What is Male Plastic Surgery?

No matter the reason, New Orleans Plastic Surgery in Louisiana is excited to design a tailored treatment plan that aligns with your cosmetic goals.

"Dr Eagan did my breast aug in March 2020. I searched for months before selecting a doctor and the reason I chose her is because her personality is outstanding!! She is by far the kindest doctor I have ever met!!! She is not a doctor that will put too much on your body if your body can not handle it. I told her what I wanted and she went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with my results! I am 4 months post op and I swear I fall in love with my procedure results all over again every single day! We are already discussing lip injections because she is just absolutely fantastic! Always available when I needed her and every appointment she has always greeted me as a friend and made sure I had a great appointment!! Wish I could give more stars to her!! Make sure to check her out because you will NOT regret it"- S.S. / Google / Jul 23, 2020
"Life changing I’ve been trying to get a breast reduction since 2018 and the moment I walked into Dr.Eagan’s office it just felt right. Dr.Eagan is truly the kindest person I’ve ever met. She explained the process of the surgery and post op care. One of the most important things is she cared about what cup size I wanted and she delivered. I went from a F cup to a B /C cup which is exactly what I wanted. Also Dr.Eagan called me the night before and the night after surgery to check on me. When I show people my before and after pictures all they can say is “Wow! What’s the Doctor’s name? Seriously, my back pain is gone and I feel more comfortable with exercising, sleeping, and wearing different clothing. Also, Miss. Yvonne is the sweetest she worked diligently to make sure all my documentation was in order to send to my insurance for approval and explained any questions or concerns I had regarding payment. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon that will provide excellent quality and has great bedside manner. Dr.Eagan is your person. Dr.Eagan and her staff are truly professional and amazing 10/10 highly recommend🙌🏾"- B.L. / Google / Mar 11, 2023

She also has wonderful bedside manner! I 100% recommend her to any friend or family member and will continue to use her services!"- M.F. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2023
"Dr. Eagan was extremely pleasant as well as her staff! Dr Eagan made sure I was very well prepared for my surgery. Everything was well planned and organized. All the workers at the hospital made me feel so safe and calm being that I was very scared. I haven’t felt 1 ounce of pain since I had my surgery on yesterday and very little discomfort jus like dr Eagan promised. I initially didn’t want any photos posted but when I saw how amazing dr Eagan did on my breast reduction I really wanted her to post them! My reaction was like you wouldn’t believe, I was so excited! I highly recommend dr Eagan."- L.H. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2023
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
Men set ideal body standards for themselves just like women. From male celebrities to athletes, we know these things can impact our perception. To help you look and feel more comfortable, we provide pectoral, deltoid, or calf augmentation with fat transfer or implants. If you want to enhance the appearance of your chest, shoulders, or calves, these procedures can address your cosmetic concerns. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will complete an assessment and listen to your goals to determine if these procedures are right for you. If so, we will design a personalized treatment plan based on your needs.
What is your Surgical Technique?
At New Orleans Plastic Surgery, we can perform one or combine all of these procedures. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will create a treatment plan that outlines your treatment choices and cosmetic goals. All of these procedures will require general anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable.
Calf Augmentation with Implants or Fat Transfer
If you want to improve the size of your calves, we can insert implants or perform fat grafting. For silicone implants, we will use a submuscular or subfascial technique. These determine where to place the implant. The incisions for a calf augmentation with implants will go behind the knee. If you prefer the fat transfer method, we use liposuction to extract fat from the stomach or thighs and place it into a centrifuge for purification. Next, the fat is injected into your calves.
Shoulder implants can add more definition to your deltoids. At the beginning of your procedure, we will create an incision near the deltoid muscle. Next, Dr. Eagan makes a surgical pocket that holds the implant in place. Once the silicone implant is inserted, we close the incision with sutures.
Chest augmentation for men enhances the appearance of the "pecs." We start the procedure by making an incision near the armpit and creating a surgical pocket within the pectoral muscle. Next, Dr. Eagan carefully places the implant and closes your incisions.
What should I Expect after?
Each procedure will require some recovery time, and the length depends on the type of surgery. After your treatment, you may return home to recover; however, you will need a responsible adult to drive you home. For the next couple of weeks, you will experience soreness near the treatment sites. To help with the discomfort, patients can use cold compresses or over-the-counter medication. If you undergo a calf augmentation with fat transfer, please keep in mind that you will have two areas to care for – the incision for your liposuction and the ones behind your knees. After your procedure, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions.
What Is the Cost of Male Plastic Surgery?
The cost of your procedure is based on what treatments we use or combine. If you select all three, it will cost more. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan can go over your cosmetic goals and create a surgical plan that meets your needs. Typically, your costs are based on the type of anesthesia, facility fees, and surgical techniques. When considering surgery, we highly recommend looking at the experience of the cosmetic surgeon over the cost. To help make it easier to afford, we offer payment plans and financing options. We will discuss this information after developing a detailed surgical plan.
Male Plastic Surgery FAQs
What types of male cosmetic surgery do most men get?
The most commonly performed men's plastic surgery procedures include muscle augmentation (calves, pecs, delts), facelifts, liposuction, male breast reduction (gynecomastia surgery), and rhinoplasty (nose jobs).
Are there other male cosmetic surgery options than implants?
Yes, there are. In addition to the latest silicone implants, Dr. Eagan also performs fat transfers. A fat transfer offers excellent benefits to enhance your appearance by using your own fat harvest from one part of your body and put into another. This gives you a more natural enhancement option with the added benefit of removing stubborn unwanted fat in problem areas. During your consultation, Dr. Eagan will explain the different treatment options and then help you create the right plan for your goals.
How long is recovery after a men's plastic surgery procedure?
Recovery times will depend on what procedure you're having, your health, and other factors. In general, most men will recover over about 3 – 6 weeks. Dr. Eagan, or a member of her team, will give you detailed aftercare instructions to speed healing and improve results.
How long does a men's silicone implant last?
Most silicone implants can last up to about 10 – 20 years before you may need a consultation with Dr. Eagan to discuss replacement or removal.
