Male Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery for Men in New Zealand

Male Facelifts, male Breast Reduction for Gynecomastia, Male Rhinoplasty, Abdominoplasty and other cosmetic procedures for Men.

Male Cosmetic surgery is becoming increasingly popular as men want to look more confident, youthful and attractive.

Cosmetic Surgery or Plastic Surgery for Men is easier now, especially with rapid-recovery packages to aid healing and minimise scars.

Surgery is an option that can help you to get the nose shape, jawline contours, chin enhancements, eyelid lift or body contours and flatter chest or stomach that you’ve been wanting.

In earlier times, men underwent surgical procedures such as otoplasty and rhinoplasty, but more and more men today are undergoing surgeries aimed at rejuvenation and shaping the contours of the body.

Like women, men are prone to unwanted marks on the body caused by lifestyle, diet, stress, external factors, and of course aging. In the U.S. alone, men underwent over 1.3 million cosmetic procedures on their bodies last year.

Plastic surgeries for men include all surgeries that aim to improve the appearance, but also the functions of certain parts of the male body.

Rejuvenation and cosmetic surgeries for men 

Plastic surgery for men and women

More men are requesting aesthetic plastic surgery to enhance their appearances and reduce visible signs of ageing.

  • Have years of sun exposure left you wrinkled?
  • Do you want your skin to look smoother?
  • Do you want to look as good on the outside as you feel inside?
  • Has your face aged faster than your body?
  • Do you have stubborn body fat or “man boobs”?
  • Do you have excess skin folds after significant weight loss?
  • Would you like to look as young as your partner or business colleagues?

Am I a Good Candidate for Male Plastic Surgery?

Candidates for male plastic surgery can be all those men who feel reduced self-confidence and dissatisfaction due to congenital or acquired physical defects.

It is important to note that not all “flaws” are an aesthetic or functional problem for all types of people. It may seem to someone that your nose is perfect, while you don’t like it and have been thinking about plastic surgery for years.

But psychological readiness alone, realistic expectations, and responsible behavior and approach to plastic surgery are not enough to call someone a good candidate for plastic surgery.

It is necessary to pass certain tests, mostly physical, in order to be declared ready for the procedure of male plastic surgery.

Special medical conditions, serious illnesses, certain medications can be obstacles for surgical procedures. In order to prevent the possibility of complications for your health, Dr. Gittos will require you to undergo certain health tests to ensure safety and reduce unwanted risks.

Benefits of Male Plastic Surgery & Cosmetic Surgery for Men

Like any form of plastic surgery, men’s plastic surgery provides benefits to all those who feel dissatisfied with their appearance.

Dissatisfaction with appearance can cause a decrease in self-confidence and result in difficulties in progressing in professional and personal life.

The biggest benefit of Male Plastic Surgery is precisely the improvement of your psychological state by removing factors that negatively affect your appearance.

Men generally find it harder to opt for plastic surgery. Fear of the procedure itself, the reaction of friends, colleagues, and family, unnatural results are just some of the factors that probably bother you.

But after the consultation with Dr. Gittos, and extensive conversations about expectations and any doubts you may have, you will be encouraged to take the final step toward the look you dream of.

Patients feel a sudden increase in self-confidence, and thanks to the techniques and experience of Dr. Gittos, recovery, and the procedure itself are much simpler and less stressful than patients think.

Look as Great as Your Feel with Male Plastic Surgery

How Much Is Male Plastic Surgery?

The most common question for male plastic surgery is the price and whether the procedure is covered by Medicare.

Most cases in which patients opt for plastic surgery for aesthetic reasons are not covered by ACC or insurance. But if the aesthetic problem is also a functional problem, ACC might cover your procedure.

It is important to understand that all procedures are individualized to achieve ideal results for each patient. For this reason, it is impossible to determine a median price that would be valid for all patients without holding a consultation.

During the consultation, Dr. Gittos will talk to you about your wishes, possibilities, and expectations that you have from plastic surgery for men. Also, during the consultation, you will receive a specified cost statement for your operation.
