Who is the Ideal Candidate for Male Plastic Surgery?

The most important consideration for male plastic surgery is to have realistic expectations of the surgery, both in terms of short-term improvement and the longevity of the results. Dr. Widenhouse will explain what you can expect from your procedure when you meet with him for a consultation. He will review any medical conditions and ensure you’re in good health.

What Do I Need to Do Before Male Plastic Surgery?

If you are considering male plastic surgery, we invite you to schedule a complimentary cosmetic consultation with Dr. Widenhouse. He will recommend the treatment plan that is best for your personal goals as well as your anatomy and age. If you opt for surgery or plan to undergo multiple procedures, you’ll be given detailed preparation instructions such as stop taking blood thinners and herbal supplements.

What Should I Expect on the Day of My Procedure?

When you arrive at our practice for your treatment, we will prepare you for the procedure and explain the surgical plan. We will also ensure that you have someone available to drive you home if you are having surgery.

How Long Does It Take to Perform Male Plastic Surgery?

The time it takes to perform your plastic surgery depends on the procedures. Some forms of treatment, such as Botox® and Dysport, take a few minutes. Dermal fillers and laser treatments take less than an hour. The length of surgical procedures vary based on the procedure, with options like eyelid surgery or gynecomastia surgery taking one to three hours.

What to Expect After Male Plastic Surgery

Most minimally-invasive procedures have little to no downtime. More invasive surgical procedures require longer recovery periods. We will explain this during your consultation and pre-op appointments. With surgery, you may expect some slight discomfort or pain for about a week, along with bruising, swelling, and more. Some surgeries will have specific side effects, such as dry eyes after eyelid surgery. You will be given detailed aftercare instructions from Dr. Widenhouse.

What are the Risks of Male Plastic Surgery?

Every surgical procedure carries risk and Dr. Widenhouse will discuss them thoroughly. These risks include infection, bleeding, numbness, and bad results. Certain procedures carry more specific risks. When you select a board-certified plastic surgeon, the risks are exceedingly rare and most people experience no adverse effects.

Will I Have Scars After Getting Male Plastic Surgery?

Some of our male plastic surgery treatments cause scars while others result in no scarring. Certain skin products, services, and treatments can be used to minimize scarring afterward. Keep in mind it may take up to a year for scars to heal completely and settle into their final appearance. Dr. Widenhouse will discuss healing and scarring during the consultation appointment.

When Will I See Full Results?

When you see results depends on the procedure. Botox® and dermal fillers produce results in a few days while more extensive procedures require that you wait until any swelling has subsided. This is more typical in a procedure that removes excess skin and excess fat. Laser treatments, depending on the technology, can take months to produce results and are dependent on how well you avoid sun exposure.

How Long Will the Results of Male Plastic Surgery Last?

No cosmetic procedure produces permanent results. In some cases, such as injectable, laser, or skin treatments, the results may help for a few months. Surgical procedures produce longer results, but you are still prone to gaining weight and aging. Complications can also affect the longevity of your results.

How Much Does Male Plastic Surgery Cost in Charleston?

The cost of your male plastic surgery is based upon the procedures included in your treatment plan. We discuss this after your consultation. We accept payment by cash, checks, or personal credit cards. Financing is also available to assist you with covering the costs of your male plastic surgery procedure.
