Male Rhinoplasty Surgery: Dr. Kim is a California Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has performed a large number of rhinoplasty procedures on both men and women. There are many Rhinoplasty procedures available to men, including size reduction or augmentation, changes in the bridge of the nose, nostril narrowing or changes to the tip of the nose. Dr. Kim will discuss which option is best for you during your complimentary free consultation at his L.A. surgical offices in California.
Gynecomastia Surgery: Gynecomastica is the common medical term for describing the presence of excess breast tissue in a man. This is a medical condition and is actually rather common. It affects up to 60 percent of the male population, so you are not alone. At this time, it is not fully known what causes gynecomastica. Dr. Kim understands that as a man, gynecomastia can be a condition that makes a man feel particularly self-conscious. In order to help these man, Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kim provides a plastic surgery procedure for men called Male Breast Reduction Surgery. Dr Kim performs “male breast reduction surgery” onsite as an out-patient surgery in his Beverly Hills surgical suite. This surgical procedure removes the fat and glandular tissue from one or both breasts, depending on the needs of the patient. In extreme cases, the male breast reduction surgery will remove excess skin, as well. The result is a significantly flatter chest with improved contour and aesthetics.
Male Liposuction Surgery: Male Liposuction is a fast and very effective way to reduce fat in men. For male patients, the most common problem areas usually include the abdomen (abs), “love handles,” the chest area and frequently the neck line. These parts of the body in men tend to be particularly resistant to improvement through exercise and dieting, especially as men age. Men also tend to accumulate fat in all the wrong places such as the eyelids, face, abdomen, neck, breasts and thighs. Fortunately, male liposuction can be performed on ALL of these areas. Male liposuction surgery is an out-patient procedure. In some cases, it is the ONLY way to get rid of unwanted fat in areas of the body that are genetically programmed to resist weight loss through more common methods such as diet or exercise. Most men return their normal workdays and exercise routines in just a couple of days.
