, while examining non-hereditary causes for the symptoms including puberty, obesity, and aging. Although surgery is the final option for many patients with gynecomastia, male breast reduction can be performed with impressive results at Dr. Small’s New Jersey practice.
Male breast reduction begins with Dr. Small performing a detailed physical exam and an evaluation of the potential causes of gynecomastia. After determining the make-up of the tissue in the area, he targets specific areas from which excess fat and tissue can be removed. Dr. Small makes a thin incision in such a way that it leaves very minimal scarring upon its closure. From this location, Dr. Small removes unwanted tissue and fat, tightens muscles where necessary, and makes any other predetermined adjustments. At the end of the procedure, the skin from the chest is pulled down and tightened around the incision, and the patient is bandaged for recovery at home.
The procedure is highly effective in eliminating breast tissue in men and in creating a flatter, more masculine chest. To learn more about male breast reduction surgery or any other procedure offered at Dr. Small’s New Jersey practice, please contact Bergen Plastic Surgery today.
Liposuction for Men
Liposuction has gained popularity with men because it quickly, effectively, and discretely removes unwanted fat from regions such as the love handles and lower abdomen. For men who would like to make some minor improvements in their bodies after diet or exercise has failed, liposuction may be the best option.
During the procedure, Dr. Small uses a thin tube called a cannula and an aspirator to target specific problem areas on men such as the belly, chin, and “love handles.” In a short period of time, he is able to take inches off the body, producing a healthier, more youthful-looking physique. If you are interested in liposuction or any of the other procedures that Dr. Small offers at his practice, please contact our office.
Facelift for Men
Men often have difficulty maintaining the firmness of their skin as they age. This is a problem that is particularly noticeable in the face. Drooping brows and sagging jowls are just two of the many cosmetic flaws that can affect men’s faces as they age. Sometimes, these flaws are even more noticeable in a man than in a woman. Fortunately, facelifts can now be tailored to the unique needs of men, often resulting in dramatic differences in their overall appearance, confidence, and social standing.
At his New Jersey center, Dr. Small begins the procedure by making small incisions behind the ears along the natural folds of the face in order to minimize scarring following surgery. From there, he is able access the delicate tissue and musculature of the face. Dr. Small is able to reshape the face according to a patient’s goals and needs using minimally invasive techniques. After extra tissue and fat is removed from the face, the loose skin is stretched and sutured so that the face is smooth, taut, and youthful looking. This procedure is an excellent choice for men who want to rejuvenate their faces quickly, effectively, and subtly, without the need for an extended healing period. Dr. Small is a leader in the field of plastic surgery and is committed to giving men the personalized, compassionate care that they need to improve their overall appearance.
Eyelid Surgery for Men
The eyes are often the most expressive parts of our bodies, whatever our gender. They are usually the first thing that we fixate on when we speak to other people. We can express many emotions with our eyes that we have trouble verbalizing. Sagging eyebrows, bags around the eyes, and wrinkles or “crow’s feet” are all conditions that can obscure the eyes and interfere with body language. Dr. Small can help you rediscover the power and expressiveness of your eyes and change your overall appearance for the better with eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty).
Dr. Small begins the procedure by making very thin incisions along the natural folds of the eyelid. He then removes excess tissue and smoothes out wrinkles and bags around the eyes by tightening the skin around them. The incisions are closed delicately, and the patient is allowed to recover at home. To learn more about eyelid surgery or other procedures, please contact Dr. Small at his Paramus office.
Chin Reshaping for Men
Most men would like to have a “strong” chin. A strong chin is neatly proportionate with the rest of the face, contributing to a masculine jaw line. Dr. Small can help you achieve a strong, proportional chin through chin reshaping. Whether you believe your chin is too large, too small, too “weak,” too pronounced, or not pronounced enough, Dr. Small can help you achieve the look that you feel is ideal.
Dr. Small takes extreme care to consult with his patients throughout the process of chin augmentation. Because the procedure is relatively major, we want you to be as prepared and informed as possible before you make the choice to proceed with surgery. Once it has been decided what your new chin should look like, Dr. Small will make an incision inside of the mouth in order to reach your mandible (jawbone). Dr. Small will utilize a custom implant made of silicone to enlarge your chin and build up your jaw. Regardless of how you would like your chin to appear, Dr. Small is able to produce the results you desire. Contact his office for more information on chin reshaping.
