Specialist in Orange County reveals slim silhouettes with body treatments customized for men
By Thomas T. Nguyen, M.D
The face of cosmetic surgery is changing; patients are increasingly male. While the most common cosmetic surgeries among men are facial, nose jobs and blepharoplasties to awaken the eyes, the fastest-growing procedures in Orange County are slim body treatments.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports there has never been more breast reduction surgeries among men. For the first time, as of 2015, men accounted for more than 40 percent of those procedures.
Dr. Nguyen at The Institute of Cosmetic Surgery and Reconstruction in Fountain Valley have been treating male patients’ unique needs and challenges for 15-plus years to achieve desirable outcomes.
A word on male breast reduction
This is the most sought-after cosmetic procedure for the body among male patients. Men faced with genetic challenges to the shape and size of their breasts often request this surgery. Enlarged breast tissue, known as gynecomastia, often peaks around the ages of 50 to 80, due to age-related hormonal changes. Several prescription and non-prescription drugs can also throw hormones out-of-balance and produce excess breast tissue.
After a thorough consultation, Dr. Nguyen will determine if surgery to remove the excess tissue will achieve the desired results in your specific case. Generally, liposuction sucks out fat through very thin needles connected to a surgical vacuum or syringe. Reduction mammoplasty comes into play to expertly remove glandular tissue through small incisions. The doctor may recommend a combination of techniques.

Liposuction can be used to sculpt other areas of the body, such as stubborn pockets of abdominal fat. Abdominoplasty or tummy tuck can work wonders on excess fat and skin. Dr. Nguyen and his team also offer “pec” lifts to create more muscle definition, as well as many other procedures customized to male patients’ needs and goals.
