It may seem like most advertisements for cosmetic surgery are aimed at women, but men also benefit from specific procedures designed to improve their appearance. Facial treatments and body sculpting can help adult men achieve a healthy, youthful look. At Peninsula Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, we welcome male patients to inquire about our procedures to determine the best surgery for their needs. 

Popular cosmetic surgeries for men in the Hampton Roads area include:

Gynecomastia Corrective Surgery

The procedure is commonly known as a male breast reduction. Gynecomastia typically occurs when there is a hormonal imbalance in men. Breast tissue may grow larger than normal, and sometimes unevenly on the body. Early cases of gynecomastia may go away during puberty, but if it’s still an issue in adulthood, breast reduction can help.

During this procedure, excess breast tissue is removed and the upper body is corrected to create a smoother, flatter chest. If left untreated, gynecomastia can result in drooping breasts and discomfort, especially as weight changes and the body ages.  View our before and after gallery.

Facial and Neck Treatments

Over time, men may experience sagging in the neck and jowl areas as they age. With today’s economy moving to a hybrid work model, it’s important to look fresh and “Zoom ready” in business meetings, and different facial procedures can help tighten one’s appearance and improve looks. Popular facial cosmetic surgeries for men include:

  • Sidelaze – A laser energy that tightens up the skin in the neck and better defines the jowls.
  • Rhinoplasty – Better known as the nose job, rhinoplasty can remove imperfections and better shape the nose
  • Cervical Z-Plasty – May be an option for select patients to address neck waddle deformity.
  • Face/Neck Lift – Treats the lower face, cheeks, and mandibular


Removal of fat tissue is a common procedure overall, and for men it is especially advantageous. Liposuction can help flatten the abdomen in time for summers at the beach, and also help tone upper arms and other body parts with visible “pouching.”
