6 Male cosmetic surgeries you may never have heard of, but perhaps you might want?

Men not only like the nicer things in life, but are now increasing more concerned about they way they look. We all know that men are hard to buy for especially as they get older – if they want something they just go and get it.

Men are super proud of their fancy watch, fast car and love to go and be seen at the best restaurants in town, but what about a flatter tummy or firmer chest —now that’s something he could always use.  And a bigger schlong: Who doesn’t want that? Or refine your features to stand out with a sharper nose or defy aging and loose those hooded eyelids or eyebags to look more slick.

More than 1.1 million procedures were performed on men 2015, according to figures from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and this trend is to increased this year. But while the majority of those plastic surgeon visits were men looking for nose jobs, liposuction, and face lifts, there are a few lesser-known procedures, that are equally self-esteem-enhancing, procedures described below together with some you may already know.  

1 ) Lipo-sculpting and fat transfers

Target areas: Abdominal, Chest, love handles back and buttocks

What’s will it do?

If your ab muscles are solid, but they’re obscured by a layer of fat, abdominal etching can give you the six-pack you always dreamed of. Providing you have muscles and have worked out to get them. Befitting its artistic-sounding name, ab etching requires a skilled surgeon to liposuction out the fat between the ab muscles, leaving behind indentations that give you that toned ripped look. If you are less defined and have normal muscles and are struggling to remove the stubborn fat from your tummy, back and hips, this still might be for you. Say goodbye to love handles and if you want to transfer your fat you could take the opportunity to buff up your buttocks BBL Brazilian.

Word to the wise:

While ab etching can work wonders, it’ll only do so if you have already well-developed stomach muscles waiting to come out of hiding.

If you are just looking to firm and flatten your tummy liposuction can do this, providing you have superficial belly fat and not mostly visceral fat. For overhanging skin that is causing an apron tummy, a Tummy tuck might be considered.

Must haves as part of your recovery kit : A compression garment or vest to help sculpt your new shape and well stocked freezer of ice packs.

Procedure time: 45 minutes to 2 hours

Overnight stay in hospital

Target areas: Chest

 What’s will it do?:

 If you have fat deposits or uncalled-for breast tissue in the wrong places like your chest and feel that you need to wear thicker shirts to cover your puffy man boobs or Moobs and nipples then this might be a good option for you to firm up your chest and bring back your confidence.

Word to the wise:

 In most cases this can be done with liposuction by a skilled plastic surgeon to remove the excess fat. If your skin has stretched or if you have breast tissue and fat then you may need a slightly bigger procedure to remove the breast tissue and small tuck to your skin too.

Procedure time: 45 minutes to 2 hours

3)   Baggy Eye bags or Facelift

 What’s will it do?

Men are supposed to age like wine right, but some men do begin to develop heavy bags under their eyes making them look much older than they actually are, not to mentioned tried and a bit unapproachable at times.

This creepy skin can be removed and the skin under the eyes tighten and smoothed, to give a much improved look and dial the clock backwards to before the bags pitched up and moved in, to draw your face down.   

Word to the wise:

You will need to clear your calendar, as this is your face and you will look like you have had a knock or met with some sort of accident for a couple of weeks, until the bruises and swelling around your eyes has gone down to later reveal your new bag-less eyes.  

Must haves as part of your recovery kit:
Dark sunglasses and well stocked freezer of ice packs.

Procedure time: 45 minutes to 2 hours

Overnight stay in hospital

Recovery time: 10 days to 2 weeks

4)  Liquid Facelift – Couple BRO-TOX with Dermal fillers for a sneaky.
No Surgery !  Just injectables. 

Target areas: Forehead, Eyebags, crows feet, Yogi bear folds (nose to mouth)

Bro-TOX  or botox for men!

Fix Frown lines with tiny injections of BOTOX BRO!
Fix Frown lines with tiny injections of BOTOX BRO!


What will it do?

While most men these days grow beards and cover half of their faces—wrinkles on the eyes and deep train track forehead lines will still be on full show. 

Instant tiny injections across the brow and crow’s-feet (outer eye areas) can smooth away wrinkles and in some cases have lasting effects, using a technique called anti- wrinkle therapy, where a skilled plastic surgeon injects BOTOX in to your muscles to relax the muscles and stop them from creating deep lines when you express yourself showing your less visible laughter lines and frown lines.  

The surgeon will carefully place the Botox and expertly gauge the amount needed, so you are not frozen and still maintain natural expression. 

For men are you have stronger muscles a slightly higher dose may be needed hence BRO-Tox for men. Even though you might need upwards of 80 units for stronger muscles, most clients are happy with around 5o units per treatment.

If you want to freshen up with minimum downtime try a liquid facelift not only will you see dramatic instant results that only you will notice, but to everyone else, it’s so subtle, it’s like you just look better – who cares how you really did it.

Shh Liquid facelift – keep it to yourself…

Word to the wise: 

Botox is highly toxic substance and should only be handled by expert professionals like plastic surgeons.

The process is relatively low on the ouch meter like a little mosquito bite, but the surgeon’s practice painless treatments and add numbing cream first, so you will experience low to no pain. And a couple of months down the road, the BROTOX will begin to wear off and you can do more treatments every 6 months or until you feel you need them. The high-end brand fillers are FDA approved and should only be used by skilled professionals with experience and extensive training. Less is definitely more, with fillers to pump up your look.

Cost: BOTOX from Rs. 800 per unit (min 50 units) 

Average treatment cost: Rs.40,000

Procedure time: 30 mins 

Recovery time: None (Mild bruising or swelling, if some cases)

Repeat at 6 month intervals, subsequent treatments may require fewer units for some

5)   Scrotoplasty (Scrotum Lift)

What it is:

Well, in a nutshell, a scrotum lift is a face-lift for your baggy or slightly saggy balls. Some men really sag down there and just can’t hang with all the dangling stretched extra skin. 

A plastic surgeon can remove excess skin and generally tighten the tackle, improving crotch-area comfort and appearance (no wrinkles!) while preserving normal function of the very precious family jewels.

Just for the record, this is not what you may have hears about in the press , the so-called ball-ironing procedure George Clooney has joked about. Ball ironing does exist, but it’s a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure designed to spruce up the area (i.e., no actual reshaping is done). Either way, it takes some balls getting this kind of work done. You can have this done as a treatment with your liposuction or other cosmetic procedures.

Procedure time: 1 to 2 hours

Recovery time: 5 to 7 days

6) Phalloplasty (Penis Girth Enlargement )

What it is: 

Phalloplasty is the new plus ultra of male cosmetic surgery. No matter what those “natural male enhancement” spam e-mails claim, surgery is the only way you’re going to increase length or girth down there. Until recently, phalloplasty was only for men seeking penile reconstruction after damage to the penis or female-to-male transsexuals, but now surgeons perform it for purely cosmetic reasons. Fortunately, the surgery to lengthen the penis is surprisingly simple: The surgeon loosens the ligament connecting the penis to the pubic bone, freeing the penis to extend further. Typical post-surgery length gains are one to two cm nowadays many surgeon so not deem this to be worth doing and prefer to focus on procedures for the girth as the enlargement factor.

Increased penile girth is generally accomplished by grafting tissue (Fat transfer)  below the skin, resulting in a 10 to 20 percent increase in circumference. However, when it comes to girth enhancement, do be aware that the bulk of the increased bulk will be apparent when the penis is flaccid. …a hard truth.

Time:  Girth enhancement, 2 hours

Recovery time: 5 to 7 days

6.1 ) Erectile Dysfunction Shockwave Treatment (SWT)  

Impotence is a common problem for men over 40.
Erectile dysfunction (ED).  

What it is:

Men suffering from Erectile dysfunction (ED) there is a new procedure to help! SWT!

For around Rs.25,000 to Rs. 38,000 (Approx. USD $238)
a wakeup blast to the penis has helped hundreds of men back to happier days.

ED is the inability to get and keep an erection for sexual intercourse. ED is quite common, with studies showing that about one half of American men over age 40 are affected. It is estimated that half of all men between the ages of 40 and 70 suffer from erectile dysfunction to some degree. This includes 5pc of 40-year-old men and 15pc-25pc of 65-year-old men who suffer the condition on a long term basis.

Although not exactly defined, failure to achieve an erection more than 50pc of the time is generally considered by medical professionals to constitute erectile dysfunction.

Penile Shockwave Therapy (SWT) targets the ischemic tissues in the penis to promote increased blood flow to the tissues in the penis to trigger the natural mechanism to solve most ED related problems.

Word to the wise: 

But be prepared to take the doctors advice, as you may be asked to make some lifestyle changes to improve your changes of a successful outcome.

Procedure time: 20-30 mins up to an hour, average of 2 sessions per week for 2 to 3 weeks

The fat of the excess matter

Liposuction is not cosmetic surgery, beauty therapy or a quick cure for obesity. Smriti Daniel finds out when it is considered medically viable and who can benefit from it.

Consultant Plastic Surgeon Dr. Thushan  has a firm ‘not possible’ for anyone who has ever harboured the fantasy of a quick session of liposuction as a cure for their obesity.

The surgery is meant to sculpt the contours of your body (hence it’s alternate title of ‘liposculpture’), and not to manage weight loss. You’ll have to shed your pounds the hard way, says DrThushan, adding that liposuction, however, has its own place – it can help you deal with “resistant” fat deposits which defy exercise and dieting.

In fact, in Sri Lanka, a majority of DrThushan’s patients are not those aspiring to stardom but teenage males with gynecomastia, or male breast enlargement. Ashamed of their condition, his young patients are unable to participate in many everyday activities, such as swimming, with their peers. The success of the surgery lies then in how the patient feels after it’s done – confident enough to pursue their chosen lifestyle.

Beating the bulge

Anyone who has ever struggled with their weight knows that there are parts of your body that seem to have a mind of their own. Plastic surgeons recognize these sites as the most popular candidates for liposuction – the flanks (love handles) and buttocks, the back, the waist and abdomen, legs (ankles, calves and thighs), upper arms, breasts, chest, the neck. Your surgeon might also recommend liposuction as a way to create a more natural skin contour at the site of a previous surgery or trauma.
During liposuction, fat deposits are removed using thin metal tubes called cannulas.

The tube is connected to a clear plastic hose, which leads to the suction source. The surgeon inserts the cannula either into the layers of deep fat or superficial fat, and manipulates it in a specific pattern depending on the area being treated. The intention is to reduce the amount of fat in that area, not to remove all of it. This is because fat is an important tissue and plays a key role in skin shape and firmness – remove all of it and you’ll be left with loose skin and “dents”.

Realistic expectations

Liposuction falls under the category of “elective surgeries” – it’s a matter of personal choice and not a medical necessity. It also comes with no guarantees. As with all plastic surgery, the success of liposuction will depend on a number of factors unique to each individual — weight, age, skin elasticity and overall health must all be considered. Weight is a surprisingly crucial point of consideration – you may only be eligible for liposuction if your Body Mass Index is at or near ideal standards. If you are more than 15 kg overweight, you’d do better to head for the gym before you consider surgery.

Why is weight such an issue? The answer has much to do with how your body responds under anaesthesia — obesity, along with other elements such as smoking habits, can place your life at risk.
Many of Dr. Thushan’s patients are below the age of 40, when the skin is still supple enough to shape itself to the new contours he creates. And getting liposuction itself need not result in a flat tummy or taunt buttocks, not if the underlying muscles are weak.

Liposuction is often combined with other procedures such as tummy tuck, says DrThushan. Liposuction alone may not be appropriate for people with large hanging folds of skin that may need to be surgically removed, as in the case of  “tummy tucks”, breast reductions, breast lifts or face lifts. Liposuction does not improve cellulite (the cause of the dimpled skin covering the buttocks and thighs), nor does it remove stretch marks.

Poorly controlled diabetes, any infection, heart or circulation problems generally disqualify one for the procedure because these conditions interfere with healing and recovery.

Types of liposuction

Though there are several types of liposuction, including the dry technique (not generally recommended because of heavy blood loss associated with the procedure) and the ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (not currently performed in Sri Lanka), the tumescent liposuction procedure is considered a safe, popular and effective technique.

Here, the surgeon injects large quantities of fluid, usually a diluted mix that includes a local anaesthetic and a capillary constrictor, into subcutaneous fat. Together with specific medications, this liquid reduces localised bleeding. The fat cells swell with fluid, becoming swollen and firm, or tumescent. The surgeon inserts and manipulates the cannula and uses suction to remove much of the fatty tissue and most of the injected fluid. The rest is absorbed into the body.

Healing and recovery

Recovery from liposuction is relatively quick – and many patients are up and about within 2-3 days. If you’re recovering from a tummy tuck as well, however, it’s likely to take longer. Swelling and bruising are to be expected, but both will subside within weeks following the surgery. After liposuction, an elastic compression garment may be recommended to help reduce the thickness of the fat layer and reduce swelling caused by the procedure.

Weight gains, weight loss, as well as fluid retention all affect how successful your liposuction surgery is in the long term. While a specific area treated by liposuction is less likely to increase to its former size because it has fewer fat cells, the surgery doesn’t mean you can forego all dieting and exercising. If food intake is not controlled following liposuction, fat tissue is likely to increase at other sites across the body, and you’ll be back to square one. Liposuction works best in those who exercise regularly and control their diets.
