Cosmetic plastic surgery for men is very different from women; however, the goal for a natural result is the same. Not all plastic surgeons have the expertise necessary to differentiate the surgical techniques needed for the masculine outcome required for men. After 30+ years of experience, Dr. Delgado stands above the rest. His patients’ testimonies support his keen eye and surgical abilities to deliver their unique aesthetic goals.


Male plastic surgery has become more common; many are seeking aesthetic refinement as competition in the workforce continues to escalate. Also, many men need a boost in self-confidence as they may return to the dating scene.

Below are several cosmetic procedures Dr. Delgado offers for men at our practice. If you are interested in male plastic surgery, we encourage you to read the sections below, follow the links for more information. Dr. Delgado is happy to help you achieve the look you desire.

The Daddy-Do-Over is the male version of the popular Mommy Makeover. Instead of just one surgical procedure, it is a combination of treatments to return a man’s body to a pre-family shape.

Even though men do not go through the physical changes women do after childbirth, fathers who juggle a busy career and family life find their bodies changing. Sometimes the look is referred to as the “dad bod”. Natural aging, less time for exercise, and maybe not the best eating habits can contribute to body changes for men.


Fat may be settling in the abdomen, love handles, chest, and back. Some men who have managed to lose a significant amount of weight might find they now have excessive hanging skin. It is not unusual for men to combine such procedures as a tummy tuck, liposuction, male breast reduction, and perhaps even a nose job or eyelid lift. Dr. Delgado tailors the combination to the unique needs of each patient. The extent of the surgery will depend on the patient’s health and the particular treatments being performed. With typically only one recovery period, this can save a lot of time for the man with a busy schedule; in addition, the costs will most likely be somewhat less.

Building Facade


Gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, is a common condition in our society. Many men and boys have significant issues associated with their gynecomastia (also termed “man boobs”), causing them extreme embarrassment. For males suffering from this condition, gynecomastia surgery can be truly life-changing. Instead of hiding under bulky clothing, they can wear tight shirts and even go shirtless, with a new sense of confidence. Gynecomastia surgery is one of Dr. Delgado’s main specialties. Seeing the need early in his career for treating this condition, he paid close attention to the unique challenge of reducing men’s breasts.

Through the years, Dr. Delgado has developed techniques specific to gynecomastia that few other surgeons utilize. Unfortunately, today, many surgeons still attempt to reduce the male breast by liposuction alone.

Dr. Delgado’s expertise in all aspects of gynecomastia makes him one of the most sought-after specialists for male breast reduction. He takes on the most complicated cases, frequently receiving referrals from other surgeons. In addition, he is the owner and Medical Director of the most popular informational website on gynecomastia,


Cosmetic surgery of the male face can be very powerful and is truly an art form. The male facelift and neck lift needs to be addressed in a very different manner than for women—the shorter (and sometimes receding) male hairline, facial hair growth, and natural facial lines must be respected. Most importantly, the goal is for subtle enhancement without feminization. This results in a more youthful jawline, reduced jowls, and tighter facial and neck skin and musculature. Ultimately, a male facelift and neck lift performed by Dr. Delgado can turn the clock back years with incredibly natural-looking results.

One of the first signs of aging in males is the eyes. Men’s eyes are very expressive, and the strong facial muscles create expression lines. This is often attractive in men, but when the eyelid skin becomes too heavy, and the lower eyelid bags begin to show, a notable appearance of aging, stress, and exhaustion can be created. 

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) tailored for males by Dr. Delgado can help minimize puffy eyelids, lax skin, under-eye bags, and dark circles. Careful excision of excess skin, repositioning some fat that reinforcing the anatomical structure of surrounding eye tissue help to create a more youthful appearance.

In addition, removing excess skin from the upper eyelids may improve peripheral vision. After recovery, Dr. Delgado’s male blepharoplasty patients look more refreshed and well-rested. Best of all, the results are often so natural that most people do not know that anything has been “done” unless the patient chooses to share it with them.


Liposuction is one of the most popular male cosmetic surgical procedures. In many cases, no matter how much dieting or exercise is done, men tend to find that stubborn pockets of fat remain—particularly in the abdomen and flanks (“love handles”). Other common areas of excess fat in males include the chest, below the chin (“double chin”), and back.

Male liposuction can remove persistent fat bulges that prove resistant to diet and exercise in virtually any region of the body. Advances in technique and technology allow Dr. Delgado to carefully sculpt the physique that many men desire using a tiny cannula inserted through a small incision that, over time, heals to be almost invisible. There is much confusion for patients regarding the many names and claims of different liposuction devices—these are just marketing ploys. The most important consideration for male liposuction is selecting a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon; it is the surgeon behind the instrument, not the instrument itself.



Rhinoplasty, also known as a “nose job,” is in the top five aesthetic surgical procedures performed on men. It is essential that the male nose is not reduced too much and that a masculine look is retained. Less experienced surgeons, or ones who mostly do rhinoplasties on women, may leave the patient with an overdone or feminine-appearing nose.

Many men complain that their noses are too big or too small. Noses may also be deformed from an accident or injury, or they were just born that way.

Male rhinoplasty surgery can create symmetry and balance, improving a man’s overall facial appearance. If there are malformations of the nasal cavity, men may also be bothered by breathing difficulties, excessive snoring, sleep apnea, or other medical conditions. Rhinoplasty surgery, combined with other procedures, can also provide relief from these issues by restructuring the inner nose.

The main goal for a male rhinoplasty is a natural result that does not significantly change a man’s appearance. After surgery, Dr. Delgado’s patients claim that they now sleep better, breathe easier, and improve their self-confidence.
