What are some common plastic surgery procedures for men?

Blepharoplasty, neck lifts, facelifts, liposuction for men, hair transplants, and mentoplasty/chin augmentation are all standard plastic surgery procedures at Santa Barbara Body Sculpting for men. He also offers Awake Liposuction to his male patients.

Dr. Giuffrida is also the only doctor in the Santa Barbara area that offers Awake Liposuction — a procedure that allows you to remain conscious during the operation. This ensures a desirable outcome for you, as you can communicate with him throughout the procedure.  

What is a neck lift?

A neck lift, also called a lower rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure that can make the neck and jawline look youthful. Neck lifts can improve the appearance of your neck and jaw by removing:

  • Excess fat and relax skin in the lower face to eliminate unsightly jowls
  • Excess fatty deposits under the chin
  • Loose skin at the neck
  • Skin banding in the neck

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty improves the appearance of your eyelids and can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower lids, or both. Dr. Giuffrida uses blepharoplasty to improve the appearance of your eyelids as well as their function (if they're drooping). And no matter why you have the procedure, it can help the area around your eyes look younger by eliminating:

  • Bags under your eyes
  • Fatty deposits in the eyelids that can make them look puffy
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

What is mentoplasty?

Mentoplasty is the medical term for augmenting your chin, either by reshaping it or making your chin smaller. The procedure can also better define your jaw for an even more handsome look. Either fillers or implants can augment the chin, and your new look is immediate.

The procedure is fast and takes just about an hour. Dr. Giuffrida makes the incision inside your mouth, so you won’t have visible scarring. Dr. Giuffrida makes a pocket for the implant or filler and positions it in. You go home the same day, both looking and feeling great.


Is plastic surgery right for me?

Plastic surgery is right for any man who wishes he could look better. Plastic surgery can build your confidence and make you feel great about yourself and how you look. Dr. Giuffrida can talk to you about the benefits of a variety of plastic surgery options that are right for you.
