Male Surgery FAQs


    The choice of surgery usually depends on the age of the man. Younger men choose rhinoplasty to improve the appearance of their nose and often for breathing problems associated with previous trauma, such as a broken nose. Another popular procedure for the younger man is the operation to reduce gynecomastia or “man boobs”.

    As men enter their late 30s and early 40s they often elect to have eyelid surgery in Sydney, especially if they have bulging fat in the lower eyelids that gives them a sleepy or tired appearance. Liposuction is popular in the 35 to 45 age group when weight gain can lead to an unattractive “beer belly” and “love handles”.

    Men are also feeling the pressure of normal ageing—the sagging of the jowls, the double chin and the aged tired look. Most 50-year-olds, however, do not regard themselves as old and still feel competitive and turn to the gym, nutritional awareness, less smoking, anti-ageing medicines and yes, facelifts. Encouraged by the success of rejuvenation surgery in women, men are now coming forward for surgical procedures and 30 per cent of Dr Hodgkinson’s practice is comprised of men.

    The key to facelifts for men is to concentrate on defining the jaw and eliminating the double chin whilst not taking away all the lines of expression that are a natural part of a masculine face.
