Plastic Surgery For Men In Northern Virgina

Love Your Appearance

Like women, men want to look younger and achieve their best appearance. Since the composition of a man’s body is so different from a woman’s, although the same procedures are used, the goal of surgery may be quite different. Dr. Ghaznavi will tailor your cosmetic procedures to fit your body’s specific needs.

Plastic Surgery Options For Men In Herndon, VA

Looking your best and feeling confident about your appearance can help you gain an edge in both personal and professional areas of your life. If there’s something about your appearance you would like to improve, cosmetic surgery can be a safe and effective way to achieve your goals.

Body Sculpting

Even with a healthy diet and exercise, most men tend to carry around a little extra fat. Unfortunately, this extra fat tends to be more noticeable on men’s bodies than women’s bodies, as women’s bodies are naturally more contoured. If your current physique doesn’t reflect the man you are, Dr. Ghaznavi can help you achieve a body shape that looks and feels more masculine. Sculpting your body can help you achieve more naturally masculine contours with minimal downtime.

Where To Have Body Sculpting

Body sculpting can be performed on:

  • Thighs
  • Hips and buttocks
  • Abdomen and waist
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Inner knee
  • Chest area
  • Cheeks, chin and neck
  • Calves and ankles

The Procedure

Liposuction is one of the most effective methods for body sculpting men’s torsos. In some cases, Dr. Ghaznavi may use laser technology to sculpt the torso—and with some patients, reveal six-pack abs underneath this extra layer of fat.

Weight loss or gain, among other factors, can get in the way of the toned, sculpted look you are aiming for, and you might notice more accumulation of fat around the abdomen and chest areas. In most cases, liposuction alone can effectively tone any problem areas. While fat is generally more noticeable in men than in women, liposuction tends to be more effective with men. This is because men have more skin elasticity than women. Liposuction can also be performed in conjunction with other procedures, such as breast reduction, fat transfer or a tummy tuck.

Male Body Sculpting Before and After

Male Breast Reduction

Seventy percent of adolescents and middle-aged men have feminine-looking chests, which can cause both physical and emotional discomfort. Physically, extra tissue in the breasts can lead to poor posture and back pain. Emotionally, men may desire to look and feel more masculine. This condition can occur to men at any age due to obesity, hormonal changes, genetics or the use of certain drugs. Male breast reduction can remove excess tissue in the breasts and give men a flatter, more masculine chest.

Most men desire a chest that is broad and flat. Even with diet and exercise, some men still are unable to achieve desired results without surgical intervention. Breast reduction surgery for men removes excess fat and breast tissue, contouring a man’s chest and giving them a more masculine appearance.


The breast reduction procedure involves a small incision on each side of the chest and liposuction. Through these incisions, your surgeon will remove excess fat and glandular tissue, at the same time sculpting a new chest contour that looks natural to your body. Your surgeon will place incisions to make the resulting scars as inconspicuous as possible. More severe cases may require the removal of excess tissue to achieve optimal results.


The recovery process following breast reduction may include soreness and some swelling. Many men return to work or school within several days of the procedure, but vigorous exercise is typically restricted for about three weeks.


After surgery, you should notice an immediate improvement in the shape and appearance of your chest. Since the excess fat, glandular tissue and skin that were removed are gone for good. The results are permanent. However, significant weight gain or steroid use could result in a recurrence. Your surgeon will advise you on what to do to maintain your results for the long term.

Fat Transfer

A fat transfer procedure takes fat from another part of the body and injects it into a more desired area to increase volume and fullness. It can enhance specific areas of the body while removing unwanted excess fat from others. Structural fat grafting can make several different cosmetic improvements in males.

By designating specific areas for fat removal and transferring them to other parts of the body, Dr. Ghaznavi can enhance specific areas of the body while sculpting other areas.

Fat Is
Removed From:

  • Thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Back

Fat Is
Transferred To:

  • Shoulders
  • Pectorals
  • Biceps
  • Triceps
  • Glutes
  • Calves
  • Face

The Procedure

Fat is harvested during a liposuction procedure and injected into other areas for enhancement.

As men age, areas of the face may begin to look hollow or sunken. This is because as we age, our natural collagen production decreases. When our collagen production decreases, so do the fat in our face. This causes the skin to sit closer to the muscles of the face, revealing expression lines and wrinkles. A facial fat transfer is a great way to restore volume in the face, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give men a more youthful appearance. During this procedure, Dr. Ghaznavi will extract fat from an area of the body where it is not wanted, and inject it into the face to add volume.

Neck Lift

Wrinkled skin in the neck is a common sign of aging. Additionally, the neck can carry extra fat deposits and loose skin, giving the appearance of a “double chin” in men that are not overweight. Neck lift surgery is an effective way to help with the sagging skin along the front of the neck or below the chin.

At AMG Plastic Surgery, Dr. Ghaznavi understands that plastic surgery for men differs from women. Using a neck lift procedure, he can tighten excess skin while maintaining a masculine appearance.

What A Neck Lift Does

A neck lift can make men look younger by:

  • Tightening excess, sagging skin
  • Improving the look of wrinkles and creases
  • Minimizing the appearance of vertical bands
  • Reducing jowls and excess volume on the neck

Recovery and Results

It may take some time to fully recover and see your final results after a neck lift. However, many patients can return to work in about two weeks and resume other activities in approximately three to four weeks. Following surgery, you may experience swelling and bruising. Your final result should not only provide a more youthful and rested appearance but will boost your confidence.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is used to minimize bags on the lower eyelid and remove excess skin from the upper lid. Sometimes sagging eyelids impact vision. Other times, they can make you look older than you are. Eyelid surgery can create a younger, more refreshed look.

Drooping upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids can make you look older than you are or cause people to ask if you are tired, upset or sick. Eyelid surgery can return your drooping, puffy eyelids to a more youthful appearance and improve how others see you. Eyelid surgery can be performed in conjunction with other procedures.

Benefits Of Eyelid Surgery

In addition to restoring a more refreshed appearance, eyelid surgery can:

  • Minimize dark circles under the eye
  • Improve vision
  • Minimize under-eye bags
  • Boost self-confidence
  • Take years off your age

Types of Eyelid Lift Surgery

Eyelid lift surgery may include upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, or both.

  • Upper Eyelid Surgery

    During upper eyelid surgery, an incision is made in the natural crease above the eye, through which the surgeon will remove excess skin and fat and adjust the surrounding muscles to make the desired improvements.

  • Lower Eyelid Surgery

    Generally, incisions are made on the outer edge of the lower eyelid, just beneath the eyelashes or inside the eyelid. The surgeon will remove or reposition fat to create a smooth, natural contour beneath the eyelid. Sometimes excess skin may be removed, or the lower eyelid muscle may be tightened to provide the most natural, effective results.

What To Expect

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure that lasts from 45 minutes to 2 hours. During the first one or two weeks after eyelid surgery, patients commonly have some visible bruising and swelling, and their eyelids may feel unusually tight. Most patients report feeling soreness relieved using cold compresses and keeping the head elevated.

Keeping Your Results Looking Their Best

Although we can’t stop the aging process, your results will age naturally with you. If you wish to touch up your eye lift at any point and maintain a youthful appearance, we offer Botox, dermal fillers and skin resurfacing.

Facelift In Herndon, Virginia

Age-related changes to the face are normal, such as loose skin, jowls, and deep wrinkles, but rejuvenating your appearance with a cosmetic procedure can boost your confidence. Some issues are easily treated with minimally invasive procedures like fillers and peels, but other things like loose skin and deep wrinkles often require more extensive treatment like a facelift.

While facelifts are more common in women, this does not mean that men cannot also benefit from this procedure! In fact, 1 in 10 patients who undergo a facelift procedure is a man. A facelift eases signs of aging in your face and neck. It tightens sagging skin and smooths deep folds.

What a Facelift Does

A facelift improves visible signs of aging in the face, such as:

  • Sagging in the cheek and midface
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Deep wrinkles that extend from the nose to the corner of the mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or is displaced creating jowls along the jawline
  • Breakdown of muscle tone in the lower face, leading to sagging skin

How Is A Facelift Done?

The procedure begins with incisions carefully placed inside the hairline at the temple and extending down along the ear’s natural curve. The surgeon will remove and reconfigure fat and tissue from under the skin, reshaping the face. Once the underlying structure and support are redefined, any excess skin is removed, and the incisions are closed.

A facelift may not stop the aging process, but it does create a younger appearance. If you look ten years younger after a facelift, it will take about ten years or more for your face to age back to the preoperative condition.

Procedures Often Done With A Facelift

Depending on your desired outcome, a facelift may be combined with other procedures to rejuvenate the face. These procedures include a brow lift, eyelid surgery, neck lift or skin resurfacing. Nonsurgical rejuvenation treatments will complement the results of surgery.

Recovery and Results

A patient will typically experience swelling and bruising during the recovery period and must keep their head elevated to promote the healing process. Dr. Ghaznavi will follow up for the first few weeks to monitor your recovery, remove stitches, clean incision sites and change bandages when necessary. Generally, patients can resume normal activities after two to three weeks. Everyone heals at different rates, so listen to your body and Dr. Ghaznavi before doing too much.

Brow Lift

As men age, it is normal for the forehead to begin to sag and develop wrinkles. The skin and muscles of the forehead can become stretched and sag, making the eye area and forehead droop. A brow lift is a surgical procedure that can restore a more youthful, bright appearance.

A brow lift procedure lifts the brows, removes excess fatty tissues and tightens any sagging skin in the forehead to create a more rejuvenated look that still appears natural and retains the masculinity of the facial features.

The Procedure

A brow lift on a man is done slightly differently than on a woman. The brow is not lifted as high because men’s brows tend to hang lower and have less of an arch. Dr. Ghaznavi will also pay close attention to male hair loss patterns since incisions for brow lift on women are made covertly along the hairline, something that might not be suitable in the long term for many men who do not want their receding hairline to later reveal visible scars. Alternatively, the surgeon may make cuts that stay hidden more easily above the ears. Further, for men with a receding hairline, Dr. Ghaznavi may perform the procedure to lift the brow and move the hairline forward simultaneously, allowing for a shorter hairline that appears fuller.

Key Benefits Of A Brow Lift

  • Lifted eyebrows
  • Tightened excess forehead skin
  • Removal of excess skin
  • Improvement of wrinkles between the eyes
  • Smoothed forehead wrinkles
  • Elevated brow line
  • Repair of sagging upper eyelids


A male brow lift is typically performed as an outpatient procedure. In most cases, the expected downtime is around 10 to 14 days. After this period, patients can usually return to their normal day-to-day activities.

It is normal for patients to experience some discomfort, swelling and bruising. These symptoms should subside after a few weeks, and can be managed by taking prescribed medications and following all post-operative instructions.

Body Implants

Our diet and exercise regimen, genetics and anatomy all contribute to our overall physique and appearance. Some patients work hard at diet, exercise and weight lifting but are still not able to build or define certain body parts. The most commonly affected areas in men include the chest or pectoral muscles, the calves or buttocks.

Most men desire to look muscular and toned. However, even with a healthy diet and exercise, it is hard to get desired results. Body implants can help men get a muscular, toned look in their biceps, pectorals, calves and more.

Natural-Looking Implants

Over the years, the number of designs and shapes of male body implants has increased dramatically. Implants can even be customized for a specific patient. This variety of implants ensures that we can get an implant that fits your particular body and gives you the natural and proportional result you want. Male body implants can be further shaped and refined during surgery to give you a very natural-looking result.

Body Implant Procedure

Implants are usually made of semi-solid silicone and are surgically placed either under the muscle lining or in the muscle itself. This procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Ghaznavi will make incisions in the armpit, knee fold or crease of the buttocks, depending on the area in which the implants will go. The goal of these incisions is to make scars unnoticeable and inconspicuous. Once the incisions have been made, Dr. Ghaznavi will place the implant in the desired area, and carefully close the wounds.

Recovery After Body Implants

Following the procedure, you will immediately be able to see results. To facilitate healing, you will be placed in a supportive compression garment or stockings, and pain can be managed with prescription painkillers, followed by over-the-counter pain medications. After two weeks, most patients can resume light exercise can be resumed by two weeks, but more strenuous activity should be avoided until six weeks after the initial procedure.
