Calf Augmentation

Underdeveloped calves can not only affect leg contour, but they can lead to reduced self-esteem in men as well. For these patients, calf augmentation is recommended to make the lower and upper legs proportionate, and to restore a more masculine aesthetic. Calf augmentation can also be used to improve the appearance of cosmetic irregularities due to congenital defects or injury. While this procedure is relatively new, it is quickly becoming a popular cosmetic surgery for men. Learn more.


Excessive male breast tissue – a condition called gynecomastia – can leave men looking for solutions that diet and exercise can’t provide. If you feel concerned and embarrassed about pronounced breasts, cosmetic surgery can restore a more masculine chest contour. This condition is successfully treated using either liposuction, surgical excision, or a combination of both to eliminate excess breast tissue.

Pectoral Augmentation

Dr. Michael Epstein uses pectoral implants that look and feel like natural muscle tissue to enhance chest appearance. These subtle enhancements provide male patients with the confidence they need to go shirtless at the gym or by the pool.

FAQs about Plastic Surgery for Men

What anesthesia do I need for a male breast reduction?

At MAE, we use local anesthesia and IV sedation administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist for this procedure. We perform the treatment at our state-of-the-art surgical center for comfort and quick recovery.

Who are ideal candidates for male breast reduction?

Men who are affected psychologically and physically by enlarged breasts, are in good health, and have achievable goals are good candidates for this procedure.

What can calf augmentation do for me?

Implants can define and reshape the legs, and they can make them look more masculine. Symmetry and overall body shape are also enhanced. Some men simply have thin or underdeveloped leg muscles and want an improved shape for their lower legs, but this procedure can also correct leg shape irregularities developed after serious injury or genetic defect.

When can I expect results from my procedure?

Surgical results will vary from patient to patient and depend on the procedure. Each treatment we offer creates some bruising and swelling. You should notice improvement after the swelling subsides, usually after two weeks. Full results can usually be seen after a few months.

What about scarring?

All surgery leaves scars, but in the case of plastic surgery for men, our incisions are performed in inconspicuous areas, so they shouldn’t be noticeable once they are healed.
