Over the years Mr Karidis has seen a dramatic increase in the number of men undergoing cosmetic surgery as men become more aware of the way they look.
When considering cosmetic surgery for men, slightly different approaches and techniques need to be considered, as there are a number of differences in comparison to women. The two obvious differences are the anatomical proportions and the overall appearance.
Other considerations are that the skin quality of a man is usually thicker and also, in the face, there is hair bearing skin which needs to be taken into consideration whenever any facial work is undertaken, i.e. in a Face lift, Mid Face lift, Blepharoplasy etc scar placement is different from a woman.
When considering the outcome of a procedure which involves surgery to a man’s face it is very important not to feminise the features of the man, this takes skill and experience.
Many times the tissue in a man is not only thicker, heavier and tougher to work on (more fibrous as we say or containing more gristle) and therefore requires increased levels of effort from the surgeon to achieve a satisfactory outcome.
When considering cosmetic surgery to the body areas in treatments such as Abdominoplasty and Liposuction, the distribution of fat in a man is different. For example there is not much of a trend for liposuction to the thighs or bottom whereas many women opt for this type of surgery. As men tend to carry excess fat mainly in the abdomen, a large number of men opt for tummy tucks and liposuction in this area and sometimes combine these treatments with the Gynaecomastia procedure.
Mr Karidis is renowned for his success with Gynaecomastia (man boob) procedure. This type of cosmetic procedure specifically targeting a concern that many men have with their body has become increasingly popular with men of all ages.
The procedures that Mr Karidis regularly performs on men are listed below with a link to further information about them. Some procedures can be performed together however this will be discussed at your consultation with Mr Karidis.
