Over the last few decades, men have come to appreciate the benefits of plastic surgery. By pursuing a variety of procedures developed specifically for male patients, men can enhance their masculinity, minimize aesthetic flaws and rejuvenate their overall appearance. Dr. Graper and Dr. Harper are two of the more accomplished plastic surgeons in Charlotte that offer an extensive array of male cosmetic surgery treatments. They recognize that many male patients feel apprehensive about pursuing elective surgery. This is why we offer discrete, comprehensive consultations during which we explain how various procedures can help the male patient enhance his image. Read on to learn about some of the male plastic surgery treatments that both doctor’s patients often decide to pursue.
Male Breast Reduction
One of the more common aesthetic concerns among men is overdeveloped chest tissue, which creates an appearance of female-looking breasts. Men who suffer from this condition often feel embarrassed to take off their shirts at the beach or at the gym, and they might also feel self-conscious in intimate situations. While exercise and proper diet can help reduce the amount of excess chest tissue, often these measures are not enough. For men who desire to achieve a flat, masculine chest, Graper Harper Cosmetic Surgery offers male breast reduction surgery. During this procedure, we use either liposuction alone or liposuction in combination with an excision method to remove the excess fat and tissue.

Liposuction is often pursued by men who are otherwise fit but have stubborn localized fat deposits in the stomach and lower back areas. In addition to removing these tissue deposits, liposuction can also be used to sculpt the remaining stomach tissues into a “six pack.” This technique is called liposculpture, and it can create the appearance of well-developed abs within a single surgical session. Many male patients also undergo liposuction to sculpt the neck and chin area. By removing the excess fatty tissue, Dr. Graper and Dr. Harper can eliminate a double chin and create a more masculine neckline. To learn more about liposuction, please click here.
Neck liposuction is usually appropriate for younger patients with relatively small amounts of excess fat and youthful, elastic skin that will retract once the excess fat is gone. This technique might not be appropriate for mature men with excess skin folds and displaced fatty tissue deposits in the neck area. For these patients, we often perform neck lift surgery — a procedure that can create a more youthful neck and jaw contour. To learn more about neck lift surgery, please click here.
Men often fail to take proper care of their skin, exposing it to sun, wind and extreme cold without any protection. As a result, wrinkles, folds, and jowls might develop at a relatively young age, making the patient appear much older than he feels on the inside. Fortunately, many of these unwelcome changes can be reversed by facelift surgery. During this procedure, Dr. Graper or Dr. Harper removes excess skin and fatty tissue and gently stretches the facial skin into a smoother, more youthful position. Generally, facelift helps improve the appearance of the lower face, and other procedures (such as brow lift and eyelid surgery) are needed to correct signs of aging in the upper face.

A strong, pronounced jaw line is one of the more important characteristics of the male face. Graper Harper Cosmetic Surgery is experienced in helping men with less-than-masculine jaw contours achieve a stronger jaw line. Depending on each patient’s unique aesthetic needs and desires, our doctors use a variety of surgical techniques to achieve this goal. Some of the more common techniques include chin implants and jaw implants. The implants are placed through small incisions under the chin or within the cheeks, and they appear completely natural once the healing period is over,
PRP Hair and Beard Restoration and Repair
Thinning hair or hair loss can be due to a variety of reasons – heredity, stress, chemical damage, medications and underlying health issues are just a few of them. PRP which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as “Liquid Gold” is a highly-effective process to restore hair growth on the head. It also works well for men’s beards that may have patchy or uneven hair growth. We simply draw a vial of your blood, spin it in a centrifuge to separate the blood from the platelets and then re-inject your own plasma, the “Liquid Gold”, back into your scalp. The process takes about 15 minutes for your entire head of hair to be regenerated, down to the cellular level. A series of 3 treatments is recommended, 8 to 12 weeks apart.
