What Concerns Can Male Plastic Surgery Address?
When it comes to plastic surgery, men have a unique set of concerns, which are quite different from those of women. Men typically wish to correct signs of aging while retaining a natural and masculine appearance. Male patients, who comprise one-fourth of Dr. Rizk’s patient list, also choose procedures to help them address issues like:

What Plastic Surgery Options Do Men Have?
Cosmetic procedures are on the rise, and many of these treatments are performed on men. In fact, men now make up 25% of Dr. Rizk’s client base. Male plastic surgery1 in New York is not about looking much younger than your actual age, rather, it is about enhancing your natural appearance and maintaining your skin & health. Just like you would visit the gym regularly to maintain or build your strength and fitness, a proper anti-aging routine also benefits from regular visits to the plastic surgeon.
With recent advancements, as well as the implementation of less invasive and non-surgical rejuvenation treatments2, men have many options to slow down the inevitable signs of aging or correct uneven or unflattering facial features:
Rhinoplasty, commonly referred to as a nose job, is a procedure that alters the shape or size of the nose to bring about a more balanced look to the face, and in many cases, improves functionality. Male rhinoplasty NYC aims to retain a defined and masculine profile, while restoring harmony to the face.
Eyelid surgery for Men
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) improves the appearance of the eyes by removing fat from above or below the eyelids, or removing excess skin. This not only produces a more youthful appearance, but can also correct function problems of the eyes, and restore vision concealed by drooping skin.
Facelift and Forehead Lift
When it comes to facelift men can also benefit. Wrinkles, drooping skin and other age-related creases are a natural part of getting older. However, a facelift or forehead lift from Dr. Rizk will have you looking naturally refreshed, without it being obvious you’ve had surgery.
Similar to the face, the neck also shows signs of age. In order to avoid a pulled look that creates a feminine appearance, as part of his neck lift for men, Dr. Rizk typically operates under the neck muscles to lift the deeper tissues and slide them into a more youthful position.
Otoplasty is commonly known as ‘ear pinning’ surgery, but is much more than that. For those who have been teased or bullied about their ears, or just aren’t happy with how they look, otoplasty corrects the size, placement or proportion of the ears.
Chin and Cheek Surgery
A strong, defined chin is important for many men to feel confident and masculine. For those looking to strengthen a ‘weak’ chin or balance the face, this can be achieved through chin and cheek surgery, with the use of implants or the existing bone and fat.
Risks of Plastic Surgery for Men
There are some side effects3 that men can experience after a plastic surgery procedure, depending on what type of treatment they receive. Some of these include:
- Temporary swelling
- Minimal chance of infection
- Possibility of experiencing pain and discomfort during recovery
- Anesthesia related-side effects like nausea or dizziness
Furthermore, complex surgeries carry additional risks. Before performing any procedure, Dr. Rizk evaluates all patients and discusses the possible side effects so that you can make an informed decision.
