Plastic Surgery for Men in Jupiter, FL
We all experience the effects of time, stress and aging. Many men are uncomfortable or embarrassed about the idea of plastic surgery, even though the solutions to their self-confidence are readily available. It is possible to look and feel your best. Located in Jupiter, FL, Koger Cosmetic Clinic and Medspa led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Koger, performs plastic surgery for men for Palm Beach County residents, including West Palm Beach, Vero Beach and Wellington.
What is Plastic Surgery for Men?
Plastic surgery for men includes a variety of procedures which directly address men’s issues. This includes the removal of excess fat, the insertion of cartilage and removal of excess skin after weight loss. Adjusting your appearance to boost your self-esteem, correcting the signs of aging or rejuvenating your appearance are all possible through plastic surgery designed for men and tailored to your specific needs.
The Best Candidates for Plastic Surgery for Men
The best candidates for plastic surgery procedures for men include patients who are healthy and have realistic expectations for the results of their surgery. Each procedure may have slightly different requirements. Most procedures are recommended for men from 40-65 years old. It may be appropriate to have surgery at a younger or older age than this, depending on the procedure. Surgery involving removing excess skin or tightening the skin requires a certain level of skin elasticity. The ability to dedicate your recovery time is also a key factor in considering plastic surgery.
Planning Your Plastic Surgery
If you are considering plastic surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Koger. He will honestly and openly discuss your needs and goals. Together, you will create a plan that combines your goals with the most effective surgery. Be sure to ask Dr. Koger any questions you have about your procedure, the recovery period or what to expect for results. You will be much happier with the result if you have realistic expectations and understand that you may not see results immediately after your surgery. The body takes time to heal and in time, you will enjoy the improvements.
Preparing for Your Plastic Surgery
You may want to have someone accompany you to the procedure to drive you home afterwards. It may also be helpful to have some help in the first several days afterwards. Preparing for your procedure may involve adjusting any medications you are taking. Dr. Koger often requests patients stop smoking for two weeks before the appointment to ensure the skin is very elastic and ready for the procedure.
Once you have your surgical plan, Dr. Koger will go over any specific things you need to do to prepare for your surgery.
Types of Anesthesia
Most plastic surgery procedures for men are conducted under general anesthesia. Each procedure is unique and some patients may be better suited for local anesthesia. Dr. Koger will discuss your surgical choices and evaluate the best type of anesthesia for your procedure.
Plastic Surgery Procedures

After Your Plastic Surgery
Most plastic surgery procedures are outpatient, and you will be able to go home the same day. You will have specific care instructions for the days following your procedures. You may be up and walking around within a few hours of your surgery, or you may need to rest and take it easy for the first few days. Dr. Koger will outline a schedule for him to monitor your progress after your surgery.
Getting Back to Normal Following Plastic Surgery
Plan on limiting your activity for the first few weeks following your surgery. Rigorous activities like running and intense sports should be limited. You may be able to go back to work as quickly as several days, or it may be up to 10 days before you are able to return.
Remember that you may not see results the same day as your procedure. Your body needs time to heal and within time you will enjoy your rejuvenated appearance.
