Blepharoplasty – eyelid surgery

Males with   heavily hooded or saggy upper eyelids, or baggy lower lids are   repeatedly told  that they look ” tired” If this is a scenario that you’re familiar with,chances are you need eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty. This procedure can be performed alone, but is commonly done in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or browlift.


The term facelift still has people retreating. We have visions of wind swept faces, staring at us from expressionless eyes. Poor Mickey Rourke, or if you’re a rocker – Axl Rose! Choosing the best surgeon to perform facial surgery for you is daunting. Dr McGovern has been performing facelift surgery for men and women since 1994.


One of the first places to show age on a male is their neck.Commonly they lose the youthful angle of the neckline and find they develop fat in the neck and around the jaw line. Jowling of the neck and lower face are common. In some cases fat in the neck area is genetic. Regardless of the reason necklift  is a very effective way of addressing the problem.

Forehead Lift- Browlift

A forehead lift or “browlift” is a procedure that restores a more youthful, refreshed look to the area above the eyes. It stops you looking stressed and tired.. The procedure corrects brows that have drooped over time and improves the horizontal lines and furrows that can make a person appear angry, sad or tired.In a browlift , the muscles and tissues that cause the furrowing or drooping are removed or altered to smooth the forehead, raise the eyebrows and minimize frown lines.

Rhinoplasty – nose job

Rhinoplasty(nose job) can change the shape of your nose by: removing humps,straightening a crooked nose, reducing or increasing the length, narrowing or increasing the tip or the bridge, reducing nostril flare,lifting the tip, lengthening your upper lip. It may also correct a birth defect or injury, or help relieve some breathing problems.

Otoplasty – prominent ears

How many times have you looked at someone with the “VW doors” or “bat wing ears” and thought, you really should get those fixed! Otoplasty is a very straight forward procedure that has been performed in the same manner by Dr McGovern for many years. We now also commonly see men who have had “stretchers” in the past, but want to repiar the defect. If you have lived with either of these problems, Dr McGovern and the team at Vie Intitute are here to make is easy for you.Well why wait?

Abdominoplasty – tummy tuck

As we age we tend to put on weight, particularly around the middle. The abdomen and hips are the two areas most men complain about, and just can’t seem to shift. In many instances Liposuction can be used to effectively remove the unwanted fat. However, if the problem is more than just an excess of fat, then Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) is the procedure required.

Liposuction/ Liposculpture

Typically males carry weight on their abdomen, hips (“love handles”), on the chest, along their chin and the neck. If this sounds like you and you are at, our close to your ideal weight, then liposuction / liposculpture may be able to help you to attain a more proportionate appearance.

Male Breast Reduction – Gynaecomastia

Gynaecomastia often coined “man boobs”, has two seperate causes. One is an overgrowth of breast tissue, whilst the other is an excessive amount of fat over the breast. The procedure chosen to remove the gynaecomastia will depend on which of these problem you have.Gynaecomastia is simply the name of the procedure chosen to return your chest to a more masculine contour.
