Male Plastic Surgery in Richmond, Indiana
Allure Center for Plastic Surgery
Over the last few decades, men have come to appreciate the benefits of plastic surgery. By pursuing a variety of procedures developed specifically for male patients, men can enhance their masculinity, minimize aesthetic flaws and rejuvenate their overall appearance. Dr. S. Travis Greathouse is one of the more accomplished plastic surgeons in Richmond and offers an extensive array of male cosmetic surgery treatments. He recognizes that many male patients feel apprehensive about pursuing elective surgery. This is why Dr. Greathouse offers discrete, comprehensive consultations during which he explains how various procedures can help the male patient enhance his image. Read on to learn about some of the male plastic surgery treatments that Dr. Greathouse's patients often decide to pursue.
Male Breast Reduction
One of the more common aesthetic concerns among men is overdeveloped chest tissue, which creates an appearance of female-looking breasts. Men who suffer from this condition often feel embarrassed to take off their shirts at the beach or at the gym, and they might also feel self-conscious in intimate situations. While exercise and proper diet can help reduce the amount of excess chest tissue, often these measures are not enough. For men who desire to achieve a flat, masculine chest, Dr. S. Travis Greathouse offers male breast reduction surgery. During this procedure, he uses either liposuction alone or liposuction in combination with an excision method to remove the excess fat and tissue.

Liposuction is often pursued by men who are otherwise fit but have stubborn localized fat deposits in the stomach and lower back areas. In addition to removing these tissue deposits, liposuction can also be used to sculpt the remaining stomach tissues into a "six pack." This technique is called liposculpture, and it can create the appearance of well-developed abs within a single surgical session. Many male patients also undergo liposuction to sculpt the neck and chin area. By removing the excess fatty tissue, Dr. Greathouse can eliminate a double chin and create a more masculine neck line.

Neck liposuction is usually appropriate for younger patients with relatively small amounts of excess fat and youthful, elastic skin that will retract once the excess fat is gone. This technique might not be appropriate for mature men with excess skin folds and displaced fatty tissue deposits in the neck area. For these patients, Dr. S. Travis Greathouse often performs neck lift surgery — a procedure that can create a more youthful neck and jaw contour. To learn more about neck lift surgery, please click here.
Men often fail to take proper care of their skin, exposing it to sun, wind and extreme cold without any protection. As a result, wrinkles, folds, and jowls might develop at a relatively young age, making the patient appear much older than he feels on the inside. Fortunately, many of these unwelcome changes can be reversed by facelift surgery. During this procedure, Dr. Greathouse removes excess skin and fatty tissue and gently stretches the facial skin into a smoother, more youthful position. Generally, facelift helps improve the appearance of the lower face, and other procedures (such as brow lift and eyelid surgery) are needed to correct signs of aging in the upper face.

A strong, pronounced jaw line is one of the more important characteristics of the male face. Dr. S. Travis Greathouse is experienced in helping men with less-than-masculine jaw contours achieve a stronger jaw line. Depending on each patient's unique aesthetic needs and desires, he uses a variety of surgical techniques to achieve this goal. Some of the more common techniques include chin implants and jaw implants. The implants are placed through small incisions under the chin or within the cheeks, and they appear completely natural once the healing period is over.
