Male Body Surgery

Whether you’ve lost significant weight or are looking to boost your confidence in your body, plastic surgery can be one of the most transformative options available. Although plastic surgery has traditionally been a women’s market, there are more men than ever discovering the benefits of a contoured, masculine body. Whatever your goals for improving your confidence and your look, Dr. Diktaban can plan the ideal body procedure for you using our best options for men.


What Are the Best Body Procedures for Men?

It takes special skills to produce flattering, masculine contours with plastic surgery. In most cases, men are looking to reduce stubborn pockets of fat or loose skin after losing significant weight, usually in areas like the chest, stomach, arms, or legs. This means the following procedures are excellent options for men.

Gynecomastia Surgery

Gynecomastia is a condition specific to men where they experience excess fat or breast tissue in the chest, causing male breasts (man boobs). There can be a variety of causes— certain drugs or medications can cause excess hormones, as well as weight gain or underlying medical conditions. When adjusting for these factors doesn’t produce results, gynecomastia surgery is an effective option. It can be performed using liposuction, surgical gland excision, or a combination of both to reduce the appearance of male breasts and achieve a flat, masculine chest.


Even with the best diet and exercise, fat can be difficult to get rid of. When you’re near your weight goal, however, liposuction is an effective way to improve your contours and flatten areas where you can’t seem to find results. Liposuction is a tried and true plastic surgery procedure that can be customized to your unique goals, improving areas like the stomach, chest, back, arms, legs, hips, and chin. Best of all, liposuction comes with minimal downtime versus more invasive procedures, meaning you can get back to your regular schedule within a week.

Tummy Tuck

Although it has traditionally been a primary option for women, the tummy tuck is an exceptional way for men to achieve a flat, contoured stomach. Especially if you’ve recently lost weight, it’s common to have extra fat and skin in the abdominal area that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. Although liposuction can be an effective option, the tummy tuck can tighten the underlying muscles and reduce excess skin for all-around improvement. Although the tummy tuck comes with some significant downtime, this remains an excellent option for men looking to boost their confidence when taking their shirt off or in the bedroom.

Male Body Procedure Candidates

As with any plastic surgery procedure, it’s extremely important to discuss your health and medical history to determine if surgery is your best option. During your consultation with Dr. Diktaban, you’ll discuss your goals and preferences for each procedure to create the right surgical plan for you. Most body procedures require that you be at or near your ideal weight without fluctuations for a significant amount of time. This ensures that you can maintain your results with a healthy lifestyle and good habits since weight fluctuations can negatively affect your results, meaning you might require another procedure.
