A man's outer appearance should accurately reflect his inner masculinity. Today, more men are realizing that cosmetic procedures can help them achieve this by helping them feel confident. It is important to recognize that there are differences between the profiles and preferences of both men and women. From one man to the next, the "Focused for You" protocols from Dr. John Stratis and Dr. Scott Gayner offer several treatment options at their plastic surgery practice in Harrisburg, PA. Each of these treatment options are tailored specifically to balance, complement, and enhance the features of individual patients.
Today's men are more inclined to actively improve and maintain their appearance, and there are several reasons for this; from a fresh face providing an edge in the job market, to a more toned and sculpted physique boosting popularity on social media, to even attracting potential partners on online dating platforms where users are expected to have multiple pictures posted.

We understand that each man is unique in his specific aesthetic goals. Our extensive range of treatments can refine existing features, prevent or treat signs of aging, and provide a healthier, rejuvenated appearance overall. While nearly all of our treatments can be performed on both men and women, the application must be tailored specifically for men.
For example, the wrinkle-reducing neuromodulator BOTOX® comes in the same formulation no matter who the patient is, but the amount used and where it is injected varies from patient to patient. The trend for BOTOX® usage is reducing the appearance of fatigue, rather than trying to look 10 years younger. The goal of male facial rejuvenation involves an overall refreshment, but may leave a select few facial lines behind to enhance an aura of maturity.
Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States and is performed very differently between men and women. Men tend to appreciate a stronger, straighter, and less narrow nose, and may require a specific approach to accommodate thicker or oilier skin.
Body contouring procedures also focus on specific areas for enhancement or reduction. While most women favor an hourglass figure, our male clients tend to prefer a more tapered physique.
One of the most common procedures Dr. Stratis performs on men is gynecomastia (male breast) reduction to correct overdeveloped male breast tissue. This typically has no identifiable cause. Many men feel self-conscious about having "man boobs", and this procedure can reduce excess breast and fatty tissue to reveal sculpted and well-defined pectoral muscles underneath.
Fat reduction options typically focus on areas where men tend to develop fat over time, such as the spare tire and love handles. For those men who are within a healthy weight range but struggle to contend with diet- and exercise-resistant fat, sculpting treatments can include liposuction, CoolSculpting®, SculpSure® and/or injectable Kybella®.
Excess skin in several areas of the body can remain, even after significant weight loss, as the fat deposits stretched out the tissues over time. This sagging skin can be excised and/or tightened with comprehensive post-massive weight loss surgery.
For some men, aging tends to result in lax, weakened skin and muscle tissue at the abdomen, which can occur on their own or be accompanied by excess fat deposits. This skin can be taken out, and remaining skin and muscle tissues can be tightened, with a gut or tummy tuck.
