Plastic surgery for men is a growing field and the trend has been steadily and significantly increasing since 2000. Cosmetic surgery can help improve self-image and confidence or might help one feel more competitive in today’s job market. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Silberg can help you find a solution to whatever troubles you about your appearance. Here we set forth the most popular surgical, non-surgical and surgical procedures for a man’s face, breast and body, as well as skin care and sun screen solutions for men.
Facial Procedures for Men
Dr. Silberg offers a full range of surgical and non-surgical facial procedures: KYBELLA, dermal fillers and BOTOX, eyelid surgery, face lift, neck lift, rhinoplasty and facial implants. Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Silberg to explore what you need to achieve the look you want.
KYBELLA® – An extremely effective non-surgical solution for the elimination of a double chin. No more tight collars or neck ties. KYBELLA® is FDA-approved to eliminate mild to severe submental fat, or double chin, and each treatment consists of a group of injections over a 15-20 period. Most patients require between two and four sessions, scheduled one month apart. KYBELLA® does not resolve the appearance of excess skin. If your double chin includes excess loose skin, you may want to consider a lower rhytidectomy (neck lift). Learn more about KYBELLA® at Dr. Silberg’s office in Santa Rosa.
Dermal Fillers & BOTOX® There are many non-surgical options for reversing the signs of aging without the need for surgery. BOTOX® can be used to decrease frown lines and fine wrinkles around the eyes (“crows feet”). Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to the skin through tiny injections, reducing deep creases, and smoothing facial folds and wrinkles in the areas around the mouth and eyes. Dr. Silberg’s office offers BOTOX® and Restylane fillers for men and women. Learn more about Dermal Fillers and BOTOX® at Dr. Silberg’s Santa Rosa office.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepahroplasty) – Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for men. As we grow older, the first signs of aging often appear around the eyes with the development of wrinkles, droopy eyelids or bags under the eyes. By removing excess skin and fatty tissue, the eyes can be rejuvenated to create a dramatically more youthful appearance. Learn more about eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) at Dr. Silberg’s office.
Facelift (Rhytidectomy) – A facelift, or rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure to improve the signs of aging by removing unwanted wrinkles, sagging skin, or deep creases in the face below the eyes and neck. It is sometimes accompanied by other procedures, such as a browlift or eyelid surgery. A facelift does not change the fundamental appearance, but does restore a more youthful look. However, no one wants to look “done” and that requires a skilled surgeon like Dr. Silberg. Facelifts for men are very different than for women. A man’s face has different skin thickness and vascularity. Incision placement may be different. The desired result and expectations are different for men than for women and, for most, it is important to maintain that ruggedness and masculinity. Dr. Silberg is a skilled surgeon with over 30 years experience performing facelifts on men and women. Learn more about facelifts at Dr. Silberg’s accredited surgical facility.
Neck Lift (Lower Rhytidectomy) – Age, gravity, genetics and stress are all factors that can cause facial contours to change, which might include the formation of excess skin and fat under the chin and around the neck area. This is sometimes referred to as a “double chin” or “turkey neck.” If this is the only part of the face that is not pleasing to a patient, then a Neck Lift, or Lower Rhytidectomy, would be an appropriate solution to remove the excess skin and fat tissue under the chin and restore a firmer more youthful appearance. Dr. Silberg has more than 30 years experience doing facelifts and neck lifts on men and women. Learn more about neck lifts at Dr. Silberg’s Santa Rosa facility.
Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery) – The goal of rhinoplasty is to achieve a natural appearance with balance. Sometimes very subtle changes can result in the desired effect and the surgeon must have both an artistic sense as well as the technical skill to accomplish this. Improving the proportions and the appearance of your nose can have a tremendous positive impact on your self confidence. Some of the more common corrections made with rhinoplasty include adjusting the width of the bridge of the nose, straightening a crooked nose, reducing a hump, modifying a bulbous tip, or correcting exaggerated nasal flares, asymmetry or an upturned nose. Even small changes can make a huge difference to a person’s profile. Learn more about Rhinoplasty at Dr. Silberg’s surgical facility.
Chin Surgery (Mentoplasty) – Chin surgery, or mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure to modify the size and shape of the chin. Chin size or shape can be enhanced with an implant or reduce the size of a chin in order to establish balance to facial features. It is often done in combination with a rhinoplasty to achieve facial proportion. Chin surgery, whether combined with a rhinoplasty or not, can make a dramatic difference to the facial profile. Learn more about facial implants at Dr. Silberg’s Santa Rosa office.
Breast Surgery for Men
Gynecomastia is a common condition of enlarged breasts in boys and men. It is estimated that up to 50% of men in the United States experience some degree of gynecomastia in their lifetime.
Male Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammoplasty) – Gynecomastia can be caused by genetic factors, hormones, aging, excess weight, medications, or other reasons. A male breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) is the most effective known treatment for gynecomastia. With this procedure, excess fat and glandular tissue is removed resulting in a firmer more masculine chest contour. Gynecomastia surgery can also be used to treat enlarged or puffy nipples.

Liposuction – a cosmetic procedure for removing excess fat from under the skin. As we age, fat can accumulate in areas around the stomach, flanks (“love handles”), breast area, neck and chin. Liposuction can be a solution to removing these excess areas of fat. The areas of fat beneath the skin are often firmer and more vascular than in women, making men excellent candidates for liposuction. Dr. Silberg uses The HydraSolve® Lipoplasty System, which is a gentle and non-destructive liposuction technology. Instead of cutting and shearing, HydraSolve® liquefies fat tissue, and only the fat tissue. HydraSolve® does not liquefy or harm non-targeted tissues such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. Learn more about liposuction at Dr. Silberg’s office.
Abdominoplasty – a surgical procedure where excess skin and fatty tissue is removed while tightening the underlying muscle. Men with good skin elasticity and only moderate amounts of excess abdominal fat may benefit from liposuction alone. But for larger amounts of excess fat, an abdominoplasty may be a more appropriate option. Some men may have hanging abdominal skin, often the result of massive weight loss, or loose abdominal muscles. An abdominoplasty is a major surgical procedure, but the results are dramatic. Excess fat is removed, there is tightening of the abdominal wall and the waistline is trimmed. The result is a more masculine well-defined profile. Learn more about abdominoplasty at Dr. Silberg’s Santa Rosa office.
Skin Care for Men
Men need to protect their skin from the elements just as much as women do and can benefit from good skin care. Dr. Silberg carries a full range of high-quality medical grade Obagi® skin care products and sun screen geared for every day wear and for outdoor activities.
Obagi® Medical Grade Skin Care Products & Sun Screen – Men need to protect their skin from the elements just as much as women do and can benefit from good skin care. If you are concerned about the signs of aging, you do not want to overlook one of the most important things that men can do to enhance their appearance, which is to take good care of your skin. This, of course, would include application of a good quality sunscreen. Men over 50 are at a much higher risk of developing melanoma than the general population so protection from the sun is critical. Dr. Silberg’s office offers a full line of Obagi® medical-grade skin care products, including cleansers, toners, exfoliants, and moisturizers. The Obagi® product line also includes sun screens that provide a defense against harmful UV rays for everyday wear and for outdoor activities. Men may be interested in starting a routine of reversing the signs of sun damage and aging with the Obagi Nu-Derm® System. The Nu-Derm® System is designed to systematically transform the appearance of skin and help minimize the signs of aging and prevent further skin damage.
